The Shield: Man Inside
I have to say that I thought Vic was losing his edge quite a bit when talking with his lawyer, though thankfully the writers made up for it during the meeting with Corinne. Vic was ready to throw out some incredibly lame excuses for taking $65k for his family, though his chose to take his licks and make sure his kids are taken care of.
The interaction between the other Strike Team members is very heated now. Shane is clearly out for himself, as he
seems to even want to turn on Vic at this point. It's incredibly idiotic of them to want to talk to Kavanaugh without a
lawyer. However, dragging four different lawyers into the talks would definitely turn Kavanaugh upside-down.
So, it looks like Claudette's out of the picture for good. I'd be surprised if she survived that episode and fall. One of the other officers even remarked about how her neck was all twisted, which spelled outright doom for the woman. So, one down, one to go. After seeing the previews for next week, I might have to say that Vic's old CI may be the one to go, as she fits the definition of someone who holds the key to bringing the Strike Team down. With her gone, there's little case against Lem, I believe.
Antwon Mitchel. Next week. Is it possible something with that old phone-cam picture will come back to haunt Aceveda afterall? It seems unlikely, but isn't that one of those storylines that just seemed dropped on the floor and forgotten? Speaking of dropped storylines, what about Dutch and killing the cats? Julien's I'm-not-gay story? Am I missing anything?
Quote of the episode: "Why don't you tickle your balls on your own time."
