Need a Shield fix? FX has you covered - VIDEO
Let's get this out of the way. If you don't want to know anything about the upcoming final season of The Shield, then stop reading right now because this is 100% as spoiler-ish as it gets. First FX teased us with some uninformative promos, then they threw us some cast interviews, and they finally set a premiere date of Tuesday, September 2nd. That's not all though. Now FX has added a ton of scenes and clips from the final season to The Shield's website. So - I say it again - stop now if you don't want to be spoiled. But if you're weak like me, fun starts after the jump.
OK this is great - I almost feel guilty for watching all 20 scenes. That's right, there's 20 of 'em. And they're all around a minute long. That's like half an episode of The Shield and when you consider that there's only 13 installments left, 20 minutes is a hefty chunk.
Part of it was a little confusing for me only because it's been so long since season six and I had to really reach into the back of my head to recall certain story-lines that got referenced. There's a lot of good stuff though. Dutch is still bagging serial killers, Billings continues to milk that "injury" of his, Vic and Aceveda are still at odds, and there's even a new character that gets introduced - Olivia, a government agent who has some connection to the infamous Cruz Pezuela.
You'll have to check out the site if you want to watch them all, but I embedded my favorite one below. Vic and Ronnie finally nab Shane (I assume this is taken from the season premiere) after he kidnapped Corinne and the kids and the truth about what the Armenians know finally comes out. This season is gonna be great.
