Quick thoughts...

- Billings as captain = new whipping boy for everyone in the Barn. Should provide some good comic relief. Will he last the whole season?

- I thought Forest Whittaker was good. Slick move making nice with Vic's wife. I'm interested to see what her reaction will be when she finds out/is told he's IAD.

- The kid trying to escape on the mini bike and Shane listening to the Ipod of the guy Ronnie beat the shit out of were my funniest moments.

- Wonder where they're going with Claudette's mystery ailment and if it affects her and Dutch as a team. (Figure it has to, really.)

Wow, what a great episode. The funeral/cafeteria riots were so intense. Easily the most satisfying premiere I've seen in ages.

It certainly has a "final season" feel to it, but it's nice to see the writers reward the long-time viewer by going back to the pilot.

Nice to see Ronnie finally make the opening credits.

Interestingly enough, Cathy Cahlin Ryan also made the opening credits as well.

I'm curious about where things are going with Dutch and Tina, the new hottie uniform. She certainly seemed to enjoy the fact that he enjoyed her presence. Dutch rules, but he's not on the show as a "get-laid" guy. I really see her leading him around by the nose for whatever purposes.

It is good to see Julian in this leadership position. The whole idea of him training Tina lends to the realistic feeling of the show. He's been on the streets for like four years now, and we've all seen him grow from a naive rookie into a good cop. Plus, it gives the guy (who really is a good actor...Season 1) something to do besides background stuff.

I'm also very curious about who the father of Danny's baby is. Some of the choices in the pool (Gilroy's liver, Monica Rawling) were pretty clever, but I'm going to go with either Vic or Ronnie. Ronnie because it'd be a nice twist and would really open the door for character development, and Vic because it is the most obvious choice, and The Shield is pretty good about avoiding unnecessary curveballs for the sole purpose of "swerving." Although if they decided to go that route, it'd be an interesting swerve if the daddy was Taylor, the fence from Seasons 2, 3, and 4 who had the hots for Danny a couple of years ago.

Great episode, though...Forest Whitaker was great.
