What the fuck was Shane thinking?


He is as good as dead now, he better have some sort of plan to explain his actions.

Lem should have just went to Mexico.

When does the last season start?

That ending makes me sad. Lem was by far my favorite, and he seemed like the guy who was the most good. So I guess he had to die. Still, if they're trying to get me to root for IAD, they're getting there. I just wish it was Dutch going after the boys, instead of the infinately unlikeable Kavanaugh. I'm really going to miss Lem.

I can't wait until next season. I have a feeling we have a long wait, as Theif has to make it's run, and then I bet Nip/Tuck comes back. I doubt FX wants to blow its load with both of it's marquee shows on at the same time, so I'd bet that Vic and the guys come back early next year. They haven't shot any new episodes yet, as far as I've read.

It's odd. Everything about the way this season was winding down indicated that it would be the end of the series. Everyone I talked with at work about the show was thinking someone would go to jail (likely Vic, perhaps all of them) and that would end it. The ending of tonight's show turns that on its ear, but still, considering there's been no chatter about shooting for a new season and also that Shawn Ryan is doing The Unit on CBS, I've gotta wonder. It's really hard to imagine there wouldn't be followup to what happened.

As soon as Shane went to the car to get the food for Lem, my friend and I looked at each other and he said to me "I don't think I like what's about to happen." That was the most "holy shit" moment of the show, perhaps ever, even more than when Vic shot Terry. The more you sit and think about it, the more you realize it's not terribly far to go to believe Shane would do such a thing, but the shock of the moment was just incredible.

They've guaranteed a new season. This is just the end of the first half of this season. It's after the next 11 (or so) episodes (shown later this year, early next) where we have to wonder if they're bringing the show back. They're writing new episodes now, and Chiklis and co are trying to find time to shoot new episodes, either before or after the next F4 movie.

According to this article (theedge.bostonherald.com), they start shooting next month, but who knows.

There's also an article in the NY Post from Tuesday that says that Ryan has just started writing for part two of this season, and will not make a decision on season six until he decides the fate of the main characters. Sounds like it might be up to him and Chiklis.

I believe i had read that this was supposed to be a 22 or 23 episode season, and they split it in two, to make two seasons.

Either way, the "oh shit" look on Shane's face when Vic said "We're going to find who did this, and kill them" was most classic thing ever.

Lem was a good guy, hell, he got outed trying to help a fucking crying kid. How sad is that?



I also like how Claudette let Vic and Kavanah beat each other up for a few minutes before telling the guys to break it up.

Just before he gets shot in the face, he'll probably explain that he was only doing what Vic had done by killing Terry. The talk Vic and Shane had outside the barn kinda foreshadowed it, with Shane telling Vic that Vic did what had to be done to protect them. And they thought Lem had flipped. It's quite a situation, because it really makes Vic, Kavanaugh, and Acevada responsible for Lem's death in various ways, too. Not legally responsible, but they all unknowingly helped set it in motion.

They hinted during the season that Shane might flip to protect himself, but I never imagined him killing Lem. Good lord.

Again, Shane tries to be Vic, and again, Shane totally messes everything up. Would like to think that Shane wasn't just thinking things through, but remembering to bring a hand grenade with you so that you can blow somebody up good is a pretty good indicator that he thought about what he needed to do. Kind of funny that the team used to get all over Shane because of Mara, and now she's the reason why Lem died (well, one of the major reasons)...

As pissed as I was about Shane's actions tonight, I can't help but laugh at his ringtone. Haha, that was classic. And maybe Dutch needs to stay away from any interaction with criminals -- they've got a way of getting inside his head.

Damn ... kinda funny that earlier in the episode, I thought to myself "Kenny Johnson deserves some sort of Emmy recognition for this season" and then BOOM ...

I was really hoping that Vic would beat the shit out of Kavanaugh, but I did like the fact that they didn't totally puss Kavanaugh out.

Who's seen this yet? I went in, expecting not to take this movie too seriously and I came out pleasantly entertained.
