First of all, this bullshit about waiting 2 weeks for the next new episode. One of the things I love about the Shield is that they run straight through from first show to last with no breaks, unlike every damn network series. Then I thought maybe FX has some special program for the time slot next week. Nah, according the the DirecTV guide, they're showing Independence Day next Tuesday night. Twice.


Anyway, on to the show.

Aceveda's on the power trip from hell. There still isn't anything developing on how it's going to come back and bite him, which I have every confidence it will. Maybe it comes down to his affair being exposed and Rawling deciding whether or not she wants to play dirty pool with the info, just like her predecessor and top detective might. She's enough of a straight arrow that I doubt she would, but if it comes down to Aceveda or her success at the Barn who knows what she'd do.

Shane & Vic at the end was killer. The tension throughout the whole show getting there was so palpable. It was interesting to think about what Vic's emotions were when Shane asked him for help. Was it the fact that someone was reaching out to him, that someone really did need him that pulled him back from wanting to kill Shane one minute and daring Shane to kill him the next?

And what will happen when Mitchell finds out what Shane said to his right hand man? Shane's right in that he'll be #1 with a bullet on the hit list. Doesn't seem like they'll have much time or room to breathe.

Nice to see some signs of a thaw between Dutch & Claudette because it was no fun to have them hating each other. Dutch's calling the coffee bandit "Starbuck" was good.

I still can't believe we've got to wait 2 weeks for the next one.

After Shane asked Vic "Will you help me?", I half expected him to say yes and pull the trigger.

The whole two weeks thing bugs me, as well. Maybe a sweeps thing? Or maybe they just want to but the end of the Shield up with the first episode of Rescue Me (another fine show)?

Very cool use of the Alice in Chains song "Nutshell" in the beginning sequence of Vic driving around.

I wonder how the shit will hit the fan with Acevada & his "girlfriend".

Looks like the show is getting pre-empted next week for an airing of "Independence Day". Damnit.

Today was a good day for Dutch. What looked like a simple assault/robbery actually netted three different criminals. And was it just me, or was the guy playing the smoker, the one who turned himself in, really convincing? Anyway, after all that, it looks like Corinne is interested in "celebrating," which no doubt pleases Dutch. Go Dutch!

Acevada is just scary now. He sounded like a jealous boyfriend. I'm sorry he was raped last season, but he really needs someone who can help with what is going on upstairs, not down. Of course, I'm sure that won't happen and he'll get in trouble via his dick at some point.

I about shit my pants when Halpern got shot. Did Army do that on purpose? Oh, man, was that some quality drama there. Shane is in a world of hurt unless Vic helps him out, which I think he will. Question is, will this lead to the re-formation of the Strike Team somehow? Rawling has already proven she can make things happen with the brass, and she seems to like Lem and trust Vic. It could happen.

I've always liked Danny, but now I am liking her less and less. She just seems kind of easy. She was all over Vic last night just a year or so (storyline wise) he screwed up her career. She was even all over Dutchboy at the same time because he was nice enough to mentor her on a case. I mean, she seems as if she can afford to be choosy, why isn't she? Between this and the trumped up charges leading to the seizure of Vic's new ride last week, I'm not liking her as much. Of course, I could just be jealous that I'm not getting a piece.

I think the heat from her Danny's firing has been partially, if not mostly, negated since she got back to the same place she was at before on the job. Plus, she and Vic have a romantic history from the start of the series, so the familiarity between them eliminates the need for any foreplay. I think one other thing that's part of her change is the alienation between her and Julian. The failure of that partnership leads her to a stronger affiliation with Vic.

About Dutch and Corrine, a friend of mine at work brought up an interesting idea. Remember how Corrine stashed the bag of money from Vic in the kitchen cabinet? Well, if Dutch happens to stumble across that by accident when he's over at her house, is he going to immediately start wondering where it came from and thinking back to the money train investigation? That could put him on another collision course with Vic and perhaps jeopardize the relationship with Corrine if he gets nosey, which I don't think he could resist.

I think Rock could pull over either role, but look forward to him playing a villain for a change. Cap will be a tough casting decision, as it will be difficult to hold their own against Rock. Too bad Patrick Warburton isn't 10 years younger.
