Another wild episode that helps set up the season even more now. The ending with Rawling at the house and the shot of her walking out of it saying "Take it" was just bad ass. It looks like Shane's wife is on some sort of drugs and was it just me or did the baby look to have some sort of cut on it's head?
I'm sensing a horrific post-partum baby tragedy for Shane and his wife.
As usual Dutch steals the show. He's my favorite by far, and it's going to be great to see him "control" Claudette, and even better to see her reaction when she inevitably finds out what he was doing. I really hope that they get some good cases for a while, because it's fun to watch Dutch work a case.
Still no Tavon. I'm a little bummed about that, but hopefully he'll show up sometime and learn the truth about the night he got beat up. I'd love to see a Tavon/Shane showdown.

I didn't want to say it, but I was thinking the same thing. Mara + PPD = bad.
This was a great episode, and Dutch is my favorite character, too. He was so out of line with that Middle Eastern family, but I couldn't help but laugh. I do respect his loyalty to his partner, though, and Claudette really owes him one.
I was really impressed with Julian this episode. Unfortunately, he didn't have enough cred with the young banger to get the right answer from him, but his willingness to give him a chance and some hope really showed how much he has grown since the first season.
All those killings over a "stank ho." Unreal. I never saw that twist coming.
Good episode that, as said, continues to set things up for the rest of the season.

I have to think Claudette will sniff that out fairly quickly because she'll want to know what made the DA's office change it's tune rapidly when she hasn't altered her stance at all. We may have Dutch's "I'm smarter than everyone else" get him in hot water trying to control things like he thinks he can while still maintaining a good partnership.
About Shane's new home life, I'm wondering if he'll wish he wasn't married with a kid at a time when he's got things set up the way he wants (mostly) on the job. At some point I can envision Shane asking Vic about what to do when domestic bliss hits the fan.
That was the reaction from the piewife and myself as well. We expected this show to be total crap, but decided to tape it and watch after we got our fill of the craptastic Big Brother 5. Joey has some promise.
