Banshee has been renewed for another season.

I don't see that party ending well for Deva. How is she still that naive and trusting? Carrie dropped the ball there. It's great that even though they had that moment together, Burton isn't automatically loyal to Rebecca. Not looking forward to the breakdown of relations between her and Kai, though. They made a good team. He dropped the ball on teaching her patience and strategy.

Damn, this show is good. Not at all the episode I was expecting after the previous. Loved the compare/contrast with the fantasy sequences.

When the episode started with Hood not talking, I began hoping that would continue (except for the flashbacks) until the end. I thought it would have been a really interesting experiment, and one that I feel Banshee is more than capable of pulling off, but despite not getting my wish, I felt it was a really strong installment. That said, I do feel it was a bit of a cop-out that Chayton managed to survive. I mean until this time Hood has been a crack shot.

Ugh, the confrontation with Chayton at the end was so frustrating. Always go for the kill rather than play with the superstrong villain who's already proven himself freakishly impervious to damage. Lucas makes terrible decisions all the damn time but I'd expect at least Job to make him finish it quickly.

I have no love for the Chayton plot so I was also irritated he didn't die. However, the show has been strongly emphasizing that Hood is taking Siobhan's death very, very hard. He's not thinking straight (less so than usual) plus he wanted to torture Chayton and "sshing" him (as Chayton ssshed Siobhan) was an important part of getting vengeance.

And practically speaking, Chayton's death would mean less adversaries for Hood (Kai is grieving and the corrupt military guy isn't exactly the one trying to pick a fight with Hood).

When Hood went for Chayton's thigh, I thought for sure he was going for the femoral artery. So disappointing, when it turned out to be just a sloppy flesh wound, even with the twisting.

Yes, me too! I thought for sure the show was gonna have fun with blood spraying everywhere. Then instead: lurch, punch, splash, meh.
