Between the the interest in Lili Simmons, Amish girls leaving the fold, and that other show with questionable law enforcement practices (also this one) I decided to check out Cinemax’s Banshee. To quote our earlier review:
Banshee is more of what you’d expect from a Cinemax series: There’s more violence, and a lot more sex. But the writing is surprisingly sharp […] it could make for a guilty — and maybe even compelling — Friday night series.
Almost two seasons in, I generally agree with that review. It’s not the best show ever, but I’ve been entertained enough to follow it this far. So ends the non-spoilery parts of the post; on to the recap.
After finding him last week, Job decides to go Rabbit hunting on his own. It does not go so well.
Meanwhile, Burton (who I’ve been calling Owen this whole time) enjoys tying up a loose end.
And Longshadow boldly decides to goes against Kai.
With Job in the hospital, Hood and Ana have to go to New York to get him before Rabbit does. While Hood has to leave a sheer topped Siobhan, Carrie has to leave a dumbfounded Gordan after telling him that Hood is Deva’s father.
Once at the hospital, sh*t goes down.
While it doesn’t end well for the security guard
Hood and Ana of course survive and get Job out alive.
All this sets up next week’s season finale to be another showdown with Rabbit. I doubt that both parties will survive this time.
