Exhibit A:




Exhibit B:

An unsilenced gunshot is around 140 to 160 decibels--that's in the range where hearing it once can permanently damage your ears. If you've never had a gun go off next to you, trust us when we say it's loud enough that your whole body will flinch at the sound of it. A silencer can get that all the way down to 120 or 130 decibles, aka the sound of a jackhammer. Still loud enough to cause physical pain if it's close enough to you.

So a silencer really just makes a large gun sound like a smaller gun.

That's why most people in the know refer to them as sound suppressors, not silencers.

Really don't like how some series have lower episode counts these days. I only subscribe to Cinemax for Banshee and Strike Back, with them limiting the run I feel "cheated." That's not the right term but I don't know how to describe it.

Epic episode and epic season. I can't believe it came and went that fast. One of the few shows that I watched in real time or as close of in real time as it comes....

See you in 2016 Banshee!!
It bothered me too that no one noticed that Job was missing. I know they were occupied with Gordon but you'd think that someone would have taken a head count.We finally started to get the back story on Hood so I'm sure that next season that will play out even more and is probably tied in to who took Job. You're right that was a fast 10 weeks.

Ana Ayora Books ‘Banshee’ Role
By Erik Pedersen | Wednesday, April 1, 2015 | deadline.com

Ana Ayora (The Big Wedding, Chop Shop) has booked a season-long arc on Season 4 of Cinemax’s. The drama series from Alan Ball centers on Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, PA, where he continues his criminal pursuits while enforcing his own code of justice. Ayora will play Nina Cruz, a smart, tough, streetwise deputy for the Banshee Sheriff’s Department who really is an inside plant working for Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen). Skilled with lethal fighting techniques and a killer instinct, she is a perfect blunt instrument for carrying out Proctor’s more nefarious and violent errands. Repped by Innovative Artists and Main Title Entertainment, Ayora next will be seen in Ride Along 2.

CINEMAX ANNOUNCES START OF PRODUCTION FOR FOURTH SEASON OF HIT ACTION SERIES "BANSHEE"

Eliza Dushku Joins Cast

NEW YORK, April 8, 2015 - Production has begun in Pittsburgh on the fourth season of the Emmy(R)-winning CINEMAX action series BANSHEE, it was announced today by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. The eight-episode season will air in 2016, with Alan Ball, Greg Yaitanes, Jonathan Tropper, Peter Macdissi, Adam Targum and Ole Christian Madsen executive producing.

BANSHEE concluded its third season last month, achieving record ratings for CINEMAX as well as critical acclaim. Yahoo! named it "TV's best action show," while the A.V. Club described the series as "one of the best things on television, period." The Huffington Post called the show "wildly witty," and Grantland said BANSHEE is "a whole hell of a lot of fun."

Debuting in Jan. 2013, BANSHEE stars Antony Starr ("Wish You Were Here") as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal pursuits while enforcing his own code of justice.

Other cast includes Ivana Milicevic (the upcoming "Aloha," HBO's "Mind of the Married Man") as Carrie Hopewell, a notorious jewel thief who lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with her new family, which has recently learned of her criminal past; Ulrich Thomsen ("The Celebration") as Lucas' arch-enemy, Kai Proctor, an intimidating, wealthy businessman who believes he is above the law; Hoon Lee ("The Blacklist") as Job, a dangerous transvestite computer hacker who assists Lucas and Carrie in their criminal enterprises; Frankie Faison ("The Good Wife," HBO's "The Wire") as Sugar Bates, a wise and powerful former boxer who owns the local watering hole and serves as confidante to Lucas and Job; Matt Servitto (HBO's "The Sopranos") as Brock Lotus, Lucas' long-suffering veteran deputy; Ryann Shane ("Lights Out") as Deva Hopewell, Carrie's teenage daughter, who is rattled after learning Lucas fathered her; Lili Simmons (HBO's "True Detective") as Rebecca Bowman, Proctor's sexy niece, who has taken on a larger role in his criminal activities; Matt Rauch ("The Blacklist," "The Wolf of Wall Street") as Clay Burton, Proctor's multifaceted, complicated bodyguard and right-hand man; Tom Pelphrey ("The Following") as Kurt Bunker, a former skinhead who joins the Banshee sheriff's department as a deputy; and Chris Coy ("The Walking Dead," HBO's "Treme") as Calvin Bunker, Kurt's unsavory brother, who has kept his Nazi ties.

New to the cast are Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") as Veronica Dawson, a tough, sexy and shockingly reckless FBI profiler with no shortage of personal demons, who joins forces with Lucas, and Ana Ayora ("The Big Wedding") as Nina Cruz, a Banshee deputy working as an inside plant for Proctor.
