Who has almost the same voice are the Bichir brothers, they most be having some great fun working together..

I wonder if Diane and Franka speak German between themselves on the set..

Stephanie Sigman speaks some great English, even better than Demian, heck waaaaay better than Linder! LOL

It would help me a lot if Directv would get their closed captioning synced up, a lot of the time, if you have them it's a lot easier to understand the characters when you can actually read what is being said, after a few times the subs aren't really necessary.

People here get upset when that's said.

What was the significance of Sonja's leaving the locket of hair with the homeless lady in a box?

Well, it makes me pretty damn upset!

I usually understand him just fine, but I did have to rewind to fully understand his talk at the end of last episode.

As for the homeless woman, I believe that was Sonya's mother being given Lisa's hair as a form of closure.

I was wondering about that. I forgot she still had a mother and there was nothing in the preview to remind the audience of what hapoened to her.

I'm still wondering who Nacht killed at Red Ridge in the opening episode. A lot of blood and someone lost a hand but it was never really clarified. Was it the henchman who she then carried to the car and arranged?

Well, that episode answers the house massacre mystery that was fast-forwarded to at the beginning of the season.

Now with a presumably vengeful Eleanor, I no longer think that Fausto will make it by the end of the season. She's probably the most formidable of his many enemies.

Action packed episode tonight, a lot went down that is for sure. Looks like we got about 4 episodes remaining. What is Sonya gonna do now? Hank wasn't looking too good where we last left him, sometimes I really hate previews. I'm gonna have to watch that last scene again and try to get a handle on all the players that were involved in that fracas.

Not quite. There was a severed hand in the opening episode and nobody was attacked by machete in the gunfight.

What a dumb, anticlimactic hitman. They set him up as some kind of powerful adversary but not even the irony of dying in the grave he dug made him worthwhile.

First off why was he digging the hole? He should have made Sonya do it. Second, why help her take a leak? She was going to die, he should have made her go in her pants. For a "demon" hitman he sure didn't have a grasp on evil, efficiency or cold-bloodedness.

My presumption is that Eleanor and perhaps Cesar will later hack up the bodies for dumping.

The hitman situation had me perplexed as well. On top of all that he was apparently trying to dig all the way to the other side of the planet.

The hitman was digging Sonja's grave. It was his way or torturing her, making her watch him dig her grave. But as others have said, he wasn't very bright.


I think there will be one more killing spree at that house. The first scene will undoubtedly be the last scene of the season. Guess we have a few more episodes to find that out.

As MRM said he was making her watch him dig her grave, she would have never done it. Her torture at the time was knowing she was in the middle of nowhere watching him dig her own gave and she wasn't able to escape. Even demon hitmen have a code, obviously letting her go to the bathroom was one of the things he was willing to do for her. Sometimes having a reputation as a demon is MUCH easier to pull off then actually being one. We have seen this over and over in TV and movies where the supposedly most evil hitmen are more reputation than anything....

A lame way of torturing her considering she was almost passed out and then ran away while he kept digging in the hot sun.

The mafia could teach him a thing or two. Maybe he should have watched Casino.

Or The Good The Bad and The Ugly.

I guess Fausto's hitmen used cop killer bullets, at least Hank was wearing one down but we saw blood... the feds we couldn't see if they had any under their jackets but they looked dead so I guess not.

Can't wait for next week.

The new trend, everybody gets blown away instantly, in the not too recent past we would have had a shootout, people shooting at each other for 10 minutes at point blank range and not managing to hit anything, but there would be other shots that nailed the bad guys with the precision of an olympic sharpshooter. I have seen the 2nd season of the Swedish/Danish version and I wonder if the writers will use any of the material from it, they said they were going there own way in this second season, but I'll be curious to see how the US version ends.

He told her, you can run, I'll find you when I'm done. If it weren't for the conveniently placed person at the bike club then he would have just walked to grab her. She really had no where far to go.

Vests aren't that good. They can prevent penetration to the center mass but the more bullets that get fired at once the greater the likelihood some will hit at the weak points the vest doesn't cover like collar, shoulders, below waist etc.

Not to mention not all are designed to stop assault rifle rounds, that's why some come with ceramic plate inserts. Regular cops don't usually wear the heavier stuff.

Yet he kept on digging his massive hole without her watching. If a torturer digs a hole and nobody is watching, does it still need digging?

Lame hitman with no skill for torture or efficiency. Didn't deserve a cool nickname or any reputation when one of the grunts could have done a better job.

I thought Fausto asked for a "quiet" killer and he was pretty quiet to me, was going to kill her far off, nobody would hear her scream, nobody would find her... that's pretty evil I might say..

And he took her to a quiet, isolated place and then apparently told someone exactly where it was. Why did he need to? He didn't need any help so he just left loose ends for no reason.

You made me think of that gun fight scene in The Naked Gun 2½ where Frank and the bad guy were 5ft. apart yet kept missing each other, and Frank was crouched behind a flimsy garbage can. That was very relevant parody at the time.

*shrug* we don't even know how he was going to kill her, so the waiting to die was only part of the torture.

Since we don't know the backstory there is no way to know how that guy knew where he'd be. Usually in those bike clubs they don't snitch.

Of course this IS a TV show that needed to wrap this part of the story quickly to move the story along. While I agree the situation was too convenient I didn't let that bother me as much as it seems to have bothers you.

I think the other biker guy knew where "The Chopper" usually disposes of his victims...

Man I didn't want to lose Charlotte, well maybe the actor's quota was too high, since they are now introducing that other girl.. (weird she looks american, but she's Mexican and doesn't look like her father, her mother must be blonde)..

I'm going to miss Charlotte, too. After the first season I thought the writers would have something really big planned for her as she seemed to be a genuine survivor, but I guess it was not meant to be.

Miss Charlotte was great. She'll be missed. "What about Alaska? F%$k Alaska!" That weasel boyfriend of hers Ray is something else. Uh, what happened to the horse???

I would think Hank has to live for the series to go on. I just don't see a season three without him. Marco, Sonya & Hank are the backbone of the series with a lot of great actors as well. Franka Potente shows her stuff - what a bizarre lady. That's a type you don't want to be sitting next to when the bar is closing....

Who woulda thunk an actor (Ted Levine) as creepy as he was in The Silence of the Lambs would be such a affable character in The Bridge. That's character acting at its finest.
