Ray Donovan on SHO - Page 8

post #211 of 252
Great show, One thing I'm guessing Ray doesn't get killed. tongue.gif Unless they plan on changing the name. Terry Donavan? The Avi show, I think not. Liv, Jon Voight really are nailing it.

Fantastic show indeed. Hopefully Ray doesn't get killed off. They do have to change-up next season somehow though.

Ray really didn't want the story about him being molested to get out. That scene had me saying "holy sh*t!"

It's telling that for next season the show has been renamed Bunchy Donovan. biggrin.gif

Quite the shocker concerning the priest's reveal, this was a dark episode indeed. I thought that when Ray's wife saw the situation that she would understand, but even when Ray alluded to what happened, she still got bent out of shape and left. I think even Carmela Soprano would have had more empathy, to say I am sick of her sh*t, would be an understatement....

There is no way Ray gets offed, just as there is no way Mickey gets it, even though that would simplify things greatly, it is called Ray Donovan after all...and..lastly

just when Ray thinks it can get no worse, the F.B.I. guy calls....

Man, I thought my family was screwed up!

How does Ray have the gun? They never showed him with the gun. The FBI guy is the only one that has seen the body and the room since being shot.

Great episode. The wife was grating on my nerves again in the beginning but when she showed up at the gym and saw it was the priest, when she turned and told Ray she will see him at home and walked out, that was bad ass cool.

Harsh, but hilarious biggrin.gif

Mickey's gun was a revolver , the same gun he put at the girls head when doing the BJ , same gun he shot the FBI agent with ( there was a scene shot where they showed Mickey holding the gun right after the guys brains went across the wall & photos ;
The gun Bunchy shot the priest with was a big auto . Not the same gun smile.gif

I said to my wife as Abby was reaching to top of the stairs & her face changed , as she realized she had seen that priest before , I said {Abby's gonna say "I see you at home Ray & walk out " }
AND then she said something to that same effect , turned around & walked out Ignoring the guy's pleas for help .
I agree that Abby understood & had no concern for the priest's on going welfare , once she knew who it was .
Black Irish is now a true "Donovan "

Masterpiece.

What a show this is. One we'll watch for years. Liev Schreiber as Ray and Steven Bauer as Avi - you can't take your eyes off them. Fabulous writing, plenty of good old ultraviolence. This is kind of a golden age for television. Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Dexter, Ray Donovan, The Bridge, Rectify, The Americans, Boardwalk Empire, and a bunch of others that are in the neighborhood.

Holy sh*t, that was an amazing season finale.

A++ show
post #227 of 252
Looking forward to watching this, I've been pleasantly surprised with every episode! The quality keeps going up and up. I'm excited to watch.
post #228 of 252
Great show, again. Jon Voight owns that part.

I am looking forward to round 2 of Ray Ray smile.gif

So instead of leaving town he sticks around?

Of course he's one of the best characters but it looks like he was alienated from his sons and even the daughter in law.

It was a text book example on how to properly make a TV show season finale. The final shot on the beach just smacked of quality.

And weirdness. Ray is asleep, we think, covered in blood. The son and daughter casually walk up and sit down. Neither one checks to see if their father is alive but at least Conor asks if he is. The wife arrives and joins Ray and everyone acts like it's a normal day at the beach for the Donovan family. Whatever happened to Ezra's partner? He was in the show a lot in the first few episodes and then disappeared unless I'm forgetting something. Thought it was an okay first season.

Mickey just cracks me up with all the banalties he throws out.

But he's being earnest when he apologized for not taking better care of his children, though he accuses Ray Ray of not leaving the past behind, as if the traumas of their childhood could be easily forgotten.
post #233 of 252
Slow burn to an awesome ending. Not sure his family would react that way to seeing him lying there covered in blood, but that aside, I will miss this show and it will be a long wait until it comes back.
post #234 of 252
Doesn't look like the Donovan kids, Bridget & Connor have many good role models to choose from, certainly not anyone in their immediate family - looks like Lena for Bridget & Avi for Connor are providing the most sensible guidance. Will be interesting to see how/if Season 2 develops these relatinships
post #235 of 252
Will the wife be a PITA next season or has she seen the light?
post #236 of 252
I could never figure out why it took so long for Abby to conclude that Mickey is an ass, and that maybe she should give Ray's view on his own father the benefit of the doubt.
post #237 of 252
I think that final scene was to show that everyone in the Ray family now knows that Ray is their father/husband having accepted who & want he is .
Mickey's return to the fite club & just saying let's just salute life is him not wanting to give up on his sons , his hope they don't give up on him , his hope he can now be a family member .
I loved that Big smile on the FBI agent's face as they loaded Sully's body in to the meat wagon .

Great first season, hopefully this will stick around for a few more.

I think the executive producer also did The Brotherhood, Showtime's attempt to answer The Sopranos. It was good but didn't get the ratings.

Hopefully this does better. They did get a lot of big names in the cast, though mostly stars well past their primes, and they promoted it for months before debuting.

It didn't generate the buzz like Homeland.

Benefited from Dexter as a lead in especially this past Sunday with the series finale. Interesting to see where it lands next year.
