I am distraught.

Well - let me see if my needles can comfort me ...

Yep- pretty intense episode. I knew something bad was coming, but I surely didn't see that! It didn't really seem like a finale so much, as in the fact that usually The Shield kind of cleans up the season's messes and then the next season starts with a new "problem" and yet I don't see it starting over with anything different next season.

Yes, that's the right word - "intense".
They will certainly pick up with this next season, but I'm sure there will be a new problem too. Usually, they do a pretty good job with cleaning up the seasons' messes. But not always. I'm still waiting to see where the Tavon Garris issue goes. That can't possibly be the end of that.

*sigh. I just can't get my mind around Lem!!! Just ... why why why??? I was okay with him going to prison, or going to Mexico. But this? I ... I ... :wall: :verysad:

Hopefully you will get a chance to see it. It was awful, but worth seeing.

It really makes me sick, and I am afraid that I don't quite understand the motivation- the premeditated, calculated planning!

I can't imagine what Vic will do to Shane when it comes out!

I can't imagine what Vic will do to Shane when it comes out! I totally can't wait until it comes out. I have faith in Dutch!!! He'll pull out the truth!!! I seriously don't understand Shane. The situation was desperate, but I don't think it was THAT desperate ... Sheesh ... what ever happened to friendship?? I'm not so sure the Vic will do anything but be upset. He covers up Shane's messes all the time. I hope this time will be different, but I just don't know. :(

He may not do anything specifically to Shane, but they do ALWAYS take it out on someone! Did he just do it because Lem said he wouldn't go to Mexico? Was it about the money that they pooled or were they afraid that he would testify against them on the Armenian money train thing? I can't remember if someone told them about Lem being approached for witness protection?

I hope Vic does do something TO Shane. Shane needs a good arse kickin' in a SERIOUS way!!! Especially NOW!!!

I don't recall anyone mentioning "witness protection" to the Strike Team (TST). The only person I remember even saying those words is the lawyer.

I think TST was just lead to believe that Lem cut a "new deal" that included flipping, but not necessarily witness protection.

Shane's just such a D!<k!!!!! He totally jumped the gun, the little chicken $h!^ :mad:

I haven't seen it yet...because we don't get that channel...but we are totally hooked onThe Shield! What a great show! Our library has all the past seasons and we're just about to start watching season 4. Right after I got hooked (early in season 3 -- DH has watched 1-3) I told my husband that now I TOTALLY understand why this show wins all those Emmys. :thumbsup:

It is a great show. Although, it has totally hurt my feelings with recent events. Why why why? Just, Why!?!

I really need to start collecting the DVD's though.

$h!^ - January is SUCH long time away. I'm still stewing over this! I knew Shane was going to do something very bad when they met ... first I thought he was going to shoot him, then when they mentioned the food - I thought he poisoned it.

But a grenade!!!??!!! WTF?? I just ... :wall: Why didn't he just wait for the rest of the team. I really think they could have talked him into Mexico. Boy did Shane just nose dive off the deep end!!!!


PS: Can you ad a spoiler warning to your post too please ;)

I don't think it will have as much impact if you just start out watching this season. I'd start with Season 1. No worries - you have a whole year to catch up. It won't take that long.

At any rate - Shane is the one with the receding hairline and big teeth. He has dark hair, what's left of it. *lol

SPOILERS AHEAD

I think Shane did it because he is so selfish and didn't want the Strike Team to get any jail time because I think he believed Lem spilled the beans about the Armenian Money Train. I cried a lot...I love Lem. And I really like Shane too, but that was so unbelievable.

I do think that Shane really planned to do it, then after he did it, I think he wished he could have taken it back...I was glad that he cried too at least. And the fact that Lem wasn't dead right away will probably haunt Shane forever.

I think Vic will kill Shane next season when he finds out. He loves Lem too much to let Shane live.

Wonderful episode, but totally heartbreaking...best show on TV IMHO.

Wonderful episode, but totally heartbreaking...best show on TV IMHO. Shane didn't even ask if Lem flipped about the money train. He didn't even ask what Lem's new plan was when Lem said he had another one. Shane only took what Aceveda said as the truth. I just don't understand why he chose to take Aceveda so seriously this time.

I just don't have faith that Vic will do anything. :cry: I sure hope Dutch figures it out. :pray: Surely he'll realize how implausible it is that Lem (in his paranoid state) would let some "El Salvadorian" get close enough to him to drop a grenade in his car with the window rolled down in the middle of some abandoned body shop!!! C'mon!! Dutch has to think something's up!!! :pray:
