It’s kill or be killed in the Season 2 finale of Banshee, “Bullets and Tears”
The not-quite-dead gangster Rabbit is hiding out in NYC with his priestly brother. But in the Banshee season 2 finale, Hood and Carrie are heading into a final showdown. Well, hopefully a final showdown. Rabbit miraculously survived the last one.
This season of Banshee has been a total thrill ride, and if you’ve not been glued to every single episode, I suggest you go right back and watch it all over again. I plan to. The future’s decidedly uncertain for Hood and Carrie as it looks like the latter wants to rekindle things with her husband. Let’s take a look at the spoilers for what looks like an epic season finale…
Hood’s history revealed?
He’s been known only as Lucas Hood since the show began, but we still don’t know who he was before he assumed a dead sheriff’s identity. Bullets And Tears promises to give us some answers as we get an extended flashback to Hood and Carrie’s days working for Rabbit. The episode promises to take us back to the same heist in which Hood and Carrie swindled Rabbit and stole his diamonds.
At one point during the planning, Job mentions a name – Tom Palmer. Whether that’s an alias for Hood during that job or whether it’s his real identity remains to be seen. The question is, do we really want to discover his past? Okay, probably.
Rabbit himself appears at one point to be talking about the showdown – he promises bullets and tears before the ordeal is over. And with Carrie and Hood warning Job that if they don’t come back they’re most probably dead.
One thing about Banshee is that when a character says something as dramatic as that, they probably mean it. There’s a pretty solid chance that one of the duo won’t be returning to Banshee after this.
What’s happening in Banshee?
There’s not actually much in the latest trailer to show what’s going on back in Banshee. All we see is Rebecca lying on the ground covered in blood. Someone’s on top of her, but we’re not sure whether it’s Longshadow or Proctor’s Lurch, Burton. And whether the blood belongs to her or the person on top.
Still, there’s nothing on Proctor. Nothing on the strange new twist concerning Sugar and Proctor’s history. Nothing on what’s happening now that Gordon knows his daughter is really Hood’s. Those storylines will either be resolved in the finale or carried on to Season 3.
Speaking of Sugar though…can anybody explain what the hell this shot is about?
The second season finale of Banshee airs on Friday March 14.
