This is a thread for discussing the 7th and final season of what I consider to be the best show on television: The Shield

Are there any other fans of this show on this board? Is so, what do you think of the final season so far?

Haven't seen this week's episode yet (but have it recorded), but this season seems pretty good. Can't wait to see how it all ends up...

I've been a little underwhelmed up until this last episode, when Vin's machinations began to unravel. This is always the best part of the show. I thought things were going to according to plan at first.

I also got to see more of the bumbling dutch, always trying to make something bigger than what it is or might be.

So did I actually. I think it's cool to see him slip up from time to time. I'm interested to see how his daughter is going to play into the story too moving forward.

I certainly don't think we've seen the last of her. She has a lot of pinned up anger and i think it will manifest somehow. Whatever she does it will lead to Vic's downfall.

I like Shane a bit this season. That is wierd for me. The more he talks the more I think about how what he did to Lem is what Vic has been doing to everyone. I guess now that we're a couple years removed from Lem, I have fresh eyes and "get" Shane this year.

I thought that last night's episode was pretty good. I am glad that they gave us more on the reason Agent Olivia Murray sudden showed up. Up until then, I she just seemed to be a character that was introduced just for the heck of of it. Vic admitting to Shane that he wants to stop Cruz Pezuela as a means to atone for the evil that he has committed was cool. I also liked the way that Shane is working on turning Ronnie against Vic. I don't think that Ronnie will turn on Vic but then again, you never know. I have to wonder if they are going to do any more with Dutch's storyline with his efforts to out the teenage Lloyd as a serial killer. Judging from the way the kid acted when Dutch confronted him, I have to think that Dutch is right on this one.

I don't know, Dutch always wants to be more than what he is and he is always chasing the serial killer angle. Even the FBI profiler said that he didn't see it. Yet Dutch only heard the maybe in the statement. The boy might have some demons, but serial killer may not be it.

True, but the serial killer saw it in the kid. But then again, the serial killer could have told Dutch what he wanted to hear just out of spite and Dutch often sees what he wants to see. Only time will tell if Dutch is right...or not since this is the final season. I don't know if they can fit in the storyline with all this is coming to a head with Vic, the strike team, the Armenians and the Mexican mob.

That serial killer is such a good liar, I just can't believe him. I was so upset that claudette fell right into his trap.

YOu're right I don't think they have time for another serial killer story. It's quicker if Dutch is wrong . I mean, after all he doesn't think the kid is a serial killer, he thinks the kid could be a serial killer. The kids been cleared of the first crime but how can you try him for crimes you think he is going to make in the future

I thought the new female cop was going to get fired for not clearing out that room but it seems that got pushed to the back for a bit.

It was good to see
Tavon
back, if only to give his character some closure. And to
confront Shane for what he did and for what he is capable of.

In many ways, last night's episode showed both some of the worst aspects of Shane's character and some of the best as well. As terrible as he is, Walton Goggins makes him human.

I agree, I ...I think felt sorry for Shane in that episode. This show knows how to get the motion it wants out of you. I wanted Shane dead after Lem, but now I"m not so sure and I sure don't want ronnie (i like how his character has developed) to be the one who set him up.

I was glad to see T too. We need closure on that issue.

After last night's episode, it looks like the members of the Strike Team have gone past the point of no return. Last night was definitely the beginning of the end. I have followed this show from the very beginning and it is strange and a little sad to see it begin to wrap up.

Things are certainly approaching a climax. I love how complicated the plot is, to the point where you kind of didn't want Shane's betrayal to come out the way it did. That scene was awesome, I had to watch it twice. Now that Vic's gone rogue (hasn't he always been) we really do not know where things could go as it ventures into uncharted terrortory. Vic seems to have nothing to loose... no wife, no kids, no badge

Last episode was crazy. Things are flying wild now. This show is ending well. The drama and tension is ramping up. Let's hope it's a wild ride to the end. I love watching a show where I can't predict the ending.

...

If it fades to Sopra...er...I mean black, I'm 'rounding up a posse.

It's been a good series, had a good run --I've really enjoyed it.

I wonder how they will end it for our anti-heroes -- hopefully no jail though, I'd rather see them all go out in a blaze of glory then with a whimper in jail.

That was definitely a side of David Aceveda that we haven't seen in a very long time. Then again, Pezuela pushed all of the right buttons on Aceveda, as did Vic to provoke that reaction.

Man, I couldn't help but feel a certain degree of empathy for Shane and his family. If Shane hadn't dropped that grenade in Lem's lap...

It does look like the noose is closing in an Vic. Perhaps he should have done what Ronnie wanted to do and run.

I don't see why ronnie and vic do not simply run at this moment. Especially if they are already looking at five years for whatever shane sent in.

I see one out of this for vic. and i think he's angling it. the feds. If he can bring down a major ... major drug cartel guy... and become a federal witness, federal protection... he can ride off into the sunset. I kept wondering during this episode why he is not putting his every effort into finding shane and that's all i can come up with.

I actually don't feel bad for shane and mora, maybe the kids. She is the reason shane is in the mess he's in and stays in it. she was that one bad influence shane needed to encourage his poor decision making skills.
