Banshee - Episode 2.02 - The Thunder Man - Preview and Dialogue Teasers

I enjoyed last weeks heavy exposition return but I know some fans missed the sex, violence and downright creepiness that this show is known for, and of course there wasn't a great deal of screen time for the villain we love to hate, Kai Proctor. But, rest assured it’s business as usual this week, in fact the brutality seems to build in stages throughout the episode until it hits a climatic peek towards the end where director Greg Yaitanes treats us to two beautifully intercut scenes of sheer savagery.

We saw Rebecca make her choice between the farm and her uncle last week, and before the pre-credits roll this week we see her struggle with another choice that involves her uncle. The show has done well in slowly introducing this incest story so far, and this scene is certainly the most inappropriate one so far, it’s extremely uncomfortable to watch even though she is technically by herself the whole time. I think that it also heavily implied that she will now probably go down this path whether she wants to or not by this point and that, unfortunately, it will break one of them.

Elsewhere, Alex is feeling the tribal council breathing down his neck, in particular George Hunter who would happily step into his shoes and take on his role, so it’s no wonder that he is hasty in jumping to conclusions and makes a huge mistake this week. Led by his sister, Nola, he starts playing a very dangerous game of one-upmanship with the wrong man. Whose nerve will hold out the longest, and which of them will end up in a blood bath…

The Thunder Man airs at 10pm on January 17th on Cinemax, below are some teasers to see you through until then. Don’t forget to come back to vote in the poll on the site after the it airs to let us know what you thought of the episode.

“You’re security personal weren't very effective, you may want to talk to them when they wake up”

“We can’t sit back while our tribe’s fiscal security is threatened”

“A few weeks ago you told me you owed me one, I'm sure you recall that conversation”

“Right, not a job you generally associate with getting shot and getting buried in the woods”

“A word to the wise is unnecessary, it’s the damn fool who needs the advice”

“Careful now, I'm trying to be gracious here, to make amends”

“So, you’re one of Proctor’s lackeys, is that it?”

“I'm done sending messages, it’s time to take a more direct approach”

“I want you to know that I left three years ago angry and drunk and I'm neither of those things any more, I've been sober now for two years”

“You don’t put that shit on me, she’s in this mess because of you, not me”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
