Banshee - We All Pay Eventually - Advance Preview + Dialogue Teasers



The finale is here all too soon, but at least it’s one that I’m sure will be remembered by the fans. Last year we had two separate stories about Lucas and Carrie, set fifteen years apart, being teased out simultaneously in New York. This time round we have two different groups from Banshee looking to settle things by heading into their rival’s camp with guns blazing. Like last season’s finale, we also have the beginnings of what could shape some of next year’s plotlines too.

The flashbacks in Even God Doesn't Know What to Make of You where Hood meet Job for the first time were the furthest back the show has ever been, but this week we delve even deeper into his past. We know that he has former ties to the military from the hints that have been dropped here and there, now we get to see some of the secrets that surround that part of his life.

If you haven’t seen any of the Origins videos then I recommend that you at least watch this one called Birthday, which is set on Hood’s last day in prison, before the finale. It complements the narrative in the flashback, and other scenes you will see in the episode, as well as furthering one of the themes they have been pushing for Hood’s character this season.

Seeing the quiet and courteous Bunker lose it with Jasper and Bryce was an eye opener. It appears that his normal calm disposition could be holding back a lot of pent up rage and resentment at something, or someone. There’s an important piece of information to listen out for during his visit with his brother, Calvin, this week too – was the story he told Alison during the siege at the Cadi the complete truth?

Tom Pelphrey hasn’t had a great deal to do so far, not that he’s without his fans already, but this is the episode where he really gets to test his acting chops. We saw Brock starting to take the newest Deputy under his wing a little last week, which is something that continues after the two of them have a run in with a group from the Brotherhood. Neither of them is involved in the big shootout action sequences in the finale, but nonetheless they share one of the most powerful scenes in the episode.

This leaves us with the two showdowns - Hood and Gordon’s rescue at Camp Genoa and Proctor’s crew teaming up with Hector (Wilson Jermaine Heredia) against the Black Beards in Philly. The attacks happen simultaneously, which I think works well as the edits between the two locations increases the tension. Not that there isn’t the odd moment where black humour is used to lighten the mood too, this is Banshee after all. Sugar probably regrets being the one that comes up with the ingenious means of escape, for example, and Hector loves his new toy just a tad too much!

After the dust settles, the bullets stop flying and the last explosion goes off, who is left standing? Well, according to our Death Poll at the moment it looks like Gordon, Stowe and Job are the ones who won’t be making it to Season 4, but Emily and Carrie aren’t too far behind them. The only certain demise I can tell you about is the loss of Hood’s dear ole truck, may she rest in pieces. For the rest, you will have to tune in on Friday night.


We All Pay Eventually airs Friday March 13 at 10:00 ET/PT on Cinemax. Below is a finale sized bumper edition of dialogue teasers to see you through until then.
