BANSHEE: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Banshee” wears its pulp love on its sleeve. Taking place two years after the end of season three, we’re truly in the darkest timeline. Hood is trying to piece the gang back together, but he also wants to stop a serial killer stalking the town. Local villains have taken over the sheriff and mayorship, while the gang hides out in secluded spots. Well, Sugar is still at the bar. Is it just me or has this not been an amazing year for Frankie Faison? Dude deserves an Emmy…now.
Flashbacks and partnerships dot this season, as the show builds to a definite finale. The push to make the serial killer angle into something more annoyed me. Oooh! We’re going to waste more episodes on wrapping this up. While I appreciate what happened with Carrie’s arc, it didn’t seem angry enough to me. This point has resulted in a yelling match with another Banshee fan, as they think I just wanted a rip roaring rampage of Carrie slaughter. Honestly, it wouldn’t be the worst thing. You’re on Cinemax, use it to your advantage.

The Plot Thus Far
Fourth and final season of Cinemax’s gritty action series, as Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) returns to Banshee without his badge, but with a new motivation: to hunt for a vicious serial killer and track down a long-lost ally. Season 4 begins two years after Lucas and Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) orchestrated a multimillion-dollar heist that went bad leaving Carrie’s husband dead and Job (Hoon Lee) in the hands of a criminal gang. After a bender, during which he finds an unlikely savior in Rebecca (Lili Simmons), Lucas emerges from a self-imposed exile and goes back to Banshee to find it a drastically changed town that’s facing multiple threats on many levels.
