The Shield (Season 2 - 2003)



Season 2 of The Shield picks up about 5 weeks after the conclusion of Season 1 with Vic Mackey trying to find his children with his estranged wife having taken them and disappearing. This is the story that has undercurrent of a couple of much larger story lines. The first is the Armadillo arc and the other is the Money Train arc, which will play a huge role for the remainder of the series. There is a lot to like about this season and the stories themselves are at the forefront, but it's the interplay between the "minor' characters that elevate this one as well. Claudette Wyms getting fed up with the way things are being run in the Barn gets an offer she can't refuse (which doesn't take effect until Season 3). Dutch Wagenbach, having **** a case involving a serial killer from Season 1 is on a path of constant f*ck ups this season as he looks at every one being a 'serial killer' and it blows up in his face all season long. Julian is the victim of gay bashing (literally) and will change his story dramtically from here on out. Danni is fired (wrongfully) because no one can catch Vic in the act and David wins his seat and becomes the new mayor, thus vacating his position as Captain in Farmington.

Along with their arcs, there are two new characters that add a wealth of juicy story lines: Tavon, who joins the Strike Force Team is cool as a cucumber, who's story line will pay off in a big way in the future and Lanie Kellis, who is the Independent Auditor, makes EVERYONE's life a living hell in the Barn. She may have had a small role throughout Season 2, but it's a lasting one. Overall, this season is awesome and it also contains one of the most popular scenes in the history of the show, which plays out at the end of the Season Finale. This was THE scene I have been waiting for since starting my Shield Marathon. Love it. FYI, the scene was also the first time I ever heard of the song 'Overcome' by Live. This is a definite Must-Buy DVD for any home library.

I can't believe I forgot to mention this in my post, but Kristen Bell and Francis Capra both had small roles in separate episodes in Season 2 of The Shield. It blew my mind to see both of them so young and wet behind the years before they would go on to Veronica Mars.
