Neither did I! It seems everyone lies to Corky, even his good friends.
Yeah, wow. That was unexpected.
I like the historical reference in this episode (Civil War, Boss Tweed). There was also a Homicide: Life on the Street reference (a fake name for voter fraud was Tim Bayliss).
Heh. I heard that name "Tim Bayliss," and it sounded familiar but I couldn't figure out why. Thanks
lol, no problem.
The weird thing about Corky's wife is that I was expecting certain outlandish things, but this one still caught me by surprise. It was impressive and layered (the fact that his friend was lying works on top of it and I didn't see that at all).
OK, finally caught this one. VERY good ending, with it being his wife who Francis Maguire was visiting. I had a feeling that SHE was the one who killed her daughter, and that was why she fled. Now we see she didn't actually "flee" at all. I like Little Brynes--er, "Phinbar." I hope they keep him around a little while longer.
And things are come to a head with his wife's story.
Spoiler: of what it is
It was sort of where they built to, although I actually didn't think it was McGuire (I thought he bribed him earlier to spare him pain).
Aside from that, some good themes. Nice contrast of God, heaven, hell, and Five Points.
In a way, she did. She killed their daughter and then 'fled' into drugs and madness.
They are really wrapping everything aren't they? I had expected some of the subplots/mysteries to be series-long. Apparently, that's not the not the case, however.
I think the next big story is the Civil War saboteurs. Although, with the introduction of the Booth brothers, that might rap up soon.
The DVD comes out in a couple of weeks so I'm thinking the season is almost over.
Isn't Sunday the season finale?
It might be. The way things were going tonight, I almost anticipated tonight was. Next week would be a logical stopping point. I'm not sure where they are in the war, though. By my count, there was about 4-5 months left last episode.
It's over already? No fair!
I thought the finale was pretty good. They tied up the main threads from the season for a satisfying ending, but left a few things out there for another arc. The only thing that didn't work totally was the out of nowhere revelation about Elizabeth Haverford.
Yeah, that was a bit weird. Also a bit hard to hear McGuire confess to all those murders. What's going to happen to him next season, I wonder?
Considering how utterly corrupt the precinct is (Corky is basically a Civil War era Vic Mackey) I could easily see them covering it up and/or telling him to just "get out of Dodge" instead of arresting him.
Either way, at some point, Corky is going to realize that Maguire supposedly confessed all his sins but didn't confess to killing Molly. It will be interesting to see where he takes that realization.
Yeah, I wonder when that will come up? Annie knows, I'm sure, since she kind of set it up in the first place. I wonder what he's going to do with his wife once she detoxes?
Given Corky's whole 1800s Irish Catholicly thing, he might not do anything with her, but stay married, keep living with her and freeze her out emotionally.
And with her sanity being so obviously fragile, that would probably drive her even further into madness.
