An all-out war can’t be too far off now between the Amish and Kinaho tribe can it?
If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of Banshee then stop reading so we don’t spoil anything for you. If you have seen it and want to relive the action keep reading.
Lucas (Antony Starr) has a tough time ahead it seems as tonight’s episode saw him not only once again caught in the midst of the fight between the Amish and the Kinaho tribe but also dealing with the son (Harrison Thomas) of the real Lucas Hood who arrived in Banshee to confront the imposter.
The episode started off on a more hopeful note with Lucas visiting Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) in prison and finding out that she managed to avoid an extension to her sentence following the bloody fight she got into in last week’s episode. Lucas told her to keep her head down for the remainder of her sentence before leaving prison to return to his duties as sheriff.
On his return he discovered that Lana Cleary (Amber Midthunder), a young girl from the Kinaho tribe had been murdered and the chief suspect is Solomon Bowman (Gunnar Carrigan), the brother of Rebecca, who had been secretly seeing her. With Solomon missing, Lucas and the Banshee Sheriff’s Department spent much of the episode trying to figure out who killed Lana and why. Evidence came to light that Tommy Littlestone (Ricky Russert), Lana’s ex-boyfriend, could have a hand in things as his brother Chayton (Geno Segers) was the leader of the Redbones; a gang interested in preserving the purity of their tribe. In his usual bull-in-a-china-shop way Lucas took his team to visit the tribe ignoring the fact that they had no jurisdiction to do anything.
Once there a fight broke out between the Sheriff’s team and the gang which resulted in Lucas arresting and detaining Chayton and Tommy. Back at the Sheriff’s office, the new assistant district attorney turned up and released Tommy. She agreed to keep Chayton locked up but told Lucas she was transferring him as he had outstanding warrants against him.
After clearing up that mess Lucas then had to deal with Jason Hood. Jason quickly revealed that he knew Lucas wasn’t really who he says he is and told him that he is the real Lucas Hood’s son. Lucas made a deal with Jason to help him start a new life in exchange for his silence. The two then went to Sugar’s (Frankie Faison) for a further chat and after Lucas left, Sugar pinned Jason to the table with a knife and threatened to kill him if he exposed Lucas.
Back to the on-going Kinaho versus Amish storyline, the Redbones arrived on the Amish land in the hopes of intimidating them. What they didn’t bank on was Kai (Ulrich Thomsen) having returned to find out what had happened to his nephew Solomon. As he fought the Redbones, and won, Rebecca (Lili Simmons) who had accompanied him begged her sister for help finding Solomon. She agreed to meet her sister on a bridge in the woods but upon arriving there she was attacked by a hooded assailant. Narrowly escaping she ran into Lucas who went into the words to get the attacker. All he would up with was a nasty head wound as the mysterious figure ran way.
Returning to his team, Deputy Siobhan Kelly (Trieste Kelly Dunn) agreed to take him home so he could get some rest and recover from his injuries. She didn’t actually take him to his home then, instead taking him to her own. After a few stiff drinks Lucas decided it was time to go but Siobhan had other ideas and initiated sex.
The episode came to a close as Lucas and Siobhan had sex, Nola (Odette Annabele) stood over the body of Lana and Carrie tried and failed to call her estranged husband Gordon (Rus Blackwell) from prison but he was too busy with strippers!
