Ray Donovan - anyone still watching? **spoilers***

After watching the last episode (S1E11), I'm confused about the priest. Was Bunchy right about it being him or was it just a coincidence?

The wife can go anytime now.

Hi:
Yes, I'm still watching and still liking it a lot!

Yes, not only was Bunchy right about it being the priest h e thought it was, the priest also abused Ray, too. At least that was my take on the whole thing.

That was my take as well, that's why Ray killed him.

I enjoy this show a lot. Jon Voigt does a great job playing such a creep.

Mine too. At first I just figured Bunchy was imagining it, but then it became clear that it was him, especially after Ray had him hold up his two hands and asked the other brother which he broke.

It was definitely the priest that molested Bunchy.

Tried to molest Terry, got his hand broken.

Shocker was that he also molested Ray.

This show is really quite good!

I also have to say that Jon Voigt is killing it.

Yeah. She's a "TELL ME! What's going on!!!" shrew like Skyler in Breaking Bad and Maddy in Burn Notice. You'd think she would know by now what Ray does and that he won't talk about it.

I was looking for Abby to say "Kill him," about the priest but it pretty much went that way when she quietly left with along the lines of "Will you be home in time for supper?"

C'Mon guyz, the priest admitted it was him. He was all "poor me" because he had to be in treatment for for two years and was chemically castrated - which doesn't mean he would stop didling boys.

This episode had enough moving parts to rival the last episode of Breaking Bad. Dead Mickey's squeeze. Dead Shawn actor. Dead FBI agent. Kill the priest.

Yeah. I was gonna say that in spite of the actor being nuts the dude is a first rate actor as always. The best was the look on his face when Ray had him on the ground with the gun to his head.

We're still only getting hints of why Ray hates Mickey. I guess it's due to him consistently a sh* father and disappointing his kids, like with the "F'n Bucky Dent" night.

I totally LOVED Ray's wife in this episode.

After all her kvetching and questioning since the first episode, she took one look at the situation with the priest and took the whole thing in stride.

I am hoping her reaction will allow Ray to open up a bit more to her in the future (as he did with the molestation revelation). She really is on his side...

Ray hates Mickey currently because Mickey was selling him out to the FBI. I think he hated him the most in the past for Mickey screwing Claudette while Ray's mother was dying of cancer.

I'm still watching it, but I doubt I'll be back to watch a second season.

In the season finale we got the real, real, real reason that Ray decided that Daddy Mickey was dead at him when Ray was 10.

I am enjoying this show a lot and agree with above. I didn't see the 9/22 episode yet.

The only uncertainty with the priest was early on when Bunchy was the only one claiming it was him since obviously his judgement can't be trusted.

I will be back for season 2.

Binge-watched this over the weekend and enjoyed it. Agreed that John Voigt is excellent and, of course, DID receive the Emmy nod.

Favorite characters? It's between Avi and Terry (LeStadt in the Sherlock Holmes movies) for me. I also like Abby (Maureen Ashby in the Ireland season of Sons Of Anarchy).

Bunchy, too. And Lena. Overall, just a lot of good acting on this show.

I'm starting to recognize (the actor who plays) Terry everywhere now. The Worlds End. A young Mugger #1 in The Man Who Knew Too Little.

I started watching season 2 and quickly realized from the "previously on" that I somehow missed the season Finale for season 1!

I thought the last episode was the Priest one and that they left everything as a cliffhanger.

I saw the finale but decided I need to rewatch because I forgot how all of the characters and twists went.

Having just seen a show on him, I finally got that Sully is supposed to be Whitey Bulger.

Who was the girl that Mickey sees as the Dolphin? His last girlfriend?

They're retreading plot points a bit. There is no reason that "Moe" the FBI boss would have Ray bring Mickey in just to have him in town - other than to have Mickey around for plot purposes.

Ann-Margret! Loo king good!

Paula Malcomson is plain hot in that lace teddy.
