Goofs

At the apartment shooting, Detective Mackey uses a pair of needle nose pliers to pull a bullet that will be used for evidence out of a wall. Although a popular and dramatic technique used on police shows and in movies, evidentiary bullets are never pried or pulled out of an object, as it can damage the striations that are made by the barrel's lands and grooves when the round is fired. These striations are unique to that weapon, and damaging them can make the bullet useless for comparison. A seasoned police officer would never do this. CSI units would cut out the section of the drywall that contains the bullet, and carefully remove the bullet in the lab. See more »

Quotes

Corrine Mackey: Did you really do all those things?
Vic Mackey: I did a lot of things that I shouldn't have done, for reasons that made sense at the time, but they're pretty hard to defend right now. What do you want me to say, that I'm different? I don't want to go to prison. Do you want me to go to prison?
Corrine Mackey: Do either of you even feel any shame?

Shockingly Brilliant!
23 October 2008 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

This episode is brilliant!

What a twist at the end! Could someone ever believed that this would happen?

I couldn't even breath at the interrogation scene at the barn - and how unexpected in ended!

Brilliant acting, script, and everything (like always).

This season (the last one) should be nominated for the best Drama series.

Can't wait for the next episode of the most powerful TV show!

Don't miss one the best episodes of "Shield"!

P.S. "The road to justice is twisted!"
