Loved the season premiere! It’s as seedy and inventive as ever. I don’t know how they keep on coming up with scenarios and plotlines like this, but I’m fully invested at this point. Liev Schreiber is the reason to continue watching this. He keeps everything and everyone spinning in orbit. Welcome back!November 24, 2019 at 8:31 am #1203200110

I think it would have been a ballsy move to kill off Mickey. It would forever change the series just like Abby’s death did. As much of a presence and wildcard Jon Voight has been to the series, I wonder what more can be done with his character. It’s also difficult defending someone with such obnoxious real-life views, but that’s here nor there for this topic, I guess. Ray turning on the governor can’t be good for upcoming episodes. I’m glad that Zach Grenier landed a juicy role like this post-“The Good Wife,” though the two roles aren’t nearly comparable.December 8, 2019 at 8:09 am #1203223304

All caught up now. The episode that Dash Minok directed was particularly memorable. Strong season so far with Liev Schreiber being as great an anchor as ever, and the leaner ensemble pulling its respective weight around his performance very well.December 29, 2019 at 1:27 am #1203253051

Time for the season finale! This season has been a thrilling one. It’s impressive what they’re still able to come up with in a seventh season, and I’m anticipating that Showtime will renew it for an eighth season. Too bad you all missed the boat with it here.January 18, 2020 at 10:00 pm #1203291574

Devastating season finale! This might be the most emotive I’ve seen Liev Schrieber since the episode he directed a couple of years ago (he co-wrote this one). The tension here was palpable, and could also be considered another series reboot if all the characters at these vital crossroads return to LA after this NYC arc. Schrieber has done more than enough to return to the Emmy fold in Lead Actor. Hope that some group recognizes his efforts. I’m expecting a season 8 renewal, but if this serves as a series finale, I think I could live with that. Bravo job regardless!
