Bumping this thread as I've just finished watching it! Fantastic at times, slow at others but overall it builds nicely from pilot to finale.
I will say the ending felt it left the side characters with a few loose ends.
dutch's serial killer child had no resolution, Claudette's illness was left a bit vague. Danni had no real ending neither did Julian. And did Acevada win mayoral race?
But as for the strike team
I hated Vic from the pilot, he was a selfish murderer and though he had occasional heroic moments, his final actions were once again selfish, hanging his best friend and "family" Ronnie out to dry while he saved his own ass! I actually laughed at the miserable life he was left with at the end, he didn't deserve a happy ending. It's Ronnie I felt sorry for, Vic's big speech about family and being in it together convinced him to stay and ultimately cost him everything!
“Shield” Actor Michael Jace Found Guilty Of Murdering His Wife
A jury in Los Angeles on Tuesday found Michael Jace guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of this wife in 2014.
Actor Michael Jace, who played a police officer on the hit show The Shield, was found guilty Tuesday of second-degree murder for the shooting death of his wife. A jury of six women and six men deliberated about two hours before finding Jace, 53, guilty.
During the weeklong trial, Jace’s defense attorney acknowledged Jace shot his wife, but argued it was not premeditated and should instead be considered involuntarily manslaughter because it was committed in the heat or passion.
However, the prosecution painted a very different picture at trial.
After April Jace — a 40-year-old financial aid counselor at Biola University — had made it clear she planned to file for divorce, the actor waited with a loaded handgun and opened fire when she returned home.
Jace shot in the back and then two more times in the legs in front of their sons, who were 8 and 5 at the time. After the shooting, Michael Jace called 911 to report the incident, but April was dead by the time police arrived.
At the time, the actor had been unemployed and struggling with his finances.
The actor’s two young sons were also home when the shooting occurred and are now living with relatives, according to police. His 10-year-old son testified at trial.
Michael Jace, who has been in custody since his arrest, faces 40 years to life in prison when he is sentenced on June 10.
