It’s all about families and failing communication this week. Among the many stories on this theme are Carrie being scared for her children because she’s convinced her father is still out there planning to take them away from her for good, Proctor and Rebecca attempting to reconnect with their Amish roots after a shocking crime takes place near the farm, Sugar demonstrates just how close a friend he considers Lucas to be, and a violent gang that the Littlestone brothers belong to making life difficult for the sheriff’s department.
There’s also some pretty obvious symbolic imagery towards the start of the episode during two intercut scenes in which we hear Genesis being read and see the proffering of an apple between two adolescents meeting in secret; a Kinaho girl and Amish boy. It isn’t long before things take a turn for the worse and the young Indian is found horrifically murdered, the lad is missing and the town is turning in on itself with everyone blaming the other side.
As you may have seen in the promo we finally get to meet Chayton Littlestone (Geno Segers; Pair of Kings) this week, who is cast in the recurring role of leader of a gang on the reservation in Banshee. He’s perfectly cast as a dedicated to his cause, crazy megalomaniac who hates white Americans for taking away his heritage and dictating how he and his people should live. He looks far taller than his already impressive 6 foot 4 inches and makes for a formidable foe in a one on one fight, let alone the four on one brawl that breaks out here. Hood also quickly learns that taking a weapon into battle with him will only mean that the weapon will be taken off you with ease and turned against you!
