    Well that was... interesting. No guest narrator, the deaths of two majors (and two characters who were just introduced), a bizarre new leader for the gays, pot brownies, O'Reilly's father coming to Oz, Keller and Schillinger plotting on the level of pro wrestlers ("He now thinks that I'm back to liking him, even though I've triple-crossed him into thinking that you think I'm still on your side, but I'm really not"), an affaire for Glynn with McManus' ex-wife out of the blue, sounds like things are winding down. Seems like so many plots are still dangling loose, but considering the speed with which Oz deals with plots, 100 minutes is plenty of time to get everything done.
    From what I saw in the preview: Jaz Hoyt reveals what happened to Cloutier, Beecher strikes a deal with the FBI to give Keller up for the murder of Winthrop (though that would technically be inadmissible under lawyer-client priviledge), Quearns returns (probably as the new warden, God save us), and who knows what else.

    In short, 4 deaths, bringing the season's body count to 15, with an average of 2.5/ episode.

    Mark,

    If you don't mind, could you spoilerize the 4 who died? We've been without power here since 0530 Sunday morning and I don't know when, if ever, it'll come back on! I may end up missing this one altogether[​IMG]!

    Anybody want to make a wager on Beecher and Schillinger killing each other in some type of fight, kind of tying in with McBeth somehow?

    Assuming that anyone who missed sunday caught the replay last night, so no spoiler tags.

    WOOHOO! Omar White is DEAD!

    This should have happened a long time ago, since this character has been annoying the hell out of me for a whole season now.

    Didn't like the ending though-seemed like a bit of a throw away, and a little obvious. Loved the Macbeth stuff though (Beecher as Macduff-genius!). I have a feeling that the play will figure pretty prominently into the last episode. Should be a good one.

    I have been a fan of this show since the beginning but seriously the body count this season is way out of control.

    I can accept the prisoners getting it because that happens all the time, and I can even look past the strange disappearance of the Rev but the Warden getting it in his office? I wonder in the last fifty years has any prison Warden ever been murdered in his office?

    As for the final, I hope Beecher gets out, Keller and Schillinger get theirs and the O'Reilys are left standing. (Who knows perhaps they can do a follow-up movie for HBO if some of the main characters are left alive in the end.
