The Sean Walker conspiracy is fine, the entire FBI thing doesn't matter, Frank's family remains undetonated, and Mickey's got pretty much everything going great -- and not in a way that really affects Ray's life in any way, now that we're back in charge of Bunchy's money -- so everybody's hands are clean (including the two murders Mickey has committed since he got out of jail, but you know what I mean) and the question we've been asking all season becomes the only question left:
How much of this is Ray?
When Ezra counsels Ray against letting Mickey poison his wonderful life, does Ray take that to mean getting over himself, or going through with the murder? Abby starts putting the plot together, but probably nothing else knowing her. Ray bonds with Daryll, presumably to get on his dad's nerves, and Bunchy goes looking for a priest. See you in two weeks; have a great Labor Day. Three episodes left!
