A long, bloody goodbye to ‘The Shield’

 

"The Shield," which returns Tuesday, has always been a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, chained to a stack of dynamite, doused in kerosene, bordering the edge of a roaring campfire.

The ticking time bomb will finally explode in this seventh and final season with Vic Mackey, a detective whose moral code is as twisted and poisoned as an alcoholic's intestines, finally meeting his date with destiny.

It won't be a pretty ending. In fact, everything about "The Shield," including its grainy tone, twitchy camerawork (even the opening credits vibrate) and shady characters, has spit in the face of convention.
