Movie Summary
Season two of The Shield begins with Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis), the hard-nosed, sometimes homicidal, and seldom ethical leader of the Farmington District Strike Force, searching desperately for his wife, Corinne (Cathleen Cahlin Ryan), and his three kids, who may be in the hands of mob assassins; meanwhile, the other members of the Strike Force have surreptitiously gone into the illegal drug business. Though Vics family is rescued, he soon faces another crisis: What to do about his co-worker, Detective Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder), who is on the verge of exposing Vics connections with the underworld? Fortunately, he is spared the necessity of buying off or whacking one of his own and is able to move on to other matters. In the course of the season, the viewer is treated to an extended flashback sequence, showing how the various members of the Strike Force originally got together (this was actually a cannibalization of the series hitherto unseen pilot episode). Also, the local press gets wind of the corruption within the force causing everyone to wonder if the jig is up and if theyre all out of jobs -- or worse. By seasons end, the forces gay member, Officer Julian Lowe (Michael Jace), is no longer part of the big picture; Officer Danielle Danny Sofer is given some very disturbing news; and it looks as though Vic Mackey is about to pay for his sins -- big time! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
