DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's web site, September 2008) The burning question fans want to know is, "How will it end for Detective Vic Mackey?" Will he be killed? Will he go to jail? Or, will he walk away? Vic faces threats from all directions, primarily from his damaged protege Detective Shane Vendrell, whom Vic knows killed their former partner Detective Curtis Lemansky. He also is faced with losing his badge, as Captain Claudette Wyms is on the verge of pushing him off the force so she and her precinct can clean up Farmington without the stench of police corruption. Further complicating matters is the fact Vic is unaware that he and his team have been 'greenlit' (marked for death) by Diro Kesakhian for ripping off the Armenian money train (Season 2) and that Shane is the one who gave him up.
