When the second season of Ray Donovan ended it was clearly a time of desperation for the Donovan clan. Mickey’s (Jon Voight) ill-conceived heist went south, landing Terry (Eddie Marsan) in jail, leaving poor Bunchy (Dash Mihok) alone to carrying on the management of the gym (along with other haunting issues).
As for Ray (Liev Schreiber), he is prepared for prison — if that is his fate — his relationship with this wife, Abby (Paula Malcomson) is unresolved and his close associate, Avi (Steven Bauer), has gone rogue. There were some good things too … Ray took care of business by killing Cookie Brown (Omar J. Dorsey) right in front of his bodyguards (nice touch leaving a million dollars for them to “divide up”).
When you are a “fixer” to the wealthy and famous your life can get complicated. Ray knows this … it’s part of the job This is especially true if your father is a double-dealing lowlife and your family closet is full of skeletons.
Thus begins Ray Donovan: Season Three, 12 all-new episodes of murder, betrayal and various schemes involving our boy Ray and his associates. Paramount Home Media will have both DVD (a four-disc set) and Blu-ray (three discs) edition available for fans to enjoy at their leisure beginning on Dec. 29.
Bonus goodies include episodes one and two of The Affair and the pilot episode of Showtime’s new series, Billions (debuts Jan. 17 and stars Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Malin Akerman, Maggie Siff, Toby Leonard Moore and David Costabile).
