'Ray Donovan' Season 7 Episode 2: With Mickey dead, Ray needs another fall guy for murdered cops and the Sullivans are causing trouble again
The episode started off with fishermen discovering a bag containing a head and it turns out the head belonged to a slain New York cop, and wouldn't you know it, the Donovans are prime suspects in the murder
Season 7 of 'Ray Donovan' premiered to a very unexpected twist on Sunday, November 17, and this is going to have very severe impacts on Ray (Live Schreiber) and his therapy sessions.
The episode started off with fishermen discovering a bag containing a head and it turns out the head belonged to a slain New York cop, and wouldn't you know it, the Donovans are prime suspects in the murder.
The fixer that he is, Ray tries to end the murder investigation by pinning it on his father Mickey (Jon Voight) who is already imprisoned, but he seems to have run out of luck because his father is dead as well.
We saw that after a not-so-pleasant meet-up with Ray, Mickey and a bunch of other inmates were being transferred to the maximum-security prison and on the way they met with an accident.
Mickey is dead and that is going to affect Ray in psychological and mental ways that he hadn't anticipated, but thankfully he has a helpful therapist in Dr. Arthur Amiot (Alan Alda). However, he has no one to turn to for the practical ramifications that Mickey's death has.
With him gone, who can take the fall for the cop's death? That remains to be seen. Meanwhile, another headache heading in Ray's direction in the upcoming Season 7 Episode 2 is the return of the Sullivans.
We have learned a lot about them over the years, especially how they have been at war with the Donovans since forever, and based on the sneak peek for the upcoming 'A Good Man is Hard to Find', it is clear that the animosity is still persistent.
Ray, however, is forced to deal with them because of Mayor Ed Feratti (Zach Grenier). It is clear that the brother-sister duo from the Sullivan family is going to be a huge part of 'Ray Donovan' Season 7, and we cannot wait to see how that will pan out.
Season 7 Episode 2 of 'Ray Donovan', titled 'A Good Man is Hard to Find' airs on Sunday, November 24, on Showtime.
