Plot

In the upcoming season, we will see Ray living his best life in New York after he was saved by a Staten Island cop named Mac, and is seen enjoying the best pizza the city has to offer. Especially with Mickey hunting for him and looking for revenge, Bridget has asked her father to stay away from his father.

The chaos he brings to most situations called for this proposal, and we cannot help but agree with her suggestion. It remains to be seen how successful Ray will be in following his daughter's instructions.

The other characters in the show also have major storylines ahead of them, with Terry embarking on an "unconventional healing opportunity" and Daryl getting a new love interest.
