So much of Ray Donovan this season has hinted at possible catharsis for Ray, and what the consequences are the longer he denies his past. “Volcheck” was about that, but even more generally about fear. Ray fears confronting his past, but is also a fearsome figure for many (like Ronald, and to a certain degree Mickey). Abby fears retaliation on Bridget by Cooke Brown, while Terry fears he’ll lose Frances and his dreams of escape unless he throws his lot in with Mickey. And Avi, who has been critical of Ray all season, seems concerned about his boss, and where Ray is taking them. Hit the jump if you like to swim in the ocean naked.
