Review of season 3: Episodes 7-9
7 September 2015 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

Episodes 7,8 were 9/10 and episode 9 was 10/10.

The story gets more tight in episodes 7,8 and although nothing groundbreaking didn't happen, they were very good episodes.

Episode 9 was the best so far in season 3 in my opinion. Story moved forward, and it represented everything i love "Ray Donovan" in first place - great acting (as usual), great, plausible and intriguing script and real feeling of this family. Great last 10/15 min. of this episode, everything just felt right, in place and time. Jon Voight is brilliant in here, especially during the money return scene at the end of the episode - he and Liev Schreiber click here wonderfully - you can FEEL that they aren't simply caricatures.

Overall, 3 episodes left in season 3, and i bet they will be great.
