There was little warmth in the episode of Ray Donovan titled "Housewarming." It was the first time we were shown the darker side of Ray's behavior, seeing just how far he is willing to go to get what he wants. It was a little frightening.
At the heart of everything, of course, were the underpinnings of Mickey and what his return into Ray's life has done to his career and his family. The way out, as Ray sees it, is far darker and more complex than just taking Mickey out.
