AVClub: Did the man who became Lucas Hood deserve to walk out of Banshee alive? That’s the question I’ve been chewing on in the wake of “Requiem,” an episode that ended with a surprisingly optimistic bent for this oft bleak and brutal show. For an episode named after a funeral dirge and a series that’s named after an Irish spirit whose scream is a portent of death, it’s almost remarkable that Hood would be able to make his way to the end. Sugar even says as much to him as they share their final bourbon, and Hood can’t find a single point of disagreement with that. And yet he does, and our final glimpse of the man is not his broken body but riding out of town, on the very same bike he rode in on.
