Shield, The: The Complete Series

The Shield: Season 1

Detective Vic Mackey is the leader of an elite Strike Team unit, a group of cops effective at eliminating crime but also operating under Vic's own set of rules. But his rules sometimes cross the fine line between legal and illegal. Now the precinct has a new captain who doesn't like Vic's tactics and wants to bust him off the - even as the captain finds himself going to Vic for help whenever the going get rough.

The Shield: Season 2

After a rocky start, Detective Vic Mackey and Captain David Aceveda have formed an uneasy alliance that Detective Claudette Wyms is determined to destroy. Vic's personal life is in shambles and a new nemesis on the street the Strike Team to risk everything in the pursuit of one last big score for their "retirement fund".

The Shield: Season 3

After scoring big with the money train, the Strike Team plays it cool to avoid arousing suspicion as Dutch and Claudette investigate the robbery and murder of two Armenian gangsters. Tensions are stretched even further when Vic finds himself at odds with his team as they face a bitter rivalry with the new Decoy Squad. But hostilities are quickly forgotten when Captain Aceveda reveals that the Strike Team is the target of an Armenian mob hit.

The Shield: Season 4

Life at the Barn may never be the same after the Strike Team is dissolved and Vic and Shane are assigned to regular detective duty. Captain Aceveda is also leaving to begin his new job on the City Council. Any hope that Detective Claudette Wyms had of assuming Aceveda's command is dashed when another female, Monica Rawling, is chosen as the new captain. Although Vic often clashed with Aceveda, he quickly realizes that Captain Rawling also has her own agenda - one that not only shakes up the gangs on the streets, but causes friction among many of the detectives, as well.

The Shield: Season 5

As the Strike Team battles racial tensions in the city, friction inside the Barn escalates with the arrival of Lieutenant Jon Kavanaugh (Forest Whitaker), a dogged Internal Affairs cop obsessed with taking down Vic Mackey, squeezing Vic's ex-wife, Corrine, to do it. In the midst of this chaos, Dutch and Claudette's work relationship grows strained, Danny refuses to reveal the father of her baby and Julien struggles with a new, attractive, rookie partner.

The Shield: Season 6

Even as a hardened cop, things have never been tougher for Detective Vic Mackey. In The Shield's riveting sixth season, he must deal with a vicious, gang-related slaughter with no leads, the desperate attempts of an Internal Affairs detective to discredit him, and the looming threat of retirement. To top it all, he's obsessed with finding the killer of a valued Strike Team member and friend. Meanwhile, Shane hooks up with the Armenian mob and becomes a dangerous adversary to Vic, Claudette struggles to keep the Barn from being shut down, and Dutch suffers the wrath of his arrogant new partner.

The Shield: Season 7

Now, after seven edge-of-your-seat seasons, you can finally see how this award-winning FX drama turns out. Shane resorts to kidnapping in his dangerous dance with the Armenian mob, Dutch risks everything by becoming personally involved in a homicide investigation, the Strike Team mobilizes to free a drug lord's daughter - but it all comes down to Detective Vic Mackey confronting his greatest adversary: himself. Pressured to take down Pezuela, Vic negotiates an immunity deal with ICE to vanquish Beltran at last, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the closet. Will Vic pay for his sins in the end? The answer lies in the ultimate betrayals, climactic action and devastating series finale.
