Episode Recaps

From Collider:
Quite a few comments have been about Ray Donovan's move (or bait and switch) from a show about a fixer to one that makes viewers totally submerged in the comings and goings of the Donovan family.


From The Wall Street Journal:
There's tension between Ray and Abby as Ray prepares to take a trip to Boston.
