Sneak Peek: Try To Get A Table At That French Place Downtown

"Another solid episode of Ray Donovan finally gets the entire crew to New York City while it focuses on three parallel arcs: how Ray is settling into his LA profession in the Big Apple; how poorly Daryll is handling the over-budget production of Mister Lucky in the same city; and how Mickey and Bunchy are going to get to that set and cause some trouble."


"So, as the beat of 'N.Y. State Of Mind' loops, Ray is renewed. He gets back to being the man he was before Abby died. He works out with Terry to get back in shape, and he finds a new suit. It’s like putting on new skin, though this is, of course, the old skin, just transplanted to New York. Either way, Ray is back, and that gives the episode some necessary propulsive energy."
