Not to get off base, but a GOOD bad guy is bad until the end. Macky was the cold-hearted SOB he was in episode 1. He lost everything and sacrificed all he “cared about”. His family, his partner. Ronnie was loyal to a fault and believed him and it took him about 10 seconds to act like it gave him a problem.

So too far fetched…and how can I spin this into Self Defense…let me give it a shot.

I’m sure you have known people like Vic Macky. People who appear to be friendly, say and do all the “right things” but your instincts tell you something is off- while your reasoning tells you there’s nothing to be worried about. Sometimes you have to deal with these people and form alliances to get to your end game. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a fox hole, a prison cell or a board room. Greed and deceit are human nature and some people will do what ever it takes to get what they want. They will throw you under the bus in a moments notice.

I have dealt with 1%-ers, convicts and college graduates. There is no honor among thieves. Bad people are just wired that way. Vic reminds us that these people do exist. Now, I never go against my instinct and I tell my reasoning to shut the f#$%k up.


PS. The Hades reference was spot on and George Lucas owes me 7 hours of my life
