The second season of Boss looks to be in as good form as the first. And last night's episode ended in something we didn't see in the first: an attempt on Kane's life, after a rally, results in his beautiful wife Meredith getting shot. She of course wasn't killed - thank you, coming attractions, for spoiling any uncertainty we may have had about that - though she's too important and charismatic a character to remove from the series.
But who did the shooting? Or, more important, who put the shooter up to it? I'm thinking Kane hired a sharp shooter to do the job. Indeed, he had been hallucinating about Ezra right before the shooting. Meredith had betrayed him too in the first season - not as badly as Ezra, and she had been suitably punished, but maybe not enough for Kane, who is a stickler for the right level of payback. Or, maybe Kane needed the sympathy lift, which is what he got by busting his loyal daughter.
Should be provocative, riveting viewing, like first season, and I'm looking forward to it.
