[Warning: Contains spoilers for Shooter episode 107, "Danger Close." Read the full recap here]
This week Bob Lee Swagger discovered a new big bad. Lon Scott is the shooter who used the red bullet to kill the Ukrainian President, while the CIA framed Swagger for it. They haven’t even met yet, but when they do it’s sure to be explosive. Until then, both Bob Lee and Julie Swagger sprung into action to keep their family safe until Lon Scott can be exposed. Here are their five most badass moments from this week’s Shooter, ranked!
5. The Gun Show
Since there are only four Black King rifles that can shoot the red bullet, Bob Lee Swagger could track one down to a gun show. It was pretty smooth how he fished out Lon Scott by baiting a braggadocios salesman about the Black King. But when another booth proprietor recognized Swagger, he had to make an escape. A simple shove made the tough guy shoot his own foot and send the whole convention into a scramble!
4. The Traffic Cop
Getting pulled over for a broken tail light cover would be disaster, because Swagger would land in custody before he can find Lon Scott. The cop is doing his job, so we don't want him hurt either. Luckily, Swagger, ever the hero, found a way to disable the traffic cop with no permanent damage. It was both smart and kind of Swagger to push him aside and just back over his bike, although the cop probably doesn't feel too grateful.
3. Johnson Vs. Swagger
Isaac Johnson (Omar Epps) still has a few tricks up his sleeve, and he was able to find Swagger in person. This is a monumental broiler because there’s so much history under the surface. Swagger calls Johnson out on killing Donny's mom, and he won’t let it go just because Johnson’s in trouble now. "Just because you realized you're expendable, doesn't make us partners." You said it, Bob Lee.
2. Leaving the Bullet For Lon
Swagger reached Scott by phone, but tough talk can only be so threatening. That’s why Swagger’s earlier move was much more intimidating. Posing as a delivery messenger, he left a package for Scott. When Scott opened the package, it contained one red bullet. Now Lon Scott knows it’s on!
1. Julie Pulls a Knife at Jim's Throat
Julie Swagger gets the best moment of the episode. She’s been staying with her sister Anna but her husband Jim got a little nosy and saw one of her private e-mails to Bob Lee. Jim even went to the FBI, so Jules taught him not to mss with the Swaggers, at knife point. She sends Jim away from his own home and he knows she means it! See the clip here:
