RAY DONOVAN: Vinessa Shaw on What Comes Next for Kate

August 11, 2014 by  


[This post contains spoilers for the August 10th episode of RAY DONOVAN.]

RAY DONOVAN’s Kate finally got the answers she had been chasing after all season. Unfortunately for her, the answers she was handed were a lie: Ray, Cochran, and Mickey told her that the Donovans had been working with the FBI on a sting operation to catch Sully, and that the FBI really was responsible for his death.

Kate appeared content with what she heard, but was she truly buying it? Or was she, perhaps, playing their game and buying herself some time?

“This is the big question I had, too,” Vinessa Shaw (Kate) admitted. “At this moment, she believes what’s being said to her. The fact that head of the FBI is in the same room…and the Donovans — it’s just too many people in the same room not to believe it. For now. Of course, Kate is no flower, she has her radar up. But she has to take what they’re saying at face value.”

“And I think the button of that scene is about Catherine,” she continued. “The fact that Mickey says, ‘Catherine is in witness protection,’ it just kind of puts everything all into perspective for her. It just wrapped everything up for her in that matter — that was the big looming question: what is going on with Catherine, and where is she? The fact that Mickey gave an answer that she was actually guessing the whole time is something that is satisfying to her. But as we know, Kate will consistently try to get the truth, if she finds out that’s not the truth. And she [would] go after them again.”

And while Kate headed out of town to finish her book at the end of the episode, she won’t be gone for long…and she won’t be entirely happy when she returns.

“I pop back again in a few episodes, because there’s some unanswered questions that make me come back,” Shaw laughed. “I think she has a bone to pick with every single person — Mickey, [and] head of [Los Angeles’] FBI, Cochran. She has a bone to pick with most people she’s spoken with one-on-one, and that includes, obviously, Ray. She doesn’t have any personal attachments to everybody. The only person she has a personal attachment to is Ray, and as we know already, she has declared her distance after they [slept together]. She clearly said, ‘Just because we fucked, it doesn’t mean I won’t do my job.’ She [declared] right there, don’t get lovey-dovey with me — I’m not who you think I am, and who I could be potentially for you. And I think that’s the only way she can get what she wants — by not being tied in personally in any way.”

RAY DONOVAN airs Sundays at 9 PM on Showtime.
