A link to the wikipedia article on this episode, one of the bests of one of television's best series. I was surprised there wasn't already a discussion thread for this, since it contains what may be Mr. D'Onofrio's best performance.
I can't believe there wasn't a thread for this episode.
Strangely enough, I mentioned my determination to see every HLOTS episode in another thread this morning. Even though I own this, I never watch it. It's too depressing. That's what was so fantastic about HLOTS - no happy, storybook endings.
A show with flawed, but struggling human beings you want to be with. Stories that surprise, but aren't written to shock for the sake of shock. HLOTS never backed away from showing the results of violence, but it also never wallowed in it. Subtle, graceful.

The Subway took my breath away. The day I watched it, I couldn't do anything else. I was stuck in a sort of surreal twilight where I couldn't seem to get my breath and my heart felt squeezed in a vise. Powerful performance by all involved, but most especially Vincent.
"I'm okay. . ." Those words, and the look in his eyes, haunted me for days.
I've never seen other eps from this show as it was never aired over here, but I love "Subway". I concur, it's almost to depressing to watch, but it's a wonderful episode never the less. I'm in awe at the range of emotions VDO covered in this.
I'd love to see KE's ep. Her bits are on YouTube, but I'd love to see the whole episode one day.
