“Origins: The Real Lucas Hood”
In a bizarre twist of fate, a recently paroled master thief (Antony Starr) assumes the identity of Lucas Hood, sheriff-in-waiting of Banshee, Pa., the same town where his former partner and lover (Ivana Milicevic), who changed her name to Carrie, relocated and remarried years ago. Keeping his history a secret as he awaits forged papers from Job (Hoon Lee), an unlikely New York City ally, Lucas befriends boxer-turned-bartender Sugar Bates (Frankie Faison), and settles into his new life as Banshee’s sheriff,overseeing deputies Emmett Yawners (Demetrius Grosse), Siobahn Kelly (Trieste Kelly Dunn) and Brock Lotus (Matt Servitto).
Itching for the thrill of thievery and yearning for Carrie, who’s now the wife of attorney Gordon Hopewell (Rus Blackwell) and mother of two, Lucas inadvertently gets tangled up in the rampant corruption of shunned Amish gangster Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) while keeping a vigilant eye out for Mr. Rabbit (Ben Cross), the New York mob boss who wants revenge against Lucas and Carrie for the jewel heist that landed Lucas in prison. A party thrown by Proctor for the new sheriff is spoiled by a crasher, a member of the redneck Moody clan, who despise the Amish in general and Kai in particular.

Hanson (Toby Leonard Moore), a desperate underling of Proctor, holds a rave in an Amish barn, selling homemade E pills stolen from his boss to Banshee youth, including Deva (Ryann Shane), Carrie’s rebellious daughter. Catching wind of the plan, Lucas and his team orchestrate a raid, but the effects of a tainted batch of pills send many revelers into convulsions, with one notable fatality. Though Deva is ferried home safely by Lucas, Hanson isn’t as fortunate when he returns to Kai’s mansion following the debacle.

A mixed martial arts title bout is being planned at the Kinaho Moon Casino, run by tribe leader Benjamin Longshadow (Russell Means) and his son Alex (Anthony Ruivivar).

“Half Deaf Is Better Than All Dead”

Sugar (Frankie Faison) looks for a cut; Kendall (Daniel Ross Owens) gets roughed up; Lucas and Carrie love the ones they’re with.

Rebecca Bowman (Lili Simmons), torn between passion and her Amish roots, finds a kindred spirit in the sheriff.
Wicks (Michael Kostroff), an ex-con from Lucas’ past, passes through Banshee, triggering memories about the Albino (Joseph Gatt), a brutal insider enlisted by Rabbit (Ben Cross) to make Lucas’ prison life a living hell. Proctor turns to extortion when a reverend refuses to sell his home to make room for a casino hotel.

“We Shall Live Forever”
Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) urges Lucas (Antony Starr) to let go of the past, even as an increasingly suspicious Gordon (Rus Blackwell) is hell-bent on uncovering hers. Cast out of her Amish home, Rebecca (Lili Simmons) turns to her uncle, Kai (Ulrich Thomsen), for a new start in Banshee. A surprise visit from Rabbit’s lieutenant Olek (Christos Vasilopoulos), aka Widow’s Peak, brings back a flood of memories for Carrie. As his family keeps vigil for the ailing Benjamin Longshadow, Alex (Anthony Ruivivar) gets a surprise visit from his sister, Nola (Odette Annable).

As Rabbit (Ben Cross) closes in on Lucas and Carrie, she flees the hospital in a desperate attempt to collect her family and get them out of town.

Alex recruits one of Kai’s thugs, who has gambling issues, to deal with a work-stoppage problem at the casino.
“A Mixture of Madness”
Recalling a series of prison therapy sessions that fueled his hatred of Rabbit, and pressured by Xavier’s (Derek Cecil) insistence that the FBI handle a kidnapping case, Lucas makes a decision that will change the fates of Carrie, her family, Sugar (Frankie Faison), Job (Hoon Lee) and the entire Banshee police force. A special delivery at Alex’s doorstep leads Nola to reconsider her future; Kai teaches Rebecca the power of telecommunications.
