Me and my wife liked it, but I'm confused about one part. When they where kids, was it the main character (Barry I think), or his brother that ended up shooting the man? I think it was Barry...who got out, got the gun, and shot him, but I'm not sure...it was very confusing trying to figure out which one it was.

I think...Barry...was the younger son.....and the older son was then chosen to lead, be the successor, but the father, on his death bed, said the younger son should have been the successor instead. So if that is the case, then is Barry really hiding a dark side....even darker then his brother?

Good show!

I didn't know until the second time I watched it, its definitely the main guy and not his brother that does the shooting (Their father calls out the first kid by name, Hassan I think).

I wasn't sure what to expect based on the trailers, but I was impressed by the pilot and am waiting for more episodes.

Thanks LostCrusader. I thought it was him, but it was confusing and I was not sure.

I think the only thing that won't surprise me about this show is if


Other than that, I'm now more curious about how the son's little arc will play out throughout the show...
