Supporting Cast of Rattus Rattus: Ray Donovan

Here are some of the actors who appeared in “Rattus Rattus” (9-18-2016), the Season 4 finale of Ray Donovan. The episode recap is here.

Nicholas Guilak as Aleks Malkin in Ray Donovan

That big smile disappeared quickly when Lena put a gun up to Aleks’ head

Nicholas Guilak played Aleks Malkin, the replacement brought in for the deceased Ivan Belikov. Malkin was on screen a lot less than Belikov, although he met the same fate as his predecessor: they were both killed by Ray Donovan. Ray strangled than shot Belikov. He took Malkin out with a baseball bat.

Joseph D. Reitman in Ray Donovan

Those duplicitous Russians were smuggling dope in the art

Joseph D. Reitman played the guy who was fencing art. As soon as he opened the back of the “Girl with Guitar” painting, he upped his $10K offer to $50K and Mickey knew something was up.

Aaron Behr as the coroner in Ray Donovan

Ray and Lena got to see Sonia’s corpse despite hush hush orders

Aaron Behr played the coroner, at least that is what his role was billed as. He told Ray and Lena that Sonia Kovitzky’s body came in “3 days ago” and no one was allowed to touch it or identify it on “orders from above.” That must mean that Frank Barnes knew damn well that Sonia was Kaputzky when he talked to Ray. Ray and Lena were so sad and somber, you’d never know Ray was very recently regretting not killing Sonia himself when he had the chance.

More notes:

  • Ray wasn’t the only one who had a weird dream. Bunchy dreamed that he and Ray were racing paper boats down the Charles River, when a Jaws-like shark popped out of nowhere and ate Ray’s boat.
  • Our body count was 6 for the finale: Sonia, Dmitri and Pieter, Aleks Malkin and 2 more Russians. Meir, we think, was one.
  • Why did Avi make Daryll walk away before he shot Sokolov and Pieter. As Daryll put it, it wasn’t his first rodeo.
  • Damon is still seeing Shairee. She was his date at the post-fight celebration. But wasn’t it weird that Hector didn’t stay for the celebration?
  • We believe we will be seeing Hector in Season 5. The last thing Ray said to him was “I’ll call you when I need you.” And don’t forget that Hector comes with his own cast of characters: Punch, his wife, his daughter and that misguided Servant of the Paraclete, Father Romero. Will he ever stop trying to save Hector and Ray’s souls?

Wasn’t it cute seeing Lena dancing with Mickey to Andy Kim’s 1974 No. 1 hit “Rock Me Gently”? Here is Andy singing the song, which he also wrote.
