    The case is over, so how is the show going to follow up? After 8 weeks, now they need to catch Blunt in two episodes. It seems mismanaged.
  • l Think Blunt ls Guilty.

    9.5
    English and Mulligan pursue the theory that Blunt directed the murder of Kevin Neyers, his biological father. Questioned by English, D-Hop and his friend recant their identification of Walton, saying that an older man threatened them with a gun into silence. Noting that the killer took care to leave no clues, English questions Salter, who denies his guilt and brings Blunt's political influence to bear so that Koto orders them off the case, assigning them a new one out of rotation. This is the death of a wealthy drug user who overdosed, possibly from drugs injected by another, before being left for several days in a bathtub. The obvious suspect is her husband, but Daniels later appears with evidence that the husband (his new client) was in rehab since before the wife was seen alive. English and Mulligan again visit Harbach, Blunt's maternal grandfather, who is dying of cancer. He denies involvement in Nyers' death but D-Hop identifies him as the one who threatened him. Harbach is then found dead with an apparently self-inflicted wound from the gun that killed Neyers, leaving a note saying that he killed Neyers and acted alone. Walton is released, and Koto forbids Mulligan and English from further pursuing their theory that Blunt was involved. West tells Blunt that she is leaving his company to form another; Blunt reacts angrily and later English confronts him and vows to find him out. Fantastic Episode.moreless
