Where Is the Devil
16 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a nicely sophisticated episode. We are made privy now to what is going on with the Larsens. Once Sarah tells the Larsens that Rosie drowned and lies that she was already unconscious to spare her, Mitch begins to obsess about the drowning, imagining how horrible it must be. We are made aware that one of Richmond's campaign cars contained Rosie's body. She was alive when she went into the lake. Richmond is asked to keep quiet about the events of Rosie's death for the sake of the investigation, but word of it leaks. Also, one of the campaign leads is accused of being the leak. Meanwhile, Sarah and Stephen begin to investigate the cage and find that there is sexual involvement by the Skateboarder and his rich friend. Also, a pedophile janitor witnessed an assault on Rosie. He has been able to look through a hole in the wall. He almost dies when he jumps from a window. Holden gets him to admit what he has been up to. He says that the devil did. Why he says this is revealed.
