Now aware that her partner has forged the key piece of evidence that led to the arrest of mayoral candidate Darren Richmond, Det. Linden again delays her departure. Linden tells her boss and he gives her the okay to continue the investigation. She is beginning to see the possibility of a larger conspiracy. Richmond is seriously injured and in a coma. His staffers Jamie and Gwen are at the hospital waiting for news from the doctors and are desperately trying to get in touch with his next-of-kin, his sister. Holder seems lost and doesn't quite understand what is going on. The police have arrested the shooter, who is Stan's employee Belko. At home Stan is having problems not only with Rosie's death but also with the fact that Mitch has left. He's stunned when Linden tells him Richmond is innocent and the charges will be dropped. He asks Terry to stay with them. At the police station, Belko has a run-in with the police. Written by garykmcd

Well, I Guess They've Got Enough for Another Season
20 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Well, here are the questions. It's no secret that Holder created evidence to damn Richmond. How can his partner trust him? Belko shot Richmond and he lies in intensive care. What will be his fate? Mitch has taken off, leaving Stan and the boys with Terri. Hmm! Then there is Gwen's role in this whole thing, and, of course, the sitting Mayor. Sarah Linden is aware now that there is so much more than the murder of Rosie to look at. As a matter of fact, she has been lied to and suspects she and Jack are in danger. By the way, I find Jack to be one of the least likable kids I've seen. He is petulant and dangerous to himself and others. As is always the case, the episode ends with a highly dramatic event. It got me hooked.
