Mitch is on the road but can't help seeing Rosie anywhere she looks. Linden continues to track Rosie's movements after she was last seen at the casino just after midnight. She's also trying to learn the identity of the man with the strange tattoo. She learns of Rosie's backpack from Stan and gets it from the now retired Lt. Oakes. She quickly realizes that Holder switched the backpacks. There's a fire at the shoe store where the Beausoleil escort service kept its computers. CCTV footage from the area around the store shows the man with the tattoo driving one of Stan's trucks. Darren Richmond is determined to continue his campaign. Gwen is thinking of leaving Seattle and taking a position in Washington. Stan is upset when Janek gives a gift to one of his boys as he doesn't want them to know about his past. Written by garykmcd

Numb Is the Perfect Title for This Episode
20 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The most obvious use of the word "numb" refers to Richmond, whose legs are useless. He wants so badly to continue to campaign against the Mayor, who is still making hay, even after Richmond was eliminated as a suspect. Other numb characters include Holder, who is starting to slide downward. Mitch, who has run away, leaving the boys behind. Terry, who has no life and is the only thing the boys have. Linden, whose efforts are constantly short of success. Jack, who has no real life with his mother, who is totally directed toward the case. Stan has gone to see Jane because he knows of no other place to get help. He is given some awful news. One little issue I have with this series is the day by day thing. It's hard to imaging that all this is happening in a couple weeks. It seems that so much investigation gets done in a really quick way. Still keeps us jumping. Sarah makes a startling discovery as we end the hour.
