Storyline

Decourcy finds out he has a powerful enemy in town after an eventful Sunday at Church-one that puts his wife, Siobhan, in an uncomfortable position. Jackie is stirring up trouble in his own home and his distrustful mother-in-law, Rosa, is onto him. Investigators Hank Signa and Rachel Behnam look into an unsolved missing persons case that could be connected to the robbery in Revere. This could mean trouble for Frankie Ryan, who's busy laundering his most recent loot and, with the help of his brother Jimmy, getting carried away in the process. Written by SHOWTIME

What They Saw in Southie High
31 October 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This is still Kevin Bacon's show as Jackie Rohr dominates. Although in this episode Jimmy thinks he has the clap and goes to see a specialist at a free clinic. Unfortunately they phone his mother in law and tell her that Jackie has the all clear.

The mother in law hates Jackie and tells him the results were positive. It is a case of playing mind games. Bad news for Jackie's wife, she is feeling frisky but Jackie knows he cannot have sex with his wife.

As for Decourcy, as a prosecutor. Cops do not like him because he wanted bad cops prosecuted. A church shooting incident leaves him with a feeling that some in his own black community do not like him as well.

With Jackie Rohr though, Decourcy seems to appreciate his knowledge and experience. I sense that the relationship between the two men is that of the novice Kevin Costner and the more vintage Sean Connery in The Untouchables.

As for the investigation regarding the armoured car robbery. Jackie gets an important tip from his snitch Jimmy, it cost him a bit of money.

It might not be long before the bad guys start to feel the pressure. So far this show is simmering along nicely.
