  • Which is why he wont kill Mitch because it wont benefit anyone, the mission is over.
  • Mitch tells Stack that we believe in miracles and everyone should be allowed to live regradless of cost. No one should be killed like that.
  • Police surround that hanger and Stack threatens to kill Mitch if they enter.
  • Stack commits suicide…..
Final Thoughts:
Another heart pounding edge of your seat episode. As much as I would of wanted to see Stack brought down in court his suicide is great justice. He is a character you love to hate right from the start (Shaw From Chuck) and his death means that one monster from these awful killings is finally out of the picture. The promo for next week’s episode it appears that Alex will be next one as Mitch and Ray try to do their best to bring her down.
