Final Thoughts:
What an incredibly deep episode and suspenseful episode. The whole story is coming together and the family tragedy only just unfolding. Linden and Holder are great together, each standing up for each other, which has me rooting for both of these characters to make it out of this with their sanity. All the people involved in this complex mystery is keeping me glued to the show and the family tragedy adds a lot of heart to this dark story of this brutal killing.
