Ben Horne continues to slip deeper into insanity while Bobby tries to win his admiration by tailing Hank Jennings and photographs him in a drug- dealing meeting.

Onward and Upward
16 August 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Some pretty interesting stuff. We start out with Bobby getting a new job, doing dirty work for Benjamin Home. Cooper is working to clear his name as he is suspected of peddling cocaine. James is totally taken with the beautiful woman who is having him repair her Jaguar. Andy and his adversary begin to fight over custody of the little boy and it appears each is getting more than they bargained for. Bobby comes up with incriminating evidence, but Audrey is watching him and pulls a coup involving Cooper. At the end there is an appearance from someone we have been wondering about. There is even more, but this episode is mostly exposition.
