Linden renews her relationship with an old friend. Holder attends Bullet's funeral and then tries to make things right with his girlfriend Caroline. He also makes amends with his old partner, Carl Reddick. The detectives are called to the scene of a murder after firemen find a body inside a burnt out car. The coroner identifies the victim as a female who died sometime the previous day from a gunshot to the head. Whoever did it took out all of her teeth - and her ring finger is missing though it's a somewhat older injury. They think they have found Angie Gower.

Setting Up the Conclusion
27 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is a funeral being planned for bullet. We see her parents. Holder sits in the church as Danette comes in. Later Lyric makes an appearance. The sad thing is that Lyric is probably doomed. It's Twitch that will make his life a better one. Linden is obsessed now that Ray has been executed. She knows that Adrian holds the key to the reality of things. Holder and Sarah find a tree house in the woods and realize that it would be a hiding place for someone who wanted to kill a small child. Signs now point to Reddick because of his involvement in all of this kind of stuff. He has been distant and angry, but what is the motive? The last part of this one is Adrian walking down a street after school, bouncing a soccer ball, heading for home. A car is obviously following him.
