Storyline

Although she is now out of the psychiatric ward, Linden will not give up on the investigation. She asks Gwen to use her father's influence in Washington to get a federal warrant to search the casino. Gwen has a tense confrontation with her father but gets it in the end. The FBI raid the casino and apparently find nothing. Linden has in fact recovered the city hall key card she saw. It doesn't lead them to the Mayor's office as expected but to another office in the building. Stan meanwhile is ordered by mobster Janek Kovarski to eliminate Joseph Nowak. Stan refuses but Janek knows how to get what he wants. He's in for a bit of a surprise however. When Stan gets home, there is a surprise awaiting him. On the election trail, Richmond is facing the public disclosure of his attempted suicide. Written by garykmcd

Annoying plot holes
22 May 2013 | by (Perry, NY United States) – See all my reviews

**SPOILERS***

Argh, what an annoying episode! Some great revelations - who Linden's psychiatrist is, say - and, as always, well-acted well-written, subtle, and intricately woven together, but oh DEAR, the plot holes.

The first, once they had the FBI and a search warrant, I can think of no reason on earth why the evidence they find did not go to the FBI to make a Federal case. I can't think that the FBI would let someone remove evidence that way - certainly not someone they describe as "an observer". The second? They find all sorts of campaign material in Richmond's City Hall office. It may seem a small point, but people in political office are not allowed to run campaigns from their elected offices. They can't use the staff there for it, they don't keep materials there. They have, as Richmond does, a campaign office elsewhere, paid for by the campaign, not taxpayers. It was a visual clue for us, but completely wrong.

The other troubling thing in the last few episodes especially, certainly as one son acts up at school and at home, is that nobody says "these kids need counseling". They didn't have to show them getting it, but I found it highly unrealistic that at the school meeting in the previous episode, neither was there a school counselor present, nor did the staff at the meeting bring up counseling. Frankly, I'm pretty sure it's routine for cops to mention the availability of counseling to crime victims.

These don't spoil my enjoyment of a well-crafted show, but they are things that it seems should have been seen and fixed by the writers, producer, or someone.
