Back in the city, newly promoted Chief Constable Giles (Nigel Bennett) makes it clear to Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), that he'll be keeping a very close eye on police matters. Meanwhile, Murdoch's beloved former associate, Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), is now working alongside Acting Detective George Crabtree (Jonny Harris) and Dr. Emily Grace (Georgina Reilly), a feisty young protégé.

Murdoch is on suspension and goes to a place he knows
11 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Murdoch is on suspension from the police department for getting out of jail. His boss tells the new Inspector that there was something wrong with the jail locks that is how Murdoch got out and a female murderer got out too. Murdoch had let her out.

Murdoch goes away. He end up at a hotel he once lived in and had left some belonging to a lady there. He finds out she has been charged with murder and is in jail for killing another woman with an axe. Murdoch visits her in jail and she is snotty with a bad temper toward Murdoch. He helps her but not in the legal capacity of a detective.

Back in Toronto a new female coroner comes in and Dr Ogden is training her somewhat. Dr Odgen is now married. Crabtree gets Murdoch's position in the police dept and is on his first case. A man is found dead with gun shot wounds and the wife visits the police station. She is told by Crabtree her husband is dead and she acts devastated. As she leaves she asks Crabtree how her husband was shot. He becomes suspicious because he never told her husband was shot.

After Murdoch helps his friend and solves the case of two people murdered in the Klondike he goes back to the police station and wants to confess to what he did regarding the female he let out of jail. Inspector Brackenreid tells him to shut up and go do his job as a detective. He said he put his own job on the line for lieing for Murdoch and Murdoch will jeopardize both their jobs. So for now Murdoch is back on his job.
