He said that it was like somebody had turned the light out in his soul, it was so dark
8 January 2018 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

In a hotel room, two cleaning women found a dead body drowned in a bathtube. Detectives found a note on the sink where he wrote a goodbye but the name was mispelled. He was a reporter (freelance) who wrote articles some people didn't like from dirty cops to toxic waste. A former girlfriend (Susan Floyd) knew he suffered from a sort of bipolar disorder, so he could be a suicidal (that is true, but it could be a jealously rage, because the pills used in the accident were the one prescribed to her and she was angry at him for a love affair on the side). Was she help him to die? The bruises found on victim's neck didn't convince McCoy, despite a video that explains everything. At trial, his terapist can't believe it could have been suicide, because his mental condition was not so desperate. Anyway a third man shadow was seen by McCoy in the video. Who is he?

An original episode, not the best one, but pretty nice. Anyway I think it's hard to deal within a family with a disturbed guy like the man killed in this episode.
