Storyline

Sam comes under intense scrutiny during an official inquiry into the deaths of two brothers while they were in prison. Her findings are soon challenged by her colleague, Leo Dalton, who is brought in to perform a second autopsy. Meanwhile, a series of murders that are taking place cast suspicion on a recently released ex-convict. He served years in prison after being convicted of killing his wife; the evidence against him was given by Sam during one of her very first cases. During his time in prison, however, he continued to deny his guilt. Sam begins to believe that someone is stalking her, while the police have trouble locating the ex-convict.

Sam Is In the Gunsight
6 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Sam is seen as unyielding and stubborn. In a couple instances here, she can't admit to making simple mistakes. Obviously, she documents everything as she pursues conclusions, but if she makes even a slight error in day to day life, she can't accept that. Vulnerability of any kind causes dread. In this episode, a man who should not have been sent to prison blames Sam and is playing mind games with her. Excellent setup for part two.
