Earlier in the season, the missing necklace is on a leather strap. When stolen from Dr. Jacoby's office, it is on a chain. The next time we see it, it is on the leather strap again. See more »


Hank Jennings: [looks at the briefcase containing $90,000] It's all here. Pretty generous, Josie. Sitting in that concrete box all that time, 90 grand seemed like all the money in creation. Kept me going. It's a funny thing. Back in the world, I don't know... it seems kind of light.

Not Quite a Wrap
4 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I guess these end-of-season episodes serve two purposes. Wrap some of the events up, but leave questions answered for the next season. Leo continues to go after Shelley. As a matter of fact, she ends up not unlike those serial maidens of the twenties, hanging from a rope, awaiting the effects of a timing device. There are so many ends to tie up that one should just read the synopsis. The mill finally comes into play. Cooper get a surprise. Laura's father has a surprise himself. Then there's Audrey becoming a hooker in her father's brothel. Jimmy has a near encounter with an ax and on and on. This episode may have tried to do too much. But it still is captivating.
