Storyline

Ryan's belief that that Joe Carroll has more acolytes than the six they have so far identified is proved correct when a street performer - wearing an Edgar Allan Poe mask - sets a man on fire and then disappears into the crowd. Using CCTV, they soon identify the attacker as Rick Kester. They question his wife who says her husband, from whom she is separated, is dangerous but that she also has little idea where he might be found. Ryan realizes that the dead man was one of Carroll's critics. Meanwhile, relations among Joey's kidnappers continues to deteriorate. Paul and Emma continue to bicker and Paul decides to leave the house, returning later with someone in tow. Flashbacks reveal a new reason Paul may not like Emma. Written by garykmcd

What a Bunch of Bad Guys
27 July 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In order for a series like this to happen, we need to accept that such awful forces are possible. This guy in prison is pulling strings to cause all kinds of horrors. For some reason his minions are willing to put their lives on the line. But what's in it for them other than to fill their psychotic appetites. Putting the whole issue of verisimilitude, watching Kevin Bacon and his forces do battle with this guy, is very entertaining. One question. Isn't there a way of freezing this guy out? Even with the kidnapping of the boy, put the guy in some fortress with nothing but the food he gets to eat and a couple books to read (and a little exercise thrown in).
