Storyline

Having received his psychiatric report River discovers that Stevie had a second phone. It reveals calls from the ex-convict brother she helped put away Jimmy, but he had an alibi for the time of her death. However there is evidence to suggest she led a somewhat risqué double life and River's partner Ira is perturbed that River is keeping facts from Chrissie. The latest manifestation is Jordy Merton, a site foreman who died in suspicious circumstances and whose wife River spares from learning about his secret. The more menacing manifestation of Cream, however, starts to appear more frequently. Written by don @ minifie-1

River Back in the Game
6 September 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This has our forlorn character facing the end of his career. At times one wonders what keeps him going. Of course, here it is Stevie and what happened to her. As with other sullen British detectives, like Jack Frost, we have his quirkiness making him unpalatable to his superiors. More is revealed about Stevie and her brother and some stuff that was going on. We also have her screw loose mother making her threats. We find out that Stevie had two phones and what is on the second phone comes directly into play. A good episode for sure with the principle character slipping between the two worlds that haunt him. We also get to see his relationship develop with his counselor.
