Did You Know?


The news broadcast on the television in the bar reported the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States. That places the events in this episode on and around June 26, 2015, roughly six weeks following the 5/9 hack. See more »


Mr. Sutherland stages a Breaking and Entering crime to cover the murder, however he doesn't steal anything except for the cash in the wallet. He throws an easily stealable laptop to the ground (mac addresses can be changed, it wouldn't be traceable) and leaves most of the apartment untouched. This is a poorly disguised attempt for someone that apparently had thought the murder through.

He also places the gun in the victim's hand when the presumption is that the victim attempted to protect themselves and was shot by the same gun. This makes zero sense as the perpetrator would have the gun, not the victim. See more »

Something is brewing...
3 August 2016 | by medina-43247See all my reviews

Until the last couple of episodes we had seen a very fast (and often confusing) unfolding of events, this has now switched to a more paced, friendly development which now allows spectators to really appreciate character development, which is IMO has been severely underrated and has provided us with a plethora of interesting and driven characters, something that perhaps was missing during season 1.

This episode is probably the best so far in this season, the plot is getting thicker everywhere, you are not completely sure about what is going on at times which keeps you on the edge of your seat. This episode seems pivotal for story development and as always cinematography and music are on point.
