Takeshi Kovacs: [narrating] When everyone lies, telling the truth isn't just rebellion. It's an act of revolution. So think carefully when you speak it, because the truth is a weapon.

The Sleeve´s Identity
17 February 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Ortega discloses to Kovacs the interrogation of her partner and lover Elias Riker to a man to know what happened to his friend Mary Lou Henchy. Kovacs decides to seek out Bancroft to learn why he was dropped into Riker´s sleeve and Miriam tries to seduce him offering his freedom and a new sleeve if he stops his investigation. He refuses and heads to an infected area where Bancroft is and he explains why he selected that specific sleeve. Then he dies completely infected and is worshipped by the infected people while he is sleeved to another clone in a clean area. Poe gives a lead to Kovacs where Bancroft was on the night that he died. He goes with Ortega and they find a footage of Isaac and Bancroft, uncovering a secret.

"The Wrong Man" is another great episode of "Altered Carbon" where many secrets are disclosed including Kovacs´ former identity and the reason for Ortega´s obsession for him. The reason why Bancroft was murdered seems to be coming to an end unless a new plot point is created. My vote is eight.
