If Only the Fool Would Persist in His Folly
27 November 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

It is still Jackie who is manipulating events. He wants in with Decourcy's vision so Jackie needs to make some moves

One bad cop is transferred from drugs to homicide. He is not happy about that, he will make less money as he cannot shake down drug dealers as a sideline.

Jackie also sets up Jimmy who his arrested by the FBI in front of his kids. Jackie's revenge for some of his information not working out too well. Jackie found the armoured car but not the bodies. In this episode we see Jimmy's and Frankie's parents. Jackie was toying with them as well.

Decourcy meanwhile is not happy with the local pastor and let's his wife know it. It seems Reverend Fields may not be as clean. As for Jackie's wife, she might find solace from a catholic priest from Northern Ireland.

I found this to be a slow burn episode. If this was a game of chess, it was some pieces were being shifted into position. If it was not for Kevin Bacon's performance I wonder if I would be thinking of baling out by now.
