Who was running the police line the night David Tate's wife and kid died? No one, by the looks of it. (I guess we had to make the trip to get the beads, but I really did not want to make that graphic of a trip.)
They worked really heard to justify how hard Hastings/Tate was working to put everything after, but it's still requires him to be a genius near-omniscient characters at times. And I'm not totally sure about all of his motives - if this was all personal, why all the other killings. Still, there were some really intense scenes - everything in the cabin was a bit nerve racking.
That was not how I was expecting the Charlotte plot to turn. Speaking of omniscient characters who do exactly what the plot: Cesar! I don't think this will quite be the last time Cesar & Charlotte hear about all of this.
I did appreciate how Linder also noticed how random Fausto's appearance was in the desert to collect Hector's body. Sure a lot of buried bodies near the borders, which makes me wonder about whoever it is killing all those women and not burying the bodies. (And it's kind of good they're not actually finding the fictional murder of some real murders.)
So, can we do fantasy booking about the "WHY?"? My money is on: He was suicidal his entire life because of his parent's murder. He only stayed alive to testify at the murderer's parole board. Once the murderer died, he had no reason to live.
