Mr Mercedes (S2) - Episode 4
Posted: September 13, 2018
When the episode starts we’re back to Sadie jumping from the roof. Bill is confused about her jumping and can’t really make sense of it. Why did she jump? Why did she try to kill him and is Brady to blame. Later in the episode Bill says he thinks Brady is faking his coma. He doesn’t know how but he thinks that is what he is doing. Antonio Montez who investigates Sadie’s death isn’t convinced. He is convinced that Bill knows more than he is telling though.
For Brady it’s all about finding another person now and he finds that in Al. Al works at the hospital and it turns out that through a game he plays Brady somehow manages to get into his head. This might introduce the pink fish that we recognize from the book. In Al’s body Brady leaves the hospital and visit the place of his masterpiece. The place where he got the name The Mercedes Killer…
We also get to see more of Lou. She is having trouble getting over the fact that Brady tried to kill her and she drinks far too much. This leads to her girlfriend leaving her and later when she’s out drinking she beats up a guy who is a jerk but I don’t think she really wanted to beat him as badly as she does.
As the episode comes to an end, Bill starts to understand that Brady is in some way involved in Sadie’s death. He can’t really explain how but after he and Jerome manage to get into Sadie’s phone, it’s clear that she has been manipulated by Brady. Now Bill just has to find out how and stop it.
I think the season is starting to move along in a good way. The plot works and the setup is also working. I can’t wait to see Brady getting out more and Bill trying to find out what’s going on. The only thing I think we need a lot more of is Holly. She has been a bit too invisible for my taste. I want more of her.
