Mr Mercedes (S2) - Episode 9


Posted: October 18, 2018

Now things are starting to happen. And things are starting to move away from the book. As you might remember from last episode Brady left the hospital and no one could really understand how he could do that. We don’t get any good explanation of it but up and running he is and eventually he ends up with the Babineau’s. Surprisingly though he makes them take him to the police where he lets himself get arrested.

Why Brady does this we don’t know. It’s speculated and somewhat confirmed by Brady (if he’s telling the truth) that after Dr. Babineau’s surgery he has been feeling remorse for what he has done. Could be he is and is now willing to accept what he’s done and take the punishment. I highly doubt that, but you never know.

Brady isn’t the only one in trouble with the law thought. Bill finds himself arrested as well for all the things he’s done in connection to the Mercedes killings and the arrest of Brady. And now things are starting to get a bit out of hand. I mean why would they arrest Bill? There’s no logic to it and then at the end of the episode when he is placed in the same cell as Brady… That is just too much. The cops would have to be real morons to do a thing like that.

So, while a lot is happening in this episode I’m not that sure it’s all good. I’m also not sure where they are going with this. I feel quite certain that they won’t end the story in the season finale but for the love of God, please don’t make this into a prison thing where Bill and Brady become cellmates…

Lilja's final words about Mr Mercedes (S2) - Episode 9



They now have one episode to convince me that they have taken the right path when they decided to not use Finders Keepers. So far, I’m not convinced.
