Mr Mercedes (S2) - Episode 7
Posted: October 4, 2018
In episode seven Dr. Babineau and his wife continue to try to get Brady to talk. It doesn’t work as they are hoping but we know Brady is in there and he is preparing to fight. That, however, is something that Dr. Babineau’s wife isn’t. Instead she is trying to sneak off and leave the country. Probably because she knows that the Chinese investors might bail and she doesn’t want to be left with the blame. She thinks that her husband can do that…
A big portion of the episode deals with Al and after his brother bails him out he tells him that he thinks Brady is in his head. His brother, understandably, doesn’t really believe him and that ends up getting him killed. Al, or rather Brady in Al’s body cuts his ear off then slits his throat and then leaves to find Bill and get even with him. It’s this fight Brady has been warming up to during the episode.
Brady finds Bill in his home, preparing for leaving for Ireland with his ex-wife who he has reunited with, in his home. Al gets him when his distracted with a phone call from the ex-wife and really does a number on him and would probably end up killing him if it wasn’t for Ida showing up and distracting Al enough that Bill can grab his gun and put a bullet in his head.
I like the episode. A lot happens and we get to see Brady go after Bill in Al’s body. Now he can’t do that anymore after Bill killing Al. Question now is who’ll be next? Maybe Lou how has been hired by Dr. Babineau to lure Brady out of hiding. It will also be interesting to see how they will solve this going to Ireland thing. I highly doubt that Bill will leave everything and go and maybe Brady (Al) beating him is the thing that keeps him in the US going after Brady?
Lilja's final words about Mr Mercedes (S2) - Episode 7
I like Dr. Babineau but his wife I don’t really care for. She is a very flat character that you don’t like or dislike (even if it’s more of the later). You just don’t care about her.
