It twisted and turned and went from the father to a school mate to finally the young girl that killed him.
It was interesting.
But there were a lot more interesting things happening as well. Megan (Delaney) learned from Lacey (her daughter) that her ex-husband planned to move (with Lacey) to California. And she was not pleased, to put it mildly.
Kate wasn't pleased when she found out either. I'm coming back to Kate.
We also learned some information about the White police officer. (There are two cops who are regulars on the show, a White man and an African-American woman. I need to learn their names.) He got back with his wife at the start of this season. On the latest episode we learned that his wife is two months pregnant.
There were nice moments where all the characters got shading as we learned more about them. It was a really solid episode.
But explain Kate to me, okay?
She's dating Megan's ex. And sleeping with him. And she's upset that he's planning to move to California but hasn't told her.
I get all that.
Here's where I get confused.
He tells her he should have mentioned it to her but what he wants is for her to come with him, to move to California.
That's what I don't get. He thinks she should entertain that idea. I think she should have been insulted.
She's the head of the county's morgue department, friends with the mayor, etc.
And she's supposed to give all that up to move out to California with him?
She's his girlfriend.
Do you see my point?
I could have understood it if he had said, "Kate, marry me, let's move to California." But instead it's like, "I'm not sure I want to spend my life with you but could you please leave your job and your friends and your life and follow me out to Califonia and out there I'll decide what I want?"
She turned down the move which I agree with. But she never raised the points I am. Do you see my point?
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
