On last week’s show they were trying to link Joe and Ray together.  Linden told Ray that she knew he did not kill his own wife; it seemed so confusing. I had no idea what to expect because the girl in the hospital said, the man said he’d save her.  I had no idea what to believe. Linden and Holder were hoping the latest victim would be able to tell them enough to bring in the right guy.

On tonight’s show Sarah and Holder get a break in the case. Seward fights against his own mortality. Bullet takes on the role of the protector.
