Cops: "Oh, and Jamie's gun was empty, too. In case you were thinking one single part of this sad goat rodeo was unavoidable."
It's kind of great because the next several scenes are like the ending scenes of every other episode. Which is, presumably, because we're about to get a whole new case and that's the real deal with this episode. Boy I hope the show gets renewed, or else it's going to be one more black mark: How the finale was actually the penultimate episode plus twenty minutes of this one.
I still can't believe it was Jamie. Although it does make me feel better that the gay element was only in my imagination. I mean, any murder with a political campaign it's always the Jamie, the kinda weird, ambitious, crazy-loyal kid who wants to be a vizier behind the throne, so I'm glad that suffices. I just really liked Jamie. The things he was judgmental about are the things I am challenged by as well. Plus, he was wee.
Stan wakes up alone, growling like a big old bear, and heads out into the house. Mitch has gone wild in the night! Digging through all of Rosie's very pink shit and packing it up in the family business's moving boxes.
Stan: "Welcome back to sanity, lady. I'll just help you without saying anything."
Mitch: "Much appreciated."
Holder: "Okay, here's some bonus evidence about the whole case that we just solved. Including film from Rosie's camera."
Linden: "Film from Rosie's camera, you say. Send it to the lab."
Holder: "Uh, we already solved this Killing though. No more Killing to solve. Now you're just ghost-whispering for fun."
Linden: "Valid. Chief Nicole will be charged with obstruction of justice, and being a complete dickhole, but won't make a deal with us to charge Ames as well. Not really sure why that would be true."
Carlson: "Holder, I don't think you have to worry about IA nailing you on the shooting. You're going to end up in the clear. Also, great job you guys! Somehow, apparently I mean that."
Linden, going through the evidence: "Hey, wait..."
Holder, Carlson, The World: "Don't say it don't say it don't say it"
Linden: "No, I'm just saying we have a conversation at like 3:30 between Ames and Jamie, so we could still get him. Plus the broken taillight on the cab he took home, that Jasper told me about..."
Holder: "Hey, that is true actually."
Carlson: "While you were fired and homeless and in a mental institution, we actually looked into that. It's a no-go."
