The two are called to the crime scene where Howard died. I think Kate Beckett had some reasonable sessions with her therapist Worf from Star Trek. So her scenes feel like exposition, and redundant with the flashbacks or the scenes where Riggs actually and sincerely opens up to any of the Murtaughs. In my mind, I saw Riggs's father as Tom Waits. I was hoping his father would just show up for an episode in the present time and it would be Tom Waits.
I find it telling that Riggs confides in Trish more easily and naturally than in Cahill. He tells her a story about his past and how he felt when his trailer was taken. Riggs is not happy and tells Trish he'll take care of it. That all came crashing down when they started the child abuse thing. Even though Riggs and Murtaugh already spend enough time together Murtaugh even has the guy in his will , Riggs reluctantly agrees to temporarily shack up with his partner. I was afraid he'd be too one-dimensional and a butt monkey and this episode kind of reassured me.
Apparently the victim was recording conversations and illegal bets and clearly someone found out and took action. A robbery is in progress just as Riggs and Murtuagh start investigating where the tunnel leads. For instance, Thomas Lennon is understandably a busy guy, but his presence and how well he works here as Leo Getz is just more proof of why he needs to be a series regular. The outlaws still have an ax to grind and they seem like the most viable suspects. I'd love to see more of those two, there was a nice balance shaping up.
She brings up his dad. Leo shows up at Murtaugh's place to tell him about the windfall while a drunken Riggs crashes his trailer into Murtaugh's backyard. She was the only secure home he had ever known until now. I wonder if the writers will ever give him a break. No matter his history, there is no way he should be on any police force. Meanwhile, Murtaugh updates his will, while Riggs struggles to come to terms with his past.
Keep the conversation going in the comments section below. A Bowman and Getz solo entry would be an all-time best for the show. Sadly I might be leaving these shows in the next month or so. Poor Murtaugh, surrounded by needy people! The perpetrator is in the apartment trying to kill Leo while they are outside arguing about the will. This episode summed up my problem with her. Riggs and Murtaugh are on fire in this one, plus Leo freaking Getz is back, which in itself is always comedic gold. The next morning he is quite embarrassed.
However, this glimpse of mortality also inspires Murtaugh to think about his will and Riggs to re-visit his past. And his wife is right: she should be furious with Riggs, but how can you be when he looked like that. Trish is so upset with him that she can barely talk. Miranda was his safe heaven, when she was taken from him he was suicidal then driven by his lust for revenge. Riggs is in Cahill's office.
Are you looking forward to seeing Thomas Lennon back in Episode 5 to reprise his role as Leo Getz? Bowman was actually kind of savvy in this one, especially when dealing with Leo. I don't really care about the procedural aspects and the storyline this year isn't doing it for me. Danger plays out while these two are oblivious to it all. Edited November 10, 2017 by TheRabbi Well I might be in the minority but I love this season. This allows the ending to have legitimate reveals rather than every beat of the mystery already having played out.

The harder that the show works to connect its dots across the board means that it can be more cryptic with the cases of the week. Leo stabbed the perp in self defense. Bailey claims he wasn't murdered but had a stroke. It's his regular hiding place. Scorsese discovers that Howard was indeed murdered and provides them all with the evidence.
Afterwards, they go to Howard's apartment above the bar to find it ransacked. He invites Riggs to stay at their house. Murtaugh and Riggs go to the bar and find a hole leading to an underground tunnel while Leo tries to distribute Howard's remains in the plants at the Jockey Club. No wonder Miranda's death sent him off the deep end. Now that that's over and done with all the stuff that he managed to keep under control while Miranda was in his life is resurfacing.

Riggs talks to Murtaugh about the situation. I hope his therapist gets him to finally acknowledge his feelings of abandonment. Now we have to deal with more of Riggs's emotional traumas. I do love Tom Lennon's portrayal. Murtaugh tells Avery about his will.
