– Then showing is his grab and bag system

– Bosch trying to stay ambiguous about Brasher’s shooting, claiming his eyes were clouded my the mace

THE BAD:

– It was bound to happen, this episode seemed to drag as the set up the Waits last hurrah

– Brasher sticking with her lie to save her bacon

– Moore talking the pity pills saying he is to slow for the job anymore

– Brasher tossing Harry out

– As always, Irving is out for himself,  now Bosch is the head of he Waits investigation by not on the FID squad.

THE WTF:

– Very commendable that Bosch puts police ethics above romance and cannot back Brasher.  In the first episode it is alluded to the fact he planted the gun.

– Not a good move by Bosch to give Waits his cell number as this time it interfered with his call to Maddy.  Also is Bosch just using the phone Maddie gave him at home.

– Waits must be slipping as his drunk target escaped

– Once Harry found the book of skulls, you knew Elinore would get involved

– Why take something hard copy records?
