As Bill recovers from his harrowing confrontation with Al, several characters battle over what to do with Brady
Felix’s only hope is to make progress very fast, so he pulls strings with the attorney general (Montez’s boss) to stop Montez and Bill from transferring Brady to the secure facility at Crestmore. In doing so, he also stops Montez’s dream of prosecuting Brady and riding that publicity to the top job. Instead, the attorney general now wants to prosecute Brady himself. And even though the sweater-clad hospital manager now agrees that Brady must be transferred before any more of his employees turn up dead, the attorney general is friendly with the hospital owner himself. I really like how this season has showcased the conditions under which evil is allowed to grow and thrive. Instead of dealing with Brady like the mass murderer he is, everyone sees him as their own ticket to fame, history, and money. I suspect there will be more dead bodies to come.
While visiting Bill in the hospital, Holly has an emotional moment coming to terms with how much she cares for him. That’s not even her only major character development this episode. After providing Brady’s hair sample to her contact and asking his chemist friend to scan the sample for various illegal drugs, she even asks him out. Love to see Holly come into her own; really hope nothing extremely horrible happens to her in the next few episodes.
I’m not clear exactly sure what’s going on in the wreckage of Brady’s brain, but apparently, he’s waking up. I had been waiting for his mother to show up in his ghost-filled dreamscape, and she finally does — wearing the creepy clown mask, of course, because nothing in Brady’s brain is normal. After that, though, Brady follows his little brother up the stairs of his brain basement, walking up into the light.
This is followed by an apparition of Brady in his ice-cream-man uniform whispering to a sleeping Bill. When Bill wakes up, he immediately drives to the hospital — where Brady is nowhere to be found. I’ll admit, I was a little confused by the structure of these last 10 or so minutes. First, we see Brady about to be transferred, until Felix stops it. Then Bill arrives shortly after, and Brady’s gone. But it’s not clear whether he got up and walked out on his own, or got transferred against Felix’s orders, or what. It’s a little too confusing to be a cliffhanger. But now that we’ve recovered from last week’s action, I’m excited to see where we go in this season’s final two episodes.
