aghst September 25, 2022 Share September 25, 2022 Quote As Decourcy prepares to take Sinclair Dryden to trial, despite pushback from the Suffolk County DA, Jackie tracks down a key witness. Siobhan reaches a settlement on behalf of the Mendoza family, but her moment in the spotlight is cut short. Caysen is offered a second chance by a loved one. Reckoning with the rifts in her own family, Jenny meets her long-lost half-brother. Season finale. OK this didn't feel exactly like a season finale, not too many big cliffhangers. DeCourcy bats away Guy Dan and Dryden trying to gaslight him on his guilt. Then Dryden drops the bomb about Jackie sleeping with Leticia. DeCourcy visits Jackie to bitch him out but Jackie swears he wants to see Dryden prosecuted for the right reasons, not to get him out of the way so he could have his wife. They march ahead and they get not only one of the victims to come forward but Dryden's daughter Victoria to come forward. Strange, the victim says Quaaludes knock out people for 70 hours, make them hazy in their memories. Wouldn't that make her less reliable as a witness? But if they could prove Dryden drugged her, maybe her testimony will be accepted. No rape kit evidence though. DeCourcy's opening statement is so persuasive that Leticia leaves Dryden, leaves him a short note but it's in glorious cursive penmanship! Like she hired a calligrapher to write up maybe a half dozen words. Dryden drinks and drugs himself into a coma, which suspends the trial. Was it his legal troubles, or Letitia leaving him? Or the fancy way Letitia conveyed her departure? Siobhan wins a key decision and to celebrate, she wants to take DeCourcy for a shrimp dinner but he wants lo mein with shrimp at this dingy Chinese place in a dodgy neighborhood. Wouldn't you know it, union goon comes at her with a tire iron but DeCourcy is packing and chases him away, but pissed at Siobhan for hiding the fact that the union tried to intimidate her. Jen visits her half brother in some institution. He's lucid and tells her that their father actually took care of him over the years. So Jen apologizes to her father but no hugs or anything. Jackie returns home, to find Letitia and Jen talking. So he's busted and his excuse is that he's a terrible guy and shrugs. So Jen tells him she cheated, she's a terrible person too. But instead of shrugging, she says she'd going to move out. With what money? Jackie seems gleeful about putting away a very generous employer. He was bemoaning all his huge bills, especially footing the Bill for Benedetta at a fancy NY university. Guy Dan chooses DeCourcy as interim DA after winning the race for the state AG. But DeCourcy says he plans to investigate why the DA's office was trying to cover up for Dryden. John Doman isn't as good on City on a Hill as he was in Homicide or The Affair, usually playing the smug, rich or powerful asshole. But Guy Dan is still an entertaining character, though this may be it for him, since he's now a state AG and DeCourcy won't have to deal with him on a daily basis. 1 Link to comment
