By the end of this recap, devoted readers, you will know who killed Danny Solano. This week’s “Gracpeoint” finale opens with Carver in the hospital having his heart tested. When he returns to the police station, he is suspended due to his health, but disregards this and continues to work as usual. After asking Ellie if she ever found Tom’s computer, knowing full well she didn’t, he tells her that he called Joe and Tom to come down to the station.

This week’s episode of “Gracepoint” was the penultimate, so there is only one episode left to solve Danny’s murder and tie up all the loose ends. Time is running out for Carver and Miller, and not just because the show is ending. After Carver’s collapse last week, he can’t keep his heart condition a secret anymore. As soon as the chief of police sees his medical records, he’s done. He has 24 hours to solve the case before he’s fired.

In this week’s episode of “Gracepoint,” with Tom still missing, the search team continues to comb through the woods near where his bike was found. At the Miller’s, Owen can’t seem to comfort a crying Dillon, and Carver tells Ellie she should go home, calling her by her first name for the first time. Joe agrees, insisting that Dillon needs his mom, and the search team can take it from here. What seemed like minutes later, Paul finds Tom after he hears something in the trees.

Gracepoint S1E7: “All You Care About Is Other People’s Children”

The town of Gracepoint comes together to hold Jack Reinhold’s funeral. A choir sings the hymn from the Titanic (which I recognized instantly), and Paul delivers the sermon, saying the community let an innocent man “be smeared and intimidated.” “We failed him, just as we failed and continue to fail Danny Solano,” he says. Later, at the repast, Carver confronts Paul about his veiled criticism of him and the rest of the police department. Paul says it wasn’t veiled at all: Paul told the police they should be protecting Jack, and they ignored him. This, the same day the papers have called Carver “the worst cop in California.”

GRACEPOINT, S1E6 RECAP: ‘What kind of world is this’

Standard

By Lexie Schapitl

All eyes are on Jack Reinhold in this week’s episode of “Gracepoint,” after last week’s development that he did time for sex with a minor. A convicted pedophile who runs a youth wildlife club and mysteriously turned up with a dead boy’s phone? Even people who have grown up with Jack are now looking at him differently, suspicious of his motives. Some have already assumed the worst.
