Season 2 | Episode 6 | “Harvest of Souls” | Aired Aug 13, 2014
The mystery of the drawings is solved. Jack has traced his brother’s artistic renderings to a water tower in the middle of the desert. He begins digging and finds a hand belonging to a body. It looks like Sonya’s sister wasn’t Dobbs’ only victim.
Jack comes home to Sonya and lies, saying he was on a hike, not digging up one of his brother’s victims. They briefly discuss Dobbs’ remains and eventually decide to dump them in the trash. Sonya seemingly takes their relationship a step further by offering Jack a key to her place. He announces that he plans to stay in the area, to look for a job and all that. Sonya declares suddenly that she’s not his girlfriend, so he suggests keeping it casual.
Our favorite journalist duo, Daniel and Adriana, get a lead from a priest. When they meet at the church, the priest takes them to speak with the assassin who killed Raul and “saw Jesus.” With bags over their heads, Daniel and Adriana question the man as he makes his confession. He explains Chuchito’s role as a courier in the money-laundering investigation—and yes, the assassin was the one who killed Chuchito. Another puzzle piece falls into place for Daniel and Adriana.
Hank and Sonya get a clue that leads them to visit the house that Galvan put in Charlotte’s name. On the way, Hank feels like it’s a good time for them to talk about Dobbs. He doesn’t know why Sonya hangs out with Jack, and gives her a tough time about it.
They did a nice job cleaning the house after Eleanor’s bloody massacre, as we see Hank and Sonya search through it. Charlotte’s ranch hand, Cesar, is keeping an eye on the house, and calls one of Galvan’s people to say the detectives are there.
Earlier we saw Marco and Sonya warn the prosecutor about the dangers surrounding Abelardo Pintado, the prosecutor they’ve been working with, in Juarez. After an altercation with the police, the prosecutor assures them that he hired private security to protect himself, especially now that he’s in possession of Eva’s deposition. However, when walking down the street, Aberlardo’s “security” ditches him, and the police capture him and put him in a van. They kill him, but try to make it look like an accident.
Sonya and Marco head out to tell Eva the news. Earlier, she found the Mexican police officer that Linder and Bob were torturing in the abandoned shed. At a loss, Eva refuses any more help from the detectives. Later on, she revisits the prisoner with an ax in hand. The man taunts her, calling her vile names. Eva tells him that she’s a good person as she kills him. Linder finds her, understanding what she’s done and why she did it. The two get onto Linder’s motorcycle and ride away.
Daniel and Adriana finally arrive at Grupo Clio, where CEO Sebastian Cerisola refuses to talk. When the journalists give up and leave, Cerisola asks his man to retrieve info on Daniel and especially Adriana. What is he going to do?
Finished with writing the story, Adriana hesitates before publishing—not just because they might be missing something from the puzzle, but because of the dangerous outcomes that result from making their discoveries public. Daniel, on the other hand, isn’t worried, probably because he really doesn’t have anything to lose. He convinces Adriana to send the article to her editor. But it all ends up being pointless because their editor later tells them that he can’t publish it. Their sources and accusations didn’t pass legal, and the newspaper doesn’t want a libelous lawsuit on its hands. Daniel goes mad, yelling at his boss and peeing in his office when the editor asks him to take a drug test. It’s no surprise that Daniel is out of a job now.
Galvan and Cerisola meet for pool. Cerisola tells him how inconvenient the prosecutor’s murder is for business. He wants Galvan to be more discreet, keep Capitan Robles in line, and maybe sit down to read the book Cerisola just gave him.
Marco laments to Sonya about how the prosecutor was one of the good ones, and that they’ve lost Eva’s deposition. But Sonya asks Marco if he knew where the prosecutor was staying, thinking he might have left the deposition in his hotel room.
Marco hands Sonya a gun before they enter the hotel room. Sonya can’t fire a gun since she’s in Mexico and out of her jurisdiction, but Marco wants her to have some kind of protection. They realize that the prosecutor never checked out of the room and begin going through his things. Just as Sonya finds the deposition, the police barge in. They shoot at Marco and Sonya, and she ends up shooting one of them. Marco shoves Sonya out of the room so he can finish off the bad cops.
At first, this seems like a VERY bad situation for them. Yet we can’t forget that they ended up getting back what they thought they had lost: Eva’s deposition against the Mexican police. Hopefully Marco can use the deposition as leverage to get Sonya out of this mess.
