What I’m Watching: Longmire

Longmire: Season 6, Episode 7 “Opiates and Antibiotics” (B+)

And there it goes again! It didn’t occur to me at all that Cady’s tribal issues and Walt’s case would converge, and what a way that it happened! I hadn’t remembered that we had met Eddie Harp before, but still, the way in which he was revealed to be the other doctor working in that questionable trailer that Henry took a patient to was incredible. Throughout this final season, we’re watching all of our characters take steps they haven’t before which they won’t be able to walk back. Last time, Vic was the one who shot Chance, and this time, it was Ferg who was holding the smoking gun when it looked like Eddie might have the upper hand and get away, leaving casualties in his wake. It’s nice to know that people with good hearts, like Henry, do prevail in some cases. Cady’s moral quagmire was an extremely intriguing one, since she was forced to protect someone she knew to be breaking the law but who was defying the wishes of the child’s parents. Handing them the medication with a note that he wasn’t actually allergic was powerful, and we’ll see what legal repercussions, if any, she faces for this. It’s a sign of this show’s ability to cover multiple plotlines that Jacob Nighthorse being arrested and placed in solitary confinement for his own protection comes at the bottom of my review. Walt and Nighthorse hating each other but still trying to defend each other’s character is mesmerizing, and I’m really not sure how it’s all going to play out in the final three episodes.
