What I’m Watching: Suspicion

Suspicion: Season 1, Episode 7 “Questions of Trust” (B)

This episode provided a good deal of information, with a shocker of an ending that will surely lead to an eventful finale. We got to see the elusive Eric Kresswell, whose involvement in all of this became clear during Catherine’s disaster of an interview with Nancy Harper, in which she was painted as a soulless defender of corporate interests. That explains the political heat that Catherine is facing, though Copeland is the one who is actively engaged in trying to take out any problematic elements. Because there’s always another layer of deception, Sean drew Copeland’s men to the warehouse only to kill them and then get a room in the very hotel where Copeland was staying and grab him. Natalie shooting him was quite a surprise since she seemed to be almost as innocent as Aadesh in all of this, but apparently that’s not the case, unless she’s going to try and claim that she panicked and that’s why she shot him. The way she was stroking Sean’s arm when he was asking for his key was a level of acting we hadn’t seen before, suggesting there’s more she’s hiding. Though they did manage to get Cresswell in safely for questioning, Vanessa and Scott are not doing a spectacular job of keeping on top of their suspects, allowing a van that could have been filled with explosives to pull up right outside FBI headquarters without thinking that maybe it was being driven by someone else. I am intrigued to see how things play out in the finale and whether it will be a closed loop or leave things open for a second season.
