So here are my convoluted thoughts on this two parter....
So. I still totally don’t think the bomber is after is old ex-wife.
On the rewatch….it starts with him planting a bomb in the guitar and then robbing that store. I believe as a ploy to get major crimes to respond. Clearly they didn’t.
Perhaps he planted more bombs and more crimes that we haven’t seen yet…
He stages the murder to get major crimes unit to finally respond. he plants the bomb into an item that would be booked into evidence, however the radios caused a premature detonation.
Then the bike…
The bike does get booked into evidence.
So now we’re too the grave site. If his ex wife was the target…there would be no reasonable reason for him to photograph the members of the unit respond to the scene. Why would he document, with visual proof, who responded to the scene? hmmm.
Then we have the storage unit. Several pictures and locations of mundane items presumably to be used as bombs. I believe these are other attempts to get a bomb into evidence.
We also have the reappearance of Stroh. (super angry face, duff i swear to god…) And the implication that he is going through his past (if it really is stroh) to remove his ties. get rid of anyone connected to him.
My thoughts, based on what we have so far:
I believe (yes I’m going back to the stroh theory) stroh is using this guy’s grudge against his ex wife as a way to get to major crimes and his evidence from the closer days.
Blowing up the team, and then getting a bomb into evidence to blow up his remaining evidence…. effectively ending any easy prosecution of stroh.
And we know from Stroh’s MO that he always has a second person do the dirty.
so. that is my prediction of the season end.
