The first day of questioning is underway, and nothing gives me more pleasure than watching Angelo get under the skin of Colby.
Colby thinks he’s in control and theorizes about the scene’s second car to throw Angelo off the scent, but Angelo brings up the medical records of Colby.
They were in the original files or something, but it comes as a surprise to Colby, who is also a cop, and if we remember him harking last week — he knows what to expect, he’s on the inside … bla Bla bla bla.
Angelo is talking for Colby ‘s upbringing and growing up with an abusive step-father who landed him a couple of times in the hospital.
It’s hard to say whether Colby, the professional cop, is playing the emotional card or fell for it. Colby remarks that the interview was “harder” than he planned, and he was “triggered” by traumatic memories of childhood.
“If he is looking for a motive I have hundreds,” he says to Bella.
But Colby maintains he ‘s okay.
Then the mood changes and Colby purges himself in the shower of his grievous crime, and it becomes very apparent that he is not exceptional.
I’m not a fan of Colby, and I was a little surprised that he didn’t have a good old cry and I guess that either he can’t weep on cue or the tattoos were already carefully drawn from another scene and the writers decided to get the most out of them.
Dean is next.
He breezes unexpectedly because “this is not the first cop we’ve been lying to.”
Angelo butters Dean up and remarks the stories of Dean and Colby are remarkably similar to their original statements, and their great memories are complimentary.
Dean is compliant, and we hear that the police shortened the time of death to three months.
Any news at this point on the alleged signs of Dean being fueled by drugs.
Dean says that Colby will be “gutted” before he dies, and Angelo believes that Ross won’t rot in prison.
As Dean leaves, Angelo ruffles his feathers and asks Dean to call him to get Colby.
Angelo wants to see Bella come into the quest. She is now so stressed that she can not eat, and the news weakens.
“I ‘m going to screw this up,” she says.
We know pretty much what’s going on due to every promo, so I’m not going to ruin everything.
In the meantime, Willow, who’s still caught up in this whole thing about murder, is very hungover and running late for gym practice. What a formidable combo.
This doesn’t please Jasmine, who owns the gym and is suddenly sooo virtuous even though Jas has been AWOL for months, and reminds Willow who’s boss.
Willow once again tests Jasmine’s composure and leaves her gym host to check-in at Colby.
Luckily their roomie Irene puts Jas in her place and reminds Jas that no matter what, Willow was there for her, and probably had an excellent reason to leave early.
Jas also thinks by showing her the “fantasy” family picture file; she has destroyed her success with Tori.
