THE ALIENIST: Episode 8: Psychopathia Sexualis

The team locks in a suspect as Connor takes steps to permanently stop the investigation with dire results.

In what might be the shortest episode of the series, sans commercials, it's all plot as the the investigators follow their respective leads that all lead back to the same suspect. Clearly they now know who the killer is. 

What makes the episode one of the most intense are the events in the second half which puts the lives of everyone in danger as Connor and his goon squad take drastic steps to prevent the alienist from solving the crime.  Clearly the forces of law and order are just as bad if not worse than the serial killers of old New York.

I audibly gasp "not now!" at the fade out because I couldn't believe that were ending it there.

I can't believe there are only two episodes left. I'm desperate to see how it all ends- even though having read the book I know how it all ends.

Any one know if they've greenlit the sequel Angel of Darkness?
