THE ALIENIST: Episode 9: Requiem

Running  down a clue
Not sure but you'll either scream or groan at the end of this episode because it get dark.

While Kreizler mourns and withdraws from the investigation, the rest press on. Racing against time to find their suspect they struggle to find a way to be certain they are.

The penultimate episode is a nail biter from start to finish. If you've been watching from the start you will be on the edge of your seat and talking to the TV at every turn. Nothing is being held back the series is now racing to a conclusion. The question is who will be alive when it all ends.

At this point there is nothing left to say other than everything that has gone before is now paying off big time and I can't wait to see next weeks episode.

Frankly as much as I love the book this series which is based on it has become it' own thing. Yes I know the book, but everyone involved with this series has done a sterling job and made something that stands on it's own feet. I've long ago stopped comparing the book to the series and consider both equally valid telling of the tale.

I am sorry that the series ends next week, but I'll soldier on in the hope that we get ANGEL OF DARKNESS next year.

If you haven't been watching the series I have to ask why the hell not- go binge it so you can join everyone as it all comes to a conclusion next Monday.
