Cassie goes to make Hackett tea later that night when she can tell he is exhausted about the case. She steps into her kitchen as pink carnation petals fall all over and she holds a piece of paper in her hands. It is a ticket. The next morning, Hackett and Asante get to work, wondering what it may mean.
Meanwhile, Cassie meets with her friend Melinda about what has happened. She tells her that she is stuck in her death, experiencing it over and over again. The ring has kept her here, but not in a good way because Melinda wants her to come back. Cassie tells her that she isn’t at peace and suggests the only way to make this better is to take the ring off. Melinda is upset but agrees. Cassie says she’ll go back to make sure it works.
Don’t Mess With a Woman…
The ticket links them to a possible new lead, a man named Wayne Modell who they arrest. He was the person who delivered the flowers to Shelly’s gym. He tells them that he wasn’t the one who bought the flowers, delivered them for the woman who bought them. A redhead. Ooh, what a switch. A female serial killer is always interesting. Lila, the woman we met earlier may be our killer.
She was once engaged to be married and pink carnations were a big part of it. Ashley, her fiance left her for another woman. They worry that Ashley and his new wife are the next on the list.
At Cassie’s house, she has a vision of drowning in a bathtub by Lila. This sends Hackett and Asante into high gear; it means that Lila is already at Ashley’s house and it might be too late.
Hackett and Asante arrive at Ashley’s house to arguing coming from upstairs. It is Lila’s voice we hear. Hackett comes into the room and pulls his gun, but he is forced to drop his weapon as Lila has a gun pointed at her head. He chooses to use his words for the time being. Where is Asante? Ashley is injured pretty badly, but alive. Lila is talking, ranting about men who don’t want to be married.
Asante comes through the window with just enough time to injure Lila as she is about to pull the trigger. Everyone gets to live.
Meanwhile, Cassie and Brian head to the accident site and she’s so happy to see that it worked. Cassie admits that she notices Brian has been off and she wants him to get checked out. She needs him, she tells him. He agrees to get checked out.
The team celebrates their win at the precinct, then at the bar where Cassie works. Cassie and Asante bond, which is nice to see. Much to her surprise as she cleans up, she notices Jenna, the finance outside. She thanks her for her help and the episode ends.
I’m just not impressed. The show is easy enough to follow along with, and I guess for the casual TV watcher, might be enough. The visions are sometimes cool or creepy, but they feel predictable and forced at times. There is just something that is missing from this show and wish there was something more. The emotion falls flat, I suppose.
Even if the show has an awesome next few episodes, I don’t think it’ll be enough. There just isn’t enough for me to be invested or care enough about the characters. There are gaps between storylines, which are frustrating to me as a viewer.
Overall, I just don’t think the show has the chance to be renewed.
The InBetween airs on NBC, Wednesdays at 10 pm.
