[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]
Coroner kicks off a two-parter Thursday night with “True Crime.” Jenny and Eli — who’s so remarkably Zen and easygoing throughout to the point that Jenny straight asks him if he was bodysnatched — are called to the beach to investigate a man who appears to have jumped to his death.
As they dig into the case, they learn the victim had a history with the location, but that doesn’t make the cause of death any clearer.
McAvoy is drinking the Kool-Aid of Cassidy’s wellness organization, which puts him at odds with both Jenny and Malik. Jenny spends some time with Peggy that leaves her unsettled about her memories.
Ross has an awkward encounter with Alphonse that sends him home to seek counsel with Gordon on an appropriate way to respond. He can’t linger too long, though, as his app takes off and he redirects his angst into cooking.
The titular “true crime” aspect of the episode surfaces as the team realizes that a podcast from the POV of a hate crime victim may or may impact their case and others.
Liz Farrer directs a script by JP Larocque.
