Chase said, “Hutchins’ case was the first I ever tried in the Bay City’s DA’s office. First one I ever lost, too. I blamed myself. I was too young, too green, too naïve. I actually thought facts and evidence mattered. I didn’t think Carl’s string-pulling could extend into a court of law. Boy, did I learn better.”
“We all do with a man like Carl, sooner or later.”
“I told myself I’d do better next time. I was certain there would be a next time.”
“And you weren’t wrong,” Jamie agreed.
“You should have seen how I prepared my next case against him. I was obsessed. I was sure I’d crossed every T, dotted every I and foreseen every eventuality. I still lost. He still went free. Time after time after time, I had the chance to put away a man who’d ruined literally thousands of lives. And time after time after time, he wriggled away. Which meant that every subsequent crime he committed was partially my fault. Even now. I had him. I had him, Jamie, dead to rights. He broke the law. He admitted it. And, yet again, he managed to escape justice.”
“So this is a vendetta?”
“And you want me to help you?"
Jamie gives Chase an answer about pressing charges against Carl and later makes a surprising connection, Iris offers Sarah an - unsolicited - opinion about child-raising, Cass goes against Frankie, and Marley makes a surprising confession to Dennis.
