Will Trent - Manhunt

"Manhunt" offers the flipside of an episode we got earlier in the season with this time Faith (Iantha Richardson) goes missing after being kidnapped by a convicted cop killer (Vince Swann) at the courthouse. With the local cops out for blood, and all too willing to believe the corrupt cop (Isaiah Stratton) that framed him, Faith suddenly becomes his accomplice rather than hostage. While Will (Ramón Rodríguez) is involved in the case, the episode highlights his partner in a larger role as she even manages to stop the killer cop on her own.

The episode's B-story brings back the subject of Angie's (Savannah Hutson) past when a chance encounter with the former foster father (French Stewart) who raped her as a teenager throws her for a loop. With the help of her partner, who like everyone else is working Faith's disappearance, Angie has the man brought into questioning without offering any Ormewood (Jake McLaughlin) any details. The confrontation doesn't go as expected with the man being contrite and conciliatory, but as he leaves Angie gets a look at his girlfriend... and her teenage daughter. No doubt, this will continue to play a large role in the series going forward and her choosing to neither tell her partner nor her boyfriend about her encounter and suspicions foreshadows a possible dark turn for the detective.
