Will Trent - Two Hundred Dollars and a Bus Pass

Both A and B mysteries provide plenty of entertainment for our detectives in "Two Hundred Dollars and a Buss Pass." Investigating the murder of a victim who reminds himself of his own experiences, Will (Ramón Rodríguez) uncovers a connection between a campus drug study and the murder. In the B-story, Angie (Savannah Hutson) and Ormewood (Jake McLaughlin) investigate the murder of a magician at a retirement community (where he and his accomplice were fleecing the tenants out of thousands of dollars). Both cases involve our detectives dealing with uncooperative groups of college kids or seniors before getting to the truth.

In terms of odd moments, Will's case includes him apprehending a suspect in a way that looks more violent than it was (after the suspect had a drug-related seizure). The show begins to discuss this but quickly moves on, making me wonder if there was a rewrite to the episode simply dumped the plotline or if something will be followed up on in a later episode. And as was hinted at previously, we see the return of Dr. Farhad Pournazeri (Kayvon Esmaili) who has some romantic interest in a flustered Faith (Iantha Richardson).
