The tension is building in episode 5, and all the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit into place. There are some clever moves by Mo as he cements his place as one of the smartest characters the Bosch universe has ever seen. He is also getting more involved in the action, which is a positive for the show.
This episode has a very good build up, and it ends on a fantastic cliffhanger. There is also the return of Jazz music in this episode, which has been missing in season 2, as things have been so frantic. But it’s a nice reminder that this show is essentially a modern take on the classic noir detective movies of days gone by. There’s also a stunning view of Los Angeles at night towards the end of the episode, which sets off the atmosphere so well.
You can look forward to a full season review when this show ends!
