Hello everyone, this is Matthew Hemenway. In this video, I will be reviewing and analyzing Bosch Season 5. I have enjoyed watching this series so far. It does an excellent job of having the viewer see the perspectives of being a detective and what police officers must put up with at times. I will let you know my rating at the end of this video.
The three storylines in this season are the Ha beaus Corpus hearing that Preston Borders is claiming by hiring the attorney Cronin and Cronin, the pill mill, and the Haitian involvement in crime in Los Angeles. I will go through these storylines as I will talk about them in this video.
The Ha beaus Corpus hearing is about Preston Borders murdering a girl who he knew when he dated her at the recording studio. Preston wanted to be a rock star and he is looking to become famous. As Harry Bosch tells Maddie, he was a trust fund baby. Maddie says he looks like a creep.
Once I saw Preston Borders in this season, I thought he looked like a creep too. He is a scum bag, and we all know that at times scum bags like to get away with something hideous. In the flashbacks, the victim was murdered and raped. It was a violation to say the least. I could not imagine that happening. What if it happened to a dear friend that I cared about and thought about as my sister even if I never had a sister, but our relationship was that close. It would hit at home and have you realized how dear life is. It is what happened to the sister of the victim and has her realize. She asked Bosch, "Did you frame Preston Borders”. Bosch tells her he did not.
There is one in the DA office, an ex-cop who is looking for payback against Bosch. She wants it and does not care how she will get it if she gets it. The name of this person is Christina Henry. She wants Bosch to say the least. She wants to ruin his career and do whatever it takes to do it. She wants to believe he is a rogue police officer(cop) and thinks that he planted the pendant to frame Preston Borders. She claims that the tissue was found as the convicted rapist who confessed to the crime. It was bogus as set up by Cronin and Cronin to make money as there are multiple players involved in this crime.
Bosch must hire Honey Chandler. At first to the viewer, in the 4 seasons before, it looks like she is out for her career. As the viewer finds out, there is more to meet the eye to Honey Chandler than the viewer thinks. This is Honey Chandler’s philosophy as that everyone deserves their day in court. She is good and, like Bosch, will do whatever it takes to get the job done.
The pill mill is done by this rogue group of criminals. One of them used to work for the CIA and DEA agent told Grace Billets later in the season that his interests have peaked. The reason is Fentanyl. As we all know as Jimmy Robertson AKA Santiago said, Fentanyl is fast, easy, and cheap. One of the police officers (cops) that smelled it passed out. She was lucky that it did not kill her. This pill mill was also helping to deal out OxyContin. As I told you in my Dope Sick series reviews, what happened in the pharmacy at the beginning of the season was common.
The season starts off with a murder. The pharmacy was dealing with a narcotic and that narcotic was OxyContin. The father in this story who is Latino got killed and his son went running. As was shown in the Dope Sick series, pharmacies were robbed to get OxyContin. Some got it to snort up their nose and others got like in this season of Bosch shows to sell it on the Illegal Market. They wanted to make bigger bucks. Addicts would either turn to Heroin or Fentanyl.
Bosch went undercover to find the ones involved in the pharmacy murder and get closer to the Fentanyl and OxyContin. It needed to be stopped. He will meet up with Elizabeth Clayton who will have a role in Season 6 as well.
Jerry Edgar had a confidential informant who was murdered by a Haitian assassin. There is a Haitian crime organization going around Los Angeles. There are three police officers (cops) who are corrupt and involved in this Haitian crime organization who are involved in illegal gun sales. Jerry will not let this go as he has a personal reason for this. What is his reason?
As not to be revealed anymore, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of this season.
I give Bosch Season 5, a 10 out 10. I thought it was well done. I thought it did an excellent job of showing the corruption and what people are willing to do. It also showed the good and toughness that people do have. It showed how dangerous Narcotics are and are not to be messed with.
Please be prepared for a live video coming up on June 9, 2022, at 8:30 PM EDT as I will review Ms. Marvel Season 1 Episode 1 in that video. The review will be live and not prerecorded.
