So much left unresolved! Come on 2014.


All the unsolved murders of women in Juarez is a pretty fertile setting. They can go in so many directions. The lack of activity in these threads suggest the show isn't that popular, but hopefully NetFlix will pick it up and that will change. This seems like a made for NetFlix show. The pace is a bit slow to keep you motivated every week, but if you can blow out a season in a weekend, it will seem like a pretty wild ride.

I really liked the show, but this thread is kind of a mess because everyone watched the show at their own pace so it made it hard to participate.

That's not a bad thing, people are still watching it. But until a show becomes appointment viewing for enough people, these threads are hard to track.

Just finished Season 1 and while it was solid with some good/dark moments, I'm not sure I'm 100% down with watching Season 2. It just didn't leave me all that pumped up for the next season.

Please do as I remember very little on what happened towards the end of the season


this is the best i could find right now, a summary of each episode on wikipedia:

Ep 1

quote:

When the power is restored on the Bridge of the Americas, at the US-Mexican border, American Judge Lorraine Gates' body is found directly on the border line. Both El Paso Detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and Chihuahua Detective Marco Ruiz (Demián Bichir) arrive on the scene. Ruiz allows an ambulance with Charlotte Millwright (Annabeth Gish) and her husband (Robert R. Shafer), who is having a heart attack, to cross back into the States. When Gates' body is moved, it comes apart at the waist, and the coroner identifies the upper part of the body as Gates', but the lower part belongs to Mexican Cristina Fuentes. Ruiz matches her with a previous case wherein 23 dismembered bodies were found in a "death house". Steven Linder (Thomas M. Wright) "kidnaps" Eva Guerra (Sandra Echeverría) near a night club in Mexico and takes her to a remote mobile home in Texas, where he temporarily holds her. The police identify the license plate of the bridge drop car, leading them to reporter Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard). After Charlotte's husband dies, she goes through his personal effects at their ranch, finding a password-protected cell phone and a key. She asks a ranch hand (Alejandro Patino) about both the key and the phone. He doesn't know about the phone, but takes her to a remote cabin on the ranch where she finds a padlocked door in the cellar.


Ep 2

quote:

Marco reluctantly brings Sonya to the Mexican police headquarters to look into evidence concerning the dead Mexican girl and the 22 other bodies. Charlotte discovers a tunnel below the cabin on the ranch, and a lawyer visits her to tell her that her husband died with prior financial obligations. There is no sign at the mobile home of Eva Guerra, and Linder starts burning her belongings, only to quickly retrieve her ringing cell phone from the fire. Illegal immigrants stumble on contaminated water in the desert near the US border. Maria, the only one who didn't drink the poisoned water, reaches a road and is picked up by a passerby. Frye publishes a story about the double homicide on the bridge; he then receives a call that leads him to the dead Mexican immigrants.


Ep 3

quote:

The self-proclaimed killer of the two bridge people, the nine Mexicans in the desert, and the abductor of Maria, tells Frye he will kill Maria unless he gets $1,000,000 from four rich Americans, including Charlotte's deceased husband. Charlotte goes to the El Paso police station to answer questions, including ones from Marco. Later, his family visits with him at the station, and he introduces them to Sonya. After the funeral, Charlotte has a discussion with her deceased husband's "business partner". When Charlotte refuses to deal with this woman, there are severe repercussions. When Marco visits with Charlotte, seeking her help in clarifying the circumstances surrounding his permitting her and her dying husband through the closed off crime scene on the bridge, they end up being intimate. While investigating the dead immigrants' crime scene, Sonya notices Linder's trailer in the distance and goes over to investigate. Marco and Sonya bring him in for questioning, but release him after brief questioning. Frye goes to Mexico, with fellow reporter Adriana Perez, to talk to the people behind the Mexican immigrant racket. The unidentified killer, who has Maria, ties her to stakes in the ground in the desert, and sets up a web feed to Frye's newspaper.


Ep 4

quote:

Charlotte has now decided to open the tunnel between the ranch and Mexico, as the woman at the funeral demanded. Linder drops Eva off at a secluded house, telling her she will be safe there. The local Mexican drug lord, concerned about the beefed up border police security in the wake of Maria's kidnapping, uses the tunnel at Charlotte's ranch to bring ransom money from Mexico to Marco in El Paso, to save Maria. The FBI, involved because of the cross border link, takes the ransom money to the predetermined drop site. Sonya manages to identify where Maria is tied up in the hot desert, and with the help of her boss, rescues Maria in the nick of time. It's too late, though, to stop the money drop, and while Marco is tracking down the vanished FBI agent who has the money, he is ambushed by the killer.

Ep 5
quote:

Galvan rationalizes that, even though he has killed many people, he doesn't enjoy it. That separates him from the killer in the news. He then goes into the back room, and shoots Hector's cousin dead. Sonya shows up at Marco's house to say has intel on Agent Gedman. Gedman used to frequent Christina Fuentes on a weekly basis. During dinner with the family, she also tells Marco that Charlotte dropped his wallet off at the station. Later before bed, he puts his wallet on the bedside table, out of habit. Alma tells him to get out. Gina, booked on a shoplifting arrest, gets bailed out by her father. He won't let her stay with him, saying his girlfriend wouldn't like that. She says she will find her way home, only she goes to walk through the streets of Juárez. At the hospital, Maria is in and out of consciousness. Sonya wishes to question her, Frye wants to interview her, but the doctor tells them she is not ready. Hector startles Linder in his apartment, demanding to know where Eva is. They wrestle and Linder knocks him out. Suspicious of Linder, Marco knocks, seeking to ask him some questions, but Linder won't let him in. He then rolls Hector up in a blanket and tosses him out the window. Marco goes to question Frye and is able to steal his phone. Maria wakes and Marco tells her to not speak until given asylum. The killer phones Sonya to say he will be targeting institutions. She thinks of Gedman, whom the FBI has known about, as well as Christina's videos. At a coffee shop, Charlotte tells Marco about Graciella and the tunnel. He doesn't want to hear it. Gina is whisked away by a woman who shows her some pink crosses, and that "the Beast" killed all these girls, including her sister. This scares Gina in going home. Linder starts to bury Hector's body in the desert, when Galvan shows up to claim it. Sonya and Marco are given a file on Gedman, who was ordered to see psychologist Dr. Meadows. Sonya and Marco arrive at Meadow's house to find him with his throat slashed and a terrified Gina in a closet saying she has seen "the Beast".


Ep 6
quote:

Charlotte and Ray have sex and she leads him through the tunnel on the property. Galvan and his henchman drag Hector Calaca's dead body past them. Marco, Sonya and Wade inspect the deceased Dr. Meadow's home. He died from a Colombian necktie. Sonya tries to question the only witness, Meadow's daughter Gina, who just wants to be left alone. At the station, she shows her pictures of some of her father's patients, but she doesn't recognize anyone. Frye decides to go cold turkey and Adriana suggests going to Juárez to find a connection in the murders. In Juárez, Frye and Adriana find Calaca's body ominously displayed. After looking through Dr. Meadow's files, Marco confronts Wade about his time as his patient. Wade tells him about a case where a young girl was raped and murdered and her younger sister had to identify the body. They caught the murderer, Jim Dobbs, but only after Wade shot him in the head during the pursuit. Dobbs lived but has a serious brain injury. The victim's little sister was Sonya. Since then, Wade feels an overwhelming responsibility toward her. Graciella meets Charlotte, who says Ray is now in control. Alma has lunch with her male coworker and he tries to kiss her. A sketch artist tries to draw Gina's fleeting glimpses of the killer. Wade suggests lunch and, at a diner, Gina excuses herself and climbs through a bathroom window. Sonya senses this and chases after her. She hears a scream and finds Gina in a pool of blood. The killer followed her and stabbed her. The wound is too severe to save her. Before dying, she tells Sonya that she got the eyes of the killer just right in the sketch. Marco goes his home, and Alma tells him to gather his things and get out. Sonya calls to tell him about Gina. The FBI didn't know about her, only their people. Someone is watching them. Ray calls Timmy about the new setup and asks for some supplies. Timmy is shown to be working with the ATF. Marco returns the unused ransom to Galvan, which was to be used to save the girl in the desert. He tells Galvan it was the right thing to do. Galvan reveals Marco's father's involvement in the drug trade. That life isn't for Marco, who refuses money offered him. Sonya visits Jim Dobbs in prison. His only means of communication is to draw pictures of a girl with blonde hair and a black mask covering her face.


Ep 7
quote:

As part of the deal to unload the guns in the tunnel, Ray must perform oral sex on Graciella. Alma kicks Marco out of the house, not believing he didn't sleep with Sonya. She then goes to meet her new boyfriend at a hotel. Sonya traces the murderer's car to Jack Childress, who has a lot of guns in his house. Linder meets a woman in Juárez who gives him a mission. He must take her daughter Sara to Reverend Bob's ranch, only Sara is also Fausto Galvan's girlfriend. Wade and Cooper find Childress's car abandoned near a trailer park. Sonya, Marco, and Deputy Stokes join in the search. Stokes finds a bone saw as a neighbor says he thinks Childress is nearby. The man arrives and a shoot-out begins. Knowing his cell number, Sonya calls Childress and she learns he is right behind her. They both fire and she gets shot in her vest-covered chest. At the station, Marco thinks Childress is the killer. Sonya thinks the killer is more patient and calculating. Childress says he was only hired to kill "the Mexican".


Ep 8
quote:

In a flashback, Frye and Santi Jr. are out partying. They want to search for drugs, but Frye has lost his pants which has his passport. Santi Jr. goes off alone. In the present, Lt. Wade and Sonya question Jack Childress, who had shot her. He claims to not know about any dead women. Wade and the others are convinced he is the Bridge Butcher. Sonya doubts this. She looks for names connected to him. David Tate's is one of them. Marco says he worked with Tate on a task force, but he is dead now, committed suicide after his family was killed in a car wreck. Charlotte arrives home to find Timmy lounging by the pool. Ray offered to let him stay at the ranch. Ray delivers guns to Graciella, who pays him but later finds transmitters in the weapons. Sonya visits Tate's sister, who tells her his wife was having an affair with a Juárez man. She was leaving Tate and taking his son with her, only they were killed in Juárez on her way to see the man. Wade and Cooper find a body on Childress's property with a license identifying Ken Hastings. Alma and her new boyfriend attend a gala. Adriana arrives with Santi Jr. At the station, Sonya pulls up Hastings's driver's license and the picture is of Alma's boyfriend. Marco knows him as David Tate. At the club, Alma confesses to Tate that she is pregnant. He seems fine with the news. He wants to take her home, and she agrees to meet outside in five minutes. He goes to the restroom where he sees Santi Jr. He pulls out a knife and slits Santi Jr.'s throat, for he was the driver that caused the accident that killed Tate's family. Before Tate leaves, he leaves his bloody handprint for the police to find. Sonya, Marco and Lt. Wade arrive on the scene to find a bead on the body, just like at the other crime scenes. Marco recognizes it being from a necklace that belonged to a woman with whom he was having an affair. Marco tells Sonya that he had sex with Jill Tate. Alma rides away with David.

Ep 9
quote:

We see Tate reliving when he arrived at the accident that claimed his family. At the Santi Jr. crime scene, Marco tells her that he was a suspect in the Tate accident. She asks if Tate knew about the affair but Marco says no. She ponders if perhaps he didn't know back then, but does now. In the barn, Charlotte is attacked by Graciella and her henchman looking for Ray. Cesar arrives and shoots the henchman. Graciella is unmoved, threatening Cesar. Charlotte kills her with a pitchfork. Gus meets Zima, who he has been texting for weeks. However, she says they haven't communicated since she moved away, months ago. He has been getting texts from her old phone. Marco tells Sonya about Tate, who was working the lost girls of Juárez case until it was shut down. Tate's demeanor changed after the accident. His phone rings, showing Alma's number. Tate is on the other end and taunts him. Linder confesses to Reverend Bob about killing Hector. He also tells Eva, who is relieved at the news. Gus comes home and is asked about "Ken Hastings", whom he says works at the school with Alma and has been in the house. Marco and Sonya are called to Hastings's apartment, where surveillance pictures of Marco are found, as well as one of a cabin in the desert. The cabin is where Tate had taken Alma and the girls. He hands her a live grenade and locks them in the cabin. Gus tells Marco about the texts, and they are able to dupe Tate into a meeting. He arrives but leaves a note for Tate with coordinates to the cabin. Marco and Wade arrive at the cabin to save everyone. Marco calls Sonya to tell her to get Gus to a safe house. As they are driving, Tate slams into Sonya's car and drags Gus to his. She blacks out after getting his plate number.


Ep 10
quote:

Gus pleads with Tate from the backseat of his car, as emergency workers arrive to check on Sonya. She tells Wade the plate number of Tate's car. Frye is shamed that he was Tate's target and tells Adriana about the night Santi Jr. hit the car carrying Tate's wife and son. Santi Sr. gave Frye a job in order to keep him quiet. Marco tells Alma that she and the girls are being taken to a safe house. He adds that the affair with Tate's wife happened before meeting her. She doesn't care. Adriana attends an AA meeting with Frye. Alone outside, he is abducted by Tate. At the courthouse. Charlotte learns that she only got the ranch in her husband's will. Ray tells her they still have the tunnel and plenty to smuggle. Gus wakes up in a barrel that begins to fill with liquid. After Tate's car is found at a cemetery, Marco and Sonya get clues about Tate's uncle and visit his house. Tate calls Marco, telling him to leave Sonya and meet him. Charlotte and Ray learn Timmy is working for the ATF. She tells Ray to kill him, but she ends up being the one to shoot him. Marco and Tate discuss having sex with each other's wives. Marco pleads Gus's innocence and tries to strangle Tate, but cannot. He is told to ditch his phone as Tate drives on.


Ep 11
quote:

Ray drags Timmy's decomposing body through the tunnel and finds numerous dead bodies, shot in the midst of a card game. With one of the corpse's guns, he exchanges fire with a stranger and kills him. David Tate and Marco arrive at the Juárez/El Paso border. Tate tells Marco that his wife's death was instant but his son managed to live for ten minutes after the crash. He hoped that his son died quietly, but he thinks that Caleb actually suffered. Tate pulls in the middle of the bridge, near where his wife and son died. Tate, wired with explosives, and Marco exit the car. Tate shuts off all the lights, except theirs and orders Marco to open the trunk. Inside is Daniel Frye, alive and terrified. Wade arrives to find the stand-off. Tate wants Marco to shoot Frye and does it himself, when Marco balks. Sonya and Cooper find Gus in the barrel at Ray's uncle's house. She goes to the bridge to beg Marco not to shoot Tate, who reveals that Gus is dead. She must wound Marco by shooting him as Tate is taken into custody. Marco is furious with her for stopping him but is now lost without his son. Adriana checks on Frye in his hospital room. The doctor tells her he has massive head and spinal injuries.


Ep 12
quote:

Linder shows up at Reverend Bob's ranch, ready to marry Eva, only to be told she isn't there. Eva leaves her factory job in Juárez, misses the bus home, and must take an offered ride in a car with Texas plates. Sonya is distraught when a mechanic tells her the Bronco, her sister's car, is a total loss. She visits Marco, who is in a disheveled state and doesn't care much about anything, including her. Charlotte meets Fausto Galvan at a carnival and he suggests teaming up. Linder speaks with Sonya about his "bride" Eva. He tells her he was told Eva had been gone for three days. In Juárez, Eva is taken to a jail cell by a cop and locked up. Sonya helps an angry and sad Marco cope. Linder walks the streets of Juárez with Eva's picture. A woman tells him where he can look for the girl. The cop takes Eva, drugged and beaten, to a large estate. Wade suggests to Marco that perhaps testifying against Tate might bring peace. At the courthouse, Tate smiles and nods at Marco. Celia later informs Marco that other women and girls have been trafficked through the department. Linder and other men and women dig in a field of pink crosses, which signify the lost girls of Juárez. There are many more left to be found.


Ep 13
quote:

The cop, with an injured Eva in the car, meets a man who hands him a gun and tells him to get rid of her. The cop decides against it. Sonya asks Wade if he is retiring. He has the paperwork, but has not filled it out yet. She asks to work on the Dead Girls of Juárez case. Charlotte, Ray and Cesar meet with lawyer Monte about laundering the tunnel money. She asks advice for the dinner with Fausto Galvan. Sonya and Celia find footage of the cop with Eva. Marco finds and beats the cop until he reveals Eva's location. Sonya and Marco find Eva in a monastery and help her back to the States. A strange man tells Charlotte that he knows all about her and that she should keep her meeting with Galvan. Sonya sympathizes with Marco, and she knows he won't seek revenge. Marco visits Galvan to ask a favor. He wants Galvan to get him to David Tate so he can kill him himself.

Glad new season started. I like the slow pace of the show and am intrigued by Franke Potente's character. Have always enjoyed it and Bichir & Kruger leads.

I like the show a lot.I have a hard time following some of the plot - it's complicated and a lot of the scenes are dark. Was it the guy with the "tools" dead in the car and the lady with him under the water, presumably dealt with by the real estate guy?

Yes, it was the guy with the "tools" that was dead in the car.

And yes, the lady with him was the one washing herself at the end. But no, she is the one presumed to kill her partner and the real estate guy. She was the one holding the bloody knife dripping on Lyle Lovett's hat at the beginning.
