The final two acts of the season finale track the aftermath. Richmond becomes mayor and moves ahead with the backroom deal that Jamie set up. Rosie’s parents, Stan and Mitch, move into a new house to make a fresh start. Linden and Holder arrive at Stan and Mitch’s house to inform them that they found the murderer. However, they find Terry (Mitch’s sister, who took care of the kids after Mitch disappeared) in the garage, espy a broken taillight on her car, and deduce that she was at the scene of the murder based on accounts that a car with a broken taillight had left the scene. Mitch and Stan return, and that’s when Terry confesses.
This is what happened: Terry was having an affair with Michael Aames. Michael Aames was behind the land development deal at the heart of Jamie’s backroom dealing. (Michael is also Jasper’s Dad, Rosie’s ex-boyfriend who was the very first suspect in the murder of Rosie). Rosie was in the trunk of Jamie’s car. Jamie and Michael got into an argument about hiding Rosie’s body. Michael says he wants nothing to do with it, says he’s calling off his affair with Terry (who was in a parked car at the scene), and that Jamie had gone too far. Because Jamie and Michael were too chickensh*t to do anything about it, Terry gets out of her car, disengages the park break on the car with Rosie in the trunk, and pushes it into the water, finally killing Rosie.
The catch? She didn’t know that the girl in the trunk was still alive (you can hear her screaming “Help!” as the car sinks into the water) and she also didn’t know that the girl was her niece, Rosie.
Holder and Linden handcuff Terry, a weeping Terri hugs her sister, Mitch, sobbing, “I didn’t know it was Rosie,” and Mitch reluctantly returns the hug.
Murder solved, case closed. The end. Also, BOOOOOO!
