“Gracepoint” Season 1 Episode 9 will air on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on FOX. The show returns from its hiatus and detectives Ellie Miller and Alex Carver will be racing against the clock. Before we get into the details, let’s check back to what happened in the last episode as a refresher.
In Episode 8 (air date: Nov. 20, 2014), Tom (Jack Irvine) finally turned up. He was not abducted, but he hurt himself while trying to snoop around Lars Pierson’s (Brendan Fletcher) property. He thought Pierson was responsible for the death of his best friend as he found this out while rummaging through his mother’s work stuff. Tom only wanted the case to be solved, more so because, he wanted his mother, Detective Miller (Anna Gunn), home more often.
Meanwhile, Detective Carver dug deeper into the background of the pastor, Paul Coates (Kevin Rankin), based on a tip from Danny’s father, Mark (Michael Pena). He told the police that the pastor was in a Narcotics Anonymous group. Paul insisted that he’s been sober for three years. He challenged Carver into solving the case as it looked like the locals were losing hope and confidence with the police.
The Solano tried to spend the day as a family for the first time. It was since the death of Danny, they laughed and had fun together. Beth (Virginia Krull) decided she was going to keep the baby, which was pleasant news to her husband and daughter.
The police also took Susan Wright (Jacki Weaver) into custody after having learned that she had Danny’s missing skateboard all along. The editor from the Gracepoint Journal has also uncovered damning information about her. She refused to be interrogated, though, until she knows her pet dog is okay.
Carver and Ellie were back at the site where they found Danny’s prints to check for more leads and clues, when they encountered a suspicious figure. They chased after this but was stopped on their tracks when Carver fell to the ground clutching his heart.

After last episode’s incident, Carver’s boss now know he has a heart condition. Thus, he will be asked to give up the case. If he is not able to solve the murder in 24 hours, then this will be removed from his jurisdiction. So there is tremendous pressure on Carver to find the killer of Danny Solano.
Meanwhile, the investigation about Susan Wright finally brings to light a deep secret that will surprise everyone, and Beth is back to seeking out the pastor for advice about a matter that’s bothering her.
