The “Motive” Season 2 Premiere Episode 1 “Raw Deal” aired on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 on ABC. Vancouver detective Angelika Flynn (Kristin Lehman) returns to finding out the “why” rather than the “who” in every crime that comes her way. Unfortunately, her past, complicated love life has finally caught up with her as she crosses paths again with Sergeant Mark Cross (Warren Christie.) Read on to find out more about MNG’s recap of the “Motive” Season 2 Premiere Episode 1 “Raw Deal,” which features a blast from Angie’s past.
“Motive” Season 2 Premiere Episode 1 “Raw Deal” is directed by David Frazee and written by Dennis Heaton. The Season 2 of “Motive” first premiered on its original Canadian network, CTV on March 6, 2014. ABC had acquired the rights for the show for the second time after the successful run of Season 1 in 2013. The network had scheduled its Season 2 airing on Wednesday, May 21, 2014.
“Raw Deal” began with the case of the suicide victim Kevin Carpenter, a well-off world traveler who recently came back to town. The man was found in a tub with two wrist wounds and a suicide letter. Several pills were also found near the area. Ian Weaver, who works as a professional photographer, is the one who killed his old friend, but WHY?
Detective Angie continued her investigation about the case. She later found out that the victim was looking for Ian’s fiancé Robin before dying. They had been in a previous relationship and shared a six year-old son. He had wanted to come clean over his shared secret with Ian.
Her team also acquired the information about deceased David Chissolm, Robin’s father. David came from a devastating car crash before his supposed suicide. Angie and her team finally pieced their connections. They learned that the two had previously tried to make Chissolm’s death a suicide. Ian, on the other hand, wanted to bury his dark little secret along with the death of Kevin.
Meanwhile, Angie will be out of focus due to the unexpected arrival of her former lover, Mark Cross. He had an impeccable sense of bad timing. He had been tasked to become Angie’s superior at the Metro Police department, replacing the former commander, Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross). Bloom was promoted to a much higher position as Superintendent of Investigation.
