I am intrigued by the paths, but it is obvious that the funeral ahead may be something she planned and that is not really dead.
The focus ended up on Oliver, Connor, Asher and Michaela, even though Gabriel had problems with Frank and was pushed aside. By getting students to graduate, the series does something good, but it shows that Asher made a deal with the FBI because of threats to his mother and Chloe.
With everyone desperate, and even though Oliver took the harpoon on Asher’s head, it was not he who killed the boy, who appears beaten up in Gabriel’s apartment after looking for Bonnie. The episode ends with Connor and Michaela being arrested, and the rest of us already know, as Michaela refuses to speak and Connor is sick in the other room, while Oliver “takes over” the murder.
