  • Will Frank Kill the Nightingale?

    Will Frank Kill the Nightingale? In this episode of Frequency, "Negative Copy," Frank's plans to kill Joe Hurley hit several snags (and he begins to question if he should follow through), Raimy faces the consequences for her actions and a decision by Frank changes the course of Raimy's life once again.

    Raimy gets the satisfaction of shooting and killing the Nightingale Killer, convinced that there will be no repercussions since Frank murders Joe Hurley in 1996. But Frank runs into a bit of trouble when his car gets sideswiped by a drunk driver, and Hurley is able to escape from the trunk.

    Repercussions for Raimy, and Frank Confides in Julie

    While every cop in the city, including Satch, thinks Raimy is a hero, she's still accountable for dispensing vigilante justice. Internal Affairs is going to conduct an investigation, and Satch takes her badge until the issue is resolved.

    Frank arrives home with a smashed car, bleeding from his forehead. This prompts Julie to ask some que...

    Frank and Raimy Search for a Mystery Woman

    On this episode of Frequency, "Interference," as Raimy and Frank look into Larissa Abbott's past, they uncover more clues that could lead to the Nightingale. Frank and Julie don't know how to move forward.

    Satch and Raimy receive DNA confirmation that Larissa Abbott was the Nightingale's first victim. They wonder what the connection between Larissa and the killer was. Her brother threw away his sister's stuff in 2001 which leads Raimy to ask Frank to try and take a look back in 1996. The only problem is her family doesn't know she's dead yet and won't for another five years. Raimy warns her dad he can't say anything. Their best bet is for her to work the leads in 2016 so they don't change the course of history. If Raimy can find the Nightingale, he'll never see Frank coming.

    The Trouble with Angels

    Frank goes to see Larissa's family, and goes through her bedroom. He spots a chest and inside there's a secret compartment where Larissa hid ...

    Frank's Undercover Life Comes Back to Haunt Him

    On this episode of Frequency, "Break, Break, Break," a woman from Frank's past further fractures his relationship with Julie while Satch, hit hard by the death of Amanda Baldwin, begins to question his life choices and Raimy discovers a new lead that sheds a whole new light on the Nightingale's motives.

    Raimy is given some bad news by Stan Moreno. Satch has decided to retire, and Moreno will be looking after the Nightingale task force until a replacement is found. This means that Raimy will be reporting directly to the dirty cop.

    Frank and Satch Make Life-Changing Decisions

    Back in 1996, Satch's career is on the fast track. He's high off the prevented abduction of Amanda Baldwin, and he's about to be promoted to sergeant. He's also got a loving wife and two kids at home.

    Frank gets a break in the Nightingale case. The Crime Scene Unit (CSU) managed to pull a VIN number off the burned engine block of the Nightingale's truck. It's registe...

    Meh. This one didn't quite work for me.

    After watching Frequency Season 1 Episode 7, I've realized what really worked in the early episodes has gone by the wayside.

    Instead, we're stuck with relationship drama and dour-faced Raimy the crime-solver. 

    Look, I'm not going say I expect Frequency to be rainbows and unicorns all the time. The day-to-day subject matter is unpleasant.

    On both sides of the timeline, father and daughter are trying to solve the crime of a serial killer who will, in only weeks, take the life of their wife and mother. It's hard to take a break and let loose.

    Then there's Satch, the partner on both ends. On one side, he's holding the world against dear old dad because...issues. In the present, he's holding the world against himself because his happiness has flown the coop, he's watching his former friend's daughter get caught in the same rut as her father and to top it all off, he thinks he's a terri...

    On this episode of Frequency, "Deviation," Frank is determined to save the Nightingale's next victim and has a run-in with the killer himself, Raimy and Daniel continue to cross paths and Raimy seeks help from a prison inmate whose crazy predictions seem to come true.

    In 1996, a couple of kids discover a burnt out truck and the remains of a body. Satch and Frank are called to the scene, and Frank is convinced that the body, which has been tucked away for three months, is that of Carmen Salinas. Satch wonders how Frank can be so sure since they haven't had a chance to positively ID the body, but Frank believes the Nightngale is toying with him, laughing because Frank can't catch him. It was Carmen's case that led him to the truck and within 50 feet of the killer.

    Satch thinks the killer is rattled. He points out to Frank that hospitals have security cameras in the parking lot. They know the Nightingale stalks his v...

    Wouldn't it be exciting if someday Curtis Armstrong surprised everyone and played a good guy?

    That didn't happen on Frequency Season 1 Episode 6, but even though he was a kook, he some decent thoughts for Raimy to ponder about this new situation in which she's found herself.

    • Permalink: Cut a branch and another grows in its place.

    As depressing as the idea is that you can't change destiny, it shouldn't come as a surprise to Raimy, who is actively trying to get Daniel to believe the same thing.

    Frankly, I find destiny confusing when you're talking about two differently timelines.

    If this whole business about fate is right, wouldn't the original timeline be the one that's meant to be? Where does destiny ...

    Raimy Relives Her First Day on the Force Twice

    On this episode of Frequency, "Seven Three," a new case forces Raimy to remember her first day as a cop in both realities with very different outcomes, Frank tries to give Julie some space and Raimy tries to gather evidence against Stan Moreno.

    Raimy and Frank are at an impasse when it comes to tracking down the Nightingale killer, so the attention shifts to another case -- one father and daughter worked together in 2008. On Raimy's first day on patrol, she and Frank, who was her training officer, locked up a heroin dealer named Benny Arcaro who beat his girlfriend to death. Arcaro served eight years, and two hours after his release, he's been found shot to death in a halfway house.

    A Blast from Two Pasts

    Raimy remembers her first day both ways, before changing the timeline and after. But in the reality without Frank, she never arrested Arcaro. He was found dead with two gunshots to the back of the head. And it just so happens that Raimy's TO ...

    So. THAT happened.

    After watching Frequency Season 1 Episode 5, it's easy to see why it was a no brainer to move it around the schedule and to play it against the CMA awards and the potential final game of the World Series.

    Well done, CW, well done.

    Because "Seven Three" could be skipped on the DVD set with a brief montage highlighting what we already know about Stan and adding in a few sweet scenes featuring a grumpy Raimy and her proud daddy.

    I mean, geez, we've seen Raimy grumpy. She's been Grumpy Gus since her world was turned upside down with the ham. But when she started out as a rookie police officer? A smile would have been nice.

    In either timeline, it would have been something for her to just give it up and enjoy the moment. Wasn't this her dream? 

    Frank: Slow down. We're not going to help anybody if we're not gonna get there.

    Frank and Raimy Question the Same Witness On this episode of Frequency, "Bleed Over," Raimy and Frank both question the daughter of a missing woman believed to be one of the Nightingale's victims, Raimy's investigation of a missing person leads her to a detective with whom she has a personal connection and Julie continues to dismiss Frank's warnings.

    Frank catches another possible break in the Nightingale case. A missing woman, Carmen Salinas, went missing in July of 1996. Her daughter Eva, witnessed the abduction. Police questioned the young girl, but all she said was that a man took her mommy. The cops investigated the husband, but he came up clean. Frank thinks it may be worth a shot talking to Eva again. Satch doesn't hold out hope that Frank will uncover anything new but gives him the "okay" to try.

    Bleed Over

    The Kardashians are not alone.

    If I read The People vs OJ Simpson: American Crime Story right, they became addicted to fame because of everything their father was going through as a result of his involvement in that crime, so it's no surprise Ava felt special on Frequency Season 1 Episode 4.

    There are probably a lot of people who find themselves in similar situations, but never achieve the ranks of the Kardashians. Instead, they probably just wind up feeling guilty.

    Frank doesn't get the respect he deserves from anyone. He was dissed by both his adult daughter and his wife. They question either his motives or rationale far too often.

    Frank's instincts are incredible. It might be difficult for Raimy to let go and trust him because she held with her the idea he was a bad cop for so long, but since they "met" as adults, he's been right at every turn.

    She was disappointed in him for not pulling her back when she got a littl...
