Motive is nearing the end of its run, and everyone involved is clearly looking to go out on top. After weeks of strong stories and high-profile guest strs, Tuesday’s newest, “In Plain Sight,” not only boasts Tommy Flanagan, but Continuum/Intelligence actor Ian Tracey, iZombie‘s Aly Michalka and Rookie Blue‘s Missy Peregrym.
Here’s the network synopsis:
When an abducted woman returns and is later found nail-gunned to death, Detective Angie Flynn and the team discover that truth is stranger than fiction. Angie embraces her new relationship with Agent Jack Stoker, while Staff Sergeant Oscar Vega’s increasing frustration with the bureaucracy in the department drives him to look for other options.
Here’s what else we can tell you about the episode, written by Damon Vignale.
Missy Peregrym as you’ve never seen her before
Rookie Blue viewers are used to seeing her as cop Andy McNally, but Motive poses Peregrym as the killer in this episode. It’s a twisting, turning case that involves kidnapping, an estranged father, bundles of cash and a private investigator (Tracey), leading to one shocker of an ending.
Betty and Lucas team up for Angie teasing
“Sure hope Stoker is ‘fitting in,'” mocks Betty. “Like a glove,” adds Lucas. Love it.
Vega weighs his options
Fed up with being questioned constantly, Vega is considering another career. Based on his impression of Al Pacino, we think improv might be a good move too.
Motive airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on CTV.
