Motive, CTV – “Detour” (new timeslot)
Detectives Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis Ferreira) investigate the death of a mortgage broker who was found strangled in his office parking lot. Their initial examination of evidence leads them to a disgruntled ex-wife as well as a petty thief, but neither lead pans out. A composite police sketch and a stubborn refusal to follow orders leads Flynn to a man whose desire to make amends with his family, coupled with a lapse in sobriety, has led to tragic results. Guest stars include Aidan Devine (A History of Violence), Tammy Gillis (LESS THAN KIND), and Gemini Award-winner David Julian Hirsh (WEEDS).
