There was a flashback to the scene on the floor where renovations took place. Jamie had a secret meeting with Ames and Indian lady-chief. As he was last to leave, Rosie’s cell phone rang deep in the dark of the floor. He confronted her and then her video camera fell on the floor. Jamie lost it and hit her hard. She fell unconscious. She managed to get to the woods but Jamie followed her and then gave her a vicious beating. He put her in a trunk and then met with Ames near the lake. As Jamie was trying to convince Ames to “take care” of it because Rosie saw everything, for Ames the whole situation went in a wrong direction and he wanted no part of it; he was undoing his whole involvement and the reason for it. As he was reneging on the whole deal (i.e. he will have his own “deal” and make his own money with Indian lady-chief and then he will leave his wife and get on with Terry). As she was sitting in the car, Terry felt an urge to keep her promise of a future life intact and she just goes out of the Ames’ car and puts Jamie’s car – the campaign car – into drive gear and the car with Rosie in trunk, still alive goes under water. She had no idea who was in the trunk – all she knew is that whoever it is has jeopardized her future and she was determined to resolve it.
I must say the scene when Stan and Mitch finally hear what happened to Rosie and who was responsible was one of the most gut-wrenching scenes on TV in a while.
Another memorable scene was Jamie’s personality unwinding with Richmond. So was realizing the lessons learned by Richmond the next day as he started working as a mayor.
Also, I’d say that the resolution felt real, it had to do with people in various complex states of minds and it was worth it.
