Recap / Millennium E 10 The Wild And The Innocent

Oh Lord, if there is a Lord, save my soul, if I have a Soul.
Ernest Renan

Frank and Peter Watts track a young couple who have driven off with the woman's abusive father locked in the trunk.

Tropes

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Maddie was attracted to Bobby. Not anymore.
  • Bastard Boyfriend: Bobby
  • Bittersweet Ending: Maddie may have went to jail for shooting Bobby, but at least she'll be happy knowing Angel will have a good life.
  • Corrupt Hick: Jim Gilroy
  • Driven to Suicide: Maddie's mother eventually killed herself because she couldn't stop Jim's sexual abuse of her daughter.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Jim Gilroy and Bobby. Gilroy confesses to Frank that he wasn't ready for him.
  • Give Him a Normal Life: Maddie does this for Angel, her infant son.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Jim Gilroy, a serial killer who cut three nurses, gets beaten badly by Bobby. And finally caught.
  • Outlaw Couple: Deconstructed. Maddie needs Bobby to help find Angel, and she gives into him sexually, but they're not really a couple. Also, she's not a psycho like he is.
