Bosch: Legacy Episode 5 ‘Plan B’ Recap
Following up on the cliffhanger ending of episode 4, Bosch: Legacy continues with Bosch managing to talk his way out of being caught by the security guard involved in Rogers’ fuel theft plan. While escorting him from the premises, he poses as a security consultant, threatening to take the guard’s job if he can’t provide him with a good reason not to dismiss him.
Bosch returns to his hideaway courtesy of Crate & Barrel and returns to base in time to brief Chandler on his findings in greater detail. Maddie and Vasquez take up a pregnant homeless woman the next morning. Maddie calls around to various shelters in the hopes of finding one that will take the woman in while Vasquez brings her some food.
When they drop her off at one of the shelters later, she denies their assistance immediately outside the door. Maddie struggles once more with the idea that not everyone will accept help when they are offered it, feeling more and more compelled to help no matter what a quality that appears to have been passed down to her from her father.
Bosch is still hunting leads in the Vance/Santanello case as the clock ticks down. He tracks down one of Dominick’s old Navy mates, Lewis. Bosch gives him a photograph of a mother and child that he processed from Dominick’s old camera film. Lewis doesn’t know much about her, but she was a photojournalist who once interviewed Dominick for a story, and it was love at first sight for him.
Bosch is also formulating a plot with Mo to demolish the tube that is being used to syphon the fuel. Mo is tasked with hacking into the frequency used to explode the kill-switch explosives that Rogers’ men have already laid, so that all Bosch has to do when the time comes is be in range, and the tunnel will light up.
Chandler is making progress in her area as the lads concentrate on their part of the plan. She has a meeting with the D.A., where the two negotiate on a deal for Rogers, which he will have no choice but to accept if his stolen fuel-funded scheme to repay the Russians fails and he needs a safe haven.
Maddie returns to the streets and receives a call from the rape victim with whom she previously worked. She fully disregards Vasquez’s advise to disconnect, instead of going to the victim’s address and offering her advice on some security measures she could implement to make her feel safe in her own house once more.
Maddie later explains her involvement in the case to her father over lunch, adding that no matter how hard she tries, she cannot let it go. He reacts by telling her that she must choose what kind of cop she wants to be. However, before the two of them can go any farther, a news bulletin announces the death of Whitney Vance, Bosch’s client.
Meanwhile, Chandler is set to meet with Rogers’ right-hand guy, Simon Wakefield, who was exploited as a pawn to collect information on the fuel scam. After affirming that he would assist in exchange for his son avoiding his own inquiry, he scheduled a meeting with Chandler to go over the finer points of the crime. However, before Chandler can have that conversation with Wakefield, Rogers and his Russian associates are well aware of Wakefield’s chattiness.
When Chandler gets at Wakefield’s house, she discovers a body floating face-down in the backyard pool. She also finds his phone, which she retrieves and hands over to Mo, who will use it to work his magic and maybe deliver the knowledge that Wakefield would have provided if he had lived long enough.
The fuel heist, it turns out, is scheduled for that night. Bosch and Mo prepare to execute their plan to call the operation to a halt, but when Mo’s signal interception fails to proceed as planned, Bosch is forced to resort to Plan B.
Bosch: Legacy Episode 5 Ending Explained
Chandler is about to enter a meeting with Rogers and his lawyer. His phone begins to ring as she discusses what Rogers will be expected to do in reference to the civil claim she has filed against him. He ignores it, and the two continue their conversation, with Rogers having no interest in what Chandler is proposing. Rogers, on the other hand, answers his phone when it rings again.
It’s his guys from the fuel heist location who tell how Bosch and Mo have completely destroyed the facility. In the presence of Chandler, Rogers tries to downplay the severity of the call. Still, she reveals her hand, telling Rogers that she knows exactly what that phone call was about and that he now has a choice to make: settle with her right now and accept the prosecution deal she set up in the event of this exact situation playing out, or leave the deal on the table and take his chances with the Russians.
Rogers accepts the bargain and is spirited away to a safe house, knowing that he is effectively a dead man walking in the eyes of the Russians at this point. Whether this will be enough to protect him from his enemies and himself remains to be seen.
