Bosch: Legacy Episode 6 ‘Chain of Authenticity’ Recap
Rogers’ lawyer’s first move in episode 6 is a late-night contact with her to convey his concerns that the prosecution arrangement she secured would fall through, after the deal, they signed with Chandler at the end of episode 5. Chandler tells him that everything is kosher, but he remains uneasy.
He returns to the safe house where Rogers is now holed up and hands him a vial of white substance as soon as the call ends. Rogers’ custodians are knocked out cold after he slips it into their coffee, which is later discovered to be the crucial ingredient in aiding his escape from the safe house.
Rogers’ escape is due to the fact that he has a shipping container waiting for him in Vietnam. This country does not extradite to the United States and is far away from the Russians, who are even more eager to apprehend him than local law enforcement. They visit his lover, but she has no idea who he is; nevertheless, how much the Russians care is debatable.
Meanwhile, Maddie and Chandler discuss the implications of Rogers accepting the deal. Maddie expresses her displeasure that he was given an easier path rather than facing the full brunt of the law following his original trial, but Chandler is quick to point out that things might have been a lot worse for them. They sat in the area where Maddie was interviewed after finding Chandler’s body that fateful morning, reliving the day Chandler was shot.
After the Vance/Santanello case came to a halt, Bosch had some free time at his office. After hearing about a rumoured quarrel he had with a former colleague who was tasked with investigating the murder of the doctor stabbed to death at the opening of episode 1, Bosch decided to take action and seek out who killed the doctor if it wasn’t Jeffrey Herstadt.
This, however, is put on hold when Chandler learns that Rogers has fled the safe house and is now on the run. She summons Bosch, and the two set out to find Rogers in either of the two probable destinations they believe he’s on his way to, because the shipping container he’s planning to use to flee is stored at one of them. When Bosch notifies Chandler that the container has already moved on from his site, she decides to continue wandering for a while longer before returning.
Chandler comes into a container that meets the description of the one she obtained designs for, which led to her and Bosch’s knowledge of Rogers’ escape plan in the first place, while nosing around in one of the warehouses at her location. She looks around but runs for shelter when the Russians approach, having learned of Rogers’ evacuation strategy.
They sit and wait for Rogers to show up, and when he comes, they take him out once and for all, with Chandler present, to see the whole thing. Later, she and Bosch toast the result, but pledge that this is information that must be kept between them forever.
A fresh day dawns, and in Bosch’s presumed-dead Vance/Santanello case, a new leader emerges. One morning, among the junk mail, Bosch discovers an envelope containing Vance’s gold pen and a holographic will naming Bosch as the executor of Vance’s estate.
He presents his findings to Chandler, who acknowledges that the next steps are to establish the will’s legitimacy and secure the document. With billions of dollars on the line, she makes it apparent that people who believe they have a claim will go to any length to acquire it, so Bosch advises having as many insurance policies as possible.
Is Carl Rogers Dead in Bosch: Legacy Episode 6?
Carl Rogers is one of the few characters that has survived the transition from the original show to the spin-off. He’s a cruel hedge fund tycoon who hired a professional assassin to assassinate a number of people, including Chandler. He was detained, but was released after the prosecution’s most notable witness against him went rogue.
He made a deal with the Russian mafia while incarcerated, and it has turned out to be a terrible idea. Rogers abducts his FBI guards and flees the country. Rogers planned to utilise a specialised shipping container to travel to Vietnam, a country with which America has no extradition treaty. Bosch and Chandler are aware of this.
They discover that the two shipping containers they discovered have already left, and they believe Rogers is on his way to Vietnam. Chandler, on the other hand, discovers a third shipping container.
Alex, Lev, and their father arrived shortly after. Rogers’ eventual refuge was discovered thanks to his lawyer, whom they tortured and killed. Chandler hides outside the container while the three Russian mafia men wait inside.
Chandler does not intervene when Rogers comes and is ready to enter. The Ivanovich family quickly assassinates Rogers. Chandler and Bosch later agree not to tell Maddie about this.
Why does Vance appoint Bosch as his sole executor?
Bosch receives an envelope from Vance’s secretary, Ida, after Vance’s death. He discovers the Vance family’s gold pen inside, as well as a handwritten note from Vance naming Bosch as the sole executor of his estate. Recognizing the need for legal advice, Bosch pays a visit to Chandler and tells her everything.
They should keep their heads down and wait to see what the other parties do, according to Chandler. After that, Bosch places the letter in his safe deposit box and gives the pen and envelope to his former partner Jerry, who will bury them among the evidence in one of his cases. Vance understood out what kind of man Bosch was and realised he could rely on him.
Furthermore, Vance had learnt that Bosch had grown up without a father and would go to any length to find Vance’s replacement. Now that he is the sole executor of Vance’s will, Bosch can focus on finding the heir.
