Who Kidnapped Maddie in Bosch Legacy? Is She Dead or Alive? – The spin-off of Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Bosch,’ ‘Bosch: Legacy,’ includes all of the elements that made the original series so popular, while there are some modifications. While the original series follows Bosch (Titus Welliver) as a police detective in the Hollywood Homicide Division, the spin-off follows the eponymous character as he leaves the force and pursues a career as a private investigator.
The relationship between Bosch and his daughter Maddie (Madison Lintz) is a fundamental element that is consistent across both shows. This is why the cliffhanger at the end of the first season has such a strong emotional resonance. Maddie isn’t there when Harry arrives at her house. She could have been kidnapped, and there’s a good probability she was. Everything you need to know about it is right here.
Who Kidnapped Maddie and What Is the Reason?
Maddie goes through a learning process throughout the first season, learning what it’s like to be a police officer on the streets of Los Angeles. Everything comes to a head in the season finale, ‘Always/All Ways,’ when a guy dies from a gunshot wound right in front of her. Despite knowing that he is beyond help, she strives to save his life. She then does the only thing she can for the man as he passes away.
She calls her father, who is traumatised by the episode, but Bosch does not respond. She becomes concerned about her father as additional calls go unanswered. She has every reason to be worried, even if she doesn’t realise it. Her father was attempting to defend a mother and her child from a professional assassin at the time.
Maddie was expected to appear at an art display later, but she did not. It’s now Bosch’s turn to be concerned. He goes to his daughter’s house only to discover that she is nowhere to be found. He also notices that one of the windows’ screens has been cut, which matches the modus operandi of the luchador mask-wearing rapist who has sexually assaulted a number of women in Los Angeles’ Thai Town district.
As Maddie gets home earlier in the episode, we find the rapist hiding in one of the rooms. The rapist is heavily implied to have kidnapped her.
‘Bosch: Legacy’ adds a new character, Kurt Dockweiler (Will Chase), in episode 9, titled ‘Cat Got a Name?‘. He’s a property inspector that Maddie contacts him after discovering his phone number on an inspection notice while looking for further information on the rapist.
Later, Dockweiler phones her and claims he was unaware of the attacks. He did, however, check her up on the internet. This suggests that he could be the rapist wearing a luchador mask. If that’s the case, Maddie has been kidnapped by Dockweiler.
Is Maddie Alive or Dead At the End of The Episode?
Maddie is most likely still alive. One thing to keep in mind is that when Bosch enters Maddie’s house, he finds no indication of a struggle. So it wasn’t a physical altercation, whatever happened there. Dockweiler may have knocked her out first and then taken her away. Kidnapping, on the other hand, does not always meet the rapist’s Modus Operandi. This suggests that if Maddie was stolen, something unexpected occurred, forcing him to improvise.
Another hypothesis is that he kidnapped her in order to reach an agreement with the authorities that would allow him to avoid punishment. The counter-argument here is that, because no one knows who the true rapist is, Dockweiler would be foolish to disclose himself and his name.
The final explanation for why he kidnapped Maddie is that he wanted to realise a psychotic desire. He is a man with twisted and wicked sexual impulses who enjoys living recklessly. His ultimate desire may be to kidnap and rape a beautiful police officer. Whatever his motivation for kidnapping Maddie, one thing is certain. But Bosch isn’t going to stop looking for his daughter until he finds her.
