"Everybody Counts" is the tenth and final episode of the second season of the streaming series Bosch, and the twentieth episode of the series.

The episode premiered on Amazon Instant Video and LOVEFiLM along with the rest of the second season on 11 March 2016.

The episode is rated TV-MA for "adult content, adult language," and "graphic violence," and derives its title from Bosch's personal credo: "Everybody counts or nobody counts."

SummaryEdit

TeaserEdit

"A few days" after speaking with Annette McKay, Bosch reads through his mother's case file at his house in the Hollywood Hills before telling Eleanor that he is going to meet a woman who knew his mother and claims to know who killed her. He promises to return in time to take Eleanor and his daughter to lunch before driving them to the airport for their return flight to Las Vegas.

Bosch leaves, and Eleanor examines his mother's murder book, finding the photograph of Harry and Marjorie from 1979.

Act OneEdit

At the River Watch Retirement Community, Bosch meets with McKay, who admits that she didn't know that Harry had grown up to become a detective until she saw his name in the newspaper in December of the previous year. Annette explains that on the night that Harry's mother was killed, Marjory had gone on a date with one of Annette's regulars who she only knew as Mitch; she admits that the man could be rough, but insists that she warned Marjory before sending her to Room 7 of the City Center Hotel. Annette claims that she fled the city after Marjory's death, making an anonymous call to the police from Union Station before leaving; Bosch asks whether she spoke with Detective John Caffery, but she insists that she doesn't remember. Bosch thanks McKay for finally telling him, and leaves.

At his house in the mountains, Nash wakes to find his space heater malfunctioning. He tries and fails to open a can of sausages and nearly shoots the can instead, but tries again instead and eats.

At the beach in Santa Monica, Eleanor and Maddie eat gelato while Bosch explains that his interview with McKay yielded information worth pursuing. A young girl then approaches Maddie to ask the teenager to push her on the swings, which Bosch allows; he then admits to Eleanor that he is still worried about the two of them, and Eleanor claims that she is unsure of the future of her career and her marriage. Maddie returns a moment later, and admits that she will miss her father.

That night, Bosch arrives at the City Center Hotel, which still keeps its registration records from the day it opened in 1953. The desk clerk recalls two murders from 1980, but claims that no one was killed at the Hotel in 1979; he shows Bosch to a storage closet and leaves him to examine the Hotel's old registers. The detective pages through the books before finding the name of Fox Mitchell; the desk clerk does not recognize the name, and Bosch borrows the book before examining Room 7.

Later that night, Bosch returns to his house in the Hollywood Hills, looking out over the city before retreating to his bedroom.

Act TwoEdit

The next morning, District Attorney O'Shea meets with Interim Chief Irving outside City Hall, and insists that the Chief will face consequences if he rescinds his support for the District Attorney. Irving reiterates that he will not accept the position of Chief permanently, and explains that he gave a copy of the video of Raynard Waits's escape the previous December to the Los Angeles Times.

At the Hollywood station, Billets questions Bosch's request for two unsolved case files from 1980, and the detective explains that he is passing time while he and Edgar wait for orders from RHD on the Nash pursuit; he assures her that Edgar has already compiled a discovery package for Veronica Allen's arraignment the next day. Billets reminds Bosch that the LAPD has a cold case unit, but Bosch insists that the 1980 murders are not being investigated. He explains that both cases are connected to the City Center Hotel, where his mother visited the night of her murder.

In the Homicide squad room, Bosch, Edgar, Johnson, and Moore watch the video of Waits's escape on the Times website, and Edgar claims that the story will end O'Shea's run for mayor.

That night, Edgar visits the Los Angeles Regional Crime Laboratory, where Lester Poole explains that six firearms and 68 shell casings were recovered from the scene of the First National Pacific Bank shootout. He explains that the guns used by Nash's crew had their serial numbers filed off, and that the chemicals used to restore the numbers will take several days to work; he also explains that the casings used by Nash's crew were reloaded, and asks if a reloader was found at Nash's residence. Edgar admits that none had been discovered.

At the River Watch Retirement Community, Bosch smuggles packs of cigarettes in a cupcake box as he visits John Caffrey to question him about Fox Mitchell. Caffrey insists that he never received a call concerning the City Center Hotel, but Bosch demands to know who Fox Mitchell is; Caffrey relents, admitting that the name was an alias for a confidential informant working with the Narcotics division, and that his request to speak with the man was denied. He insists that he never learned Mitchell's real name, and Bosch claims that once Caffrey got the case, his mother never had a chance.

In prison, Veronica Allen is summoned to speak with her lawyer; she discovers Sunny Chandler, and describes her altercation with Father Tabakian, claiming that the priest "went berserk, yelling and screaming" before picking up a pair of scissors and lunging at her, forcing her to defend herself. Chandler assures Veronica that she will dig deep into Tabakian's background, and that by the time they proceed to trial, Veronica will be seen as the victim.

At Veronica's arraignment, Bosch and Edgar encounter Chandler, who admits that she took Allen's case because of the media exposure it will receive. During the arraignment, Veronica enters a plea of not guilty. Outside the courtroom, Bosch and Edgar pass Chandler as she speaks before a gaggle of reporters, and overhear her claim she had previously proven Bosch had a history of misconduct.

Act ThreeEdit

At the Narcotics Division, Bosch meets with Lt. Vincent Serrano to request the real identity of Fox Mitchell. Serrano claims that Bosch needs command approval to access informant files, but Bosch counters that he has three murdered women that no one cared enough about; Serrano then admits that his commanding officer when he was a rookie was Harvey Pounds, and that he was amused when he learned that Bosch pushed Pounds through a plate-glass window the previous December. The Lieutenant then drops his keys on his desk, telling Bosch that he is going to brew a pot of coffee in the breakroom before leaving the office and closing the door.

Alone in the office, Bosch searches the filing cabinets before finding the records of Fox Mitchell, whose real name is Arno Epperson, who has since been relocated. He finds a newspaper article concerning a massive drug bust in October of 1992, then discovers a photograph including Irving as a sergeant on the Narcotics task force.

At the Hollywood station, Edgar tells Bosch that Poole managed to recover full serial numbers from Nash's SIG Sauer MPX and O'Grady's Beretta, both of which were purchased legally and then sold to a hunting preserve in the mountains; Edgar explains that the guns were later among several firearms reported stolen from the hunting preserve. Bosch suggests interviewing the owner of the hunting preserve, but Edgar informs him that the man died eight months prior, and that the preserve's phone message indicates that it is no longer open for business. The detectives agree to follow the lead anyway.

Act FourEdit

In the mountains, Bosch and Edgar arrive at the hunting preserve where they find the chain on the gate cut. They park and arm themselves, proceeding on foot to the house, but come under fire as Nash begins shooting from a window; the detectives return fire until Edgar catches Nash with a glancing blow. Nash then announces that he has no intention of leaving alive as he retrieves a case of grenades from a closet, though he claims to have pictures and tapes that implicate Veronica in the death of Tony Allen. Bosch offers to discuss the possibility of a deal, but Nash throws a grenade that explodes just yards away from the detective; Edgar opens fire again, and Nash prepares to throw another grenade, but Bosch clips him with a shot, and Nash drops the explosive.

The grenade detonates, blasting Nash through the door onto the porch, killing him; Bosch and Edgar pull the body away as the house begins to burn. Bosch then attempts to head inside to collect any evidence against Veronica, but the fire ignites the bullets and remaining grenades, blasting the house and knocking the detectives to the ground.

At the LAPD Headquarters Building, Irving packs his office before receiving a message from Bosch showing a photograph of Nash's dead body.

At the Hollywood station, Billets informs Bosch and Edgar that RHD will handle the clean-up of the Nash investigation, and advises the detectives to take a few days off to recover. Bosch agrees, though he wonders where Layla went with all of Allen's stolen money.

On the balcony of a waterfront restaurant in Italy, Layla drinks and watches another couple while Marty Weiss watches her from inside, making a phone call to inform someone that the girl has been located.

Irving visits the LAPD Memorial Wall to view the installation of George's placard; he is approached there by Bosch, who asks Irving to use his position as Chief of Police to access information about Arno Epperson's relocation in connection with his mother's murder. Irving agrees to do what he can, and assures the detective that he will be in contact soon.

In Morro Bay, Bosch visits Big Wave Boards to ask for "Big Wave Dave," but learns that the man died of cancer two years prior. Bosch finds a picture of the man, who went by the name of Dave Aronson, and punches it, shattering the glass.

Later, Bosch visits the grave of David Aronson, and tells the man that he "won" because he "got away with it." He then spits on the grave, and leaves, remembering the last night that he saw his mother alive as well as thinking about his daughter

Federal agents seized almost 21 tons of cocaine worth up to $6 billion on the street, the largest narcotics haul recorded at a San Fernando Valley warehouse, officials said Saturday.
Four men believed to be Colombian nationals were arrested in the Los Angeles area and about $5 million in cash was seized at a warehouse during raids that began about 8 p.m. Friday, according to DEA agents.
The Drug Enforcement Administration said the seizure represents about 6% of the world's annual production of the drug.
"This isn't just powder on the table," said Robert Eida a DEA spokesman in Washington. "It's more like a blizzard."
Stopped Van
Officers said they stopped a suspicious looking van and arrested a man who gave his name, sarcastically, as "George Bush."
Sgt. Irvin Irving of the LAPD said the surveillance team obtained a warrant and searched the van, finding 10 kilograms of cocaine in a compartment.
Moving swiftly, the investigation team obtained search warrants for the warehouse and for a penthouse apartment in the 1700 block of Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, but by the time the officers arrived in each location, all the ... were gone. Irving theorized that when the van was stopped, "an alert probably went through the system, and they left." He said the suspects all carried beepers and they all moved on a tight, rigidly controlled system.
Additional Arrests
Two additional arrests reportedly occurred in San Diego Saturday. Two Los Angeles men, one of them a former border customs official, were arrested by DEA agents at an expensive hotel in connection with the seizure. The men were charged with importation and distribution of narcotics.
Los Angeles Police Department authorities said further arrests were expected.
The raids followed a tip from a neighborhood businessman who said activities that "didn't look quite right" at the warehouse where, according to authorities, an import business dealing in inexpensive ceramics, paintings, and other bric-a-brac was operating as a front.
