Will Trent is on the case as his past comes back to haunt him (in more ways than one). With Angie on leave, it’s up to Will, Faith, and Ormewood to work together in episode 12, “Nothing Changed Except for Everything.” But in this case, it looks we have a serial killer that not only connects to a past case for Amanda when she was a cop, but also Trent’s past as it seems like the murder victims are all orphans (at least these new victims).
People from the children’s home where Will, Angie, and even Paul Campano, who was a main character in the first two episodes of the series, (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) grew up are being targeted. And in one of our first Betty scenes of the episode, we see Will telling Angie that their fellow orphans are in danger. In the scene, Betty is actually in Angie’s suitcase as she packs to go back to her own home after what seems to be the latest breakup between the two.
Then we get another Betty moment as Paul reveals what happens to him when he was attacked in his car after the gym. Betty seems pretty obsessed with Paul as she keeps jumping into his lap until finally Will snags his pup and says that she is staying by his side until this case is over. (And since we see Will still carrying Betty around the next morning when Faith and Ormewood show up at his house, it is clear that he really means to have her at his side throughout this case.)
Will Trent is on the hunt for a serial killer as Will keeps Betty close
Even when Will and Angie go back to the home they grew up in, they have Betty with them. In this moment it is clear that for Will Trent, Betty is as much his emotional support pup as she is his companion. And it’s also thanks to Betty that Angie and Will find a picture of a group of kids from the home, with some of the eyes scratched out (on the people who have already been killed).
It’s hard to deny that this entire episode was bolstered by Betty. She seemed to be a big part of the action and her presence was noticeable every single time we saw her pop up. There is still a killer to be caught and a mystery to solve, but we needed the softness of Betty to handle a lot of the pain that was part of this episode.
The fact that the episode ends with Angie missing, Will’s house tossed, a picture of Angie with her eyes scratched out and Betty trapped in a laundry basket is proof that this is going to be one heck of a case and an unforgettable season finale.
