Spoilers for 'In the Dark' Season 2 Episode 12 'Where Have You Ben?'
We are just one episode away from the Season 2 finale for 'In the Dark' and no wonder viewers have run out of patience when it comes to Dean Riley (Rich Sommer). The former police officer killed Murphy Mason's (Perry Mattfeld) friend, Tyson and got away with it. Throughout the second season, he has been put in charge of the investigation on Chicago crime lord, Nia Bailey (Nicki Micheaux) and seemed to treat it like a personal tool to exact vengeance on both Nia and Murphy.
After multiple mishaps during his investigation, he was fired. So, he turned to Nia to inform her that Murphy was double-crossing her in exchange for a cut in Nia's drug shipment, which led to Nia almost killing Murphy, but instead getting shot herself by Murphy's friend, Jess Damon (Brooke Markham). With the news of Nia being dead, Dean decides to take the search for the drugs into his own hand. To recall, after Murphy and Felix Bell (Morgan Krantz) entrusted Guiding Hope receptionist, Ben (Chris Perfetti) with the drugs they stole from Nia, Ben hid them for his own gain. Unfortunately, before he could reveal where they were, he overdosed. Ben also happened to be the brother of both Felix's and Dean's former girlfriend, Chelsea (Lindsey Broad).
While Murphy and the others conduct their search for the drugs to give to Nia's competitor Josiah (Maurice Compte), Dean does his own search with the intent of keeping them for himself so he can cash in on them. However, by the end of this week's episode, it seems that he might be willing to work with Murphy once again. We are sure it's for his own gain, but we don't know what he hopes to gain by it yet.
By now, fans have had enough of Dean and hope he gets his due. After what Dean pulls in this week's episode, including pretending to still be a police officer to search Chelsea's bar, fans may even want him dead. One fan tweeted, "That little snake Dean… He better finally die next week #IntheDark." Another wrote, "A moment of Dean is miserable. So he wants everyone else to be miserable #InTheDark."
A fan opined, "#InTheDark is Next week season Finale!!?? Dean better get taken Out then. Then his Daughter can live with Murphy.. she really needs to have a life... !!" Another tweeted, "Why do we have to wait for Dean to die a painful death? #InTheDark." A fan shared, "I am seriously losing my mind over tonight’s ep of @CWInTheDark. Can we finally reveal that Dean is the worst #InTheDark."
While fans may get what they ask for, sometimes we ought to remember that a lot of what Dean does is for his daughter, Chloe, though it does not excuse his actions. At this point, it will be interesting to see whether Dean will straight-up die or if he might be given a redemption arc.
'In the Dark' airs on The CW on Thursday nights at 9/8c. The Season 2 finale airs on July 9.
