'LA's Finest' Season 2 Ending Explained: With the stage set for Season 3, who is trying to kill Syd and Nancy?
A lot of things happened in this season of 'LA's Finest'. Apart from a raging crime wave in Koreatown, Syd (Gabrielle Union) hunting down Jen's killer and Walker's abduction, Nancy McKenna's (Jessica Alba) marriage hit rock bottom, though she managed to save her relationship with her step-daughter Izzie. At first, Izzie was sulky and upset as she saw that Nancy and Patrick (Ryan McPartlin) were barely talking, and she felt that Nancy would leave her too.
After several confrontations where Izzie almost left the house in a fit of anger, she decided to work on her relationship with Nancy. Nancy and Patrick decided to separate and then came back together in the end, only for Patrick to be shot dead in the penultimate episode. The dots began to connect, as the LAPD realized that the Koreatown murders were linked to Patrick as well.
There was a massive shootout with much blood spattering the walls and arrests were made. Nancy found Patrick's shooter and gunned him down in a fit of frenzy...or well self-defense as he was about to shoot her too.
Meanwhile, Syd spent most of the season trying to understand who Jen really was. It turns out that Jen had a dark history of her own and had hidden everything from Syd. She was a woman named Malorie Mitchell, who had been believed to be dead for years. However, she, along with other women, had been locked away, tortured and abused for years. Jen had been forced into prostitution and then she made her escape. And then she was killed by her tormenter, finally.
Syd tracked down her family, and then, her sister Emma was taken hostage by the same man. The LAPD ambushed the kidnapper, however, it turns out that one of his victims-turned-girlfriends, by the name of Beverly Gamble, was in on this abduction and had Emma with a knife to her throat. Syd managed to talk Beverly out of it, but Emma lost control and shot Beverly.
Syd took the blame for Emma and was about to put her career on the line, till Emma finally owned up to it. At the end of the season, everything seemed sorted and you would believe that all was just sort of getting okay... except that just after Patrick's funeral, Syd and Nancy's car blows up. Though the two women survive, two men watch from cars and throw very telling cigarettes on the ground. It's not over, and they're on someone's hit list, which sets up Season 3.
