As the first season of Elsbeth comes to a close, with a promise of more next year, it’s time to think back on her time in New York. Elsbeth has been a confident, amateur murder detective with a knack for making friends all season. Her role in the city, the police force, and her friendship with Captain Wagner have all changed, though.

Elsbeth Season 1 Finale Recap: Murder on the Runway

elsbeth_110 finale recap-

The case in the finale episode of Elsbeth’s first season is the murder of photographer Ezra Tate at a famous fashion show. The episode starts with Nadine Clay’s last walk down the runway at her ex-husband Nick Garrison’s fashion show, which is based around climate change. Ezra Tate is one of the shooters. In his messenger bag is an envelope marked “PANGAEA PROJECT.” This is a project he worked on with Nadine (Laura Benanti) and Nick while they were at FUNY (Fashion University of New York).

No one finds out that Ezra was shot with a gun that has a silencer on it until after the show is over. Nadine and Nick are among the suspects. They were backstage but not seen when the killing happened. Their nasty split and doubts about each other’s intentions make them the most likely suspects.

As Elsbeth looks into it, she meets fashion designer Mateo Hart and beauty Nadine, who are both going through changes in their careers. Mateo says that the Pangaea Project was a controversial fashion project with racist photos. Ezra may have been using these photos to threaten Nadine and Nick.

It gets personal for Elsbeth when she finds out that Mateo killed Ezra as part of the investigation. Mateo shot Ezra to hide the fact that he had killed him by accident during a fight over the blackmail because he was obsessed with his reputation and didn’t want to be linked to the Pangaea Project.

Even though the shocking news comes out, Elsbeth’s friendship with Captain Wagner gives her peace of mind, and he makes sure she stays involved in investigations. The season ends on a hopeful note, with Elsbeth embracing her unique style and detective skills. Her successful walk down the runway at Mateo’s fashion show is a great example of this.

Elsbeth Season 1 Episode 10: Ending Explained!

In the end, Elsbeth and Captain Wagner clear the captain’s name with the help of a shamed former Lieutenant Noonan, who is blamed for many crimes. In spite of their victory, Elsbeth’s secret investigation into Captain Wagner’s past makes their relationship stronger. Even though Elsbeth really cares about the captain, he feels betrayed by what she did.

Even though they had a rough past, Elsbeth tells Wagner that she was only doing her job. In the end, she is right about him; he is a good man. Wagner changes his mind after hearing what she had to say. He goes to Elsbeth’s fashion show and offers her a bigger office and a stable job with the NYPD.

Carrie Preston, who plays Elsbeth, talked about how her character changed in the season end in an interview. She worried that Elsbeth would become too perfect, and she stressed how important it was to give her flaws and weaknesses to make her more real and understandable. Preston talked about how emotionally powerful the scenes between Elsbeth and Captain Wagner, played by Wendell Pierce, were. He said that they let them show a different part of Elsbeth than they had seen on “The Good Wife,” “The Good Fight,” and “Elsbeth.”

With regards to Elsbeth’s character’s future, Preston thought that Elsbeth’s son might show up in later episodes, but he preferred to leave the character’s future up to the viewers. She also talked about the possibility of her husband, Michael Emerson, appearing as a guest star on the show. She said he could play a role that was different from his normal “evil” ones, which would be fun for him.

As Officer Kaya Blanke, Carra Patterson, played by Preston’s co-star, was also praised for giving her character a subtle and earthy tone that worked well with Elsbeth’s more unusual personality. She talked about a scene in the end where Elsbeth and Kaya are taking down caricatures in the office. This brought out the emotional weight of the scene and how well the two characters get along.
