Cop Craft Episode 7: Recap and Review


Cole Mozeleemay

Girls On Ice

Tilarna is undercover as a prostitute. She is sent to see a client and he is arrested by Kei and the other police. Tilarna is pissed that Kei was “late,” and her hair was “touched.” The man that was arrested is Cole Mozeleemay, a mayor candidate. Cole is asked many questions from the press, he claims that allegations are unfounded. Apparently, his wife (Marla) believes that he’s innocent. She says that “some evil person that didn’t want him to be mayor must have set him up.” When he tries to hold her hand, she slaps it and tells him not to touch her. Tilarna is angry at Cole’s lies, while Kei tells her that ” all powerful people are like that.” While outside the restaurant, Tilarna meets Zoey, a prostitute. She doesn’t know that Tilarna was undercover. She asks Tilarna to help her move.

Tilarna and Zoey fishing

Zoey is a photographer, its more of a hobby. She tells Tilarna that she will take a photo for her. Meanwhile, the Chief, Kei and Assistant Prosecutor Gardner discuss the case. They have video of Mozeleemay but it’s probably not enough. They plan on bluffing, hoping that he will give up some of his connections. Kei tells Tilarna that she shouldn’t meet with Zoey anymore. If Zoey (a potential witness) finds out that Tilarna is actually a cop she would feel betrayed. Kei thinks that Zoey will get mad and refuse to testify. Kei tells her not to “get involved with people you’re investigating.” Tilarna is naive. She doesn’t believe that Kei is right. Tilarna continues to be friends with Zoey.

Zoey getting shot

Meanwhile, a list with fake and some real names is “leaked.” Making it less likely that Cole Mozeleemay will get prosecuted. At night, Cole and Zoey meet. They exchange money and Cole gropes Zoey and she reveals that she recording the conversation. The following morning, Tilarna starts to suspect that Zoey is the leak. She confronts her the next day. While their talking, Zoey is killed by a gunshot. Kei goes after the assassin. He kills the assassin before he can reveal who hired him. Meanwhile, Zoey is in critical condition. It appears that Cole wasn’t involved but his wife may have been. Tilarna vows not to let him(Cole) get away with this. Zoey dies, leaving Tilarna a beautiful photo.

The photo Zoey left behind

This is hands down the best episode of this series. The political conspiracy isn’t particular original, but it was well done. Tilarna’s lack of experience in the human world make her the perfect avatar to critique the human concept of justice. While her feeling that it would be unfair for Cole to get away with it makes sense, the episode makes it clear that Cole isn’t making the decisions. The due process or gathering of the evidence is necessary to be sure that someone is guilty. Tilarna doesn’t get this yet. I think she may take the laws into her own hands, but Kei may help her learn the value of the human concept of justice. I look forward to seeing how this arc concludes.

  1. I am interested to see where they go with Tilarna and whether she does take justice into her own hands or not. This isn’t the first time she’s been critical of Kei’s version of justice but last time it kind of got swept under the rug so it would be nice to see if it gets explored a bit more this time.
