We'll Always Have Homicide is the series finale of "Motive" which aired on August 30, 2016.


The victim: Trent McAllister, the owner of International Bailiff Services, a company that specializes in high end repossessions. His mangled dead body is found next to a helicopter that he was probably repossessing, he killed by being caught in the helicopter's moving rear rotor.

The killer: Lexi Moore, the young woman who three years earlier killed Judge Natalie Rodman and mechanic Mark Duff, the two associated cases still unsolved.

The Metro Vancouver Homicide Department investigating the case is comprised of Sergeant Gavin Saunders and Detectives Paula Mazur and Mitch Kennecki. Some stray cat hairs at the crime scene tie this case back to that of Judge Rodman's. As such, those who worked on Judge Rodman's investigation are called back into service for this case, those being Sergeant Brian Lucas with Internal Affairs, and Paris-based Interpol Agent Angie Flynn.

This case is a bittersweet reunion for Angie with Oscar as besides Oscar's want for Angie to return to Vancouver permanently to work for him as an investigator for his company called Tabula Rasa (which helps those unfairly convicted), he represents Duncan and Bally Anderson, two people of interest in this case as McAllister's estranged son-in-law and daughter.

That estrangement is due to McAllister successfully getting Duncan charged and convicted of sexual interference eighteen years ago when Duncan was nineteen and Bally sixteen, despite the fact of the closeness of Duncan and Bally's ages and their relationship being consensual. That conviction still haunts them to this day, and also affects their son Thomas Anderson as the offspring of a convicted child sexual molester, for which he is constantly taunted.

This case adds a complication to Duncan and Bally's lives as they long told Thomas that his maternal grandfather was dead, not wanting him to know that he was the cause of Duncan and therefore by association their family's problems. Thomas, an aspiring on-air radio DJ, finding out about the role his grandfather played in his family's problems and divulging that to his radio station mentor, Shawn Bailey and Shawn's girlfriend, Lexi may provide the link for those investigating the case.

The ultimate questions become how determined Lexi is to protect herself as the perpetrator of these crimes & how determined Angie is to solve (especially Judge Rodman's murder this second time around) and Angie has a limited amount of time before she needs to head back to her current Interpol job in Paris.
