Last week, The InBetween took a little break in the action because of the Stanley Cup Finals. Unfortunately, next week it will be doing the same exact thing. We don’t think the start-and-stop nature of this show’s schedule is trouble, but what can it do? NBC is airing a primetime debate next week and that’s the sort of thing that will cause most of its content to be preempted. (There is currently a repeat of Ellen’s Game of Games set to air at 8:00 — that’s probably an insurance policy in case the debates end up running late.)
When the NBC show is coming back on the air, it will be on Wednesday, July 3 — which is probably not an ideal situation given the fact that it’s the day before the fourth of July. There are a lot of people who are going to be off doing other things at this point, including shooting off fireworks and also preparing their barbecue grills. Hopefully, there will be at least enough people around to keep the ratings stable given that otherwise, there’s a chance that we could end up seeing this show go the way of Reverie and so many summer shows before it.
So what is coming up in terms of the story? Below, CarterMatt offers up the official The InBetween episode 4 synopsis with some other news when it comes to the future:
07/03/2019 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Wednesday) : Tom (Paul Blackthorne) and Damien (Justin Cornwell) track a mysterious killer who has targeted several kids at the same high school, while Cassie (Harriet Dyer) tries to help a woman solve her own death while her anxious family waits for news about her disappearance.

This is an episode that seems intent on giving us more insight into who some of these people are more so than establishing any further sort of long-term story. There’s nothing in here that we can really grasp onto when it comes to story specifics, so we’re just going to go ahead and enjoy the cases for what they are. Serial-killer stories are often intense, and it seems like that’s a part of what Damien and Tom are forced to deal with. As for Cassie’s own case, hers really offers up a great opportunity to explore something that this show can do that very few other ones can. She can allow people who died to have a sense of closure — this isn’t the first show where a character has worked with a dead person in order to solve a mystery, but when done right, it can be the perfect combination of cool and creepy.
