What’s coming up on The Code episode 12, otherwise known as the finale, tonight? It’s meant to tie together some loose ends from the past eleven episodes, but beyond just that, it’s meant to build up and escalate the story beyond what we’ve seen to date.
What’s happening in “Legit Bad Day” is the legal drama taking a page out of the established crime TV handbook. It’s conventional for these shows to tell a story for an episode or two that is all about a main character finding themselves cornered or accused, and it’s up to some of the other people to try and clear their name. For the episode tonight, this is all flying in the direction of Abe. He’s going to need to figure out how to best help himself — and rely on the help of others — after he is arrested. What’s the charge? Bailing on some fellow soldiers during a mission in Afghanistan years prior. The problem is that some of Abe’s own associates may end up having to prosecute him … or “prosecute” him. In reality, we see it more like them putting on the cover of prosecution while working behind the scenes in order to ensure that he’s okay.
Below, CarterMatt offers up The Code finale synopsis, which has some more information on what’s coming up:
Abe’s colleagues must defend and reluctantly prosecute him when he is arrested and court-martialed for mutiny in regard to a 2010 mission in Afghanistan, where he was one of the only survivors.
If you want to have a better sense of some of what’s happening leading up to Abe’s arrest early on in the episode, the sneak peek below gives you a good sense of that. When you’re someone like Abe, you’re always faced with some sort of problem.
As for whether or not tonight’s finale represents the end of The Code as a series, we would bank on that being the case, unfortunately. We’re going to be discussing the series’ future, but the ratings just aren’t so strong that we have a significant amount of hope in the future.
