Episode Synopsis: MEMPHIS BEAT “The Things We Carry” Season 2 Episode 5 – When the Landmark Movie Theater, a beloved Memphis attraction, mysteriously burns down, Rice decides to sharpen her detective skills by working the case under Whitehead. Meanwhile, Dwight and Paula drive to New Orleans to talk to the man who shot Dwight’s father. Dwight is determined to put to rest his suspicions that his father may have been a dirty cop.
Show Description: The show centers on Dwight Hendricks (Lee), a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection to the city, a passion for blues music and a close relationship with his mother. He is “the keeper of Memphis,” a Southern gentleman who is protective of his fellow citizens, reverential of the city’s history and deeply rooted in its blues music scene.
Despite his impeccable instincts as a detective, Dwight’s loose, relaxed style of police work rubs his demanding new boss, Lt. Tanya Rice (Woodard), the wrong way. But Dwight may eventually win her over to a Memphis state of mind, especially when he takes the stage at his favorite hangout to perform a legendary song or two.
