Backstrom Season Finale 2015

Backstrom Season 1 Episode 13 “Rock Bottom” airs Thursday April 30 at 9:00 PM on FOX. In tonight’s season finale episode, when a Native American is found dead under a bridge on the Wabacooche Indian reservation, Amy’s (guest star Sarah Chalke) new boyfriend and Indian Reserve Police Captain, Jesse Rocha (guest star Adam Beach), wants in on the case. Backstrom then learns that Indian meth-king Norwest (guest star Gregory Cruz), of Cooch County, is a suspect in the case, and he is convinced his father, Cooch County Sheriff Blue Backstrom (guest star Robert Forster), knows about Norwest’s drug dealings, leaving Backstrom to make a difficult decision. Meanwhile, in order to keep his job with the S.C.U., Backstrom must impress Dr. Deb (guest star Rizwan Manji).

Show Summary: From creator/executive producer Hart Hanson (BONES), BACKSTROM is a subversive and comic crime procedural about an unhealthy, offensive, irascible – albeit brilliant – detective who sees the worst in everyone, and he’s usually right.

Detective Lieutenant EVERETT BACKSTROM (Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson, “The Office”) is a man with no filter. After a five-year banishment to the traffic division for offensive behavior, he has returned from disgrace to lead Portland’s newly minted Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.).Tasked with navigating the city’s most sensitive and serious cases, he must solve each crime as he tries, and fails, to change his own self-destructive behavior.

Whether outsmarting his foes, including his ex-fiancee (recurring guest star Sarah Chalke, “Scrubs”), or guiding his eccentric team of investigators and civilians, featuring Dennis Haysbert (“24,” “The Unit”), Genevieve Angelson (“House of Lies”), Kristoffer Polaha (“Ringer,” “Life Unexpected”), Page Kennedy (“Blue Mountain State,” “Weeds”), Beatrice Rosen (“The Dark Knight”) and Thomas Dekker (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Backstrom always manages to crack the case.

But his highly unorthodox process invariably leads to clashes with everyone around him, from his fellow law enforcement colleagues, to the Fire Department, to Portland’s local charities, to the city’s drag queens, to half of Chinatown and an entire Indian Reservation. When Backstrom’s investigating, nobody comes out unscathed.
