Read the season 1 review of Black Bird.

Apple TV+ has released the first two episodes of Black Bird back to back, delivering an intriguing and engaging opening gambit. The series finds drug dealer Jimmy Keene in a desperate scheme to elicit a confession from serial killer Larry Hall. But can he get the confession in time and did Larry actually commit those murders? Here’s what happened in episode two of Black Bird:

  • Larry talks in detail about his vivid dreams. Brian presents him with a photo of Jessica Roach, the girl they found dead, and Larry asks to go home.
  • Undeterred, Brian brings in the FBI to help with the confession. Brian watches from behind a two-way mirror as Larry talks of his nightmares and burying women.
  • Jimmy plans for his transfer, with Lauren digging into the psychology behind Larry’s attacks. They discuss women and childhood, trying to find common ground between the two criminals.
  • Larry confesses to killing Jessica and struggling to find a place to bury her. He talks of folding the victim’s clothing and burying the other murdered women. Larry supplies information that isn’t public knowledge, which can’t be denied. He signs the confession, even though he seems surprised by what he reads.
  • Jimmy speaks to his father, who has had a stroke and is in a bad way. The step-mom tells Jimmy he doesn’t have long, his father is weak and forgetful.
  • Lauren talks to Jimmy about Larry’s jobs as a janitor and gravedigger. Then they discuss Larry’s brother Gary, his strongest defender. Lauren advises that he be like a brother to Larry. Jimmy gets the job and transfers.
  • Jimmy is warned not to get too complacent or to commit any further crimes. He backs out at the last minute, but is manipulated into going ahead with the plan anyway. The drug dealer is brought in as an arms dealer in civilian clothing, not to raise any suspicion.
  • Larry is angry that he was manipulated into a confession and his lawyers use this as their line of attack. Lauren and co don’t have long to prove his guilt before Larry is released from prison.
