Bosch: Legacy Season 2 Review - Titus Welliver is back wreaking havoc


Titus Welliver continues to deliver in the titular role of Harry Bosch and Bosch: Legacy Season 2 is another can’t-miss chapter of the series.

For seven seasons, Detective Harry Bosch would take down criminals on Prime Video. The world couldn’t get enough of Harry, and the series returned with Bosch: Legacy on Amazon Freevee. Season 2 picks up from right where we left off in the Season 1 finale, with Harry on the hunt to find his daughter Maddie, who a serial killer took.

Harry Bosch is based on the character in Michael Connelly’s books and the second season of Bosch: Legacy focuses on Connelly’s 2015 book, The Crossing. The book follows Bosch taking on a case looking into the police department and making himself a target.

Bosch: Legacy Season 2 review and plot summary

The season doesn’t skip a beat in picking up from the end of season 1, where Bosch walked into his daughter’s place, realizing that she had been kidnapped. Bosch sets out on a mission to find his daughter, and a mysterious man decides to get into a game of chess with Bosch and the LAPD.

Although Maddie’s kidnapping is the main point of the first few episodes, the show doesn’t stay there long, and that’s where the writers of the series fumbled a massive opportunity.

David Denman plays Kurt Dockwiler, the infamous serial killer raping and murdering women. Denman plays Kurt perfectly in a cold, calculating, and manipulative way that they could’ve sustained an entire season as a chess game against Harry. Instead, the show’s creative team rushed it and closed the chapter after a few short episodes.

That said, the rest of the season provides plenty of twists and turns that keep you on edge because Harry Bosch vs. the police department gets ugly, dirty, and wild — fast. There is a reason Bosch: Legacy was renewed for a second season, and that’s because it has an incredible character at the forefront in Harry Bosch.

What Titus Welliver brings to the table as Harry Bosch is reminiscent of what Micheal Chiklis brought to Vic Mackey in The Shield. This larger-than-life character rides the fine line of likeability because of how they do their job. Welliver was made for the role of Harry Bosch and has upped the ante by handling the role in this “post-retirement” aspect of Bosch’s career with perfection.

Is Bosch: Legacy Season 2 worth watching?

Like the seven seasons of Bosch, Bosch: Legacy remains one of the best shows from Amazon in the streaming giant’s history. If you are a fan of Harry Bosch and his crew wreaking havoc, this season is a must-watch because it’s vastly different from anything the series has given us before.

While Bosch: Legacy closes some doors, with the season already renewed for a third season, nothing would make fans happier than seeing the needed Harry Bosch/Mickey Haller crossover the world deserves.
