As recently as eight weeks ago, the most stable relationship on American Crime was the chummy dynamic between Headmaster Leslie Graham and Coach Dan Sullivan.
But in our exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s season finale (ABC, 10/9c), that camaraderie between colleagues is nowhere to be found.
In the scene embedded above, Timothy Hutton’s basketball coach pays Leslie a visit at Leyland, begging for some help with his daughter’s recent legal ordeal — but he quickly realizes that cashing in favors with the administration isn’t as easy as it once was.
According to showrunner John Ridley, Wednesday’s season ender will bring “some kind of closure” to each lingering storyline, though he can’t guarantee a strictly happy ending for everyone.
“These are much more emotional resolutions. We wanted to tell a story that had a horizon at the end of it, and we think we did,” Ridley tells us. “We are moving toward a sense of justice. People tend to get what they deserve, but what’s deserved differs for each individual.”
