In episode three of The Bridge sex and death continue to be the main theme of the show. Sex has actually been responsible for the death of one character. The teenager Kyle, whose interest in Eleanor Naught ended very badly for the boy, paid the ultimate price for his “obsession.”
The Bridge: Ghost of a Flea begins with a mostly naked woman who is washing blood off her tattooed body who is aided by the teen boy who found her in last week’s episode; later in the show Ruiz cranks things up and Cross admits to having sex with the brother of her sister’s killer. Lt. Wade and the DEA strike up an alliance and Frye, along with Adriana, discover just how deadly the cartel money really is.
