White Dragon season 1 episode 4 recap


Is David the killer on White Dragon?

Jonah receives a call from Arthur saying there’s an “opportunity” to get Megan’s story out on White Dragon.  The supposed opportunity turns out to come from Xo International, whom Arthur tries to convince to let Jonah tell his story while Xo is out campaigning.  The idea behind it is that doing so will embarrass Xo’s political opponent who is friends with the Chief of Police and win Xo some political points. Xo turns this proposal down flat and Jonah angrily leaves once he realizes the whole thing is a cynical political ploy.

Rachel, having been present at the meeting, follows Jonah outside to give her condolences about Megan.  She also admits to having known Megan saying they both started in Hong Kong around the same time. Jonah then realizes he recognizes her from a photo of her and Megan together. Rachel then mentions she and Megan eventually drifted apart because of their respective husbands.  She offers to meet Jonah for lunch to tell him what she can and perhaps privately move the police investigation along.

Meanwhile, David notices the business card of Robin Liu, the lawyer who spoke to Lau in the last episode.  Lau claims she’s interviewing for a college project, though David isn’t buying it, not that Lau particularly cares.  Jonah later tries calling David for any new information but David acts suspiciously elusive.
