The Last Thing He Told Me season 1 episode 6 picks up from the previous episode’s cliffhanger, where Grady finally tracks down Hannah and warns her about the imminent danger. The US Marshal tells Hannah that Owen is caught up with the mob and their notorious lawyer, Nicholas Bell, who happens to be Bailey’s grandfather.
The US Marshal explains that Owen had helped to put Nicholas and 8 other high-level members of the Campano crime organization behind bars. Owen had escaped that life with apparent ease, but his new business venture backfired badly, making the headline news.
Now that the mob has his new identity, Owen is forced to run. Interestingly, Owen had kept a log of all of The Shop and Avett’s dealings, in case they were ever investigated.
Records prove that he tried to fix their mistakes, but the FBI got to them before he succeeded. Owen chose to run and protect his family, instead of going to the FBI himself.
