Bl..dy H.ll is the sixteenth episode of Season 9 and the one hundred thirtieth of the series. It first aired on March 7, 2016.

Summary Edit

Murdoch and Brackenreid risk their careers to uncover police corruption yet again when the arrest of the pawn broker Eddie Crawford for selling stolen goods leads them to suspect on-going racketeering at Station House No. 5.

On her way to work, Miss James rushes to the aid of a man (named Jake) who falls off a ladder and has a piece of glass pierce his chest, but upon removing the shard Jake dies, devastating Rebecca's confidence. Not even Dr. Ogden can assuage Miss James' shaken courage and self-doubt of becoming a doctor.

Back at Station House No. 5, Murdoch and Brackenreid's main suspect, the wily Chief Constable Davis, successfully stays ahead of the two and, with the help of a mystery woman, it is Brackenreid who is framed for racketeering and arrested. Understandably, Brackenreid takes the job in City Records to keep his police pension and his family out of the poor house. Mr. Dilton Dilbert, the head of City Records whose 'Swear Jar' is 10 cents richer within seconds after the former Inspector joins his office, gives Brackenreid an indexing task that fortuitously uncovers the deep corruption within the city. While compiling evidence from city acquisition, Dilbert is struck down and the papers taken. Murdoch and Brackenreid turn to the honorable Alderman Hubbard, formerly of Toronto Board of Control, but he can't go to the Mayor with only suspicions. Luckily, Dr. Ogden finds that there was a Hungarian admitted to the asylum after a suicide attempt, the mystery woman's name is Vidor Szabó.

They set up another sting to prove Davis, who’d been shaking down businesses in Station House No. 5’s territory since he was a lowly constable, is the one in charge of the racketeering ring. Bloody hell, indeed.
