Episode 6: "Walk into the Light" (Series finale)

Debut date: SUNDAY, AUGUST 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

As 72-year-old former police officer Joe DeAngelo's arrest unfolds in real time, chilling facts materialize that illuminate Michelle's prescience in her book's epilogue, "Letter to an Old Man." Researcher Paul Haynes and true crime writer Billy Jensen try to learn everything they can about DeAngelo. Exclusive interviews with DeAngelo's relatives reveal early family trauma, and his double life as a suburban dad and serial predator. His ex-fiancé also details the behavior and warning signs that lead her to end their engagement. Having finally faced their attacker in court, several survivors meet for the first time and gain strength in their shared desire to confront their pain, move forward, and advocate for all sexual assault survivors. When Patton Oswalt, Jensen, and Haynes connect with survivors and McNamara's fellow citizen detective Melanie Barbeau, Michelle's absence is deeply felt.

Directed by Liz Garbus.

DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, May 2020) I'LL BE GONE IN THE DARK, a six-part documentary series debuting SUNDAY, JUNE 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), with new episodes airing subsequent Sundays at the same time, is based on the book of the same name and explores writer Michelle McNamara's investigation into the dark world of a violent predator she dubbed the Golden State Killer. The series is directed by Academy Award nominee and Emmy(R) winning director Liz Garbus (HBO's "Who Killed Garrett Phillips," "Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper") and produced by Story Syndicate. Additional directors on the series include Elizabeth Wolff, Myles Kane and Josh Koury. I'LL BE GONE IN THE DARK will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners' streaming platforms. Terrorizing California in the 1970s and '80s, the Golden State Killer is responsible for 50 home-invasion rapes and 12 murders. This series gives voice to the survivors and their families, documenting an era when sex crimes were often dismissed or hidden in shame. A timely inquiry into our macabre preoccupation with true crime and a cautionary tale of the dangerous lure of addiction, the series is a riveting meditation on obsession and loss, chronicling the unrelenting path of a mysterious killer and the fierce determination of one woman to bring the case to light.
