Glad to see that this one is (hopefully) getting resolved. I do find it interesting that Jefferson is being charged with kidnapping, as well as murder. If Roger hired Jefferson to stage a kidnapping, why are they charging him with that since he murdered Roger before he could stage it?! I am still leaning towards Roger not being involved in any staged kidnapping plot, and that this was a crime of opportunity. It'll be interesting to see if a connection between Roger and Jefferson is established.

Kidnapping charge is probably for DJ.

If you freeze-frame the extortion letter when it's displayed onscreen in the UM segment, there's a line where the writer mentions removing his mask before shooting Roger, so that he would know who wanted to kill him. But of course, if Roger and the intruder were in on this together, that makes no sense. The way the events at the house unfolded do seem more like a robbery than a revenge scheme, so that line about the mask doesn't sound like something the actual perpetrator would have wrote.

Yeah, even though it seems like a minor detail, the cup of coffee is one of the main things which made me think Roger didn't orchestrate the whole scheme. Why would he prepare coffee for himself if he knew someone was about to enter his house and stage a robbery? While I do think it's possible Roger arranged a meeting with the masked man in his garage for other reasons, such as blackmail, I don't know why he would do so while D.J. was still in the house.

I still believe that the gunman attempted to fire off a warning shot at Roger when he attempted to flee, but did not expect the bullet to ricochet off the banister and strike Roger in the arm. Since Roger was not going to be able to withdraw any money from the bank with a gunshot wound, the intruder decided to finish him off and kill him.
1. The tape on the glasses was suspicious to me because he had his contacts in and his vision would get blurry. That was the main reason I thought he was involved. However, I'm coming around towards Roger not being involved either.

2. 7:00 isn't that far off from 6:15 am. It could be he was taking a lazy day and not going in until later. He could have opened the garage door in preparation to start his car before leaving. Some mornings, if I'm not brewing coffee for the road, I'm still drinking my coffee when I go to warm up my car. Since he regularly had a 6:15 leave time, perhaps the killer were waiting for him to leave and got tired of waiting?

3. This makes the most sense to me. Reading that letter in its entirety, why would the killer take the time to take off his mask to show who was committing the crime if they had a meet already scheduled?
