With this story, like Serial, etc, it's guesswork to know what the direction or conclusion would be. From the beginning, there was death involved, crime, and those elements were hinted at through the fifth episode, which is why I connected it to those shows.
Now that I'm done and see the whole thing, I realize, it is a biography, or more like a funeral speech, of a remarkable individual. I am so pleased to have heard it. I'm sure there will be reports later about some of the dangling threads.
