Canadians are doing good shows! Endgame premiered last week on a show about Russian Arkady Balagan is a world champion chess master. He is a brilliant but arrogant man. Watching his Canadian fiancée Rosemary Venturi murdered in Vancouver outside the Huxley Hotel – where he was performing in some chess matches and also residing at the time – has turned his life upside down. That incident has made him unable or unwilling to leave the comfort and safety of the hotel. He is also unable to pay the mounting hotel bills, which he unabashedly racks up. He starts to use his sharp analytical skills to solve police cases for a fee to help pay those bills. But his newly developed agoraphobia means that he needs to enlist the help of anyone around him – mostly groupies and hotel staff, the latter which includes those who are trying to get him to pay up or kick him out of the hotel – to do the actual legwork. Despite the urging of Rosemary’s sister Pippa Venturi, the case that Arkady is unwilling to get involved in is Rosemary’s death.
What is Endgame about? Plot
Agoraphobic chess champion, Arkady Balagan, is on the verge of eviction from the luxury hotel he calls home when the hotel’s bartender, Danni, enlists his help to find a missing boy. One of the boy’s distraught fathers is willing to pay for Balagan’s insights. Unable to leave the hotel, Balagan seeks the help of his number-one fan, grad-student and amateur chess player, Sam, and his savvy chambermaid, Alcina, to help him solve the mystery. Was the boy taken by one of his feuding fathers or was there a more sinister motive for the abduction? He is working against the clock to find the missing boy and collect his payment before he is forced out of the hotel. Meanwhile, Pippa, the sister of Balagan’s murdered fiancée, Rosemary, attempts to draw him into investigating her murder. Still grieving, Balagan finds it too painful to pursue.
