Appearances and Mentions

The Great Wall

  • Townsend and his partner Curtis Cooper were extorting money from the people of Chinatown. He is racist and narrow-minded about them, although it's unknown if Cooper felt the same way.
  • After raping Mai-Li, Townsend found himself being confront at the bar by Constable Cooper. Drawing him outside, the two began to argue, and he accidentally pushed him into some glass, causing a gaping wound in his leg. Using his shoe lace as a tourniquet, he tried to save him, but Cooper died.
  • Desperate to save his own skin, he stages a crime scene and plants Cooper's watch in Feng Choy's shop. When William Murdoch investigates, he tails him (along with Constable Holder) to keep tabs on the Detective. At the celebration of the police games, Murdoch publicly confronts him and accuses him of murdering his partner; He also brings Mai-Li (who points to Townsend as the one who had raped her). His superior demanded to know if this is true, to which Townsend tries to justify both the murder and the rape to his police comrades. Unfortunately for Townsend, the other officers (even the racist Constable Holder) are openly disgusted to the point that his superior tells Murdoch and Brackenreid to take him away.
  • Townsend is arrested and will likely hang (confirmed ep.511).
