A hip-hop star goes on trial for the murder of a nightclub patron who accused him of being a sellout
The usual post-trial deep reflection annoyed me this episode. They saw all the loyalty that the bodyguard had in refusing to give up either his boss or his boss' girlfriend, the rapper's desire to make sure his girlfriend didn't go to prison and his guilt about the fact that it was only his concern for his image and bringing a weapon that led to the murder in the first place and him blaming himself for her actions, and then finally the girlfriend who just couldn't deal with it and tried to trust that the rapper would be able to beat the charges and finally confessing when the lawyers convinced her that the rapper was going to spend the rest of his life in prison and all they took from it was that it was about people putting two careers ahead of justice?
Were they prosecuting the same case that I was watching them prosecute? It really seems like they missed the point and forgot that it was not actually about the victim calling someone a sell-out. I don't even remember if Serena, Jack, or Nora said it but I'm going to assume it was Nora or Serena because getting things epically wrong like that is more in their characters than Jack's.
