Defending Jacob Episode 6 Spoilers

‘Defending Jacob’ episode 6 is titled ‘Wishful Thinking’ and it is hard to predict what the episode might be about from the title. Perhaps, the title might refer to Andy’s attempts at finding Ben’s real killer fail. Maybe, Derek is proven innocent. It could also be Leonard Patz who is proven innocent. Moreover, both of them could be proven innocent. Hence, Andy’s hope of finding the real killer and proving Jacob’s innocence might turn out to be “wishful thinking” on his part.

Apart from that, Andy’s father agrees to give his DNA sample so that the “murder gene” can be tested. The results for that could be declared in the sixth episode. That would certainly be interesting. Moreover, Jacob calls Sarah a slut in the fifth episode. In the sixth episode, Jacob might feel bad about that and apologize.

Furthermore, Matt will most probably reveal the truth about his and Leonard Patz’s groping incident. Matt does not say anything to Andy despite calling him twice at night, in the fifth episode. Thus, Matt should find the courage to tell Andy what he wanted to, in the sixth episode. It would be interesting to see whether that helps Jacob’s case or not.
