Defending Jacob Episode 7 Spoilers

‘Defending Jacob’ episode 7 is titled ‘Job.’ From the title, it is quite unclear what the episode could be about. However, the sixth episode ends with the Barbers going to the trial. Hence, one can anticipate that the show’s flashback-flashforward narrative style would end. To be clearer, the story should progress just linearly henceforth since the “flashforward” part of the storytelling involved Andy narrating the events of his household at the trial.

The seventh episode comes packed with tons of promise as the trial is what the miniseries has been leading up to. However, one might not expect a decision to be announced so soon. The show still has one more episode to go. However, viewers may be in for a shock. There is nothing substantial that could save Jacob so far, except for Matt’s revelation about Patz mentioning Rifkin.

Yet, the trial should be the source of some intense drama. It will certainly be interesting to see how Neal approaches the case and tries to frame Jacob. One thing is for certain though: the stakes are higher than they ever were for the Apple TV+ show as the penultimate episode approaches.
