Defending Jacob Episode 8 Spoilers

‘Defending Jacob’ episode 8 is titled ‘After.’ The title of the episode indicates the fact that it might cover the aftermath. The penultimate episode ends with Patz writing a note to Ben’s parents admitting his guilt. Now, it would be interesting to see how this plays out. In all probability, Jacob should be let off the hook because of that. However, that depends entirely on what actually happens with the note. Does Patz actually deliver it to the Rifkins? There is also a probability that the note never reaches Ben’s parents.

However, given the title, there is a higher probability that the note does reach the Rifkins. As mentioned earlier, ‘After’ will most likely take a look at the aftermath of the events. It will probably show how the community finally starts to accept the Barbers again. However, there is still the mystery surrounding the gangster that Andy had observed keeping an eye on them. There will certainly be some development regarding that front. Otherwise, it would have been frustrating set-up without any pay-off.

Lastly, the final episode might see the Barber family reuniting. Laurie and Andy are seen having a major argument towards the end of the seventh episode. Plus, Andy also asks Jacob whether he committed the murder.
