The Premise Episodes 1 & 2 Recap
The premiere episode of ‘The Premise’ is titled ‘Social Justice Sex Tape.’ It follows Eve Stone, a young lawyer who works for Rayna Bradshaw. They are working to prove the innocence of Darren Williams, a black man charged with assault against a police officer. Eve receives an anonymous email with a video that could prove Darren’s innocence. The only problem is that it is a sex tape that happens to capture what transpired between Darren and the police.
Ethan Streiber, the man who submitted the sex tape and is the subject of it, meets the lawyers. He even flaunts his social awareness in front of them. But in court, the sex tape is scrutinized and dismissed on the grounds of being unreliable evidence. Therefore, Eve and Rayna are compelled to expose other items from Ethan’s phone, which include more sex tapes and, ironically, bigoted social media comments. The sex tape leaks and Ethan must face the embarrassment. However, the episode ends on a positive note as Darren is proved innocent.
The second episode is titled ‘Moment of Silence’ and focuses on Chase Milbrandt, a father who recently lost his daughter to gun violence. He applies for a job as a PR Director at the National Gun Lobby. At work, Chase befriends Aaron and the two bond. However, when Aaron learns of Chase’s tragic past, he begins to suspect the man’s motives. Chase delivers a moving argument about the pros and cons of gun laws impressing his boss.
But Chase seems to be unraveling, so Aaron begins to keep a close watch on him. Soon Chase gets an opportunity to do a live broadcast and asks Aaron not to attend. However, the latter still decides to be present. During the broadcast, Chase suddenly stands up and reaches into his pocket but is shot by the vigilant security. It turns out Chase was only reaching out for a picture of his daughter.
