Your Honor Episode 9 Spoilers
In episode 8, Jimmy essentially gives Michael a two-day deadline to secure Carlo’s independence. But to be successful, Michael will have to keep up the façade of being an impartial and unbiased judge. This means that the two fathers will have constant conflict and that Michael will yet again be forced to compromise on his ethics for Adam’s sake. We feel like the judge will somehow target the prosecutor, Fiona, who has successfully “maligned” Carlo’s already aghast reputation.
On the other hand, Adam wants to take a gap year and stay back in New Orleans instead of heading out to New York University. Moreover, he lies to Frannie, the teacher with whom he is having an affair, about his college acceptance. She has already resigned from her job in New Orleans and made plans for the couple for when they would move to the Big Apple. But she then eventually sees Fia and Adam roam hand in hand.
With this in mind, it seems imminent that Frannie will approach Fia at some point in the future and tell her the truth about her brother’s murder and how Adam is the real killer. After all, when he was in love with Frannie, Adam had confessed to her. This will certainly separate the two teenagers. Moreover, given that Charlie talks to Adam about the latter’s girlfriend in episode 8, it is likely that the mayoral candidate will also uncover the truth about Adam’s life in the next episode.
Your Honor Episode 8 Recap
In a conversation with Michael, Sara reveals that she knows that corrupt individuals had conspired against her to get her off Carlo’s trial. Not only has her arrest video gone viral, but she must also go to rehab in order to keep her job and avoid prosecution. Eventually, Michael presides over the case and limits the number of people in his courtroom due to the spread of the virus. As the trial progresses, the prosecutor displays Carlo as a racist and dangerous man, whereas Carlo’s lawyer makes use of the self-defense argument.
Lee reaches out to Eugene and tries to help him, but he is quite loyal to Little Mo as the young boy is dependant on the gang senior for his survival. Adam tells Frannie that he did not get into NYU, but that is not the truth. Michael comes home and opens his son’s acceptance letter. The proud father invites everyone for a celebratory dinner, which is when Adam announces that he wants to take a gap year and stay back in New Orleans.
It is at this event that Jimmy privately “gives” Michael a deadline to secure Carlo’s release and freedom. Later, Michael goes to Frannie, hoping that the teacher could talk to Adam about college. Frannie then spots Fia and Adam together and starts realizing the truth. Carlo’s trial continues, and a medical expert testifies that Kofi’s head had been bashed into the wall six times with brute force. Michael also replaces a juror later.
