What I’m Watching: The Night Of

The Night Of: Season 1, Episode 6 “Samson and Delilah” (B)

One thing is becoming increasingly clear as Stone and Chandra prepare for the trial by tracking down leads and pursuing their own investigations - there is more than reasonable doubt to suggest that Naz may not have perpetrated the crime of which he is accused. Unfortunately, the new theories being floated won’t necessarily hold up, especially since we saw Paul Sparks’ Don’s response to the news of his stepdaughter’s death, and he seemed genuinely shocked. Now, all aspersions are cast upon him since he’s a personal trainer who tends to meet women twice his age and then con them out of their money. Naz isn’t doing much to make himself seem innocent, starting with letting Freddy dress him for his day in court and having to switch shirts with Stone of all people to not look as guilty. Hooray for Stone, who finally found a health professional who was able to resolve his foot problems enough for him to proudly wearing a shiny pair of dress shoes without any trouble. I’m glad to see that plotline appear to be resolved for now. He’s pretty distracted by that at the moment as Chandra seems to be sticking to the age-old argument that she is not burdened to prove anything about her client’s innocence, which to me hardly makes for the strongest case. Naz might look harmless enough, but he’s definitely getting accustomed to life on the inside in a way that is unlikely to help him win over the hearts of the jury.
