What I’m Watching: Goliath

Goliath: Season 2, Episode 6 “Two Cinderellas” (B-)

It’s been difficult to get through this season because it seems that, no matter how hard the good guys try, they’re dealt brutal blow after brutal blow, each of which feels like overkill to suppress something that too many people already know about it but are hopeless to prove to the greater public. Julio was going to go free even after Roman was killed because Hakeem was convinced that he wasn’t responsible, but by the time Patty arrived at his cell, he had been forced to write a confession and then set up to appear as if he had committed suicide. Roman’s family being killed seemed like an unnecessary cruelty, one that this show isn’t likely to touch unless it ends up being the turning point in a case that might somehow start to implicate Gabriel if Billy can bother to realize that he was being paraded out of the country just so that all of this could happen without his being present. Marisol does seem to be attached to Billy, and maybe she’ll save him and betray her brother in the process, though that long walk through the fields that she saw him take in the final moments of the episode don’t convey optimism. The flashback to JT losing a client to the electric chair linked to his last-ditch efforts to save Julio in this hour, and I’m wondering if he’s going to be part of whatever looks like a solution in the final two episodes of this season.
