What I’m Watching: Your Honor

Your Honor: Season 1, Episode 4 “Part Four” (B)

So Kofi is now dead, and all we saw was that eerie introduction at the end of the previous episode and a bloodied Carlo being scolded by his father for causing trouble with just a few days left on his sentence. Sherriff Royce’s primary concern was not having to report homicides happening in his jail, and so he was more than happy to encourage the Voltaire-quoting coroner to spin a different story that didn’t involve a questionable end for Kofi. The car has now been scrapped, and it’s just a matter of how quickly Adam’s conscience and the growing web of people aware that the car was involved in the hit-and-run that killed Rocco deduce what actually happened. As if this show’s cast wasn’t impressive already, we got the addition of Margo Martindale, an Emmy winner for “Justified” and “The Americans,” as Elisabeth, Michael’s mother-in-law. She utilized her influence to make Adam’s principal feel incompetent and unworthy of making important decisions, and she was particularly unkind towards Lee when she stopped by and Charlie made her come in to sit down at the family dinner table. I was most nervous about the fact that everyone was touching the pictures with dirty hands from the New Orleans feast, but it was also worrisome that Michael’s presence at the notification was mentioned so casually in a way that’s sure to upset Charlie and pique Nancy’s interest. After having a laugh at his wife’s expense, Jimmy got serious with his daughter, who we almost saw interact with Adam, and blowing up Kofi’s family’s house was a sure sign that he’s going to do whatever he can to make everyone pay, even if they’re not actually the ones responsible.
