What I’m Watching: Your Honor

Your Honor: Season 2, Episode 5 “Chapter Fifteen” (B)

Well, here’s a twist I didn’t see coming, and one that doesn’t jump out at me as anything I would have suspected. Michael apparently felt like he didn’t need to be in a position to cooperate anymore after reading Charlie in and seeing how his best friend was ready to work with Olivia to ensure his own deal, and that wasn’t a great start given her newfound alliance with Nancy. Being arrested for his suspected involvement in the death of his wife feels like it came from out of nowhere, but I’ll be curious to see if that has anything at all to do with the Baxter family or if it’s entirely disconnected. The biggest Baxter family issue at the moment seems to be the impending baptism of the baby, which may be happening with Carlo, a moderately-redeemed character in comparison to his parents, as the godfather. Jimmy is likely to snap sooner or later if his father-in-law sticks around, though he’s likely also working up something else with Gina that may not involve Jimmy as the one in charge. Big Mo is making tough decisions too in terms of who she’s supporting, and somehow Eugene seems to have dug himself out of the hole and is now in her good graces. But it’s never a good idea to underestimate, as Michael can now attest to, the consequences of decisions made long ago since they may well come back to haunt you even after it seems like they’re completely put to bed and forgotten.
