Summary[edit | edit source]

It's a bad day for the jurors when Jessica is the foreperson of the jury hearing the case of a man claiming self-defense in the death of an enraged husband.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The plot is inspired by the film 12 Angry Men (1957).

Last acting performance of Tom Ewell.

First episode with two murders in which both of them were committed by two different people.

Victim(s): Stephanie Reynolds & Cliff Anderson.

Killer(s): Mark Lee Reynolds & Becky Anderson

Cause of death: Smothering with a pillow; blunt force trauma from fireplace poker.

Motive: To continue his affair with Becky and not divorce his wife, therefore keeping her money; self-defense.

Goofs[edit | edit source]

Basic EMT protocol is to never move a victim of trauma without first installing a cervical collar (neck brace). This is always done before placing victims on a backboard.
