Storyline

A former mobster, Natan Carlino, is accused of murdering a priest. Alex Winthrop's firm represents the Carlino family and flies from New York to Atlanta to handle the case. Alex, who was introduced near the beginning of season three in a two part episode The Ambassador, meets with Carlino, who requests representation from a more seasoned lawyer. Alex promises to get his good friend, Ben Matlock, to work as his co-counsel. It takes a $20 hot dog to get Ben on board, but once Ben and Michelle start assisting Alex, it becomes clear that this murder was not as open and shut as it appeared. This episode takes some interesting twists along the way. Written by Heelinva
