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

Trivia

Final regular appearance of Kene Holliday as Tyler Hudson. Holliday, despite being three months sober at this point in time, was fired due to his erratic on-set behavior and failings to show up for filming various episodes in the past, caused, in turn, by his substance abuse issues at the time.
