Unfathomable
25 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

An accident involving a faulty crane could be criminally negligent homicide. But the key witness that Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson uncover is foreman Michael Kelly and Kelly's got troubles of his own. His wife killed a home health aide and she's not especially forthcoming.

The key here is their disabled daughter who may be undergoing a controversial procedure the equivalent of sterilization to keep her from ever having puberty. If that happens she will become far more difficult to manage.

What Kelly and wife Geraldine Hughes are going through is unfathomable. But for reasons that are not really made clear Linus Roache is being a total jerk on this case. He blows up an allocution that Hughes gives because he feels she's not giving the true reasons. She's really not totally forthcoming, but a win is a win.

In the end Sam Waterston has to humiliate him. Not the best of their stories.
