Young Assassins
9 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode marked the first of two appearances by Jonathan Cake as Marcus Woll the kind of smarmy defense lawyer that lawyer jokes are made about. But this guy is no laughing matter as the second episode showed very clearly.

After a stint in the DA's office Cake now is a very expensive criminal attorney who is in court representing three juveniles who are charged as adults in the killing of Susan Pellegrino. This woman an interior designer by day makes a nice untaxed income moving drugs big time for a Mexican drug cartel. But I won't tell you the reason why she's hit. That's something you have to see for yourselves.

And the shooters are these three Chicano kids, spirited away from bordertowns and given training as assassins. That's why they're being charged as adults.

One of them Mario Quinonez, Jr. is being offered a deal by Linus Roache to turn and being encouraged by his parents as well to take the deal. Still the cartel and Cake have their own methods of persuasion.

Cake and Quinonez are both memorable in this episode.
