When death row prisoner Ricky Parker, scheduled for execution in just a few weeks, tells a documentary filmmaker of the location of a body, the police actually find two bodies and Lockhart Gardner finds itself defending a dead woman's fiancé charged with murder. With the clock ticking down to Parker's execution, the firm finds itself trying to obtain a stay of execution so they can interview him. Kalinda becomes chummy with ASA Dana Lodge who clearly wants information in return. Eli Gold meanwhile works with one of Mickey Gunn's new clients who has a rather embarrassing photo that could cause him election problems. Written by garykmcd

Death Row Was Never So Good ****
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another excellent episode despite the fact that the sidebar story of a young politician in trouble due to raw pictures being distributed of him was nonsensical at best and could have easily been deleted.

That being said, any show dealing with a possible complication of a death-row inmate is always good providing the pacing and excitement are non-stop. This episode was no exception to the rule.

How a death-row inmate can help another person accused of murder is intriguing here. Surprisingly, the person accused of the crime has a relatively benign part in the episode.

Cary shows his mettle here and Archie Panjabi shows that she is definitely bisexual all the way.
