Alicia and Diane represent Eddie Fornam who is about to be executed for two murders that he still insists he did not commit. When the medical technicians are unable to find a vein suitable for administering the lethal injection - they try for over two hours - Diane demands they delay the execution as Eddie's rights are being violated. They contact famed lawyer Barry Scheck to use Eddie's case as evidence in his own class action suit in the courts. They also discover that the snitch who testified at Eddie's trial is alive, contrary to what they had been led to believe. Meanwhile, Alicia and Cary Agos are proceeding with their plan to open their own firm. She wants it kept all hush-hush but word begins to leak out. It gets particularly uncomfortable when the other partners ask her to get information from Carey on what may be happening. Written by garykmcd

Everything is Ending, or is it about to begin? 5.1 ****
29 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This opening episode of the season highlights a stinging indictment of capital punishment. Inability to find veins on a convicted drug killer and transporting certain drugs through the Post Office invariably saves the guy from the ultimate.

Chris Noth is now Governor-elect and Eli already perceives a potential problem with Noth's assistant. She is just too pretty and Eli wants her kicked upstairs so as to avoid gossip.

Alicia, who is planning to flee with Cary and the other 4 year associates to start their own democratic firm, sees the hard work and dedication put in by Diane and Will in their attempt to stop the execution of the convicted murderer.
