Juror #7 Joe McUsic, who runs a halfway house, drops dead of cyanide-poisoning during Otis Williams's high-profile trial for the murder of heiress Lyla Addison. Juror #4 Tony Mueller runs as he believed Otis's cousin, Wardell, poisoned Joe and he'd be next. Wardell claims he is being framed just as the cops are trying to frame Otis. The cyanide came not from the court house vending machine coffee but was released from a capsule. The plot thickens when it was found that Joe McUsic used a bribe to be put into the jury pool. The case is complicated as there doesn't appear to be any link between Joe McUsic, Otis Williams or Lyla Addison.

Beckett says that 'Forbidden Planet' was the inspiration for 'Star Wars'. Forbidden Planet has a quasi-military ship on a long term deep space mission stop by a xeno-archeological station researching ancient alien technology. The captain, doctor, and science officer get pulled into a life and death crisis and the captain gets the girl. This inspired Star Trek. See more
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the evidence tells us, well beyond a reasonable doubt, that Otis Williams is guilty.
