Storyline

Believing in Sean McBride's guilt Clive Reader withdraws from the case whilst in court Martha's passionate, if biased, speeches lead to accusations of 'performing'. Increasingly the evidence suggests that Sean was indeed the owner of the gun which killed Monk though, as the trial continues, Billy brings in Micky Joy to high-light police corruption and present Sean as a victim of a dishonest inspector. After the jury delivers its verdict Billy is exonerated of the sexual harassment charge as, much to his annoyance, his terminal illness is revealed and the chambers members vote on who should be their new head. Having withdrawn her application Martha is not present to join in the celebrations. Written by don @ minifie-1

Very badly written
28 May 2019 | by sprezzaturabooksSee all my reviews

This is a terrible last episode. Martha is completely out of character. The ending is totally false and not believable. I think the creators studied the Soprano's last episode and tried to make it as nebulous as possible. Her old flame, which she was defending should not and could not exert the extreme reaction he had on Martha. She was much more intimate with Mr. Reader but stayed aloof from him. The Billy sickness was way overdone and totally cliche. And then, at the end they all so happen to be on the same bridge. Great actors, bad writing.
