After spending the weekend in jail, Erich Blunt is arraigned for the murder of Cindy Strauss and her unborn fetus. He pleads not guilty and is released on $10 million bail. His lawyer, Warren Daniels, looks to put the blame on Cindy's ex-husband Mark. Jeremy Leonard tells Terry about his encounter with Erich over his lawsuit. Later, Jeremy takes a video of his nemesis at the Burning Man festival in Nevada. It all comes back to haunt Erich at his preliminary hearing. Meanwhile, Hildy is interviewed over the shooting. The dead man's widow denies her husband had a knife and threatened Hildy. D-Hop, who has clearly been manipulated by his mom's lawyer, agrees with her. Terry has a chat with the boy who seems to set things straight. Written by garykmcd
