This episode was certainly one of the best of the series. However I think I would have rated it a 9 if it was not for John stones closing speech. This is absolutely incredible and for me one of the best bits of court room entertainment ever filmed. The scene is very powerful to the viewer after your made to feel sympathetic towards John so it really speaks and on a case where it feels like they are continually fighting a losing battle it more than makes up for there performance. It is worth watching the whole series just for this moment. I would highly recommend this to anyone into crime dramas as it has a high quality finish like many HBO shows now. This mini series has a constant mystery to it which I believe what makes it so attractive, we never find out how the killing happened and to be honest I am OK with them leaving it that way.
