Your Honor 1.3: The Weak Link

It became more clear than ever in Your Honor 1.3 that the weak link in the judge's plan to get Adam off the hook and out of harm's way of his hit-and-run of the mobster's son is Adam.  Tonight he confesses to his teacher/lover.  There's no telling what he might do next week and in the weeks ahead.

That's why, even if Kofi is killed -- and it looks like that's happening when this episode ends -- Adam will not be home free.  Ordinarly, it would indeed mean a get-out-jail-free card for Adam.  Neither the Baxters nor the police would be looking for the hit-and-run driver.  But not with Adam torn apart and confessing to just about anyone who'll listen.

He did do pretty well with the cop who has the hots for the judge.  Adam's a smart and resourceful kid.  But the guilt that he has is unlikely to abate.  What is his father going to do about that?

The New Orleans in this excellent series has dangers on every corner.  No one can be trusted.  What will Kofi's lawyer do if her client is killed.  Just forget about all of this?  Not likely, since she and Judge Michael are already kissing.  And the last thing Michael needs is someone with legal smarts joining Nancy the cop within kissing distance of the awful truth.

So, at this point, it looks as if the judge is in an impossible situation.  But he is incredibly resourceful, too.  He thinks of pretty much every angle, and has been doing a pretty good job of erasing incriminating evidence.  In the end, the question is who will prevail:  the savvy judge or the guilt-wracked son?
