Canterbury's Law Episode Guides
Elizabeth represents Louis Minot, a man who claims to have "special powers" after finding the remains of a man missing for almost 20 years who "told" Louis where to look. Everyone thinks Louis is crazy and guilty to boot, but Elizabeth, against her own better judgment, believes in his innocence and his abilities, especially after he reveals information about her missing son, Sam. But when more bodies are discovered based upon other "conversations" Louis has had, the case seems unwinnable. Meanwhile, Elizabeth makes a startling admission about Sam's abduction.
The seriousness of the indictment as well as her probable disbarment and imprisonment finally hits Elizabeth, who tries to cut a deal and get her affairs in order. Russell, Chester and Molly have a different plan, and behind Elizabeth's back, begin mounting a surprising defense, one that involves Deputy Attorney General Zach Williams, Elizabeth's prosecutor.
Sick as Your Secrets
In an effort to avoid defending a rapist on trial, something she swore she'd never do, Elizabeth works with the Attorney General's office on a plea for a former client and admitted rapist, but is blindsided by the rape victim, who is coaxed and enticed into testifying by a radio talk-show host looking to goose drive-time ratings. Meanwhile, Chester goes after a greedy slumlord when a little girl who lives in one of his rodent-infested properties is disfigured by a rat, and Molly gets her bar exam results.
A Rhode Island lawyer on the rise, Elizabeth Canterbury puts her career on the line to take on risky and unpopular cases, even when they take a toll on her personal life, already shaky due to her strained marriage and the unsolved disappearance of her young son. Defending accused child murderer Ethan Foster, Elizabeth goes to unimaginable lengths to prove her client's innocence, putting her directly at odds with her associates at the firm, including her partner Russell Krauss, and the firm's young associates, the green Molly McConnell and cocksure Chester Grant.
While dealing with the aftermath of being arrested and jailed overnight for jury tampering and perjury, Elizabeth must defend Izzy and Linda, high-school students accused of soliciting murder. When Linda secretly switches lawyers and cuts a deal, it's a case of she said-she said, and Elizabeth must learn to decipher high-school doublespeak if she's going to save her client.
What Goes Around
A vindictive Deputy Attorney General Williams builds a case against Elizabeth, impaneling a Grand Jury and executing search warrants in his effort to prove that she broke the law while defending accused child murderer Ethan Foster. Elizabeth's in the dark at first, but when Russell and Chester get wind of Williams' vendetta, they refuse to let her shutter Canterbury & Associates. Meanwhile, a terrified and unprepared Molly mounts her first defense; and after an important university faculty event, the gulf between Matt and Elizabeth becomes heartbreakingly apparent.
