  • Episode Description
  • Matlock takes Leanne to meet Martha Jordan, the wife of his very first client back in 1962. Stan Shaw was the cook at the local diner when he was accused of killing the local sheriff after a disagreement in the diner. Charlie Matlock pushed his son, who had recently quit his job as a district attorney to take the case, but not everyone in town was happy with the Matlocks siding with the black cook accused of killing the white sheriff. Despite Cyrus Jordan's attempts to get the Matlocks to drop his case for their own safety, father and son were determined to prove that Cyrus never killed anyone.moreless

    • Like many episodes set in the past, this episode does not feature Matlock's mother in any way except to comment that he learned to cook from her. This suggests that she has passed away, but in early episodes of the series, Matlock would often speak with his mother on the telephone.
