Episode Summary

EDIT
Life or Death
AIRED:

Mac is assigned the personally distasteful task of representing a fellow Marine who is appealing his death sentence for the murder of three other Marines. She believes that the defendant, Kaleb Farmer, should receive the death penalty, but she must argue otherwise in court. Brumby, who doesn't believe in capital punishment, must argue in favor of it. However, in attempting to overturn the original guilty verdict, Mac must argue inadequate counsel by the corporal's previous lawyer: then-Commander A.J. Chegwidden. The appeals court lets stand the original guilty verdict, but orders a new sentencing hearing. Mic is recalled by the Royal Australian Navy and must leave within 72 hours. As a result, Harm is assigned to replace Brumby at the new sentencing hearing. Despite Mac's arguments to the defense of Corporal Farmer that was not raised by then-Commander Chegwidden, Corporal Farmer is again sentenced to death. Admiral Chegwidden throws a goodbye party for Mic at the local bar. Everyone takes their turn saying goodbye to Mic, including Harm who despite their troubled past together, is very cordial to Mic. As Mic is ready to walk out the door, Bud begins to sing and is then joined by the rest of the JAG staff: In tribute to Mic, everyone sings "Waltzing Matilda" as he walks out the door and down the sidewalk.
