Episode Summary

EDIT
Hard-Gating
AIRED:
Deed questions an unpleasant prison officer closely about the death of Paul Settle, a young prisoner who was stabbed to death and then partly eaten by his cell-mate Ben Bradwell just a week before he was due to get out. The Judge is worried that Settle was black, while Bradwell was known to be a vicious racist.

In another case, Deed comes up with a thoughtful sentence for a drunk driver who killed a child.

Meanwhile, Deed and Jo seem to be growing apart.moreless
