  • Logical flaw

    6.5
    Supposedly, Lewis wanted to frame Benson for murder. When there were 2 chambers left in the revolver, he put the gun to his head with his right hand and pulled the trigger. Then he moved the gun to his left hand and did the same, firing the gun to make it look like Benson shot him with her free hand. How was he so sure that the first shot had the empty chamber? I hope the new Lt. stays. I always thought it odd that a sergeant would take over the squad from a captain.moreless

    After the last explosive episode, this was a pretty boring followup. They basically ignored the entire way that the entire legal system works, and they didn't even present a true case this week.

    • Derek Strauss: Lt. Murphy, what is the important thing you want the grand jury to hear?
      Declan Murphy: I know for a fact that Sergeant Benson's televised confession was not true. I know, because I ordered her to make the so-called confession. She did not commit police brutality, nor did she perjure herself. It was a gambit. A police tactic to lure the weasel out just enough so we could get him.
      Derek Strauss: Thank you, Lt. Murphy.
      Declan Murphy: I don't even know why we're here! Sergeant Benson performed an act of extraordinary bravery. She single-handedly confronted a career sociopath who raped and tortured elderly women, little girls. He killed cops and innocent civilians. You've heard days of testimony regarding the sergeant's actions, but has the prosecutor discussed Lewis' conduct at all?
      Derek Strauss: Lt. Murphy!
      Declan Murphy: His history of barbarism? Lewis spent his entire life sadistically inflicting his power over people! Thanks to Sergeant Benson, he's where he should be! William Lewis will never hurt anyone ever again, unless you allow him to exert his power over you.
