Determined to ignore an angry Clive, who attempts to force her to confront the holes in her client's story, Martha begins to wonder if she's cut out for this world.

As chambers begin to worry for her emotional stability, Martha's campaign to lead Shoe Lane into a new future begins to suffer. The shocking truth about the case is finally revealed, and after the jury return their verdict a shattered Martha is forced to confront her actions and their effect on the case.
