Your Honor Season 2 Ep 5 is the fifth chapter of the second season of a legal drama television series that follows the story of a respected New Orleans judge, Michael Desiato, whose son is involved in a hit-and-run accident that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit, and corruption. The show explores themes of morality, family, and the legal system, and stars Bryan Cranston in the lead role. Originally intended as a mini-series, a second season was inexplicably ordered by Showtime.

Your Honor Season 2 Ep 5 seems to close out a couple of sub-plots covered thus far but then at the very end introduces a mystifying new one! All along, Desiato has expressed a desire to spend his remaining years rotting away in jail, having lost the motivation to live upon the death of his son, Adam. However, he agrees to leave jail and do the bidding of the ridiculous DA in order to protect his friend, Mayor Charlie.
Well, as of this episode, Charlie has agreed a deal with the Baxter family for the waterfront development at the behest of the DA and so, it appears that Charlie is no longer in danger and thus Desiato refuses to work for the DA’s office anymore. That makes sense and it would appear that the DA has no more leverage over Desiato but then out of the blue, Desiato is arrested and questioned concerning the murder of his wife! What? Is that where the rest of season 2 is headed? Lame!
Your Honor Season 2 Ep 5 continues to double down on the notion that this second season is an utter waste of time. Seriously, why should we care about the cares of the peripheral characters when the main character has expressed no motivation to live? Guess what, he is now given one in the most unrealistic manner! So now what?
… still there’s more …
