Your Honor Season 2 Ep 8 is the eighth 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 8 essentially gets Desiato back on track as far as collaborating with the Assistant District Attorney (ADA) in bringing down the Baxter crime family is concerned. You know, the original reason for Desiato being released from prison and given probation in the first place. After the intervening distraction of Desiato discovering and nailing the corrupted policemen responsible for his wife Robin’s murder, this was necessary to inject narrative drive into the proceedings.
Your Honor Season 2 Ep 8 has other sub-plots in the mix as well e.g. Gina Baxter’s feud with Big Mo, Eugene Jones’ criminal trial, Gina’s marital estrangement from Jimmy and of course, Fia and Rocco’s new living arrangements with Desiato. It is the last mentioned sub-plot that dovetails into the main quest as the ADA’s agreement to leave Fia out of the Baxter family investigations is the price of Desiato’s collaboration. Fair to say that at least the motivation for Desiato this time ties in more convincingly than what existed before i.e. to help out Mayor Charlie.
With two episodes left, one wonders how in the world Desiato will be able to bring down the Baxter family by himself in whatever story time remaining. We shall see.
… still there’s more …
