[Closing argument]
John Stone: I'm gonna be honest with you. This isn't what I normally do... I mean, obviously, someone who looks like this doesn't make his living doing public speaking. I'm sorry you even have to look at this... What I normally do is, uh, plea my clients out, because 95% of the time, they did what they were charged with. They sold that dope, they solicited that guy, they stole that iPhone. It's clear to me just looking at them. So, I tell them, uh, "Don't be stupid, take the deal."... The...

The real story of this series is revealed
3 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

THE NIGHT OF, Episode 8, The Call of the Wild, and it's a wrap. The last episode of a widely critically acclaimed show. Personally, for me, it ended much stronger than it started. It literally felt like the first six episodes were there just to set up the ending. This show....this series was all about the ending. Is Naz innocent? From the get go, even as we learn of some of his own past dark deeds, we kind of knew the truth anyway. Yes, he is. So, who cares? Who killed Andrea? Was it Mr. Day, the creepy mortician? Was it Ray Halle (Paulo Costanzo), Andrea's CPA? Former Detective Box has some new evidence now. So, maybe… Or maybe Duane Reade and /or Trevor Williams. Or, maybe it's none of the above. But, who cares, because at the end Andrea's death, as tragic as it was, isn't the story. The real story is simple, and it's universal; the story is about people. People who muddle through life experiencing both good and bad things. People who go through life with luck, love, loneliness. People who have everything, including the kitchen sink, thrown right at their head, and they still move forward. Why? Because, life moves forward. Not sideways, and certainly not backwards (Although, I here Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is working on that one.). Life, in all it's craziness, moves forward. The real story is what happens now? Where does life go from here. Naz has a drug problem. While in prison he embraced the "thug life". Can he return to "civilized society"? His relationship with his parents is strained. Will that mend? Stone's eczema is back-- an allergic reaction brought on entirely by stress. Being lead attorney on a high profile case does not do wonders for his complexion. Will he finally overcome that? He does keep the cat, so that's something positive. The real "plot" of this show: a tragic event alters the lives of a series of people, and how do they move forward from there? This series, consistent in its presentation, ends with more questions than answers. But, hey, that's life….
