Johnny refuses the deal of twenty years in prison the Attorney General's office is not happy. With a election coming they want this criminal either dead or behind bars. So the AG sends his assistant named Charles Shepherd to get Johnny Farron anyway that he can.
With aspects of one day becoming Attorney General, Shepherd does some underhanded deals with Johnny and Edna. Shepherd advises that he is talking with Matt when he offered Johnny another deal but we as viewers know this is not the case. We see that he really meant 'anyway he can'.
Vincent Gardenia is excellent as the assistant AG that does some unethical things in order to make himself look good in the eyes of the voters. His performance is worth watching the show. Perhaps not the most entertaining show of the season but one that held the viewer's interest. Nice watch.
