Hollywood circles the wagons
30 July 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The focus shifts in this second episode of a three part story as the murder weapon is located by a kid on a stretch of Long Island beach. Blood and DNA from the victim is found on it and it's identified as belonging to Scott Cohen the victim's movie director husband.

This episode among other things really shows you that at times being a good citizen really can affect things. If that weapon which was a Filipino machete had not been turned in, no one would have been the wiser.

Now instead of personal trainer Jeffrey Sams, law enforcement now goes after Scott Cohen and he's much further up the Hollywood hierarchy. All the help Sams was getting from the studio suddenly dries up as the studio and the movie colony circle the wagons.

Sam Waterston and Carey Lowell have to go out to Hollywood as extradition is fought by the studio. And as we know all too well from real life movie studios and law enforcement in Los Angeles are quite incestuous.

We also see in this episode what a shark Keith Szarabajka is in court, but just a hint. Much more to come in the last part of this trilogy.
