Storyline

The McMillans' maid Mildred is serving on the jury deliberating on the fate of San Francisco football star Luke Johnson, but one night she is attacked in her hotel. The jury is moved to a different hotel and in their vote for a decision, jurors vote to acquit Luke Johnson - except for juror Tom Ryan. Later that night when Jerry, a guard, gets a phone message for Tom Ryan from his stepmother Virginia Ryan, he and another guard go to Tom Ryan's hotel room, and find him shot to death. McMillan must now investigate two murders - the murder of Luke Johnson's teammate Mo Draper (the subject of the trial) and the murder of juror Tom Ryan. The McMillans and Charlie Enright question Luke Johnson's lawyer, the Ryan family, team manager Andrew Brille, and Jerry the guard, but several attempts are made on their lives, including an attempted shooting of Stewart at a football game, before Stewart makes a startling discovery about the way Tom Ryan died - and in turn learns the true reason why Tom ...

Trivia

The football team that Luke Williams plays for is the San Francisco Miners. This is a sly nod to the San Francisco 49'ers, who are also known as the Niners. See more »

Goofs

While Mac and Sally are watching the news report about the trial they see Mildred walking to the jury room. This shouldn't have happened due to the fact that in all jury trials the jurors are never shown until after the final verdict is rendered in order to protect their impartiality. See more »

Quotes

[McMillan reaches Sam, the Coroner, after a new autopsy has been done on Tom Ryan]
Coroner: Well Commissioner, when you're right, you're right. We blew this one.
Commissioner Stewart McMillan: Nobody's perfect, Sam.
Coroner: I am, usually.
Commissioner Stewart McMillan: Usually perfect? That's like saying slightly pregnant. What did you find?
Coroner: Well, like you speculated, this guy was poisoned. We didn't find it.
Commissioner Stewart McMillan: You didn't find it because you weren't looking for it.
Coroner: The man has two bullet holes in his back, it never occured to us to look for poison. How many times do you have...

Usually perfect? That's like saying slightly pregnant. What did you find?
4 February 2019 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

John Randolph guest stars in this memorable episode. I don't know how Mildred could get jury duty and a murder case in San Francisco since she works directly for the police commissioner. Anyway, she is serving as a jury on a high profile murder case. When the jury gets sequestered, a juror gets murdered in the hotel. He was the juror to vote not guilty while others would have voted guilty. Then it gets complicated. It's still a good episode!
