ÂAlicia and Diane wrestle with spousal privilege laws in a murder case that hinges on their ability to get a wife to testify against her wealthy investment-banker husband. On the personal front, Alicia, Peter and the kids adjust to him being home.
Bodyguard, Brad Boussard, is accused of killing his client, Miles Wagner, a partner in a mutual fund that was the largest feeder of money to Bernie Madoffâ€™s Ponzi scheme. Brad was found covered in the victimâ€™s blood giving CPR to Mr. Wagner. He also carries the same caliber gun that killed Miles, a 9mm, but the gun and Mr. Wagnerâ€™s briefcase filled with $50,000, were not found at the scene. Diane brings in a ballistics expert, Kurt McVeigh, who paints a different picture of the crime scene with his expert analysis, the first hole in the case against Brad. Jeremy Knox, Brad Boussardâ€™s partner is put on the stand to testify, but Diane believes heâ€™s lying and wants his alibi, provided by his wife checked out. Because of a donation made by Rachel Knox, Jeremyâ€™s wife, in the amount of $50,000, when their bank counts were frozen, theyâ€™re able to put her on the stand where she testifies that her husband was not home at the time of Miles Wagnerâ€™s murder and he told her to get rid of the $50,000 upon his return. On the personal front, Peter gets acclimated to life at home and gathers his team at the apartment to discuss strategy and damage control.
