Henry King claims on TV that he has never had non-consensual intercourse with anyone, and then he is found dead on the pavement with five bullet wounds. Kevin arrives on the scene and declares that every victim, including those who rape forty women, is deserving of respect. According to Henry’s wife, he was attempting to restore his life and dignity. Frank and Kevin are there to interview her – Frank inquires as to where she was between the ages of 9 and 11. She claims to have eaten dinner with her companions. Kevin requests to see the video surveillance system, which she claims hasn’t been turned on in years. Frank is taken aback because her spouse is the most despised guy in America, according to him. Nothing remarkable has happened since her husband’s release from prison, she claims, and the ladies who said he assaulted them have heard nothing either.

“It’s over, I’m coming for you,” King received a text two days earlier. The text was delivered by King’s representative at Allied Talent. Despite the allegations, he stood by Henry for years before firing him three days ago, just as they were about to clinch a $50 million deal with a podcast firm. King was attempting to deprive him of his commission. King owed money to everyone, and he told his agency that a gang banger was trying to rob him. Then it’s out into the streets to find the Shabaz who was robbing King. When Frank approaches a black man on the street who is a little aggressive, an altercation ensues. Kevin intervenes and advises Frank to walk away. Other people are present, and they have their mobile phones out; Frank makes a remark about the dang cell phones, to which Kevin responds that there is another perspective: they hold them accountable.


They find Shabaz, who claims that everyone in jail wanted to go after King, so his team kept him alive for a charge. When King was apprehended, he refused to pay. He spoke with King, who mocked him. Shabaz has an alibi when Kevin asks him where he was last night. Frank informs him that King is no longer alive and that unless he is mentioned in Frank’s will, he will not receive his money. Kevin discovers camera evidence of Frank clashing with a woman, a prosecutor named Jamie Ross (Carey Lowell),, outside the day before. When Kevin and Frank arrive, she claims that Frank has been harassing her. She is the reason for King’s imprisonment and subsequent release. King has a private investigator looking into her life, and he has threatened to destroy her life and family. When Frank asks if she killed King, she tells him to leave her office immediately.

King’s wife, Veronica, lied about leaving the restaurant the night of his death. Veronica claims she went to a bar after the meal because she couldn’t bear going home to Frank, according to subsequent inquiry. However, she did observe a man with a green sweatshirt and sunglasses loitering nearby. It felt strange, even though it was dark. She would have killed Frank herself if she had intended to kill him. The bartender confirms her tale, and CCTV footage shows a man wearing a green hoodie smoking a cigarette. Frank and Kevin go to the place where the man was standing and had left a cigarette. They take it to the lab and discover that it is Nicole Atkins’ DNA; she was the first woman to accuse King of rape.

Kevin, Frank, and the rest of the crew secure a search warrant and proceed to Nicole’s residence; she isn’t there, but her husband is taken aback. Frank rushes to the dryer and notices a green hoodie inside; later, no blood is found on it, but she was present. Nicole was close to King’s residence 30 minutes before the shooting, so they have another hit. And, if a gun was discovered, the casings would match those used to murder King. Nicole is brought in to be interrogated. Frank informs her that they have her on tape, that there are two surveillance videos, and that they are aware of her actions. Frank informs her that if she explains her side of the story about what happened, she would be allowed to return home, and he promises her his word. Nicole stated on television that he had no remorse and that he needed to be stopped, so she shot him. She went home after tossing the rifle in a dumpster. She took a shower, prayed, and then began working on her artwork. Frank approaches her, tells her he lied, handcuffs her, and arrests her.

Nathan is trying the case in the Supreme Court, and she claims that when the legal system failed her, she took matters into her own hands. She had every reason to despise him after shooting him five times. Unfortunately, King’s heinous deeds against her have no influence on this case. She assassinated him. The testimony of King’s wife is changed. She claims she was in the house at the time of the shooting and saw him arguing with Nicole. Nicole is the next witness to take the stand, and she claims King was nice at first until they played tennis one day and he began flirting with her. He wanted to have sex with her, and when she refused, he forced her down on the bed and sexually assaulted her.

She wished to act as if it had never happened. After he raped her, they stayed friends. He drugged her and raped her again the next time she saw him when she was only 24 years old. When King urged her to apologize the night before his death, she took the revolver just in case he tried to rape her again. She shot him when things became aggressive and she was terrified for her life. Odelya is forced to give the closing argument by Nolan, and as part of her statement, she tells the jury that her sister was raped. Finally, the jury decides that the defendant is guilty. All of the other victims have gathered in the courtroom and are yelling, “Let her go!”

Although Price and Maroun won their lawsuit, it didn’t seem like a victory. Price reassured Maroun, saying that if they do things the proper way, whatever the jury determines would be correct. Maroun added that if he asks for the shortest statement possible, she’ll sleep better at night. Henry’s sympathetic expression suggests he will.
