Mickey Haller’s got a set on him, I’ll give him that. The Lincoln Lawyer is making a bold choice, but will the creators cash in?
This recap of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer season 1, episode 7, “Lemming Number Seven,” contains spoilers.
The Lincoln Lawyer season 1, episode 7 recap
The episode starts with Mickey asking Cisco to do something that can get his license revoked and maybe even jail time. His reply? “Who do you want me to kill?” That Cisco, he is starting to rub off on me. I think he may be too good for Lorna. This scene leads to the whole point of why Mickey brought this up. He needs Cisco to investigate juror number seven because he was bribed. Cisco figures this is why Jerry was killed. Lastly, since a crime will be committed, Mickey will have to bring this to the judge when the jury deliberates. Mick also asks him to get information on Kosevich.
Cisco returns later and has information on both. Before he does, Hayley asks him what it is to Cisco if she marries Lorna? His response? “Well, I’m the dad you call when you need someone’s legs broken.” Again, this Cisco is alright by me. As they enter the balcony (you will notice all of Michael Connelly’s heroes have a beautiful view in a Los Angeles home), he tells Mick what he found. The juror, Van Nys, is not an engineer. (You would think there may be some review board, or the prosecutor would have uncovered this). Lastly, Kosevich started in private banking but his hands in the Russian mob, GRU, and even Putin.
It becomes evident that Mick has to ignore his ethical responsibilities because if he does not and tells the judge about the tampering, he is putting his life in danger and his friends and family. Hell, you can always, though, expect Mickey Haller to do the unexpected. It was no coincidence that the lawyers were called into Judge Stanton’s chambers to discuss Van Nys. He never showed up today. He was tipped off that someone sent judge Stanton a note stating the juror is not who he says he is. The man sitting on the jury is not the real engineer. That man is at home and said he never received a jury summons.
Seriously, who is vetting jurors for the city of Los Angeles?
The episode ends with Mickey talking to Maggie on the phone. He stops by their house and looks through the window at his daughter and ex-wife. As he drives off, he sees two men sitting in a truck. Both are wearing leather jackets and have tattoos all over their upper bodies. He looks at them as he pulls his car next to them, sitting in the same green truck we saw when Haller visited the Road Saints. He has hired them to watch his family.
Why? Because when Mickey left Trevor on that elevator and accused him of sending that note to the judge, he walked away, and we saw the look on his face. He did it. Haller is now betting on the judge not declaring a mistrial and getting rid of his ethical obligation since the crime has not been committed yet.
But at what cost?
