The First Season of Franlin & Bash comes to a close with Jared (Breckin Meyer) and Peter (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) defending their boss (Malcolm McDowell) for murder. The problem? He freely admits to committing the act and lied about it for years. The situation isn’t helped by the arrival of a partner (Tricia Helfer) from one of the other branches of the firm who seems to be doing whatever she can to sabotage their case and take control of the Los Angeles branch of Infeld Daniels.
Although there aren’t as many courtroom antics as you’d might expect for the season finale the episode does give us an unconventional defense (which includes a jury trip to the morgue) and a pair of familiar faces in guest-appearances by Helfer and Gates McFadden (as the judge presiding over the case). There’s also a nice moment between Infeld and Hannah (Garcelle Beauvais) over her future at the firm.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this freshman season of Franklin & Bash. The finale might not have been everything I wanted it to be The show will return on TNT for a Second Season and I’ll be waiting.
