The Art of War

Series 1 - Episode 4 The Art of War



Now we get some proper legal drama, as Naz’s new, high-flying lawyer Alison Crowe (Glenne Headly) – a grasping, venal horror, because TV lawyers can never be successful and nice people – tries to negotiate a plea bargain with the DA. But the real drama comes when Naz takes the stand in court, and has to decide whether or not to accept any bargain. Though the outcome is obvious if you think about it.

Naz’s decision is probably swayed by his experiences on Rikers Island, and after he is attacked twice, he decides to accept the help of Freddy Knight. But does that mean he will be any safer?


Stone witnesses some suspicious behaviour at Andrea's funeral, while Alison attempts to persuade Naz to take a plea deal. Crime drama, starring Riz Ahmed.
