“There’s a world of difference between who we are… And who we want to be.” – Michael Desiato to Jimmy Baxter on Your Honor Season 2 Episode 9. Full Recap.
This Your Honor recap contains spoilers for “Part Nineteen” / Season 2 Episode 9.
On the latest Your Honor, Jimmy Baxter makes Michael Desiato an offer to be his right hand man. Baxter claims to want to utilize Desiato’s intellect despite being disbarred and that he’s going ‘legit’.
But Michael is skeptical, feeling its sacrifices and not loyalty that is most important to a family. And he fears what he’ll have to sacrifice. The concept behind loyalty itself is a running theme in this Your Honor episode.
While receiving a ride back from Jimmy’s son Carlo, Michael questions Carlo on his father going legit. That he won’t be a part of anything if Carlo’s the one running crimes, because Carlo will get caught.
Carlo responds if someone drops a bag at your house and you don’t look inside, then someone later picks it up… Are you really committing a crime?
Michael Desiato asks to be let out of the car and tells Carlo, yes it is a crime, ignorance doesn’t hold up in a court of law.
Meanwhile, Lee Delamere defends Eugene Jones with Gina Baxter on the witness stand. She conveys that Gina must have not seen the real shooter or she would have leapt out to take the bullet for her son.
Lee also brings up that Gina did not see which hand shot the gun. This line of questioning makes Jarek Rall nervous and he decides to amend the witness list and add Michael to it, which infuriates Lee.
When Michael is confronted by Lee to lie on the witness stand, he refuses. Michael Desiato comments that he will only tell the truth, no more lies. It’s never gotten either of them anywhere.
Fia Baxter demands the truth from her father about the legalities of his business. When he relents and tells her everything from her grandfather on down, Fia tells Jimmy his ties to a certain family in New York is being investigated. But she refused to cooperate with the investigation.
In turn, Jimmy drops out of the Baxter district altogether. Shocking Charlie Figaro and Olivia Delmont.
