Reasonable Doubt Season 1 Episode 2 Recap


Loading JustWatch data…


If there was ever a show like Scandal, That’s it. However, I’m going to be bold and say that based on the first two episodes, this series could be even better.

This recap of the Hulu series Reasonable Doubt (2022) season 1, episode 2, “Family Feud”, contains spoilers.

The first episode was a good start. I expect this episode to follow that quality. Although some shows dropped after the pilot episode. Will be Reasonable doubt to be one of those shows? I do not think so. In fact, I’m going to predict that the show will get better as we watch it. Read the recap to find out if I’m right.

Reasonable doubt season 1, episode 2 to sum up

Kalisha’s body is removed from the murder scene. Since he was the victim’s boss, Jamarion may have a little trouble with his hands. In the morning, Jax rushes Will out of her house, and then she rushes to work. Kalisha’s murder is in the news. However, it is Jamarion who gets the most attention, rather than the victim himself. Despite the issues surrounding the case/client, Theo tells Jax that she’s the best person for the deal. However, Jax is unsure if she wants to take on Jamarion’s case.

When Jax is having a drink with her friends, she reveals that she doesn’t know if Jamarion is innocent. And while she won’t allow that to be the deciding factor in accepting jobs, there’s something stopping her from representing Jamarion. Later that night, he calls her and asks “how much”. But she tells him it’s not about the money and puts the phone down. Jax and Lewis’ kids talk to each other and wonder if their parents are getting divorced. Elsewhere, Jax and Lewis have a date. It goes well and they make love.

The end

As she gets to work on the case, Jax takes a break from court and meets with Damon. After ordering coffee, which turns out to be a difficult task for Damon, they head to the beach. Jax has had enough, and she directly asks Jamarion if he raped Kalisha. He says he doesn’t know that in his truth he didn’t rape her. But in Kalisha’s truth, he raped her. Following the response, Jax decides to take on Jamarion as a client. Later that night, Jax finds Jamarion at a basketball court. She realizes that he was in love with Kalisha. She tells him that she will fight for him, but that he cannot run away from crime. Together they go on local news and Jax publicly supports Jamarion.

Quite an exciting ending. And based on that very ending, the story in Reasonable doubt seems to heat up. Personally, I’m really enjoying the show and can’t wait to see how it all pans out.
