‘For Life’ Episode 3 Preview: Aaron’s uphill battle against the system continues as Marie becomes their target
In the chase for the position of the chief prosecutor, O’ Reilly and Maskins will try framing Marie for Aaron’s unethical act during the Jose Rodriguez trial
The heart-wrenching tale of wrongly convicted Aaron Wallace (Nicolas Pinnock) as shown on ABC’s ‘For Life’ has not only stirred a conversation among viewers but also presented us with a story that’s guaranteed to remain in the minds of audiences long after the show wraps up.
In the previous episode of ‘For Life’, we saw Aaron stand defiant against the legal system by trying to sue the NYPD for not providing him with the crucial details concerning his case, which could be his ticket to freedom. Although he succeeds in winning the case of Joey Knox, a Jewish inmate who was placed in the hole for attacking a guard, Aaron loses his own as Glen Maskins (Boris McGiver) ensures he has no leg to stand on, by thwarting detectives from appearing in the court to support Aaron.
The official synopsis for Episode 3 of ‘For Life’ reads, “Determined to gain access to his police file, Aaron decides to represent an inmate from Safiya’s drug rehabilitation program whose brother is a cop. District Attorney Maskins and Assistant District Attorney O’Reilly (Erik Jensen) close in on proof of Aaron’s malfeasance during Jose Rodriguez’s trial, targeting Marie Wallace (Jiy Bryant) as a way to get to Aaron."
In the previous episode, we saw the prison warden Safiya Masry (Indira Varma) encourage Aaron to pursue his dreams by finding a new way to fight his case, willing to go head-to-head with Maskins, which could harm her wife’s campaign for District Attorney.
As stated in the preview of Episode 3, O’Reilly will continue doing everything in his power to ensure Aaron doesn’t prove himself innocent. In the chase for the position of the chief prosecutor, O’ Reilly and Maskins will try framing Marie for Aaron’s unethical act during the Jose Rodriguez trial.
It also remains to be seen how Aaron’s legal representation of Safiya’s recommendation is going to act against the latter as not only is she openly fighting for the rights of an innocent man, but her wife is also O’ Reilly’s competitor in the political race.
‘For Life’ airs on Tuesdays on ABC.
