When will 'All Rise' Season 2 Episode 6 air? Here's what you can expect when show returns after winter break
This week's episode also featured an early Christmas party at the courthouse where everyone gets together in a rare moment of camaraderie
When 'All Rise' returned to CBS with its second season in November it did so with two bombshell reveals in the first two episodes. In the first episode of the new season, we learned that Judge Lola Carmichael (Simone Missick) is pregnant. We also learned that Luke Watkins (J Alex Brinson) and Emily Lopez (Jessica Camacho) broke up and all indications pointed to Emily having broken up with Luke.
However, in the second episode, we learned that it was Luke who initiated the breakup and he did so in the aftermath of the protests because he needed to process things. It was disappointing to see that Luke had moved on with his colleague, leaving Emily upset.
Nevertheless, Emily has been having her best season yet as she continues to represent clients by taking full interest and empathy in how she deals with the cases and argues for them. This week, Emily's case involved a Black man who had shot another man to protect his daughter. However, the DA is pursuing charges of premeditated murder and it is up to the jury to decide in the end whether the man will get to spend Christmas with his family.
Meanwhile, the final episode of 2020 for 'All Rise' deals with Mark Callan (Wilson Bethel) continuing to deal with a case against a police officer who had fabricated evidence and got a man arrested.
This week's episode also featured an early Christmas party at the courthouse where everyone gets together in a rare moment of camaraderie. There is also an awkward run-in between Emily and her new boyfriend, and Luke and his new girlfriend. Both Emily and Luke seem a little shaken up — and it certainly seems like Luke still has feelings for Emily. His lukewarm response to his girlfriend, Sam, telling him that he has been the best part of 2020 certainly sends up red flags.
Viewers watching the episode may have realized that this is the last episode for 2020. So, when will 'All Rise' return? Since the CBS show is going on break for the holidays like all the other shows from the Monday night lineup, the show is expected to return in January 2021. While the return date is something we know, the title and the synopsis for the next episode are still unknown. However, we expect that to be made available within the next few weeks.
'All Rise' returns with new episodes to CBS on Monday, January 4, 2021, at 9/8c.
