'Burden of Truth' Season 3 Episode 7 Preview: With ClearDawn's expected vendetta, will Luna save Kodie's case?
When Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) realized her friend Kodie Chartrand (Sera-Lys McArthur) isn't the only one getting targeted unfairly by the Millwood Family Services, she employes her best forces to dig out the other victims of the corrupt authorities. Sadly, however, the court denies her a class action lawsuit because there are simply not enough number of mothers wrongly apprehended by fake-positive drug tests from ClearDawn Labs. And even with a 'shaky' whistleblower, it looks like help will come to Joanna and her partner Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney) much closer to home in the upcoming Episode 7 of Season 3, titled 'Name Your Ghosts.'
The official synopsis of the episode teases: "Coming off the loss of class certification, Joanna and Billy decide to go after ClearDawn alone with an unreliable whistleblower as their only lead." The whistleblower here happens to be a man called Shaky - someone Joanna and Billy had met trough his dad Hank Crawford's AA meetings. How far Shaky is reliable still continues to be a mystery, but we know for a fact that ClearDawn is not going to make things easy for Chang and Crawford, especially now that they know Kodie's defense is on to them. They know Joanna was also aiming for a class action lawsuit so there's a high chance they will try to ensure none of the witnesses against them get to testify. They are working with the MFS after all, they surely have the power.
However, the synopsis also teases "Luna goes to extreme lengths to save another child from a wrongful apprehension." The previous episode saw Luna (Star Slade) reaching out to an old friend from school and not only manage to convince her to testify against ClearDawn, but also leave her abusive relationship and live-in partner to move in with her. What extreme lengths she goes to, to save another innocent family is still a mystery but in the recent past, Luna's prominence as Joanna's right hand has grown tremendously. She isn't the sidekick anymore, she's taking initiatives, following up and going on her own investigation where her intuition leads her. So for all we know, Luna might just be the help Joanna and Billy need to crack Kodie's case once and for all. Perhaps this child she saves is the big fish they needed to get to all along. The wait get any longer.
'Burden of Truth' Season 3 airs on Thursdays at 8 pm only on The CW.
