Michael Desiato (Bryan Cranston), the respected New Orleans judge seems to be in turmoil after his teenage son, Adam (Hunter Doohan), was involved in a hit-and-run. The game of lies, deceit and impossible choices is getting more confusing than ever. Jimmy Baxter (Michael Stuhlbarg), the much-feared head of a crime family and his wife Gina (Hope Davis) might leave no stone unturned to hurt him and his family.

In ‘Part Seven’, Michael and Frankie (Tony Curran) drown the dead body of the man who was blackmailing the judge with Adam's video. Michael's fingerprints are all the body as it is thrown onto a boat and off into the water. Meanwhile, Jimmy rushes home to save his son, Carlo Baxter (Jimi Stanton) from getting arrested. As the episode comes to a close, Michael sets up his colleague Sarah LeBlanc (Lorraine Toussaint) to be picked up by the cops and has a family gathering on the occasion of his birthday. His friend, Charlie (Isiah Whitlock Jr) raises a toast to the “honorable man” and just then, the dog starts to feel sick.

Now, if you're waiting for Episode 8, prepare to be disappointed.

What's on in place of ‘Your Honor’?

This week, there is no new episode and the Showtime channel is airing a repeat telecast of old episodes, ‘Part Six’ and ‘Part Seven’. The summary of the new episode reads, “Jimmy pressures Michael regarding Carlo's trial, Adam announces his future plans, and Nancy and Lee discover some cops aren't what they seem.”

With the news of no new episode, many fans are disappointed. One posted, “You left us with the dog vomiting brain matter and no new episode? Shameful Showtime #YourHonor,”  and another said, What gives, @Showtime? “Why is #YourHonor not airing tonight? I go on the app early this morning to watch a new episode and it’s not there. It’s not a holiday weekend or anything.”

A third wrote, “Dear @showtime, I look forward to sundays all week to watch #yourhonor and it isn’t on this week. What the heck? Can you at least get @BryanCranston to call me and read me a bedtime story?”

What will happen in ‘Your Honor’ Episode 8?

A 38-second promo begins with the narration, “The judges in this building cannot be trusted.” The next scene shows Maura Tierney as Fiona McKee as she says, “I am 100 percent emotionally involved in getting Carlo Baxter convicted.”

Jimmy then yells at Michael, “She's tearing him apart and you're letting it happen.” In a montage of scenes, we also see how Adam's girlfriend Frannie (Sofia Black-D'Elia) sees him walking hand-in-hand with Fia Baxter (Lilli Kay) and the dialogue goes, “This is what happens. Paranoia sets in. An irrational fear takes hold. We can't have that.”
