‘Your Honor’ Episode 3 Spoilers: What did Gina Baxter whisper in son Carlo's ears and will he kill Kofi Jones?
Will Carlo torture and murder Kofi Jones in prison? Fans have plenty of theories and most of them feel Kofi will die soon
Spoilers for ‘Your Honor’ Episode 3 aka ‘Part Three’
The haunting tune of Leonard Cohen's ‘Treaty’ plays as the third episode of ‘Your Honor’ begins. In the last episode, Kofi Jones (Lamar Johnson) had already pled guilty for a crime he didn't commit as Adam Desiato (Hunter Doohan) and Michael Desiato (Bryan Cranston) looked on. The third episode aka ‘Part Three’ dives right into Adam's guilty conscience as he takes photos of all the evidence of his crime.
It's the funeral day of Rocco Baxter (Benjamin Hassan Wadsworth) — who died on the spot after Adam crashed into him with his beat-up Volvo — and Adam doesn't know what to do. Meanwhile, his father is busy cleaning up his crime and wiping off the entire trail.
At the beginning of the episode, he meets the drunk guy at the gas station and tricks him to delete the camera footage from that day. The show then introduces Carlo Baxter (Jimi Stanton) — “a vicious, dangerous racist” — who is behind bars for murdering a 15-year-old boy because he didn't like the color of his skin. His mother Gina wants him released to attend the funeral.
After the Baxter family find out Kofi Jones has accepted that he killed Rocco, they trace it to the Desire group, which might have had an affiliation with the boy Carlo killed. Jimmy Baxter (Michael Stuhlbarg) wonders why would they come after so many years, but the real mob boss Gina Baxter (Hope Davis) is convinced and has her eyes set on revenge.
For the funeral, she gets her son Carlo out of the prison. Even though she is instructed by the cops to maintain a distance, she walks right over to hug her son. When the cops threaten her, she warns them, “Don't touch me.” Jimmy intervenes and manages to let her hug their son after telling the cops, “You have mothers? You all have mothers...”
It's clear that Gina had a motive there. She didn't go to hug her son just like that. What did she whisper in her son's ears? Perhaps, Gina told her son to murder Kofi Jones in the prison facility before the trial can begin, didn't she?
Towards the end of the episode, Kofi Jones is under threat and Michael calls the prison facility to get him protection. However, two guys almost manage to seclude him in a plot to kill him. What do you think will happen next? Will Carlo torture and murder Kofi in prison? Fans have plenty of theories and most of them feel Kofi will die soon.
One Reddit fan said, “Was Kofi walking to his own death? The guy talking to him before mentioned how you can't really fight the Baxters — which leads me to believe he is a dead man inside or out.” Another posted, “I feel like Kofi knew if he was released he was a dead man either way, and the gang leader threatening his family would off them as well. Self-sacrifice.”
A third jotted down, “Well Baxter’s reach is wide. So when the kid was taken for the physical, and then the camera was turned off and the two white dudes went in, they were there to kill him. He was saved by the bell then, but he went back and spoke with desire dude and cellmate, and he asked him like what the hell is he going to do? The dude basically told him hey, desire has some clout out there and in here, but the Baxter’s is everywhere. So when he asked dude what he should do, dude told him it’s best to speak to Rocco! & of course the guards facilitated, because money talks! Period! Lol!”
He continued, “That’s the impression I got. I feel like Rocco will regard the kid with skepticism, but he’s very likable, and he truly is innocent, so the heat will be turned up next episode. The Baxter’s will know the real killer is not behind bars.”
What do you think will happen in the next episode? Will Carlo torture and kill Kofi Jones? What will happen if Kofi dies for Adam's crime? Will Michael and Adam be able to gulp it down?
