The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 saw Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) return with a brand-new high-profile murder case and a brand-new love relationship. The sole issue? Tragically, the two are linked.
Following their liaison, Lisa Trammell, a hot cook played by Lana Parrilla, was charged with the murder of Mitchell Bondurant, a successful real estate entrepreneur. What did she do then? She contacted Mickey to stand up for her, and he of course came to the rescue.
The jury, Mickey, and viewers have all questioned whether Lisa actually killed Mitchell during the two-part second season of The Lincoln Lawyer or if she was set up by someone else with a motive, such Alex Grant.
The first episode of Season 2, Part 1 of the television show based on Michael Connelly‘s best-selling novel, concluded with Lisa’s attorney Andrea Freemann (Yaya DaCosta) presenting fresh evidence that showed she might have committed the crime after all. Mickey was attacked unexpectedly, and we left him bleeding and unconscious in a parking garage.
Season 2, Part 2, which debuted on August 3 portrays Lisa’s fate, the gruelling trial, and Mickey’s recuperation. And a dramatic, twist-filled conclusion included a wedding, a horrific discovery, and a chilling, fatal cliffhanger.
Do you want to know how Season 2, Part 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer ends? Should Mickey win the case? Mitchell was slain if Lisa? How does Mickey find his next client, then? You can read Decider’s recap of Episode 10 here. Just remember that spoilers for The Lincoln Lawyer exist.
With everyone tensely anticipating the trial, Season 2, Episode 10, “Bury Your Past,” opens with Mickey and Lisa selecting their last court attire. “You’re Mickey Fucking Haller and you win cases,” says Lorna as she offers Mickey a much-needed pep talk in a lift with him.
You always act in that way, whoever you are defending. But is she actually correct? especially when Walter Kim, the man they believe Alex Grant paid bribes to and who may have killed Mitchell, calls and claims Cisco was unable to locate him.
Whatever happened, Cisco claims, “I have a bad feeling that Alex Grant decided to permanently silence Walter Kim.” Mickey feels there is no hope of reopening Lisa’s case without Kim, so he devotes everything he has to his closing argument.
The jury is informed by him that Andrea’s tale is “a fairytale.” He points out that there were no witnesses to the murder and suggests that Lisa’s hammer and gardening gloves were used as evidence to incriminate her. Alex Grant should be considered as a suspect, he advises, since “if history has taught us anything, it’s that people with buried skeletons will do anything to keep them buried.”
I won’t lie; Lisa had a really guilty expression throughout his statements. But is it really for what we believe?
Unexpectedly quickly, a decision is made, and Lisa is declared not guilty of first-degree murder. So why does she still seem untrustworthy to us?
