God, oh God! Tell me you’re not accepting the case, please. Each of you has seen the other naked. Much of a conflict of interest? Hello?” Lorna is accurate. Mickey has a history of complicated relationships with women.
But it certainly feel like a major conflict of interest to take on the Lisa Trammell murder investigation after they had been intimate. The tension won’t exist, according to Mickey, if that aspect of their relationship remains in the past. However, Lisa isn’t acting the same way she did before, and Mickey hardly is.
It’s inappropriate for a lawyer and his client to be seen holding hands and hugging in a police holding cell.However, The Lincoln Lawyer will be The Lincoln Lawyer, and before long, he will be watching the video of her interrogation by the police.
Lisa acknowledges that on the morning of Mitchell Bondurant’s murder, she saw him in queue at a coffee shop close to her workplace. She uses strong language to criticise Bondurant, a developer who has helped to hasten the gentrification of her Los Angeles neighbourhood, calling him a pig and a dishonest person. She also claims that many people would be eager to attack him.
Not good, once more. Particularly when you are the prime suspect in the death of the man who obtained a restraining order against you. After receiving additional conflicting information from Cisco, including credit card notifications on her phone that showed him in a biker bar rather than where he had claimed to be, Lorna eventually confronts her fiancé.
He acknowledges that he has been hiding information from her and tells how Cisco’s decision to join the Road Saints MC was influenced by his old friend Kaz joining the band. When Kaz was sent to prison, he left the biker gang behind, but now that he is released, the same turmoil is resurfacing. Kaz was imprisoned.
Cisco would have done the same thing, though, if his friend hadn’t shielded him from being grabbed. Teddy, the president of the Saints, is still pressuring Cisco to investigate whether Kaz turned to the authorities in order to obtain out early.
Lorna confided in Izzy about her worries when she was still worried about Cisco, and the two women have become closer now that the latter isn’t simply driving Mickey around but now occasionally working in the office.
But Izzy also experiences her own romantic strife. Her ex Ray (Shelby Lee), who once crushed her heart and assisted in her introduction to heroin, is someone she has been spending an increasing amount of time with. Izzy confesses to Mickey that she and Ray are in the finest position they’ve ever been, and he responds by expressing his desire for her to be content. He also cautions Ray that there won’t be a second chance if she injures Izzy once again.
interest conflicts. Later that evening, Lisa unexpectedly drops by with some meals from her restaurant when Mickey is at home. He is adamant that they aren’t allowed to interact socially, be seen together in public, and most definitely not stay in an intimate relationship.
He is not pressing his point, though. Then, after exhaling, he agrees that they may resume their conversation “once this is all over.” That in and of itself seems to be a conflict! Even retaining the food she brought shouldn’t be acceptable! Though he does.
The camera also pulls back as Mickey exits his house and approaches his driveway to wave Lisa farewell. From a parked automobile, who is observing them? That’s right, Henry Dahl. Is this man a real-life criminal or a true crime podcaster?
