Conviction Recap 1/8/17: Season 1 Episode 11 “Black Orchid”

Hayes knew something was wrong the instant Wallace called her. Wallace was technically supposed to be in bed beside her because that’s where she had last seen him however he had left the apartment without her knowing and then he had tried waking her up by repeatedly calling her. But Hayes knew Wallace and the fact he knew he was waking her up had meant he couldn’t afford to wait around. So Hayes had did what the text message said. She had gotten dressed, had gone to the address he told her to meet him at, and she had found out that Wallace had called her down to an active crime scene. And seeing as CIU handled cases that had been tried already, she had been a little confused. However, Hayes hadn’t been confused for long.

'Conviction' Winter Finale Recap: Does Hayes Finally Lose a Case?

'Conviction' Recap: What Happens When Hayes Has to Defend a Bad Guy?

Aptly titled "Dropping Bombs," this episode of Conviction takes us down an icky road of questionable ethics and murky values. When the CIU revisits the bombing of a mosque -- on the 10th anniversary of September 11 -- it looks like the bomber might get a new trial. (I told you it was gross.) Questionable and murky seem like likely places for self-proclaimed bad girl Hayes Morrison to hang out, but even this seems a little much for her. It's safe to say that Hayes isn't particularly likable, nor is her petulant child act getting any less trying. But there is a moment of sizzle between her and Wallace on the red carpet that makes her only a little less bothersome. While on said red carpet, Wallace blathers compliments about Hayes to the reporter and calls her "the new Hayes." Of course, she hates this because she is basically a brat, and this prompts her to rush back to the office in her ball gown to hunt for just the right case to get under his skin.   ...Read More... //

Conviction: a debut with potential.

Conviction’s pilot opens with Hayes Morrison (Peggy Carter herself, Hayley Atwell) sitting in a jail cell after being busted for cocaine possession. She’s particularly chill considering her situation and it certainly looks like it’s not the first time she’s been detained. We quickly learn that Hayes is the former First Daughter, a tittle that she might claim once again since now it’s her mother, not her dad, running for President. Even though Hayes seems ok embracing her orange is the new black future, in walks D.A. Conner Wallace (Eddie Cahill, who has aged like fine wine), who offers the wild child to make her possession charges and arrest dissolve into thin air before her scandal hits the news, only if she accepts to lead his new Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU). Hayes refuses to be blackmailed at first, and calls Conner out, claiming that because he eyes a political future, he wants her to do New York’s Criminal System’s dirty laundry. That way he’d look like a respectable, responsible candidate, while she would be making people mad. READ MORE...
