Next week, the end is almost certainly here for “Conviction” on ABC. While this may be a show with an audience, unfortunately signs are pointing to a quick demise following next week’s finale. If there is a silver lining here, it’s that the promo below says “season finale” at the end of it rather than “series finale” — it’s too bad that this is effectively the only good news that we’ve got for you on the subject. (To make matters worse, there are very few shows that a network announces as a “series finale” in advance, since they want to capitalize on the belief that there could be more down the line.)
The good news is this: If the show is going to go out, it looks as though it is going to go out with a bang — and with a story that will be extremely personal to Hayes Morrison as she faces a significant ghost from her past.
Synopsis – “Hayes revisits the failed case of Gerald Harris from her days as a defense attorney – the very case where she met Wallace nearly a decade earlier. Harris was found guilty of murdering his wife despite Hayes’ belief in his innocence due to Wallace unearthing Gerald’s darkest secret. Meanwhile, a member of the CIU team is forced to revisit their illicit actions in the controversial Rodney Landon case. In the end, Hayes and Wallace’s future, as well as that of the CIU team, hang in the balance.”
the preview below gives you a very good sense of precisely what this case was, and also some of what Harris could have been hiding for a rather long time. Through all of her work with the unit, however, one question could rise to the surface: What if he was actually guilty the whole time, and the conviction in this case should stick? We expect twists, and we hope for some sort of closure just so that if the series ends, it does so in a way that is satisfying. You want everyone, cast and crew included, to move on and feel good about the work they’ve done.
