An interview with a gang member on death row leads Cary and the SA's office to two dead bodies that had been buried in a vacant lot. One victim was another gang member, but the second was an innocent young woman who went missing several months ago. Ballistics evidence points to the woman's boyfriend, Lockhart/Gardner's client, as her killer. Will, Diane, and Alicia, however, believe that the murders were related and both victims were probably shot by a third gang member who is still at large. Because the only person who might know the truth is a vicious killer slated to be executed by the state in 36 hours, the Lockhart/Gardner team must find a way to get a stay of execution for a guilty man before time runs out for their client. Campaign manager Mickey Gunn comes to Eli for help. He has a promising young politician with a humorous skeleton in his closet: a drunken Facebook picture showing his client stooping in front of a Santa Claus statue, as if performing fellatio. Eli must figure out a way to spin the story before it sinks Mickey's client's campaign hopes for good.
