In this 8th episode of the series Dallas attorney Stan Turner struggles to keep his practice going in the wake of the tragic loss of his son and his rapidly disintegrating marriage. Mired in grief and debilitating depression, Stan is asked by the CIA to defend a woman accused of killing her husband and three small children. The CIA assures him she's innocent, but when one of the woman's children is discovered dead in an East Texas ravine, Stan wonders who's been lying to him. Still, Stan believes the woman is innocent but must tread carefully to avoid revealing the CIA's top secret Tarizon Project. Paula's husband, Bart, gets fired by the Collin County DA's office and ends up helping her defend a man accused of the arson-murder of a prominent scientist and his family. It is thought a long feud over a barking dog is the motive for the murders, but further investigation reveals a bitter battle over a lucrative defense contract may in actuality be the true motive for the murders.
