The Equalizer - Judgment Day

"Judgment Day" offers a convoluted storyline involving Team Equalizer hired by the defense attorney of an escaped convict (Joe Perrino) who was unjustly put in prison by a District Attorney who is now a judge (Amy Hohn) who has hired thugs out to kill anyone who might reveal her secret. Keeping an innocent man out of prison, and getting justice for the crimes he's accused of, means working with both Detective Marcus Dante (Tory Kittles) and an Assistant District Attorney (Jennifer Ferrin). The episode's B-story involves some teenage drama between Delilah (Laya DeLeon Hayes) and a friend drifting apart which means more to Robyn (Queen Latifah) than her daughter. The B-story feels mostly like filler pulled from a afterschool special, albeit one without a point, while the main story proves to be the weakest of the show so far.
