Conviction (2016) Full Episode Guide

  • Hayes reopens the failed case of Gerald Harris from her time as a defense attorney - the very case where she met Wallace almost 10 years ago.

  • Past President Morrison pays Hayes a surprise visit and urges her (and CIU) to tackle the case of Omar Abbas, a Muslim-American citizen detained for years without trial in a military facility for supposedly planning a chemical strike on Manhattan.

  • While Hayes and Wallace battle to juggle their professional and personal lives, they are requested at a crime scene that fits the M.O. of the infamous "Black Orchid Killer."

  • After Hayes and Wallace experience a passionate evening together, Hayes comes back to reality and carefully ponders sticking her toe into relationship waters with Wallace. Simultaneously, she also attempts to start repairs for her bitter loss in the death penalty case of Earl Slavitt.

  • CIU reopens the case of Sierra Macy, a teen girl who was abducted ten years ago and assumed dead - until she manages to flee her captor's home after he has a heart attack and dies. Sam, one of the original prosecutors, strongly believes that the right man was convicted: Sierra's past teacher Josh Fleck. Sam's obvious conflict of interest has Hayes second-guessing her choice to keep him on the CIU review of the case.

  • The next case Hayes takes on for the CIU is that of Leo Scarlata, a guy with diminished mental abilities, jailed for burning down his family's restaurant with deadly repercussions. Hayes figures out she may have taken on more than she had hoped, especially when a documentary team approved by Wallace starts following them.

  • The unexpected death of a young African American boy, shot by a police officer, triggers a racial firestorm and influences Hayes to re-examine the controversial case of Porscha Williams.

  • Hayes flings into damage-control mode after her controversial nationally televised interview, hoping to lessen the repercussions within her family and to her mom's Senate campaign. Meanwhile, the CIU accepts the case of a young man from the wrong side of town, convicted for murdering a wealthy woman whose privileged family took him in and cared for him as one of their own.

  • Hayes' recent transgressions ignite a media firestorm. Meanwhile, she and the crew take on the highly sensitive case of a mom, Penny, convicted for the death of her autistic son. The state's most compelling evidence originated from Penny's own video blog, revealing her frustrations and worries about her violent son. While the CIU team finds multiple leads, Hayes must do damage control in an attempt to save her job.

  • The CIU crew labors to exonerate a political activist serving a life sentence for leaving a bomb at a mosque that was fatal to a prominent Imam and three worshippers. The re-examination of the case brings to question the NYPD's role, which places Hayes in Wallace's crosshairs.

  • Wallace's career-making case is re-investigated by CIU team, but there are unknown complexities in this rape and robbery case, and the lady in the middle of the crime becomes victimized again, this time by the media.

  • In the series premiere, Hayes Morrison must dig herself out of what could be a publicly embarrassing situation and in doing so makes a deal with her adversary to take on the Conviction Integrity Unit.
