Meanwhile, Martha looks to be suffering from PTSD as a result of what happened to her in a California hotel. Outside, John expresses his delight at leaving Nixon’s control. Liddy and Howard are detained as the investigation progresses. During the trial, McCord meets with them secretly and urges them that the President should interfere. He sees himself and others as pawns in a massive political and power war.
As the episode progresses the viewers see that Judge John Sirica told Liddy, Howard, and the other five convicts during their sentencing that he knew they didn’t do it alone, and he sentenced them all to 30 years in jail. He did, however, say that the court will reconvene in two months to formalize the punishment, giving the convicts time to weigh their alternatives. Dean is tasked with handling the FBI inquiry.
