Watch Perry Mason season 1, episode 8 live, on TV or online.
We’ve reached the Perry Mason finale, so find out how to watch Perry Mason online or live this week to see how the HBO miniseries—now the first season—comes to a close.
“Chapter Eight” was supposed to be the last episode, but now the TV crime drama has been turned into an ongoing series, so it’s become more of a stopping point. That prompts the natural question of how much will be resolved and how much will be left open?
Presumably this episode was written before HBO ordered a second season, so you’d think the writers would have crafted some kind of definitive ending—but did they? Will the audience see Perry (Matthew Rhys) get Emily Dodson (Gayle Rankin) off the hook for a murder that we know she didn’t commit? Will he be able to build some kind of a future, professionally and personally, for himself?
And what about Sister Alice (Tatiana Maslany)? She was last seen on the run once she realized how out of control her church had gotten. Her story has never fully integrated with the main one and this is the last opportunity to bring her and Perry together on a larger scale. It’d be great to see more scenes between Maslany and Rhys, especially since it seems both of their characters could use some advice.
Here’s how HBO officially describes the episode:
After the team receives some unvarnished critique from Hamilton Burger, Della presents an increasingly stubborn Mason with her case for putting Emily on the stand. As the sensational trial winds to a close, Mason, Strickland, Della, and Drake attempt to tie up loose ends – and set the stage for their futures.
There is no promo or teaser for the season finale, as HBO does not release them for this show. But if you need a refresher on all the major players, here’s a character featurette that the network has put together:
