‘American Crime’ Episode Guide (April 16): Mark’s Fianceé Arrives in Modesto

“Episode Seven” (04/16/15) – While Carter sits in solitary confinement, Aubry blindsides her family when asked to testify against Carter in order to stay out of jail.

Meanwhile, an incriminating video leads to Tony being re-arrested and sent back to juvenile detention.

Elsewhere, Mark’s fiancé Richelle (Gwendoline Yeo) arrives in Modesto and meets Barb, who unashamedly questions her plans to marry Mark. Aliyah meets with a new investigator who provides her with damaging information that could help Carter.

Once the prosecution refuses to hear this new evidence, she becomes determined to hold a peaceful demonstration in support of her brother, on “American Crime,” THURSDAY, APRIL 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Guest Starring in this episode are Jesse Borrego as Oscar, David Hoflin as Mark Skokie, Gleendilys Inoa as Jenny Gutiérrez, Lily Knight as Colleen Sherrod and Gwendoline Yeo as Richelle.

“Episode Seven” was written by Stacy A. Littlejohn and directed by Sam Miller.

Following the home invasion murder of Matt Skokie – a war vet – and an assault on his wife Gwen, four suspects are brought into custody: Tony Gutiérrez, an impressionable teen who got in way over his head even under the watchful eye of his dedicated and hard-working father, Alonzo Gutiérrez. Hector Tontz, a young man who has lived life on the fringes of society and has made bad decisions just to survive. Carter Nix and Aubry Taylor, two incredibly lost souls whose addiction to drugs and to one another has become destructive and paralyzing.

Though the suspects fit a profile, they and their situations are far more complicated than anyone would have initially believed… As is true for the victims themselves. As Russ and Barb Skokie – divorced and estranged – arrive to both bury their son Matt, and seek a measure of justice for his killing, they discover their son may have been far from an innocent bystander in his own murder.

Told from the points of view of all those involved, this new drama examines preconceptions on faith, family, gender, race, class and other aspects of our social experience with an approach and perspectives historically underserved in media.

“American Crime” stars Felicity Huffman as Barb Hanlon, Timothy Hutton as Russ Skokie, W. Earl Brown as Tom Carlin, Richard Cabral as Hector Tontz, Caitlin Gerard as Aubry Taylor, Benito Martinez as Alonzo Gutiérrez, Penelope Ann Miller as Eve Carlin, Elvis Nolasco as Carter Nix, Johnny Ortiz as Tony Gutiérrez and guest starring Regina King as Aliyah Shadeed.

“American Crime” is created and executive produced by Oscar® winner John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”). Michael J. McDonald also serves as executive producer. “American Crime” is produced by ABC Studios.
