‘Conviction’ Episode Guide (Oct. 17): A Mosque Bombing Investigated

“Dropping Bombs” (10/17/16) – While the CIU team vociferously disagrees among themselves whether the “bad guys” also deserve justice, they work to exonerate a political activist with questionable views. He is serving a life sentence for planting a bomb at a mosque that killed a prominent Imam and three worshippers.

The re-examination of the case calls into question the NYPD’s role which puts Hayes in Wallace’s crosshairs. After a rigorous analysis of the evidence, the stunning conclusion to the case leaves one member of the team strongly dissatisfied with the outcome. Meanwhile, just as Hayes and Wallace seem to be getting cozy, they discover that their worst nightmare has been realized, on “Conviction,” MONDAY, OCTOBER 17 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Mike Doyle as Rodney Landon, Frank Deal as Stan Sowinski, Nigel Gibbs as John Bohen, Anna Khaja as Kadisha Abdullah and Sarah Allen as Lisa Crozier.

“Dropping Bombs” was written by Thomas L. Moran and directed by Liz Friedlander.

When it comes to our justice system, nothing is ever black and white. Just ask Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell). Hayes, a lawyer and former first daughter, is a hero – a controversial one. She finds herself in a tricky position, facing jail time for drug possession or accepting a job from her nemesis, New York District Attorney Conner Wallace (Eddie Cahill). In an effort to avoid damaging her mother’s Senate campaign, for better or worse, she accepts his offer. “Conviction,” a compelling, fast-paced legal procedural, debuts MONDAY, OCTOBER 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Hayley Atwell (“Marvel’s Agent Carter”) stars as Hayes Morrison, Eddie Cahill (“CSI: NY”) as Conner Wallace, Shawn Ashmore (“X-Men,” “Quantum Break”) as Sam Spencer, Merrin Dungey (“Alias,” “Once Upon A Time”) as Maxine Bohen, Emily Kinney (“The Knick,” “The Walking Dead”) as Tess Larson, Manny Montana (“Graceland”) as Franklin “Frankie” Cruz and Actor To Be Recast as Jackson Morrison.

“Conviction” is from The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios. “Conviction” is co-created by writer Liz Friedman and director Liz Friedlander. Executive producers are Mark Gordon, Liz Friedman, Liz Friedlander and Nicholas Pepper.
