Sometimes, you don’t have time to binge a beloved series. Maybe your month’s jam packed, maybe you’re organising a cat funeral. But either way, you want to know all the plot points. You want to be a part of the cultural conversation.
If Jury Duty is such a series in your life, then we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of all of Jury Duty’s spoilers.
Episode One: Voir Dire
In episode one, a normal guy named Ronald Gladden arrives for jury selection. However, he doesn’t know that the entire court case is fictional. Gladden doesn’t know that it was invented to prank him.
The fake trial centres on a business called Cinnamon and Sparrow. The owner of this business, Jacquiline Hilgrove, had accused an employee, Trevor Morris, of irreparably damaging the business.
Episode Two: Opening Arguments
In episode two, Gladden and the fake jurors move into a hotel. Gladden has to adjust to the buckwild people around him.
Episode Three: Foreperson
In episode three, Gladden is the foreperson. The pranks ram up as he has to deal with the cast’s unruly behaviour.
Episode Four: Field Trip
In episode four, the jurists go on a field trip to Cinnamon and Sparrow.
Episode Five: Ineffective Assistance
In episode five, a whack of evidence is pinned on Morris.
Episode Six: Closing Arguments
In episode six, both Hilgrove and Morris’ teams make their final cases to jurors. Meanwhile, Gladden learns how to play a Korean board game.
Episode Seven: Deliberations
In episode seven, it’s Gladden’s job as the foreperson to lead the jury to a unanimous verdict.
Episode Eight: The Verdict
In episode eight, the creators of Jury Duty go all spoilers on how they pranked Gladden. It also acts as a reunion for the whole cast.
As Charles Bramesco wrote for The Guardian, “This final episode takes a hard swerve towards sentimentality, positing that Ronald’s manufactured circumstances nonetheless created authentic bonds with his comrades. One might think that in fact they didn’t, that he’d feel some sense of betrayal at having opened up to people lying to him, or that at least he’d be pissed about still being eligible for bona fide jury duty.”
