Perry Mason is finally making the jump from the streets as a private detective and straight into the courtroom. He is defending an innocent’s case while his associates are busy finding clues to identify the real culprit.
The next episode of the all-new prequel series to the hit 70s soap Perry Mason is coming on air next week. Here is everything you need to know.
As HBO’s ‘Perry Mason‘ inches closer to the finale of its first season, it has picked up the pace compared to a brooding, and sometimes sluggish, nature of its previous episodes.
It has finally brought Perry Mason into the courtroom, and in doing so, has become more focused on solving the case, rather than focusing on the character development of the titular role.
It also brings Mason closer to figuring out the identity of the killer as a new link appears in the form of Jim Hicks. Who is this person and what will his presence lead the show into? Let’s find out.
Perry Mason Episode 7 Release Date

Perry Mason Episode 7 Spoilers
After making his entry into the courtroom in episode six, Mason is now hoping to expose the hidden link between the Radiant Assembly’s staggering debt and Charlie’s ransom.
This results in Mason (Matthew Rhys) putting Herman Baggerly (Robert Patrick) on the stand alongside Jim Hicks and Seidel. The question is, whether he will have enough evidence against them to put one, or all of them, on the stand and ask them why a child had to be killed.
We also expect to see Paul Drake becoming a part of the Perry Mason team and looking at the case from the inside.
Drake will be trying to find out Ennis’s real connection with everything, and most importantly, who hired him to take this job in the first place. Speaking of the cops, we will also see Holcomb and Ennis trying to tie up their loose ends.
Meanwhile, the mounting pressure on Sister Alice (Tatiana Maslany) from the church elders about her promises for a “resurrection” is also a mystery viewers will look forward to.
Will she go forward with it no matter the consequences, or will she finally pick up those bags and run like her mother had advised her to?
Amid all the craziness, Strickland loses track of a key witness, while Drake’s (Chris Chalk) detective work opens a new avenue in the case.
Episode 6 Recap
By end of episode 6, Mason is finally in the courtroom to defend an innocent Emily. As for the detective work outside the court, his associates are seen compensating for his absence.
Pete finds out a check from the Radiant Assembly at George Gannon’s place and the thread of investigation leads to a connection between the Church and Charlie’s death.
If Mason wants to prove Emily’s innocence, he will have to find out the real culprit, and this would mean going after the likes of Jim Hicks, Herman Baggerly and Seidel.
Meanwhile, Della (Juliet Rylance) and Strickland’s (Shea Whigham) search for clues results in uncovering of a potential connection between Detective Ennis (Andrew Howard) and Charlie’s kidnappers.
Later, Mason considers betraying Drake’s (Chris Chalk) trust to give his client an edge in court, and Birdy (Lili Taylor) urges Sister Alice (Tatiana Maslany) to scrap her Easter Sunday plan before it’s too late.
What’s Perry Mason about?
Set in the 1930s Los Angeles, Perry Mason follows the backstory of the most legendary criminal defence lawyer Perry Mason as he fights seemingly impossible battles to fight for the helpless and innocent.
As a fringe benefit to the amazing character development of Mason, we witness the LA of that era. While the rest of the country struggles through the Great Depression, this city is booming! Oil! Olympic Games! Talking Pictures! Evangelical Fervor!
But it is also facing a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong. Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, this drama series follows the origins of Perry Mason.
When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.
