“Rake” season 1, episode 7: “Three Strikes” airs Thursday on Fox.
Coming up on the next episode, when an old friend from Keegan’s AA days, Reggie Jarvis, is charged with his third strike for a robbery he didn’t commit, Keegan must figure out how to get him off the hook or reach a plea deal – a challenge made more difficult after the mayor declares no plea deals for any of Keegan’s clients. Meanwhile, Keegan reaches a financial low and considers joining Ben’s firm, while Ben exercises his authority at the firm with hiring and firing decisions. Also, Scarlet contemplates a big career move and Keegan bets Maddy that she can’t spend 24 hours with her boyfriend.
Fox describes the show as follows:
“Based on the Australian AACTA nominee for Best Television Drama Series, Rake follows the chaotic and comedic life of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Joye (Greg Kinnear). Brilliant, frustratingly charming, and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life’s great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else wants, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. In addition to Keegan’s cases within the justice system, the show follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his ongoing battle against the IRS, his mounting debt to his bookie, overlapping affairs and liaisons with women, a hormonal son, an exhausted ex-wife and the evolving relationship between his two married best friends, Ben and Scarlett.”
“Rake” season 1, episode 7 airs March 6 at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.
