1. Russ Skokie's (Timothy Hutton) heart-wrenching scene within the first five minutes of the episode. Make sure you have a box of tissues handy! 

2. Some of the most emotionally raw scenes seen on network television. The show is told from the perspective of the accused, the victims and their families, painting an intimate, visceral portrait of the lives and families affected by one tragic crime.
