    Starring John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, and directed by Zaillian from teleplays by Price and Zaillian, THE NIGHT OF delves into the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. The story examines the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes.

    The 90-minute premiere of The Night Of airs on Sunday, July 10th at 10 pm ET/PT.

    This is my design

    I really liked the first episode, and want to show it to family/friends but I already know some of them are going to call the main character "stupid" for some of the decisions he makes and get frustrated.
     
  9. This is awesome. It really is a great portrayal so far on how the justice system works here in the US and how fucked/half-assed it can be. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds.

    What if...we dissolved the trust?

    So do we think there is any other explanation other than the main guy doing it or the guys that made those terrorism remarks?

    Also, I would assume things like the botched chain of custody will come up later on to hurt the case against the guy

    Yeah the way they shot and zoomed in on the other guy staring down the main character and the girl definitely planted that seed. Especially since when the detective questioned the guy taken in and asked if he was alone, then paused and said he was alone. Something is up with that.

    It may. Or it may not. Which is what I love about this show already. Like I said before, it showed how botched the justice system can be here.
     
  21. The guy at the gas station had a similar moment where it zoomed in on him. He could've followed them to her apartment.

    Yeah, but the guy at the gas station was pissed cuz of the cigarette. I didn't really look into him any further than that, but it's possible he had something to do with it. The second guy that was walking with the "terrorist comment" guy though, he's shady af

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Definitely not ruling out that Naz actually did do it. Do you guys think that we've already met whoever murdered the girl?

    Enjoyable second episode. Exactly what a second episode should be. Great set up after the initial introduction. Blah blah blah. I still am very intrigued.
