Attorneys in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer charged with killing George Floyd are set to make their closing arguments Monday, each side seeking to distill three weeks of testimony to persuade jurors to deliver their view of the right verdict. For prosecutors, Derek Chauvin recklessly squeezed the life from Floyd as he and two other officers pinned him to the street for 9 minutes, 29 seconds outside a corner market, despite Floyd's repeated cries that he couldn't breathe — actions they say warrant conviction not just for manslaughter but also on two murder counts. For the defense, Floyd, who was Black, put himself at risk by swallowing fentanyl and methamphetamine, then resisted officers trying to arrest him — factors that compounded his vulnerability to a diseased heart and raise sufficient doubt that Chauvin, who is white, should be acquitted.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday’s series premiere of the HBO limited series “Mare of Easttown.”) For the better part of the first episode of HBO’s new Kate Winslet-led limited series, “Mare of Easttown,” viewers might have been confused about why they were following the story of teenage mother Erin McMenamin (Cailee Spaeny) as closely as they were watching Winslet’s Detective Mare Sheehan. After all, Mare, a small-town Pennsylvania detective, is the clear protagonist of the show who is haunted by her inability to solve the case of her friend’s missing daughter, Katie Bailey, and never once crosses paths with Erin. But in the closing moments of Sunday’s series premiere, it became apparent that we were following Erin because she was about to become Mare’s next case, as we cut to her dead body lying in the woods. Speaking to TheWrap, creator and showrunner Brad Ingelsby and director and executive producer Craig Zobel broke down the reasoning behind following Erin and Mare equally throughout the first episode. “I think what we were trying to achieve is that the opening episode very much structurally is these two women, but how are they connected?” Ingelsby told us. “Why am I with this young girl and then I’m with Mare? It’s sort of like a collision course that we had set up, which is, it’s these two women on these two separate tracks and how are they going to collide? Why are they going to collide? And then how does this death at the end of one, how does it relate back to Katie? And does it relate back to Katie? If so, how are they connected? Why are they connected?” Also Read: Gabriel Luna Joins HBO's 'The Last of Us' Series HBO Ingelsby said leaving viewers with all those questions “raises the stakes” by the end of the series premiere, given that “you have this lingering issue with Katie Bailey and what’s happened to her, and is Mare going to be able to figure out what happened to Katie? That, of course, is “compounded” by Erin’s death, because she’s not just missing, she’s actually dead. “Now the community’s like, it’s a second girl, you still don’t know what happened to Katie. We just felt like it was a nice way to raise the stakes at the end of Episode 1,” Ingelsby continued. “Also, it was sort of a way to, I think, structurally tell a different story. In a lot of crime dramas, you sort of open with the death and the investigation really starts from the opening shot. Whereas in this episode, it’s kind of a slice of life show, really. And then it kind of ends with a bang, which is, ‘Oh, wow.'” Also Read: Ellen DeGeneres Takes Furniture Design to a Very Intense Level in Trailer for HBO Max Competition (Video) Zobel (HBO’s “The Leftovers”) who directed not just this episode, but every episode of the seven-installment limited series, tipped his hat to actress Spaeny for getting you to care about Erin before you have any real reason to do so. “I wanted to make sure that you really wanted to follow her story, and I find Cailee Spaeny to be an incredible actor and really interesting,” Zobel said. “And having her story feel like there’s going to be some sort of intersection. You’re not quite sure exactly what that is. By doing that in the first episode, it gives you a different level of context for all of the episodes that happen after that. Because they’re not just a dead body; you knew that person.” And Mare’s journey to find out what happened to that person, who you now know just as well as the detective, is just beginning. “Mare of Easttown” airs Sundays at 10/9c on HBO.
