The Trial of Danny Santos

Part of the purpose of this blog is to create an episode guide for the Manny storyline. These posts, which include a description of the episode complete with the dates and quotes, usually cover a couple of episodes. I include the best Manny highlight clips that I can find and also full episodes when I can find them for days Manny appeared. I try to post episode guide posts every Monday and Thursday nights, although real life sometimes interferes with reel life and I often only get one done a week and sometimes have to let it go a couple of weeks in between.

A New Chapter

After I publish the episode guide I copy the entry over to pages so that people can easily pick up the story at any point. To make particular sections easier to find, I’ve broken them into pages, each one depicting a particular chapter aka umbrella storyline for Manny from “In the Beginning” to “Our Hun-NEE-Moon” and beyond. This last episode guide post ended one chapter and started another.

Trial Begins

Chapter 8 was Perfect Storm because it seemed like everything came after Manny at once. Basically anything that the writers could throw at them was. They weathered Carmen & Claire’s manipulation to part them forever, Carmen’s kidnapping Michelle, Danny shooting his mother and the guilt it drove him to. They were under fire from both the FBI and the mob. They were betrayed by Abuela and May, even Tony wavered before standing strong. Michelle was kidnapped and Danny was shot. May’s betrayal, an actual armed attack on their house, and strong arming by the mob. However, through bravery, cunning, and support from Tony and Ray, Rick and Meta, and Ross and Blake they’ve overcome every one until only one remains. Now the only threat that remains is Gus Aitoro. Even the main FBI have lost interest, but rogue agent Gus is hard on their trail.

So Chapter 9 The Trial of Danny Santos starts. Aitoro had very personal reasons that we haven’t learned about yet to go after Danny (OK it was really a pretty bad reason even after we do learn all about it but he seems to think it justifies all his actions and that’s the story the show is going with). He had even broken into the Bauer House test fired Danny’s gun and planted the slug with “Carmen’s” bones. In the last post (and I’ll repeat it), Danny is arrested and the trial of Danny Santos begins. A new challenge for everyone.
