    ERIK CONFIDES IN HIS PSYCHOLOGIST, DR. OZIEL, AND MAKES A SHOCKING CONFESSION - Seemingly innocuous comments Lyle (Miles Gaston Villanueva) previously made about his parents come back to haunt him when detectives Zoeller (Sam Jaeger) and Linehan (Cliff Chamberlain) begin to interview the brothers' friends and acquaintances. Erik (Gus Halper), overcome by guilt, makes a shocking confession to his psychologist, Dr. Jerome Oziel (Josh Charles). Having overheard a therapy session with Lyle and Erik, Oziel's mentally unhinged mistress Judalon Smyth (Heather Graham) goes to the police with a pivotal tip after Oziel tries to cut ties with her to protect his family. As attorney Leslie Abramson (Edie Falco) learns more about the Menendez family dynamics, she makes a move to represent the brothers.

    "EPISODE 3"
    10/10/2017 (10:01PM - 11:00PM) (Tuesday)

    NATIONAL MEDIA ATTENTION REACHES A FEVER PITCH AS THE CASE GOES TO COURT - With Lyle (Miles Gaston Villanueva) and Erik (Gus Halper) in custody for suspicion of murder, defense attorney Leslie Abramson (Edie Falco) works tirelessly alongside Jill Lansing (Julianne Nicholson) to understand the motive that could drive two young men to commit such a heinous crime. Meanwhile, the prosecution puts Judalon Smyth (Heather Graham) on the stand to make a case for releasing Dr. Oziel's (Josh Charles) audio notes and tapes from his sessions with Lyle and Erik, despite standard doctor-patient privilege. The ensuing media circus - fueled by leaks from the District Attorney's office - creates further complications for the defense and places the extended Menendez family at odds with one another.
