After the premiere’s introduction to the complicated murder mystery that is The Night Of, this week’s episode is focusing on the day after. In the stark light of day, Andrea Cornish’s murder is more horrific than ever. And we can only assume it’s going to be a huge news story in the city. But what’s in store for Naz?

In “Subtle Beast,” Naz will have to confront his parents, but it’s unclear how much he’ll say to them. He’s under orders to speak to no one, but Naz still doesn’t understand the system. For someone like him, wouldn’t it be more appealing to try and explain, using his broken memory, exactly what happened that night?

Naz’s eczema-ridden lawyer, John Stone, didn’t realize he signed up to defend an alleged murderer until it was too late. From what we gather, he’s spends most of his time defending petty thieves and the like rather than those in as much trouble as Naz is. And in last week’s “The Beach,” John seems especially nervous when he hears Dennis Box is the detective on the case, suggesting Box is notorious for being a tough detective.

In “Subtle Beast,” John and Box are going to come face to face, and it seems that John isn’t taking Box’s lip service. Although it seems like an easy conviction, John is quick to point out Naz hasn’t been charged with anything, suggesting there’s a lot more to the story for us to find out.

Considering how focused on Naz the premiere was, we’re thinking this week’s episode might start adding to our cast, as well as allowing us to get to know some of our other characters a little better. If there is a lot more to the story, could there be more suspects? What do we really know about Andrea, besides her penchant for drugs and alcohol? There’s still a lot of information we don’t have, but “Subtle Beast” could pull us closer to the answers we need.

The Night Of airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
