"Prodigal Son" -- When the D.A.'s office accuses a recovering alcoholic for the murder of his niece, painful secrets are revealed about a similar murder case involving the defendant's mother 25 years earlier, on CLOSE TO HOME, Friday, Dec. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The episode was directed by Anthony Hemingway from a script by Antoinette Stella and William N. Fordes.

The defense argues that their client suffers from severe depression and had a psychotic break which was triggered by the anniversary of his mother's death. Annabeth and Maureen argue that the defendant's behavior is part of a larger pattern of drunken violence and he must be brought to justice. The case takes a turn when secrets are revealed about the first murder, leaving Annabeth to question the details of both cases.
