An all new episode of AMC's Revolutionary War era spy thriller "TURN: Washington's Spies" airs the following night, Monday, June 6th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. This season builds towards one of the most notorious moments in American history - the treasonous defection of Benedict Arnold (Owain Yeoman). Behind enemy lines on Long Island, Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell) is a spy for the Patriots, reporting directly to George Washington (Ian Kahn). Embedded within the Continental Army, Benedict Arnold is seduced to become an informant for the British. As the consequences of their espionage ripple through the battlefield, the spy game becomes a heart-stopping race to see which mole will be unmasked first. In 1778, there is only one fate that awaits a captured spy - the hangman's noose. The price for treason is blood, and not all of our heroes will survive.
On the seventh episode, "Judgement" - written by Scott Gunnison Miller and directed by Omar Madha - Mary tries to kill Simcoe on her own. Benedict Arnold defends himself in his court-martial. Ben reunites with the woman who saved his life.
