American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson returns with its second episode on 9 February, where the former professional footballer will go missing, and his lawyers – Robert Kardashian and Robert Shapiro – will be left to deal with the fallout.
Warning: Potential spoilers ahead.
Episode 2 is titled, The Run Of His Life, which airs on Tuesday at 10pm ET/PT on FX. The official synopsis of the episode reads as follows:
With O.J. Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr.) missing in the white Bronco, Robert Shapiro (John Travolta) and Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) deal with the fallout, as the D.A.'s office and LAPD scramble to save face and find him.
According to the latest promo, the upcoming episode will begin with a car chase where OJ Simpson is seated in the back seat of a white Bronco, holding a gun to his head. The scene is more of a manhunt across America, where police are trying to nab the former footballer.
The driver of the car then dials 911 to report the matter. He yells on the phone, "I have OJ in my car. He has got a gun to his head. Tell the police to back off." This is followed by news flash of Simpson trying to escape, as Robert Kardashian says, "Its on every channel." His lawyer sees the news and says, "Good for you OJ. You are still in the game."
Then we see OJ call someone and say, "I deserve to get hurt," on the other side, Marcia Clark, the head prosecutor in case says, "I want him to finish this day alive. I want him to pay for what he has done."
