Night Court Season 2 Storyline:
The night court is run by Abby Stone, who is the child of the late Judge Harry Stone. Like her dad, she cares about the accused as individuals and wants to spend her time with the case, which makes the busy courthouse staff mad.
When the public defense quits, Abby hires Dan Fielding, who used to be an assistant district attorney as well as is friends with her father, to take over.
Dan doesn’t want to fill in for the next few weeks because he has been work as process server since the death of his wife. In the meantime, Gurgs is looking for someone who broke into the building.
Dan has a hard time understanding his clients because he is used to being a lawyer. Dan pays Gurgs to talk to his customers for him when Abby tells him to put in more effort.
Dan starts to take his job seriously only after talking to a mentally sick suspect. This makes Abby think he will continue on for an extended period of time.
At the same time, Abby tells the staff to add their own pieces to the courtroom, which ends up going badly; Olivia is being followed by a stenographer who wants to be her best friend; as well as the janitor has to deal with a pigeon problem.
Abby accidentally tells everyone that a suspect is an undercover police officer while she is trying to stop him from breaking the law all the time.
She acts very businesslike in court because she thinks her friendly personality is making things worse instead of better. Abby treats Dan badly when he tries to fix this overcorrection.
Daniel knows that Abby’s desire to help others comes from the fact that she is a recovering drinker, just like Dan’s late wife. There was a lot of time she missed with her father because she drank, but he live enough time to see her do well in recovery.
Dan tells her that the Hank would never have thought she let him down. She goes back to how she was before. At the same time, Olivia finds it hard to adjust when the cops take away the benefits she had been having.
She thinks this is an unfair response to what happened in court, so she questions the officers. However, she accidentally tells an Internal Affairs agent about the unethical benefits, whose appearance was the real reason for the change.
Abby asks Gurgs to assist her use the legal system to find an empty apartment because she is unhappy with where she is living. When they find the perfect place, the owner won’t rent to Abby because he knows she is a judge.
Abby gets more and more angry at not being able to make use of time with her distant fiancé, so she does what Dan tells her to do and destroys her work space.
At the same time, Olivia meets a lawyer who almost signed her for a big job but turned down her application because she looked bad in public. Dan tells Olivia to prove herself in court because he remembers an embarrassing encounter of his own. It doesn’t matter though because Olivia’s lawyer brings someone else to court instead.
There isn’t an official story summary for Night Court Season 2 yet, but loose ends in Season 1 give fans a good idea of what to expect from the second season.
Now that Abby as well as Rand’s (Pete Holmes) failed engagement is over, Season 2 will probably bring more love for Manhattan’s bubbliest judge. In Season 1, Neil’s crush in Abby was well known.
But as the season went on, Abby seemed to kill any chance of a relationship. Since Abby isn’t engaged anymore and Neil’s date with Gabby went well, Season 2 might bring back some feelings among the two.
The show’s description from NBC is below: “The eternally optimistic Abby Stone following in the footsteps of her revered late dad, Judge Harry Stone, as she steps on the difficult task of overseeing the night schedule of a Manhattan arraignment court.”
The only thing we can guess is that the second season will pick up right where season 1 left off. We’ll add story information for the following season here as they come in.
