* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': After Mariah Dillard kills Cottonmouth in the heat of a fight, she and Shades pay off Candace Miller to provide a false story to the police implicating Luke Cage in the crime. The two of them also make sure to send in [[AmoralAttorney Ben Donovan]], a crooked attorney in Wilson Fisk's pocket and who bailed Cottonmouth out of custody a few episodes earlier, to make sure that Candace doesn't deviate from the cover story when Misty Knight interrogates her. The first words out of Donovan's mouth when he enters the room mid-interrogation are "Don't say another word, Miss Miller. I'm representing you now," and, since she's not under arrest, he insists that she not answer any questions and walk out.
