'''''Episode 2: Turnabout Corner''''' is the second case in ''[[Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney]]'' and follows on two months after the [[Turnabout Trump|previous case]]. It marks the first official appearances of Detective [[Ema Skye]] and rock star/prosecutor [[Klavier Gavin]], and [[Trucy Wright]] begins to take on the more prominent role of Apollo Justice's assistant. It also formally and fully introduces Justice's ability to [[bracelet|perceive]] witnesses' nervous behaviors.

'''''Episode 2: Turnabout Corner''''' is the second case in ''[[Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney]]''. Two months after losing his job at [[Gavin Law Offices]] as a result of his [[Turnabout Trump|first trial]], [[Apollo Justice]] visits [[Phoenix Wright]]'s [[Wright Anything Agency|old office]] and is immediately pulled into investigating three separate incidents that happened the previous night. With Phoenix's daughter [[Trucy Wright|Trucy]] helping him out, Justice learns that these seemingly unrelated events are actually connected to a fourth, more serious incident: a murder allegedly committed by the [[Wocky Kitaki|son]] of local crime lords [[Winfred Kitaki|Winfred]] and [[Plum Kitaki]]. In taking the case, Justice discovers more about the strange power of his [[bracelet]] and is introduced to his [[Kristoph Gavin|ex-mentor's]] brother, [[Klavier Gavin]], who goes up against him on the prosecutor's bench. This episode also reintroduces Detective [[Ema Skye]], whose [[Rise from the Ashes|once-cheerful demeanor]] has largely given way to cynicism and disappointment at failing to achieve her dreams.

The case in ''Turnabout Corner'' plays out in a straightforward fashion compared to the other cases in ''Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney'', as it is the only one to conclude with the successful submission of genuine decisive evidence to solve the case.

Nonetheless, the idea of several seemingly simple and unrelated incidents being connected is a foreshadowing of future events, implied as Phoenix intentionally preparing Apollo Justice for ''[[Turnabout Succession]]''.

Turnabout Corner
Transcript
Trucy Wright
All sorts of things come out of my panties. Even the truth.

Episode 2: Turnabout Corner is the second case in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. Two months after losing his job at Gavin Law Offices as a result of his first trial, Apollo Justice visits Phoenix Wright's old office and is immediately pulled into investigating three separate incidents that happened the previous night. With Phoenix's daughter Trucy helping him out, Justice learns that these seemingly unrelated events are actually connected to a fourth, more serious incident: a murder allegedly committed by the son of local crime lords Winfred and Plum Kitaki. In taking the case, Justice discovers more about the strange power of his bracelet and is introduced to his ex-mentor's brother, Klavier Gavin, who goes up against him on the prosecutor's bench. This episode also reintroduces Detective Ema Skye, whose once-cheerful demeanor has largely given way to cynicism and disappointment at failing to achieve her dreams.

The case in Turnabout Corner plays out in a straightforward fashion compared to the other cases in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, as it is the only one to conclude with the successful submission of genuine decisive evidence to solve the case. The other cases' resolutions play into the overall message of the game that evidence is not completely reliable for settling cases even when anybody can see what the solution is. Nonetheless, the idea of several seemingly simple and unrelated incidents being connected is a foreshadowing of future events, implied as Phoenix intentionally preparing Apollo Justice for Turnabout Succession.

IntroEdit

The camera slowly zooms away from a wheel that is turning.

As long as we draw breath, the Wheel of Fate turns...

There are brief scenes of Phoenix Wright about to get hit by a car, Trucy Wright chasing someone, and a man playing on his harmonica. Afterward, it is shown that the wheel is part of a stand being pulled by a man late in the evening. Everything except the wheels is silhouetted in darkness.

Spinning big crimes and little crimes together.

The man suddenly stops.

And when the Wheel stops...

The camera pans to another man blocking the stand-puller's way. As the camera begins to zoom away, there is a flash from a gunshot. The camera accelerates, showing part of a park before obscuring the scene behind some towers.

You die.
