Great episode!! One of the best :)
This episode was fantastic!
This was a skillfully scripted episode. The murder case was really no more than an aside to the real story of father-son relationships and the impact on the psychological development of the son.
The episodes like this that push the puzzle pieces together are great!

Young Jane: We're stealing from a dying girl.
Jane's Dad: Yeah, we're all dying, kid. We're all dying. But what we're giving her, because yeah, she'll be dead by Tuesday and needs it more than most, is hope. Huh? Do you get that?
Young Jane: I can't do it.
Jane's Dad: Okay. All right. You're either with the show or you're not. You're a loser or you're someone who plays the losers.

Cho: Actually, I tore my ACL. Nice try.
