    I'm not usually a fan of multi-part stories, but this one was pretty well done. I liked the first part best because there was a second case (about the painting) which was terrific. The two worked well together. I didn't like Part 2 very much but the conclusion was terrific.

    Oddly enough, I had the whole thing figured out, which almost never happens and it was fun to be right - for a change! :) Jean Smart should get an Emmy nomination for her performance as a psychotic - as the Judge said -District Attorney who tried manipulated and/or threatened people to do her bidding.

    I really don't like the new soundtrack but the show is still very good. I hope it gets back to the more inspirational story lines that the first season featured. It would also be nice to see Rachel again. I like the new cast members. Cassie and Oliver are good fine to the show.moreless

    They had their first case that lasted this long, they built up three episodes around this thing and that is how they end it? They just have the case thrown out like that? It was tantamount to a slap in the face of all of the fans who invested time with this show. They had a twist at the end with the killer being the daughter, but why? Why not just give us the "case of the century" like they advertised?moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The front of courthouse shown in the episode is the Potter Stewart United States Courthouse. It is located at 100 East Fifth Street in Cincinnati and houses the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. It is named after Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Potter Stewart (1915–1985), who served on the high court from October 14, 1958 to July 3, 1981.

    • Adam tells us Cassie's nickname is "The Smart Bomber" because of her excellent cross-examination skills when she worked at the D.A.'s office.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Harry: Take any medication, sir?
      James Sanders: Yes, I take Lithium.
      Harry: How long have you been taking lithium, sir?
      James Sanders: Since I was 14.
      Harry: Do you consider yourself a mentally balanced individual, sir?
      James Sanders: Does anybody? (laughter)

    • Harry: (Tommy takes Harry by the arm and pulls her into his office) What? What are you doing?
      Tommy: (pulls up a chair for her) OK. You need to listen to me. (closes his office door) You're not having fun. You need to be having fun here, Harry.
      Harry: Fun? A man's life is on the line. If I lose he might be put to death.
      Tommy: Even so.
      Harry: Even? Tommy, what's wrong with you? You think is all cause for amusement?
      Tommy: I think you're 62 years old, I'm in my 50's, and it won't be long until you're the woman who used to Harry Korn, and I'll be the guy that used to be Tommy Jefferson. You hear me, Harry? We're not far from our 'used to be' years. Right now, you're in the game. The world is watching. A man's life is in the balance and you're right smack in the middle of it. (sighs) This may be the most irrelevant 15 minutes you'll ever know and, trust me, you do not want to wake up 10 years from now and say 'My God, why didn't I savor it?' So, yeah, it's pressure. Yes, there's stress but savor the moment because tomorrow we could be yesterday. That's what I'm saying. (Harry nods)

    • Eric Sanders: It's a little dangerous making my testify, isn't it?
      Harry: Beyond. We talked about Remmick. Do not take the bait, do not show any flashes of anger and of course don't hit her on the head. (Eric laughs)
