  • Law & Order : Mike & Connie

    9.0
    This episode is a crowd pleaser... the question of Mike and Connie- finally addressed very playfully within the context of a case. Spoilers: The writers bring a villain back and use him to the full- getting under the entire DA office's skin. Connie finds herself in the middle of the crossfire- both literally in a hotel and figuratively in the court room- resulting in situations where Cutter and Rubirosa have an uncomfortable heart to heart about "the birds and the bees" and later, Connie nails her 'co-conspirator' on the stand, resulting in a belly laugh for all and lots of smirking. Other than 'Strike', there are so few episodes that prominently feature Alana de la Garza or have the detectives engaged in a shoot out. For this and many other reaons- including Jonathan Cake playing one of the sleaziest lawyers ever- 'For the Defense' was one for the fans.
