  • Bringing back an old DA for an episode with a great story

    9.5
    For anyone who has seen any episodes from the Jamie Ross days, this episode was definitely worth it just for the throwbacks. As much as I like the "Law" part of each episode, I always tend to like the "Order" part more, which was really well-written in this episode.



    It's a common L&O plotline to have that last piece of incriminating evidence to be just out of arm's reach, but the fact that Jamie Ross ended up being part of it made this episode better than the others, along with the dialogue between Jamie and Abbie (especially being so opposite in their beliefs). I almost wished they'd have a girlchat about Jack behind his back, just for laughs. Then, having a judge being put on trial added an extra punch, too. The guest stars (Judge Wolinsky and the original detective that worked the case) played their parts well, especially the indignation of the judge.



    I was almost shocked at how McCoy uses everything possible to get Jamie to testify against Wolinsky, but the last scene validates that, where McCoy volunteers to speak in front of the Disciplinary Committee to vouch for Jamie.



    Backhistory mixed in with a heavy-hitting trial makes this a great episode.moreless
