  • Wonderful Connie episode

    I have liked Alana De La Garza from day 1 and think she has been a terrific addition to the show. Her interactions with Cutter and McCoy are enjoyable and Jack's new role has worked out well. This episode provides Connie with a chance to shine as, due to a legal aid strike and shortage of defense lawyers, a judge assigns her to defend the man she showed in court to arraign. She ends up on the other side and does such a terrific job defending her client that Cutter confides to Jack that she 'eviscerated' him in court and they both agree that they'd be in trouble if she went to work for the other side. Connie's determination to stick to her principles and Jack's defense of her are great moments.
    This was a refreshingly new episode and I have not seen a plot like this before. Season 18 has been my favorite by far since the final Briscoe and Green year. I was concerned that the show would lose a lot with the departure of Jesse Martin, but so far I like Anthony Anderson. I think he's a good addition to the team.
