FX (ended 2010)
|The person Julia killed was all burnt and disfigured, so I guess there was a mistake made and it wasn't really her mother, which means Julie wrongly killed an innocent person! That's why it was so shocking when she got home and her mother was there waiting for her, and she said she got an earlier flight or something!|
|Julia's medical training did save other people's lives and she was available to talk to people who needed comforting. She wasn't just some cold-hearted avenger of childhood wrongs. And physical pain or not, that woman was not in a good situation, and she had been triaged into the "nothing we can do" pile. |
I couldn't believe she was even still alive when she drew that scary-ass breath.
And from Julia's perspective, she was at that moment the closest family that person had, in that she had reason to believe it was her mother.
Also, sorry, but Julia with a pillow or airline with a plane crash -- who's exposed for bucketloads more damages here?
Meh, they wrote this so that people with strong views one way or t'other would never agree. All I can say is that if I were in a jury and Julia was brought up for it, personally, I'd vote to acquit, based on what facts would be brought into evidence.
that's a toughie
Personally I think she killed "Erica" to sort of get over a personal obstacle and to relieve her own mom's pain.
If she knew that person wasn't her mom, she would have most likely tried to get soem pain killers for the woman.
The problem is, Julia didn't kill her "mother" to end her pain. She killed her because she wanted her mother gone from her life.
The fact that she killed the wrong person only compounds the crime. Unfortunately, the show never returns to addressthis interesting twist.
Maybe because the character of Julia is such an egocentric **** the writers figured she had gotten over it.
