I've always liked Jami Gertz and it was good to see her here as the woman on trial. This was a good episode for Jessica, as we got to see more of her life and how she's developed. Her reaction when she discovered her friend was living a lie was quite good and I liked thier conversation with Gertz accusing her of doing almost the same thing with her own life, which makes me want to know more of Jessica's past.
As usual, Stark was in good form, trying to get the case won and the truth found out while battling Jessica. Having the case be a parrallel to his problems with Julie was a bit much but I like seeing Stark still deal with his shortcomings as a father and trying to help her out. Overall, a nice case with good twists and turns with a killer who's not really that bad, a fine example of how this series is growing.
