    I am starting to feel sad for helen gamble, sure she is hard and heartless in court but this is just sad how she keep losing, even when they lower her to domestic violence cases. The actress playing the victim was really believable, she got pushed down a flight of stairs by her husband and press charges but halfway through trial she changed her story and now she believe the push wasnt intentional. Nice scene at the end, being convicted of domestic violence i know that sometimes its not what it seems but he actually did it and helen knows it. I dont know was her compassion was the result of her wanting a win or was it genuine. Whatever the case is, she needs to win soon. Now to bobby case, they are still trying to get a new trial,so when the appeals court granted a perjury hearing he was all ready to win it. But they got judge wolf again, the judge at the first trial, so he was a bit angry that his case and ruling was questioned. So he wouldnt let helen testify out of "ego" (bobby words) but when the brother that committed perjury plead the 5th, it made the judge wonder "did he really lie on the stand". Conviction got overturned and we get a new trial,and the surprise that both lindsay and elenor is pregnant is a great way to end the night. Life is grand when you have the practice everyday,this is my 3rd time watching the show in its entirety and i dont mean the episode i mean all 8 seasons.moreless

    The Scott Wallace story line continues. I was not crazy about this one mainly due to Scotts character. I don’t think he was likeable or very sympathetic. But we had a very good scene with Lucy sticking her big nose in trying to figure out who is pregnant in the office. The case that Helen had shows how driven she can be. A topic that I thought was missed was that if the woman wants to drop a charge whats the big deal. Is she a adult or not. If a man was in a fight and he wants to drop charges not a word be said. But with a woman it is different. I think with Helen and how she is a strong woman that she dropped the ball on this one.moreless
