  • With spoilers all around rarely am I shocked by anything that happens on a TV show but this one got me!

    First the defendent in this piece Jackie Cahill was just plain creepy. Good looking but creepy. The way he threatened Helen and Richard during the case was subtle but not if you know what I mean. Then he sends one of his thugs to threaten Richard in his own home. Richard gets out of his car in his garage and is grabbed from behind and shoved up against the wall with a gun pointed at him. The thug tells him to throw the case against Jackie or pay the price. Richard goes into court scared to death unsure of what to do but in the end decides to prosecute Jackie with full vigor. Jason Kravits did an outstanding job showing Richard's fear and determination. But it was the ending that really blew me away. The case is over Richard is in the parking garage in his car preparing to leave when a car pulls up behind him. It's an elderly woman who wants his parking spot. He is relieved. As he starts his car the back window of the elderly woman's car slowly comes down a gun appears and instantly shoots dozens of bullets into Richard's car killing him. I never saw that coming and when it did I was stunned and a little sad. I always loved Richard Bay on this show and now I would see him no more. :(moreless
