Turk Case. Dowd and Bennett are talking Turk into meeting with Sweren personally, and we learn that Mrs. Turk has "kind of moved out." When Dowd offers his sympathies -- I'm shocked he doesn't go all, "bitches, man!" -- Turk says, "It wasn't exactly her choice. I kinda helped her pack." Bennett suggests that it wouldn't be the worst thing for the two Turks to reconcile, especially if they go to trial. Turk gets all antsy about the idea of going to trial because, apparently Dowd promised it wouldn't be necessary. Before they can get into Bennett's point, an underling runs in with a DVD from the ADA. Bennett sighs that the ADA isn't coming, and they play the DVD. It shows Turk at batting practice -- or spring training or the company's softball playoffs or some such baseball stuff -- precisely aiming foul balls at a tank of water. Ruh-roh! Bennett goes on about how their defense for Turk's case was going to be "who in the world could hit a ball accurately enough to kill?" and now they need to discuss options. Turk gets pissed and leaves, saying they're his lawyers, so they need to figure it out. Dowd and Bennett go though another round of loud disagreeing on the case. Dowd wants them to enter a not guilty plea, and Bennett thinks he needs to get over his Jayson Turk lunchbox and deal with the reality of the case. As they're going before their judge tomorrow, Dowd asks, "If we can get the [DVD] excluded, will you get behind a straight acquittal?" "That's a pretty huge if," Bennett tells him quietly.
