In a conference room, Maggie finishes something up and asks Marci for new orders, but Marci says she can go home. Maggie points out that it's only ten, so Marci leans and tells her that whatever she may have heard, she's not a monster. Someone caught that Medusa crack. Maggie starts to pack up, but Marci casts an appraising look her way and offers that she knows how hard this case must be on her. Maggie "plays" dumb, so Marci goes on that she and Jordan once "had a thing," before he was married. I expected that, but only because the actors played the tension so well. She overshares that they used to take each other on in court, "and outside of court," and I'm betting Maggie's going to get a lot more efficient at packing up her stuff in the near future. Anyway, Maggie's FINALLY figuring out which way the wind is blowing, and tries to get out of there, but Marci's in full flight now, wanting to know why illegal aliens and kids get such great representation from Eli, while their higher-end clients seem to get his B game. Maggie blurts that in the Salinsky case, Eli did everything he could to evacuate Silver Terrace, and that's all Marci needs -- she knows the difference between "evacuate" and "evict," and also that the epicenter of the alleged upcoming earthquake is supposed to be Silver Terrace, and she orders Maggie to sit and tell her everything she knows about Eli, Silver Terrace, and "imaginary earthquakes." Maggie tries to say that those things were told to her in confidence, but Marci tells her she's obligated to reveal them now. I'm not sure that that's true, but if it is, it's just too bad Maggie couldn't have anticipated this move!
