Will and his favourite lawyer, DA Gabe Fellowes, are walking through the police station as Fellowes insists he doesn't want to press charges against Burns. Neither does Will. Fellowes: "Middle of the night, this hardworking, solid citizen is in bed with the wife -- his own wife -- with his children asleep down the hallway." Will says it's the DA's decision whether to lay charges, and he'd be happy if Fellowes didn't. Fellowes plays Exposition Fairy: "He hears glass break downstairs. He fetches his properly licensed and registered weapon from the gun safe and loads it with ammunition he keeps in a locked box. He surprises an armed intruder." Will, who's got better things to do, tries to wrap it up: "Shots are exchanged, the good guy's left standing, the bad guy dies, choirs of angels sing. What do you want from me?" They've stopped in front of a vending machine, and Will buys something as Fellowes says he wants Will to say that Burns is a hero and that this isn't a murder case. Will agrees he is a hero. Fellowes: "I want you to say it to the press. Leave figure skaters out of it." I can't tell what Will buys -- it's something in a little yellow bag, maybe Jelly Tots. Actually, I mentioned Jelly Tots once before in a recap and I think I got a lot of mail from Americans asking what they are. Some kinda candy, okay? I can't eat candy, so don't bug me about it. Will thinks it wouldn't be smart for him to comment on the guilt or innocence of a suspect before the investigation is closed. Fellowes: "So complete the investigation and tell the press he's a hero." Will says that's what he plans to do. Fellowes, surprised: "You're not fighting me on this?" Will: "No. We're in complete agreement." He claps Fellowes on the arm and takes off. Fellowes calls out, "I find that disconcerting."
