Rose and Thomasina discuss that evening's meal, and how healthy it will be. Rose drops the bomb that her nephew Andrew will be joining them for dinner, even though he was previously exiled from the kingdom. Thomasina looks a little unnerved by this news. Well, as unnerved as Thomasina ever looks, which is not that unnerved.
William is getting ready for the day in his minimalist house when he hears a noise. He starts looking around and finds his son, Andrew (played by Macaulay Culkin) walking down the stairs. They awkwardly shake hands, and William welcomes him home. So you get the vibe that the two aren't exactly tight, and haven't been in touch very often while Andrew has been exiled to wherever. But William does seem sincerely happy to see his son.
Silas finishes ruling on another case, and the crowd cheers yet again. Snivelling Aide tells Silas that David Shepherd is there, and would like a word. Before David can speak one word, Silas loudly gives a speech about David's bravery and presents him with a medal of valor. Quietly, he tells David that he can't publicly overturn a court's ruling on treason. On the sidelines, Jack complains to Katrina about David's medal, and then orders Katrina to go hear Michelle's case and keep her talking to delay her. Meanwhile, Jack goes out in the hallway and commiserates with David about what a dick Silas is. David defends Silas, but Jack says that Silas can't intercede in a lower court case unless it were... presented on Judgment Day? David didn't think that was possible, but Jack lets slip that they're currently choosing a new tenth case. Why, could Jack be pitting David against Michelle for his own purposes?
David and Jack arrive in the room just as Michelle is pleading her case to Katrina. Jack tries to plant seeds of doubt in David's mind, by saying that Michelle knew there was an opening and chose to present her own case instead of notifying David of the opportunity. David confronts Michelle about this in the hallway and asks her to give him the opening. In the background, Katrina compliments Jack on his masterful manipulation that put David and Michelle at odds. Jack stares real hard at Michelle and David and then swallows real hard as well. Jealous? Of your own sister? If Jack has truly laid off the boy toys, as he promised his mother he would, maybe he's just really pent up and needs to... relieve some stress, as it were.
Reverend Samuels's case is called. It turns out he's being sued by his church for allegedly embezzling half a million dollars and then losing it with an unwise investment. Samuels claims that his signature was forged on the documents, but Silas points out that the signature before him matches Samuels's signature. Silas does a little digging and figures out that Samuels signed a document without reading it, thinking he was signing off on moving choir practice to a different night. Silas orders the accountant to stand trial for theft and misrepresentation, since she's the one who stole the money. Okay, if it were that easy to crack the case, how did the initial judge get it wrong? Wouldn't that be a matter of concern? Because Silas figured it out in like ten seconds.
