Saint Anne's Hospital. Lucy bounds in and walks toward the front desk in the emergency ward. "Lucy Hatcher," she announces, "Rape Crisis." The nurse points to a room and says, "Over there." Lucy opens the door to the room and sees an elderly woman lying in a bed. The Coda Of Crisis decides it wants some action too. Lucy is stunned. She sort of pauses, and then walks toward the woman and says, "Ms. Walters. I'm Lucy Hatcher from Rape Crisis." The victim's face is bruised, and her injuries look very painful. Lucy grabs her hand. Which, according to Lucy's own admonition last season, is an inappropriate reaction. Ms. Walters looks tenderly at Lucy and thanks her for coming. Ah, she's two steps away from sainthood, that Lucy. Yawn. While still holding her hand, Lucy tells Ms. Walters that she's just going to explain some of the procedures.
Suffering County Courthouse. The witness on the stand is pointing at a large board with an image of a man's head. It has red lines indicating the trajectory of the fatal gunshot wound. According to the expert, the shot was heading down instead of heading up. This means that Katie's lover was killed. He didn't commit suicide; someone shot him at close range from behind. Bobby points out that, typically, close-range shots to the head are suicide. The doctor agrees. However, he wants to add something, but Bobby doesn't let him. Blah medical certainty, blah suicide, blah. Again, the doctor responds that he can't rule it out "to a medical certainty, no." Again, you can tell he wants to add something else, only Rod doesn't allow it. Bobby continues to hound the doctor about his original cause of death: probable suicide. Blah they later concluded blah incorrect. Rod: "Did you take into consideration other physical or circumstantial evidence?" The doctor admits that they looked at all of the evidence. Rod says, "Thank you, doctor."
Rebecca is sitting with a young woman who doesn't understand why the defense is going to put Mr. Potter's reputation on trial. Because she's never heard of the law. Because she's never even seen a lawyer before. Because she's never watched television or seen The Accused. Truly, she's lived in a bubble her entire life. What. Freaking. Ever. Blah. Rebecca tries to explain. Then she asks if the secretary knew if Potter (please don't tell me his name is Harry) was having any other affairs. Not to her knowledge, but she doesn't know the every move of her boss. Rebecca: "But as his secretary you'd know the calls he got and see who walked into his office." Well, according to her, the only person was Ms. Dafoe. Damn. It's not looking good for Rod's little honey. But if we all know one thing for sure right now, it's that DEK never gives us anything in a straightforward way; of course someone is setting Katie up, and of course she is innocent.
