Chambers. The judge gives Eugene a dirty look. He's taken aback. He says, "What? You think I knew that was coming?" The judge screams, "What exactly did he tell you he planned to say?" Blah alibi blah blah. Eugene continues, "He obviously didn't tell me what he planned to say because he feared I wouldn't put him up there." Helen insists that the judge call a mistrial. Jimmy jumps in with, "Double jeopardy!" Helen blurts, "Not when it's defense misconduct." Eugene argues, "We didn't know." Judge White says, "Mr. Young, if I find out you orchestrated this --" Eugene screams, "Come on!" Jimmy: "It doesn't even help us -- talk about him having no credibility before." The judge decides that Helen can either cross the witness now or he'll continue the case and let them investigate. In any kind of normal world, Helen would take the former, to make sure she's really got the right guy instead of just assuming she's got the right guy. Of course, Helen doesn't want either option. She wants to argue that the defendant was facing the three-strike law. Eugene says, "What?" Helen insists that it goes to bias, and explains why he had his brother lie on the stand. The judge doesn't allow it -- but it was a good try anyway. Anvil goes back to sleep. She's decided that this really isn't as exciting as she thought it might be. She yawns. Whispers, "You know the brother did it, right?" I give her a soft shove, damn her for ruining the surprise, and burst into giggles. Aw, Anvil. You're so much fun. I'm going to miss you when I hurl you into the television during the "shocking" season ender.
Helen's cross-examination. She's catty and sarcastic as she says, "So you just drove by, saw the victim, and raped her." Dr. Isaac says, "Yes." Has he ever raped anyone before? No. Has he ever committed a crime before? No. Okay, so what made the dude snap? Why did he just decide to rape the girl? Why don't they ask the relevant questions? Why doesn't anyone check behind his freaking ear? Nope, Helen just goes on further establishing the stereotype -- bad brother with a record has to be guilty, good brother with a degree and wads of cash has to be innocent. It's always the quiet ones. Huh. He explains that when Jerry was arrested, he stayed quiet because of Isaac's career, because of his family. See, Jerry didn't want Isaac to lose all that he had. Helen mocks the witness for a while. Blah brotherly love blah. Blah he made it out, blah made the family proud, blah sacrifice blah. Isaac ultimately couldn't go through with it. That's why he's there today. Helen says, "You know once your brother is acquitted, double jeopardy is attached and he can never be retried." Isaac tells her he's not a lawyer, but that he does understand what double jeopardy means. Helen: "If he's acquitted and you get arrested, he can testify at your trial that he did it." Eugene objects. The judge overrules. Isaac insists that his brother is innocent and that he's the one who did it.
