Helen's Office Where Pain Equals Mistakes. Said "bitch," Callie Fairbanks, is in Helen's office. Who knows what day it is. Callie says incredulously, "You lost the evidence?" Callie has pale blonde hair and kind of looks like Susanna Thompson from Once & Again. I'm sad that that show is cancelled. Right, back to The Craptice. Helen says, "Callie, we can still win." How? "Well, right now it comes down to your word, which is very compelling." Callie squints at the D.A. and replies, "You don't look so sure, Helen." Helen is sure. In fact, she's quite prepared to go forward with the trial. But she would also be willing to go and offer Jerry "Jigglefoot" Cochran eight years. Callie explodes, "Eight?" Helen insists that it's a conviction; it takes him off the streets. Plus, a trial could be very unpleasant. Why are all the victims in Helen's office women? Or mothers? Or parents of dead children? Why are all the bad guys at The Firm so totally demented? Honestly. Are there not any other crimes in DEK's imagination beyond murder and rape? Yawn. Right. Callie says, "Eight is not an option, not for what he did to me." Helen says, "Okay." And then she tells Callie to meet her at the courtroom so she can give her testimony. There's a knock at the door, and Rod just glides in. Callie leaves. Rod pretends that Helen sits around all day waiting for him to majestically appear. He doesn't say hello, he doesn't ask if he's interrupting, he just barks, "You get him yet?" Helen picks up a file, not bothered by his audacity in the least, and answers, "Noon. I'm going on the ride personally to make sure things aren't anymore unconstitutional than necessary." Bobby asks if it's possible to "do this" without Lindsay testifying. Apparently, she's not in very good shape. Yeah, I guess that's what a stabbing and two stalkers will do to someone. Helen: "Bobby, even with Lindsay, this is a long shot. We need her to say how afraid she is of this guy, otherwise --" Rod insists that anything Lannibal may have said to Lindsay, he was there for. Ah, what a mighty, mighty good man. He'll stand up and protect his wife from the big bad cannibal. Yawn. Helen says, "We need her. Look. I'm not going to bother picking him up if I can't count on her." Bobby continues, "You saw how she was last night." Helen did -- but do they want Lannibal in custody or not? Rod nods his head and lets out a sigh large enough to blow the CN Tower off kilter.
