Suffering County Courthouse. An expectant Lindsay and Jimmy are waiting to hear from the Reverend. He comes in, breathless, and announces that his mystery man isn't going to come forward. The dude doesn't want to go to jail. Ah, it's so hard to do the right thing. Lindsay: "Assuming we can clear hearsay problems, would you be willing to testify?" Reverend Crane: "Absolutely not." Blah confession, blah Miguel's going down, blah hands are tied blah. Crane won't dishonour his oath. Ha. Oddly, Jimmy doesn't have the same problem, because he hands the minister a subpoena. This episode is just so shoddy. Funny how Law & Order had a whole storyline this week about a Catholic priest protecting a guilty man. Maybe DEK read a spoiler, decided to one-up his competitor, and pulled together this ridiculous episode. Blah betray the confidence, blah lose his job, blah he could lose his church, blah dee blah blah. Jimmy insists that he doesn't feel good about what he's doing, but he's got to go to the mat for the client. Jimmy: "You have information that could exonerate my client of murder. We have no choice here." Sure you have a choice, Jimmy -- do some investigating, try to find the congregant on your own, talk to some people at the church, and don't just assume the Reverend is telling the damn truth.
Suffering County Holding Cell. Maynard is freaking out. He's bouncing all over the place like a pinball on speed. Damn. He can't believe he could get ten years for boosting a stereo for his mother. You know, something tells me she'd have been just as happy to get a card. Maynard continues to freak out like his life is over. And it kind of is if Mitchell continues his not-so-honourable quest for justice. Poor Maynard; he screws up his face like he's about to burst into tears and screams, "Ellenor!" He bounces a bit more like Tigger and then asks, "What's going on?" She responds, "Just let me work on it." For a second there, I thought she said, "Just let me work it." Which might have been the appropriate response, judging from Mitchell's lecherous intentions.
