The Firm. Ellenor is working on a laptop in the conference room. Rebecca The Martyr comes in, exclaiming, "So, it's all going to work out." Her co-worker explains that Helen now has custody of the case and they'll work out a better deal. Rebecca: "So that's great?" Ellenor responds by saying, "Yup." Only Ellenor isn't thrilled, because she lost a good friend this week. Yeah, and she didn't get any, either. Rebecca: "Is that all there is?" Ellenor doesn't like not being believed. Rebecca thought Kittleson was inclined to believe Ellenor's story. That's not enough, to be "inclined" -- Ellenor thinks that because she's "the fat girl" and Mitchell Wheeler is a good-looking man, no one flat-out believes what happened. Rebecca tries to placate her friend, "Oh, it isn't that, Ellenor!" Except it's that exactly. Ellenor: "Why would a man like Mitchell Wheeler make a pass at me? It's exactly that." Blah Kittleson, blah romantic desperation, blah gossip, blah baby, sperm donor blah had no choice. Ellenor says, "It couldn't possibly be because I wanted to be a single parent." Rebecca responds, "Well, before you spend the rest of your day feeling sorry for yourself, remember you did get a good result for the client." Only Ellenor's not placated; she insists that Rebecca's attitude is another bigotry that she faces, that "fat girls" just sit around feeling sorry for themselves. Hell, Ellenor's not feeling sorry for herself; she's damned mad. She's beyond mad; she's fuming, steam coming out of her ears and seeing red all over the place. With no more vacant platitudes on hand, the only response Rebecca can muster is a semi-smile with a nod. You go, Ellenor. You be pissed. You've got every right.
Suffering County Client Room. Miguel and Christina are praying together. Yawn. Could this be anymore contrived? Honestly. Give me a freaking break. There is a knock at the door. The jury is back.
Courtroom. The forewoman stands. She reads the verdict. Emily purses her lips. They find him guilty. The Reverend looks upset. Christina cries. The judge looks to the defendant and tries to end the trial, but changes his mind and overturns the verdict. He sets Miguel free. Lindsay and Jimmy look pleased. Emily cries. Christina and Miguel embrace. Helen puts her hand on her head in a gesture of utter disbelief. Puh-lease. The entire episode has been pointing us to the obvious conclusion that eyewitness testimony is unreliable. You all know what that means. Yup. You know it's coming. The Plot Twist.
