The Firm. Joey Heric is on a talk show, discussing the case. Joey Heric. Why? Underneath his name, the caption says, "Attorney At Law." Not "Manipulative Murderer" or "Egomaniac," just "Attorney At Law." Joey tells the host that he considers both Lindsay and Bobby his friends. Then he editorializes, "Between the two of them, I think Bobby is more likely to kill somebody." Lucy snarks, "Why are they talking to him?" The "lawyer" continues, "I'm not saying he did it, I just know he's gallant and that he'd take the fall for his wife." Joey looks right into the camera: "I just have my doubts." Pause. "Reasonable doubts. I hope that helps." Heh. Joey is on a crusade to save Lindsay. Is he going to be the next ex-client that stalks the poor woman? Either way, it means more Joey Heric, and with the absence of Hunky D.A., he's all we've got. So you go, Joey Heric -- we'll take what we can get.
Suffering County Courthouse. Rod is on the stand. He explains that Lindsay started to come apart during O'Malley's trial. Ellenor asks him to explain. Rod states, "She started having emotional tantrums. To the point where she said she wanted to lose the trial." Blah stared at her in court, blah take her to heaven, blah called her "Clarice" blah. Bobby insists, "We were all worried about her." Okay, so not only does DEK recycle ideas from show to show, but he manages to draw one idea out into three different episodes. "A-ha!" he thinks. "For one Lannibal Hector impersonation, I'll get one Emmy and a two-hour finale." I've got to get myself such a job. Every day would be a holiday. Right. So Ellenor asks, "At some point you took out a restraining order against this man." Yes. Bobby says, "But it didn't matter. He just kept coming." Ellenor wants Bobby to explain what happened the night of O'Malley's murder. He gives the concise version: he heard Lindsay scream for him, he came running out of the bedroom, he asked O'Malley to leave, he threatened to throw him out, and then he "just turned." The camera pauses on Lindsay clenching her hands like she's wringing lemons into lemonade. Bobby explains how O'Malley suffered from psychotic breaks. Ragdoll wonders, with all the psychotic breaks and psychological amnesia, how anything ever happens on this damn show. Bobby continues with his story. Blah O'Malley said "the other man" was coming, blah told Lindsay she was in danger, blah threatened her, blah twice blah. The Emperor takes a princely pause and says, "Then she just shot the gun. She had this vacant, dazed expression as she fired. She put the gun down and then she went to her room." What did he do? He called the police, and then he went in to check on Lindsay. Bobby insists, "She didn't even know what happened. It seemed like she was just gone." He's smart on the stand. He knows not to tell Walsh exactly what Lindsay said.
