This was a so-so ep for me and we seem to be in agreement as to why. I thought Jamie/Matt had some great moments. I loved how assertive he was with his threatening to be the bad cop when he clearly already was in bad cop mode and Ronnie saying, 'You don't want to see him when he's a bad cop.' Hee!

But the case? Eh. I think the reveal that she had set the wheels in motion muddled the case and led to an incorrect verdict. Was she guilty of numerous crimes? Yes. But was she a cold blooded killer? No. The case would have worked better had it been revealed she was either the brains behind the operation, driving her boyfriend to kill, or if she was truly an innocent victim traumatized by abuse.

And I'm still a bit iffy as to what motivates Jake. I understand it was a high profile case, but in addition to salvaging his new career he seemed to be passionate about sending her away for life as a murderer and I'm not sure why.
