The Rindell storyline takes a surprisingly compelling turn – for the first time I was genuinely interested in what happened to Henry – which is all to the good, but the big news (and the big fight) in this week’s episode is Reddick v Boseman, as Louis Gosset Jr. pops in to try and take back the firm he started – the vote is surprisingly close, considering how completely awesome Adrian is – and brings a particularly tricky case of the week with him for good measure. Fisher Stevens is a somewhat unscrupulous opponent, and the client’s initially on the ropes, but Marissa’s on hand to work it all out, which is becoming something of a habit and would be harking back to Super-Kalinda Solves It All territory, were it not for the fact that it’s impossible to dislike Marissa (she is ace) and Lucca currently has dibs on any character traits Kalinda might have left lying around.
Colin’s parents and their friends’ behaviour was hilarious in a completely mortifying way, but I’ve had more than enough of Lucca’s incomprehensible and frankly stupid skittishness. Girlfriend, if you want Colin (and why wouldn’t you? He’s great), you can very clearly have Colin, so what the hell is your problem? And if you don’t… well, never mind that, you obviously do. So get over yourself.
