It’s just a coincidence that I recently got back into this program. Talk about good timing! Wow. This show represents nothing less than the very best in American television drama.
I didn’t think much of James Spader before, but I am now a rabid fan! What an incredible interpretation of the role. I don’t know whether it was written with him in mind, but damn! He has positively nailed it.
And Chris O’Donnel. Who’d 'ave thunk it? He’s a bad boy now, one who almost succeeded in looking mean when he glared at Elenore. And not just any bad boy, but one who murdered his wife and unborn son and then used his ten-year-old daughter to shield himself from prosecution as she even now languishes in custody thanks to his scheme.
And Eugene. He has actually grown. I never thought he would. I thought he would always be a sanctimonious and arrogant prick. No longer. Apparently, the heavy weight of the firm resting solely on his shoulders has toned down his peckishness. (Some remains, though. He just HAD to explain that he “did it for the firm”. :rolleyes: )
All in all, this was my favorite episode to date. (I still love the one with Lindsay’s first opening statement when she went up against her professor, but now it’s number two.)
I wonder what was in the bedroom. I heard moaning, but maybe it was from physical suffering rather than sexual pleasure. My guess is that Roland’s wife was beaten, stripped nude, and tied to the bed while Richard lies on top of her with his brains blown out or something.
