A no-holds-barred trial prep session pits Alicia against Peter to satisfying dramatic effect, but the rest of the episode is a bit of a mish-mash.

Louis Canning finally gets what’s been coming to him and Vanessa Williams joins the cast, but we still don’t know what’s going on between Alicia and Jason.
