Storyline

Helen goes to see Lilly again to restart studying the catechism, but is uncomfortable with Lilly dating Kevin. God tells Joan to get involved with the mock trial where she ends up the prosecuting lawyer against Grace, who is the defending lawyer for Adam, playing Jack (as in 'and the Beanstalk'). However, when she begins to suspect something has happened affecting their relationship, she drills him with pointed questions during the trial. Meanwhile, Will is investigating the kidnapping and murder of a young girl, but is suspicious when a man confesses. Written by Horomnizon

Goofs

After completing her questioning of Adam Rove as the prosecutor in the mock trial, Joan tells the judge, "I'm done. The prosecution rests." However, since Adam was playing the part of the defendant he would have to have been called to the stand by the defense which means that the prosecution would have rested before that. See more »

Quotes

Luke Girardi: Sorry, Joan. I'm already serving as legal advisor to the defense.
Joan: You're helping Grace? What happened to "blood is thicker than water"?
Luke Girardi: Got trumped by make-out sessions in the biology closet.
