Episode 21 introduces Rebecca Balding as Carol David
21 April 2010 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

Episode 21 begins with Danny introducing Elaine to his crazy family,which fails to deter her from wanting to marry him.An unbilled Tim Rossovich plays Elaine's bodyguard,whose job is to frisk everybody,which really pleases Jodie("Danny,for me? You shouldn't have!") At a remote mountaintop retreat,Corinne finds Father Tim,who admits he's been unable to forget her,with Ian Wolfe making his second appearance on the show,his Father Juniper believing that Corinne is a vision,a simple mirage("maybe I've been on the mountain too long!") Rebecca Balding makes her debut as Carol David,assistant to E.Ronald Mallu,Jessica's attorney,who is so surprised upon meeting Jodie,a suicidal homosexual,that she insists upon making it up to him over lunch.Jessica's entourage sweeps into the courtroom,and the trial begins with Mr.Franklin saying such awful things about her that she threatens to leave and not come back.
