Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi, The L Word) never faced a fight she didn’t want…to win. A former lawyer, she’s now a mediator who loves to resolve others’ conflicts. But it’s often her own conflicts that could use some attention. In season two, Kate returns to the firm and discovers that Reed & Reed is on the verge of financial collapse. To save the firm, up-and-coming trial attorney Ben Grogan (Ryan Johnson, CSI: NY) is brought on as a partner. However, Kate finds herself both clashing with Ben’s aggressive, ambulance-chasing ways and yet, romantically drawn to him. Further complicating matters are Kate’s relationships with managing partner/stepmother Lauren Reed (Virginia Williams, How I Met Your Mother) and soon-to-be-ex-husband A.D.A. Justin Patrick (Michael Trucco, Revenge). Watch all 13 original, witty, and absolutely unpredictable episodes of the series critics call “funny and sexy” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times).

Now, on to the good stuff. USA's motto is "characters welcome" and the characters just pop out of the screen at you in this episode. It's extremely well-acted. You'll laugh, you'll cry. It also can stand alone, outside the main story arc. I would call it my favorite episode of the season, except they're ALL my favorites.
From here on is an extended description of the episode - if you'd rather be surprised, well, what're you waiting for? Stop reading right now and just buy the video!
Ben is very much at odds with self-righteous Lauren at the beginning of the episode, but earns her respect by the end. He defies her, using the exact same quasi-ethical techniques he always does, but along the way, she realizes he does it all for a good reason; he gives his clients what they need, which usually is more important than what they want. We find out he's very good at playing "lawyer chess" and that he has a past with opposing counsel. Meanwhile, Kate has to work hard to keep one of the most gripping mediations we see all season from going horribly awry. She saves the day, at great personal risk. One of the nicer, more open moments between Kate & Justin happens in this episode, too, in the final scene.
