I hate that wide-eyed, whiny faux innocent routine of hers, like she's just totally perplexed and wounded that Lilly doesn't want to deal with her self-induced messes anymore. And I hate her relationship with Scotty, which every person in the world told each of them should absolutely not happen, but they're both idiots, so it did (Scotty, dude, here's a hint: if Nick Fucking Vera knows something is a bad idea, it's a BAD IDEA). Each time the actor's name came up in the guest starring credits, I cringed. I'm relieved there was no eighth season because they were running out of money to do the music properly, and the cases were getting less interesting, but also because I think they intended to let Scotty get away with murder, which would have been the final straw for me, and because Lilly would have been taking care of Christina and her baby, and Scotty would get his Captain Save-a-Ho complex on and help. <shudder> I thought the character was well done. Not that I liked her as a person, but she was believable and recognizable to me. Especially with their mother being a similar type, it made so much sense that Lily went to one extreme and her younger sister went down a path closer to their mother's. Lily's mom also did the "I don't understand why you have such a problem with me" routine to Lily on a regular basis. And Scotty's terrible taste in women made him a prime target for her type, so that rang true to me too. Quote Yeah, I love that they never went there at all. No hinting that Lilly not wanting Christina to date him was because she wanted him for herself (an impressive show of restraint given the background about Christina and the ex-fiancé), no putting them undercover as a couple, no near kiss while drunkenly commiserating their pathetic love lives, nothing. Exactly. I loved their friendship as it was and it's honestly shocking that the show didn't try it, but it's refreshing. I just rewatched Justice. It's hard to watch "Kevin Pearson" as the serial rapist, but I'm also curious how the case went unsolved for 25 years. I mean, we learn very early on in the episode that he wasn't a good guy, but it doesn't seem like that fact was known at the time of the murder. And class valedictorian, big man on campus getting shot to death on campus seems like it would warrant a pretty big response from law enforcement. 1 1 Link to comment
