So the celebrity parade continues to roll on by without a certain someone.
Twirling the baton up front this week was Kyra Sedgwick, known for far less annoying roles like Singles and Kevin Baconís wife. Here she played a woman with split personalities, one being Helen the domesticated shy one, the other, Helena, a career-woman who can easily relate to Liza.
Okay itís somewhat disappointing that the final minutes are dwindling away and characters weíve invested in are not going anywhere story wise, but here goes: Helena hired Liza to sue her husband for divorce. Helen hired Ally to stop the divorce. Liza enlisted Richard, Ally enlisted John, and somehow the firm was permitted to battle itself against itís own client. No, I didnít understand that last sentence either other than itís exactly what happened.
Prompted by the look at dueling personalities Richard told Liza that part of the reason heís fallen for her is her soft side. Liza was all put off by Richard knowing her vulnerabilities but eventually she got over it.
Meanwhile John used Allyís quiet side with Maddie as an example of why the harsh Helena should not win out. Ally was flattered, and Helen won the case, or at least everyone thought she did. Helen was given medicine to demolish her inner Helena; instead it was she who vanished.
Weíre edging that much closer. What would you like to see happen? Ally realizes that John is her kindred spirit? Billyís death was all some Dallas dream and they reunite? Or, if youíre a thinking person, Larry returns?
