Judging Amy: Getting Out

Are they trying to start up the Amy/Bruce thing again? Looks that way at the start. They're really focusing on their relationship. Meanwhile, Maxine is trying to help a mom with lots of foster kids, and one of Vincent's students at the prison is getting out in a few days, but has a plan to kill Vincent so he can be with his dad at another prison. Note to Vincent: if this episode doesn't convince you to get the hell out of that prison and get a job some place else and work on your book, well, I give up. And speaking of prison, Graciela might be getting out too because a witness changed her testimony. Trust me: this doesn't end well (Amy: "no...this isn't how this ends"). But back to Amy and Bruce: he lays into her about losing credibility and objectivity. Not only in a legal, courtroom sense, but with him. Amy tells him that he doesn't do anything with his life except tell her what the next case is. And then he quits! But she takes it back and tells him that she's his "conscience and friend," which sounds like the description of the Bruce character that must exist in the writers room at Judging Amy. But Bruce doesn't change his mind. He says goodbye to Amy and walks out the door. So in this episode we have Vincent attacked, Graciela killed in prison, and Bruce quitting. But just when you think it's over, there's one last shocker: Amy quits too!
