Shark: Love Triangle
Stark likes him, seeing in Isaac someone like himself maybe. Impulsive, but smart and committed. Since Stark's first job offer, Isaac's been working security for a wealthy rapper who happens to be a total jerk, so after Isaac inquires about the county's dental plan, he's on board with Stark.
Raina's a bit doubtful of Isaac and his investigative methods, at least initially, setting up some love/hate sexual tension ala Stark and Jess. Or at least I thought initially there was supposed to be some sexual tension between the characters played by James Woods and Jeri Ryan. If it is there, it doesn't seem to be going anywhere in a hurry.
The personal angle this week is that Stark's daughter happened to be at the party in which a girl is killed, and a friend of those involved.
Acting like the rich parents in any one of the Law & Order series, the rich parents of one of the kids start closing ranks once it's clear their daughter is a suspect. The kid tries to kill herself, but Stark's not having any of that noise, and he has her arrested in her hospital bed. Stark's supposed to be tough, and it's good to see him act tough, and not only in court, based on the info he has at the time. Of course, the killer is not who we're lead to believe it is, but that's television.
Stark's daughter Julie, meanwhile, talks to the school paper and the story gets picked up by the AP. Stark just about pops a neck vein when he hears about that. But he's happy again after demolishing an expert defense witness on the stand.
For once, instead of having all the answers himself, Stark has to play catch-up. Isaac and Troy find out some stuff through their investigations, and even the two blond lawyers, Casey and Madeline, make themselves useful. The cast is getting large, and I think, if they decide they need to trim, they could cut Casey the easiest. True, he has hooked up with Madeline before, but evidently she's willing to hook up with just about anyone anytime at the office, so she won't be lonely.
