The Advocate (#9.17)
12 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Once again we have an actor in this episode whose career was about to start. This time it is Josh Radnor who is great in the role of the Alderman's lover. I kind of knew right away that it will be a guy, especially after he said something against gay marriage before. Trying to trick us with politics. The whole story is just so well done and so dramatic. Love Weaver in it, I wonder how she will deal with it from now on.

Don't feel bad for that nasty girl that claims to be raped. I believe her mother and she is just a nutcase. Of course Luka is taking her side. She is the kind of a kid that cries victim and then kills her mother because she didn't let her to a party. So the mother should stay away.

See Luka prefers talking to his prostitute than to the shrink. I wasn't really paying much attention to what he was saying, but liked how they tricked us a little.
