Good premiere episode for a show just hitting its "mid-stride"
5 March 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The first episode of eleventh season features a knockout performance from Megan Follows as the distraught mother of an apparent house fire victim. Further investigation results in the mother being tried for having set the fire the resulted in the young man's death.

Much of the drama comes from fact that the young victim suffered from multiple health and mental issues, which may have led to the mother's decision to put an end to his (and her) misery.

McCoy tries hard to follow the letter of the law but is somewhat affected by the mother's story. Carmichael (Angie Harmon) and new DA Loren (Diane Wiest) don't let the tale weigh so heavily on them and seek to convict the woman as befitting the crime.

In addition to the fine work of Follows, Nick Chinlund is deliciously smarmy as the very arrogant and tactful defense attorney. His lines and delivery are worth eight stars by themselves.
