Victor French was AWESOME!
26 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well darn it, but I'm so happy for Isiah! He's been through a lot this past year, losing his family and fighting alcoholism. But he's overcome so much and he deserves to be happy with a boy of his own! I'm so happy with the way things turned out for him.

I'm also very happy for Nels. I always love it when he stands up to Harriet and tells her exactly what he thinks of her. Harriet has done some cruel things in her time, but this rates right up there with about number one!

This episode is actually one of the best of Season 9. Victor French's speech blows me away every time I watch this. How many times do we hear about modern day cases that end unbelievably and we wish we could stand up and make a speech like this?
