Episode 25 closes the first season
23 April 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 25 begins with the Campbells meeting Elaine's father,who schedules his daughter's wedding to Danny,warning him not to run away if he wants his family to live(Tim Rossovich again appears unbilled as the bodyguard).Father Tim informs Corinne that he's leaving the priesthood because he didn't have the calling,and insists that the two have to be married before they make love.Carol convinces Jodie that they should live together,as friends,just before Dennis Phillips walks back into Jodie's life,his wife having left him(and he wants Jodie back).Still waiting on the jury's verdict,Jessica's lighthearted facade finally breaks down; Chester promises that nothing will ever happen to her.E.Ronald Mallu confesses he's fallen in love with Jessica,who conceals their embrace from Chester by pretending it's a dance lesson.Chief of Police Tinkler requests they return to the courtroom: "Miss Knight,if you and the Pips are ready!"(Howard Hesseman makes his last appearance on the show).The verdict is in,and Jessica is pronounced guilty,as the first season comes to an end.
