Quotes

Dr. Elizabeth Olivet: That hurt, Jack.
D.A. Jack McCoy: I warned you.
Dr. Elizabeth Olivet: You betrayed a confidence.
D.A. Jack McCoy: You went to bat for a woman who shot her husband in cold blood and who would have killed anybody else she found in his office. If I had to betray a confidence to ensure she goes to jail... so be it. These are the rules we live by.
Dr. Elizabeth Olivet: This isn't your finest hour, Jack.
D.A. Jack McCoy: Nor yours.

Without knowing context
10 August 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Psychologist John Shea is our murder victim. But with an opening soliloquy he becomes as much a character in this as the rest of the cast. Of course tapes of his sessions are played throughout the course of the story.

Detectives Jesse Martin and Jeremy Sisto arrest the victim's wife Moira Kelly for the crime. She's heard some of the tapes and they show that her husband liked to take advantage of his patients. She ought to know because she started out as one of his patients.

With some court advisers Kelly does a great job defending herself and Linus Roache is really up against it. She even elicits the support of long time police and DA consulting psychiatrist Carolyn McCormick appearing for the defense this time. An expert witness that the DA calls is a charlatan in Dr. Olivet's professional opinion.

I won't reveal the end, but without knowing context you can draw a lot of wrong conclusions.
