Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Daniel Purcell (credit only)


Ellen's hopes of a resolution to her fiancé David's murder are dashed when the policeman Katie Connor recognized is found dead. She's also shocked to learn that Arthur Frobisher is their new client in the shareholder lawsuit against UNR. Working late one night, she sees Uncle Pete coming out of her office. The FBI is also interested in his activities. Pete is Patty's real uncle and has a lengthy criminal record for petty offenses, though nothing since he started working for Patty 20 years ago. The FBI nab him in a sting operation and give him a choice: provide information they can use against Patty or go to jail leaving his dying wife to cope alone. Pete is genuinely torn at the prospect of betraying Patty and pretends to go along with FBI - but in fact has his own way of extricating himself from the situation he finds himself in.

Another amazing well written episode

No wonder that my favorite episode from season 1, "Sort of Like a Family", was co-written with Jeremy Doner, the writer of this episode. Now I'm sure that Mark Fish (whom, in this season had written the best episode yet, "I Agree, ItWasn't Funny" - episode 2.05) and Jeremy Doner are the best in that writing room. At least, my favorites, in terms of depth of character and tingling twists and turns, along with amazing pieces of dialog that you can spend a lot of time thinking about it. The Uncle Pete element was so well balanced with Ellen's new lead and Byrne gives us amazing moments of despair using only her eyes, Tim Olhyphant approach is also so well put!
