Brooks has fallen behind in his studies, and wants to rejoin the study group. Hart is willing, but the others are reluctant, until Brooks produces some study aids from his 'tutor'. The entire study group (even the questionable Brooks) gets an A in Kingsfield's mid-term exam. This starts the suspicious looks and hushed tones from the other students. Hart gets to the bottom of this, and it ends with Brooks' amicable exit interview in Kingsfield's office. Written by
This is one of the most interesting episodes of the entire series. That Brooks always came off as superfluous is obvious to anyone who's seen the shows. With the exception of the first episode, he rarely did anything that justified his recurring-character status. Again I find myself agreeing with planktonrules. Instead of simply writing him out, they gave him a powerful story about the pressures facing law students (and medical students) who can't bury themselves in their schoolwork without distraction. Throughout the series they show you Hart coping with the pressures of balancing his financial problems and his academic pursuits. Not everyone can succeed under those conditions. An excellent episode with a logical and appropriate resolution.
