Goofs

A former juror being allowed to testify during a current preceding would be so grossly prejudicial that the defense would be within in its rights to demand a mistrial. Since the jury was formerly part of the body tasked to decide a verdict, seeing one of their former group on the stand testifying against the defendant in the same trial would more than enough to have the verdict overturned upon appeal.

She liked to say the show was our baby.

An old man got into a private park with his grandson; the little boy found a woman dead behind bushes. The night before, a benefit auction took place in that park, hosted by a foundation in order to raise money for tsunami's casualties. The foundation actually used less than a half of the money received for solidarity purposes, much of them went missing: that's why the victim had an argument with the two twin guys who ran the business. Anyway forensics found the DNA under the victim's fingernails wasn't theirs. The victim's husband, a chef in a steak house, was working that night, taking a break just to buy some dope. Detectives realized she had an affair with a celebrity TV chef twenty years younger than her and his DNA matched, but defense attorney wanted to prove it was related to rough sex. Then the trial started and it wasn't an easy one for McCoy who had to deal with a dirty juror.....

Great episode, the villain is willing to do anything to succeed, but the victim is not better than him regarding ethics. We can see again the taste detective Fontana had for luxury clothes and shoes.
