Quotes

Judge Clinton Sternwood: The law provides us structure to guide us through paralyzing and trying times. But it requires us a vision to its procedures and higher purposes. Before we assume our respective roles in this enduring drama just let me say that when these frail shadows we inhabit now have quit the stage we'll meet and raise a glass again together in Valhalla.

Laura's Diary and Beyond
8 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are a couple of major things going on here. There is a plot to kill Cooper based on the kidnapping of Audrey and the subsequent ransom. Cooper is being set up but he is quite formidable. Maddy and Donna are back in the game when the agoraphobic orchid grower admits to having one of Laura's diaries. Also, Dick tries to get Lucy to get an abortion and she goes ballistic. There is quite a lot of angst involving Andy and his wishes (he has been told his sperm count is too low to cause conception). At the One Eyed Jack, evil is gaining a foothold. The brother of Jacques is cold blooded and crazy. No one is safe there. We also have the return of the Chinese delegation. Leland has been brought to face charges in court as a unique frontier type judge arrives in his Winnebago.
