Great Episode and im in love with the story
The latest episode of Defending Jacob brings more revelations to the plot as Matt comes forward with the truth regarding Leonard. While the drama remains quite slow, it has added another mystery with a strange stalker following the family. Episode 6 of Defending Jacob starts 10 days before the trial as Andy and Joanna arrive in the court house. Once there, they come face to face with Neal who manages to rile Andy up by mentioning his father. Andy pushes him against the wall but is quickly stopped. Joanna and Andy then spend five hours looking through it but unfortunately find nothing concrete. As they are both about to leave, Duffy speaks to Andy about his father and tells him not hesitate if he needs helps. As they leave, Joanna tells Andy that she has found out from her niece that Jacob has been online. This prompts him to confront his son back home about it. Jacob defends himself, saying it was just a joke but Andy is having none of it, angrily telling him that this new profile he made could damage his defence in court. In prison, Andy's father and the prisoners see on the news that Jacob is accused of murder and is the grandson of a convicted murderer. Later that night, Andy notices a strange blue car parked outside then gets a call from Matt who wants to meet as he has something to say about Leonard Patz. In the court house, Matt relays what has been happening with Leonard and how he used to pay Matt to let him touch his trousers. Eventually he stopped paying which is when Matt reported him. Leonard had his eyes on another boy called Ben and Matt also reveals that he was carrying a knife around. Neal wants to know why he waited to come forward, to which he replies that he heard about Jacob and didn't want him to go down for what he believed Leonard did. Andy relays to his wife and Jacob what happened as this could change things for them. He later gets a call from his father who tells him he saw the news and wanted to talk to him. Andy refuses though as he doesn't even consider him as his father. The next morning while out running, Laurie notices that same blue car Andy mentioned is following her. She starts panicking and runs home to Andy and Duffy deep in conversation. They reveal that the police didn't find a knife in Patz's house but they'r not ruling him out yet. Laurie is still anxious though and tells her husband that the blue Lincoln was following her. Before leaving, Duffy tells Andy she is not sure Matt is telling the truth. Andy insists though, asking her not to give up. After having dinner in a restaurant, the family drive back home. Laurie notices the same blue car so Andy decides to confront the driver. As he reaches the car, Andy tells him to stay away from them and the street. The strange man tells him it's good to have a family and as the episode ends, we cut forward to the day of the trial as Jacob and his parents get ready to drive toward the court house. One of the most interesting plot points of this episode is Doctor Vogel's test results as she talks about the different genes. In a show which lacks originality, this brings some needed substance and stop it from becoming too stale.
