It is a little unclear why Stanton wants Franklin and Bash. Is it for their enthusiasm and antics? That's what they demonstrate in court in front of him. But later in the episode, he sides with Franklin against Karp because he likes how Franklin stands up for what he believes in. These seem to be two conflicting ideas. Are viewers expected to believe Stanton sensed the righteousness behind the stunts right away? Or that he likes how they operate, and the morals are just bonus?
Equally confusing is just what kind of man Karp is. He sticks to the rules so much that Hanna dumps him for not sleeping with her because it is against company policy. Yet, he is more than willing to sell out the little man to keep a big client for the firm. So he follows the guidelines of the place he works for, but not the law? Is he only choosing self preservation and his career over Hannah? Again, two completely different sides, at odds with each other. Is he a stick in the mud or a sleaze ball?
Then there's the side bit where Hanna almost sleeps with Franklin, her ex Karp's polar opposite. Just what kinds of guys does Hanna go for? Is she just going to have sex with Franklin because she knows it will tick off Karp royally and get under his skin? If so, that does not bode well for her character. Which is a shame, because Franklin is a nice guy and he seems interested in her. Of course, Franklin's sole criteria for finding a woman attractive is hotness, so he, at least, makes sense.
What is Pindar's illness? He says he is germophobic, but is fine with a huge party and lots of strangers at his home. Yeah, he takes three showers, but he doesn't hide from everyone. He pukes in Carmen's car, when it's just the two of them, but holds it together on a crowded city bus with a man sneezing right next to him. Franklin and Bash treat him like he's perfectly fine, laying a heavy guilt trip on him if he fails to show up in court, and they know him well, which points to him not being too severely sick. He overcomes his phobias to save the day, so assumedly, he has gotten over whatever ails him, and can now report to work normally. Why even put those things in in the first place when he can beat them so easily? Viewers cannot be expected to feel for Pindar is he suddenly is paralyzed by the same fears again next week.
