Honestly, I didn't know which element of the Adam and Rachael scenes to care about more. Obviously, I love me a good serial plot, and things between Adam and Rachael have been brewing for some time. I could have jumped up and down cheering when she shows up at his office at the end of the episode and kisses him. I assume she then left to break up with her fiance.
On the other hand, Aaron makes a fantastic guest star, and his story is extremely moving, especially after he loses his appeal. I hope he returns in season two so that Adam and Rachael have anther chance to save him from execution. I believe he's innocent! Both Kim and Adam and Rachael made such strong arguments, I can accept that the duo lost. Yet, Aaron is such a great get for the show, it would be a shame not to see him again.
I'm still not totally on board with Jenna (Brittany Snow) and Malcolm (Aml Ameen) as a couple. She has such a strong personality that he is likely to be completely overshadowed by her. Plus, Malcolm is on the verge of getting his life together, and has a lot of work ahead of him. I don't know he can possibly do well in law school and put up with the very high maintenance Jenna. I like both of them separately, but think they would work better with other people. Should they continue, at least stop the pattern of her getting angry at him in every episode and giving him the silent treatment until he has to apologize for something he didn't even know he did. Three consecutive episodes of it is fine, as have already been done, but any more, and it'll get old really quick.
Thank you Kelley, Bates, and the rest for a nice show that proved pretty darn entertaining. I look forward to more of it.
