Each week as a new case comes her way, she's discovering the truth about people and sometimes it's ugly. Her ex-husband to be, whom she still loves but they can't seem to get along and make things work, is the assistant D.A. She's constantly asking him for help and he's usually reluctant since it , most times, gest him in trouble. But he still loves her.
I love the tension between Kate and Justin. You know they're disfunctional but you root for them because they love each other and it's comedic at times.

Enter season two.
Kate and Justin seem like they might forget the divorce and give it another try, as Kate has had some soul-searching and events happen in her life provide an epiphany!
But Justin reveals devastating news and Kate can't move forward.
Enter Ben Grogan, actor Ryan Johnson.
Another amp up in tension. Ben Grogan is an arrogant, all about money, shady lawyer who through interesting and funny events ends up as another partner at Kate's firm. The sparks between them are electrifying! He's sarcastic and obnoxious and she's beside herself that he works there.
However, inside Ben Grogan lies a boy from the wrong side of the tracks trying to prove he's worth something and he hides that behind a huge wall of arrogance and a mask of I-could-care-less.
I love watching that wall break down little by little through the sweet things he does on occasion. However, they generally back fire and the wall pops back up, but that makes for great tension. Excellent conflict and I find myself not rooting so much for Justin--exhubby anymore. One because of what he reavealed to Kate. And two, I love a wounded hero!
I also enjoy watching Justin's jealousy as he sees what Kate doesn't. Her growing attraction for hunky Ben!
I've learned a lot about great writing from this show!
Do you watch Fairly Legal? I recommend it! Netflix it and start from the beginning. What show do you love and why?Happy Weekend, friends!
