Plot Overview

Richard and Raymond are hired to represent Serena, a 16 year-old girl who is in desperate need of a heart transplant. The only match is her father but due to ethical problems, and the fact that the father killed the mother and is therefore in jail, needs to be confronted. The case is going downhill so Serena's father escapes and kills himself for her to get his heart. Meanwhile Maddie is caught smoking and reveals to Victor that she wanted to be suspended to avoid a father-daughter day at school. She questions Ally why she and Victor can't be together, and Victor overhears Ally telling Maddie that they come from different worlds as an explanation. Angry at Ally for being an elitist, Victor quits, but Ally makes it up by asking him on a date. In the last minute Ally freaks out, and Victor is called for help. Ally is still in love with Larry and thus can't date Victor.
