TV: Close to Home

[Episode: Romeo & Juliet Murders, 2005]

Jasper (Jackson Rathbone, Twilight) likes it all in the family

Annabeth and Maureen prosecute a case involving siblings whose parents are found murdered after they discover a secret which the teenagers had been keeping from them.

I always loved this episode right from when I first saw it on tv. This one definitely pushed the envelope. It was both shocking and engaging. Although I had a feeling the girl was lying during her testimony (it seemed way too obvious to have the abused child), I couldn’t figure out why. And then it totally twisted around. Not only did she kill her parents, but it’s because she and her “brother” were in love! My one reservation about the episode was that row of pictures of the two of them. As soon as I saw them, I knew they were a couple. The show made it a little too obvious what was coming up. It would be one thing if these pictures were in some photo album somewhere but they HAPPENED to be the ones on the board at the firm…a little too predictable.
