Well, Brenda Leigh's troubles begin, right in the first episode. I remember that case she's being investigated for, the one where she released a confessed murderer knowing the other members of his gang would kill him. But Brenda was backed into a corner by the interference of others...Pope promised the murderer immunity in exchange for information and the FBI or some other agency was poking its nose in as well. It wasn't all her doing. She could have offered police protection, but that goes against the grain as well. However, as the Mary McDonnell character pointed out, Brenda just did the same thing again last night when she put that young girl in danger by using her as bait. What if the cops had gotten there five minutes later? The girl would have been dead. Yep, Brenda's in trouble, all right.
