THE DEFENDERS “Noland v. Galloway Pharmaceuticals” Review

THE DEFENDERS Noland v. Galloway Pharmaceuticals Episode 16

THE DEFENDERS “Noland v. Galloway Pharmaceuticals” Season 1 Episode 16 – Lisa is on the case of a lifetime but when Nick and Pete find an even bigger case on the tail of it, they decide to take over. She’s not happy about it but I like that she didn’t back down from Nick. She fought back for herself and for her client and even though they went through with the other case anyway, it was obvious that Nick respected her for what she did. It also helped her to make up her mind not to take that other job offer she got from her boyfriend with the DA.

The other part of this episode that floored me was the stunt that Nick and Pete pulled in court. I knew something was up when Nick asked Pete how allergic he was to shellfish but even when he ate the shrimp, I thought it was a trick. No way did I think Pete would agree to being poisoned in court just to prove a point. Yeah sure Nick had the epi pen on him but still, that was awesome.

My favorite bits..

Zoey accusing Lisa of having “sex hair.” LOL.

Thinking that girl was pretty brave to watch the tape of her basically dying. I know I wouldn’t have been able to do it.

Cracking up that neither of the girls knew who Nick was talking about when he started babbling about the guy on the donkey with the coffee. Yeah they’re probably a little young to remember those commercials.

Squeeing like a little girl when I saw that William Russ was playing one of the EMTs. I know everybody knows him as the dad on Boy Meets World but I’ll always remember him as Roger from Wiseguy.

Nick and Pete going in to meet Luke.

Nick figuring out how their two victims could have been overdosed by two separate EMT companies..with cartons of milk. Nice!

Nick saying he was ready to bite the tail of the dragon.

Pete comparing their meeting with the EMT being like leading the dumbest horse to water and screaming Dat it to “Drink! Drink! Drink!”

Feeling so bad for Lisa when she had to Sonya that they were holding off on her case.

Nick saying his green tea was like plankton in water. Ha!

Lisa having the balls to say “screw you!” to Nick. Whoa!

The Marine agreeing that he would testify in court about how the mistake he made.

The mother telling Nick that she was going to have to tell her son that his life wasn’t going to get better, all because Nick crossed a line, “sorta.” Ouch.

Nick telling Luke that he was a fighter and a scrapper, just like him.

Nick throwing his salad at the window. Yeah I probably would’ve thrown that rabbit food at the window, too.

Getting very suspicious when Nick asked Pete how allergic to shellfish he was and then just about passing out when the Pete actually ate the fish in court and he nearly stopped breathing. Wow, talk about being committed to your case.

Finding out that Nick had held up two vials of the wrong dose to the doc in court. Brilliant.

Lisa admitting to Nick that “screw you” was pretty tame compared to what was in her head. LOL.
