Fairly Legal “Shattered” Review – Ben or Justin? How Will Kate Choose?

Fairly Legal "Shattered" Season 2 Episode 10

In this episode of Fairly Legal, called “Shattered,” Kate is mediating a case that ends up being a lot more complicated than it first appears. In other words, it’s pretty much business as usual for her once again. A nurse is being blamed for a man’s broken hip and the one witness they have to prove that the nurse is innocent also just happens to be a woman who is a wanted fugitive for a bombing twenty years ago.

Oh and Ben’s ex-girlfriend is the one trying to sue the nurse. See? Like I said – completely normal.

Speaking of Ben and Kate, I am so confused I don’t know exactly what to think about this whole situation. Do I want Kate and Ben to get together? Or do I want Kate and Justin to get back together? If you’d ask me this question a couple of episodes ago, the answer would have been simple – Kate and Justin all the way.

But the more we’ve learned about Ben, the more he’s grown on me. And last week when Kate was all excited for their date, I started seeing how they could maybe be good together. But then she slept with Justin and now we have ourselves a classic lover’s triangle. I guess I should be happy. The fact that I like both of them means that whichever guy she ends up with, I’ll be happy, right? Though the fact that I like both of them also means that whichever guy she ends up hurting, I’m going to feel heartbroken for them. Dangit, I just can’t win.

My favorite bits..

Leo claiming that he saw an owl at his door, rather than Ben. Sounds feasible to me.

Ben slamming the door in Kate’s face. Is it wrong that I kind of enjoyed that, purely on his behalf?

Leo hooting like an owl.

Kate trying to claim she did nothing wrong? Really?

OMG it’s Fate! Didn’t Castiel kill her..oops, wrong show.

“You just look and sound so sweet, but you’re not are you? Like bees in the shape of a donut.”

“Dipsy doodling”? I have no idea what that means, but I kind of like it.

“She is a hand grenade in a Holly Hobby dress.” – The funniest part of this is that I actually used to own a Holly Hobby doll so I totally got that reference.

“You obviously didn’t have much respect for me. I think that’s why we broke up.” “Really? I thought it was ’cause you’re a basket full of crazy.”

Finding it kind of funny how disturbed Ben is by Beth. I didn’t think any woman could rattle him like that.

Kate trying to drive with two feet at the same time.

Wait. Did Leo just say “Shazbot”?? Just when I think I couldn’t possibly love that man more…..

Leo coming in and standing up for Ben. That was kind of awesome.

“I don’t want to meet in the middle, because that middle sucks.”

“You’re different.”
“He said that?”
“He didn’t have to.” – Kate’s little smile after Leo said that was very sweet. Hope she realizes what she did to him now.

This is so not fair. I’m liking Justin AND Ben. Every time Kate talks to one or the other, I’m on their side. Argh.

Beth remarking that Ben had changed. Hm, interesting.

Whoa! ShirtlessBen! Now THAT was a nice surprise. *fans self* (and yes, I did have to watch that scene a few times, but mostly because I was too distracted the first couple times to actually hear what they were saying to each other).

Kate and Ben detailing all the things they weren’t allowed to say to Christie and her husband.

Kate finally letting the cat out of the bag and admitting out loud that she stood up Ben to sleep with Justin.

Ben pointing out that he deserved Beth’s hatred, but not an innocent woman who did nothing wrong. Aw.

“Wow, looks like a woman finally got under Ben Groman’s skin. I’m just sorry it wasn’t me.”

Justin leaving the note for Ben and Kate. Clever man!

Kate sitting down to watch her “favorite show.” Haha!

Lauren quoting Cruela De Vil.

Ben watching Kate and Justin walking off holding hands. Ouch.
