On the last episode of the legal dramedy Boston Legal
, we witnessed how Denny (William Shatner
) fainted in the lobby of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt, while Alan (James Spader
) helped someone take on the drug companies that contributed to how critical his condition had become. Meanwhile, Carl (John Larroquette
) helped Shirley's (Candice Bergen
) granddaughter who found herself in a legal debacle after voting in the presidential primaries. For her part, Katie (Tara Summers
) took a case of a young woman who claimed he was raped by the guard of a private drug treatment facility.
Tonight, Denny faces arrest once again after he is found carrying a concealed firearm when he shoots a man who tries to mug him and Jerry. It looks like it was a case of self-defense. Meanwhile, Alan fights for the right of a sex surrogate to get joint custody of her daughter. A little side note and something that might complicate matters: he was a former client of hers.
In other Boston Legal
news, Rene Auberjonois
will follow in the footsteps of Julie Bower in returning in the final season of the legal dramedy. Bower left early 2007 to have a baby. Auberjonois will appear as Paul Lewiston in the show's 10th episode. Technically, Lewiston didn't really leave the series; he just took some time off from Crane, Poole, and Schmidt to be with his daughter in December 2007.
Bowen plays Denise Bauer, whom we last saw marrying Brad Chase, played by Mark Valley
who's now on Fringe
. Bowen recently appeared on Weeds
in a recurring capacity. He also guest starred in last week's season premiere of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit
The tenth is a short two episodes away from the big Boston Legal
series finale. Catch “Dances with Wolves” tonight at 10pm on ABC.
