On the last episode of Boston Legal, his ex-flame Phoebe Prentice called Alan (James Spader) to attest to the innocence of her husband in the murder of a nurse.  Unbeknownst to her, Alan was secretly hoping that her husband was guilty and convicted to get a second chance at Phoebe.  Meanwhile, Denny thought things would work out for Alan since the client looked kind of unlikable and the jury would most likely rule against him.   It was a moral and professional dilemma on Crane, Poole & Schmidt.

On tonight's episode of Boston Legal, Alan and Shirley (Candice Bergen) are on for what looks like an uphill fight against the military while fighting on the side of a man whose brother died in a military hospital under suspicious circumstances.  Meanwhile, Jerry (Christian Clemenson) has to help his sister Joy (Annie Potts) in her quest for the identity of the father of her son.
