First, Jessica Warren (Laura Spencer), Brennans somewhat overbearing squintern with the unsinkable confidence and spunky attitude, is delightful without being gloaty as Brennans Twitter mentor. Second, Aubrey (John Boyd), the cakeable junior FBI agent with a reputation for being just shy of obnoxiously accusatory in the interrogation room (and damn, hes good at it), shows extraordinary compassion toward a young man who is willing to risk everything to provide for his younger brother. And finally, this episodes MVP, AUSA Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher), who puts her own neck on the line for a couple of kids she doesnt even know so that they wont have to fight as hard as she did in a world where the odds are stacked against them.
