Allison dreams of a alternate life, one where she marries someone other than Joe - who happens to be quite handsome - and where she successfully completes law school becoming a high profile attorney. In her waking life at work, she is assisting DA Devalos who is trying to convict Sean Redburn who lured a pretty young woman to the US and proceeded to abuse and kill her. The DA hasn't been able to find the victim's body however and the defense has - in the form of the 'victim' herself, alive and well. As a result, Devalos feels he and Allison can no longer work together. As her dreams continue, Allison finds herself acting as Redburn's attorney and Joe is a potential expert witness in the case.

Poorly executed result of a clever idea
20 September 2019 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

As is often true in this show, the writers came up with a bizarre but very clever scenario. Unfortunately much of the acting was terrible and that wasn't helped by some of the silly individual scenes. I loved Jag, but Elliot phoned in his performance on a shaky connection. Even show veterans seemed stiff and unconvinced of their roles.

Another reviewer commented on the actions of the defense lawyer. My take on that would also question how the judge would view the last minute grandstanding which could have achieved the same results by private conference instead.
