Amazingly enough, the Chris O'Donnell character gets away with it all. It's enough to throw a TV brick at the TV screen. The guy, who finds out his wife was cheating on him with his best friend and that his children are not his children, goes nuts after finding his wife and best friend in bed and shoots them Scarface style. He's totally in denial of the situation (or that's what we are led to believe). Sheila's case was a bit disturbing (does anything think stuffing your mother's head and mounting it for the wall is a good idea, even in times of extreme grief from her passing?) Alan's case was handled with a lot of sensitivity, which is why Alan is such a fun character to watch because he can be a leech in one scene, and just as believably sympathetic in another. Spader's main strength is to just stare knowingly into the camera, and nod. The writers have no idea what to do with Jimmy, who's stuck handling an unlawful termination of a pregnant nun. Loved Sheila's pointers to Jimmy to get that case settled.
