The recently canceled All stand up finished his run on Monday night with a de facto series finale full of career transitions and romantic upheavals.
Let’s start with Lola, whose high-profile murder trial prompted her to allow cameras in her courtroom. She fears the media will only distort the story, but her husband Robin retorts that this will allow for full transparency. Even with three challengers vying for her seat, Lola isn’t sure she wants to campaign when she could just do her job as a judge. Ness, in turn, gives her an inspiring pep talk about what she needs on the bench.
Lola later sentences mayor’s hopeful son Martin Moore to 11 years in prison for murder, which led Moore to proclaim on television that Lola is left-wing poison in the justice system and that he’s going to do it all. what is in his power to remove his seat. But Robin believes in Lola and announces that he’s taking extended leave from the FBI to be a stay-at-home dad, so he’s not going to Ohio after all. “My priority is our family and I am by your side as you recover your fire,” he says. And to give them some hope before the war, the couple renew their vows in front of their friends and colleagues, with Lisa officiating at the ceremony.
Elsewhere, a conversation with Lola – welcome back, stairwell! – gives Mark the idea to propose to Amy at the rink where they had their first date. “Every time I fall on my ass, you grab me back.” You take care of me. You make me smile, ”Mark tells Amy. “So I want to reciprocate. I want to keep you smiling for the rest of your life. Amy Quinn, will you marry me… after your divorce? Laughing, she happily accepts.
Meanwhile, Luke’s probationary interview with DA Bravo goes better than expected – but he still turns down the DA office job, opting instead to work as a public defender. With Emily gone, they will be understaffed, he reasoned. Speaking of Emily, Luke tries to convince her to stay in Los Angeles, pointing out how big an impact she has on the lives of her clients. But Emily maintains that she can’t really change when everything stays the same around her, so she leaves. At the airport, Luke rushes in at the last minute with a statement about how he wants to be like the fierce lawyer he loves.
“I love you too, but I can’t stay,” Emily replies. However, she is also not leaving for Miami with Joaquin! Instead, she goes to Puerto Rico, solo, to visit family and get away from work. Luke sends him off with a kiss and promises to wait for him.
