In the TNT drama’s Season 2 finale, airing Monday, Jan. 13, at 9/8c, Rusty already is facing his greatest challenge yet when he takes the stand to testify against serial rapist/murderer Phillip Stroh. But complicating the case even further, the D.A.’s office must go head-to-head with Ryan’s character Linda Rothman, a tough, powerful attorney who doesn’t let morals stand in her way of winning a case. (Gee, wonder why Stroh picked her.)

Check out two exclusive photos below, then read on for more:

    Always liked Jeri Ryan, ever since Seven-of-Nine.

    FYI, you listed “Shark” twice.

    I wish Kyra was in this episode, Stroh put her through so much , and cost her her career

  3. Is Billy Burke appearing as Stroh? I’d be surprised but it would be a lovely treat for longtime TC/MC fans.

    • Trylon says:

      That’s what I was wondering too. After all the years of build-up, how can they possibly do the trial of Phillip Stroh justice without Brenda Leigh, much less Phillip Stroh himself? They should have held this storyline until after Revolution’s inevitable cancellation so at least Billy Burke would be free to return.

      • Trylon says:

        No offense to fans of Revolution; I’m one myself. But anyone who doesn’t see the writing on the wall needs to clean their glasses. Just hope it gets some sort of resolution.

    I wish they’d bring Kyra back for a guest appearance too.

    Hmm… Surely he has to be guilty. This storyline needs to be wound up. I mean it spans two different series. Hopefully Kara makes a cameo, even if it’s something like video footage of her giving evidence.

  6. jm says:

    if kyra apears in this episode, it will be so nice if they dont “spoilt” it beforehand.

  7. jessieboy says:

    Hopefully it’s taken care of in 1 episode so that annoying kid can go away.

  8. Aimee says:

    I like Jeri Ryan and I’m glad to see her back on TV but…I am so tired of this Phillip Stroh storyline. Enough already.

  9. amicam says:

    love Jeri, and can’t wait to see the courthouse scenes.

    How could this normally good website highlight her brief time on Leverage as a highlight of her career.. While it’s been a long time since Voyager, that’s the role that made her famous… Her similar positions as the boss of the lead characters in Body of Proof and Shark along with Boston Public were far more important..
