After watching the series for months, I thought the ending was thrown together to get everything in. Certain parts need more of an explanation. Patty lost her key witness in the end and the trial ended, with Ellen not losing. Ellen finding out she was pregnant married and had a child and left her practice to pursue a better type of life. Patty continued on in her practice, alone after the death of her son, although keeping the custody of her grandchild. I liked the show very much and will miss watching it.
