Well, here's my two cents on the whole Jo/Lindsay thing... Lindsay's comment had nothing to do with blaming Jo and everything to do with trying to empathize with her situation. Last year, Lindsay was faced with a case where she felt very responsible for what was happening but she didn't end up biting Jo's head off. Instead she listened patiently while Jo offered her some words of support. I think Lindsay was trying to draw on that experience - on that connection between the two of them - because if anyone would know how Jo might be feeling in that particular moment, it would be Lindsay. There was no blame, only the acknowledgement that she understood how important the case was to Jo. I don't think she was at all out of line - but Jo certainly was with her response. She bit Lindsay's head off, for Christ's sake! And when Lindsay came to apologize for the misunderstanding (which she shouldn't have had to do, IMO, but she did anyway because she's Lindsay and that's the kind of person she is - she doesn't want to create waves or have unease with her coworkers) Jo still didn't apologize for the gaping, bloody hole where Lindsay's head used to be. Instead she tried to justify her reaction while minimizing Lindsay's own apology. And as for the person who commented that Lindsay has been rude and obnoxious in the past... I'm sorry. Have you been watching the same show that I've been watching for the past 8 years? The only instance I can think of where she's been on the giving end of being rude to one of her coworkers was when the case from Montana came back to haunt her and she was having flashbacks and snapped at Stella one time. *rolls eyes* Because one time and always are the exact same thing.
