Quote Yale Steam: Phyllis is a main character and she is popoular. This is also a soap opera and this happened literally 20 years real time and it soap time. Did you really expect her to jail for years to come?
! The only way the statutes of limitations aren't up on this is because the writers "rewrote" history and said the bug was a federal agent ~) - which she wasn't at the time of the crime, anyone watching back then obviously knows that! That probably has something to do with the outcome of the trial! ;)
You echoed my thoughts perfectly gran. They so blatantly rewrote Chris's Federal agent status so that this case could be tried. I can see JG wanting to put this story line to bed by having some technicality surrounding Chris's FA status be the reason Phyllis gets off. Plus MS has been filming scenes with MM this week so I doubt she is in jail mid November.
Wrong ... Christine told Michael and Ronan she was working with the FBI on a rape case at that time and although she was not an agent ... she did have the bureau's protection.
Oops that slipped my mind however that was not the point. The point was that this was a re write. At no point was it ever stated in 1994 that she was working on a federal rape case. MAB just added that in there so that Phyllis could be prosecuted.
And Phyllis having a sister and a daddy in jail is also a rewrite. Just like Phyllis' 'footslipping' (if they actually make it so this bullsh!t was an accident) is also a glaring rewrite.
Point being, there have been a lot of rewrites. Christine being an FBI agent is hardly the first. LOL
