“You think he did it?” Laurie asks Dr. Vogel in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the all-new episode of Defending Jacob. Dr. Vogel replies, “I didn’t say that.” Laurie doesn’t think she even needed to. “Laurie, I have absolutely no way of knowing if Jacob did or did not do it, and it’s also not my job,” Dr. Vogel adds. This doesn’t do anything to calm Laurie’s nerves. She refuses to let her questions go.
“Will you stop? Anything in there you could say about a million other teenagers,” Andy tells Laurie. Laurie doesn’t listen to her husband. She wants answers about Jacob. “You never see these things. You never saw them then. You were so desperate to be normal. For us all to be normal,” Laurie says to Andy. That’s quite a sharp dig about Andy’s past and his father.
Andy quickly replies, “We are normal.” Laurie thinks this is all anything but normal. “This situation? Of course not,” Andy fires back. “Jacob? Yes, I know he is.” Andy doesn’t think a few test results mean anything when it comes to determining whether or not Jacob committed murder.
Laurie looks to Dr. Vogel and pleads, “Just answer me!” Laurie, Andy, and Klein all look at Dr. Vogel to hear what she has to say. “I wish I could,” Dr. Vogel says. That’s not the answer any of them want to hear.
