I know you love your Callie, but lawyers work for their clients. If you're against something, you say no. That's how it works. I'm deeply disappointed that Callie allowed her lawyer to go so low & basically play the "bio" card & try to undermine Arizona as an equal parent, like Arizona was just someone who "showed up". When Callie takes the stand & is cross examined, she's basically going to be a detriment to her own lawyers case when she can't lie about Arizona's role as a mother.

The thing is, clients more often then not take their lawyer’s advice when it comes to strategy especially when it comes to fighting for custody.

Even Kevin McKidd said that Arizona and Callie try to talk but the lawyers get in the way of that.

Having said that, we know Callie views Arizona as Sofia’s mom too.

Do I wish she’d stop her lawyer from going that route? Yes, but it is what it is and I think the reason they went there was more to speak to ignorant views on what constitutes a parent.

Go ahead and make judgements based on a 30 second clip but I’m going to wait to watch the whole ep and then I’m still not going to pick sides because the story isn’t over.

It’s like this: you wake and watch TV, get in your car and listen to the radio you go to your little jobs or little school, but you don’t hear about that on the 6 o’clock news, why? ‘Cause nothing is really happening, and you go home and watch some more TV and maybe it’s a fun night and you go out and watch a movie. I mean it’s got so bad that half the people on TV, inside the TV, they’re watching TV. What are these people watching, people like me?
