As Casey walks into court, she is thrilled. We have not seen her smile this much in a very long time Shes smiling because she feels confident. She feels secure. Why? It is because mommy came to her rescue yet once again.
Cindy has tried to protect Casey and ignored Casey’s bad behavior just like she has done with all of Casey’s bad behavior from when Casey was pregnant, a high school drop out, and when Casey did not have a job. Casey is thrilled because mommy has delivered and continue to come to the rescue.
Here we see Casey bursting with joy. She can barely contain herself.We also see Casey with a clenched fist with a stretched out hand which shows a combination of arrogance on her part.
Casey is happy and confident as she listens to Mason From her cocked head we see she is very interested and attentive to what Mason is telling her. No doubt he is telling her that she has a good chance to be let off now that her mother is on the team and that Lee will get up on the stand and will be supportive as well.
This is a dramatic change on Casey’s courtroom demeanor. She has not been this smug, cocky and happy in a long time. Perhaps her little meltdown and temper tantrum when Cindy refused to look at her , got to Cindy. So she changed her tune.
Now we know where Casey learned her lying behavior. She learned it from mother Cindy who lied on the stand over and over again.
