I've always thought Alexis was basically a decent woman & despite her taste in men, an intelligent woman, as well. But, her behavior since hearing of Jerry's involvement in Michael's shooting is both baffling & disheartening. She's always been the law & order DA, dragging people in & throwing them in jail with little or no evidendce. Here she has a well respected man in Jax, confiding his brother's latest crime. Instead of trying to convince him of the flaws in his reasoning, she agrees to keep quiet about Jerry's involvement. So, there goes her legal ethics. By agreeing to keep silent, she also neglects to point out that knowledge after the fact is also a crime & so is witholding evidence in a felony.
If that's not bad enough, she goes, alone & unarmed, to the garage, apparently to confront a known & dangerous sociopath & finds both him & another alleged criminal lying unconscious on the ground several feet away from the point of origin, Jerry's car & cannot figure out who the intended target was. She can see that Jerry was holding the keys in his hand, yet she still can't figure that out.
I am disappointed that the writers have dumbed down this character to add to a go nowhere plot that is best forgotten. I'm disheartened that they've destroyed the one reliably solid thing Alexis had going for her & that was her legal expertise & ethics. I am saddened that, instead of telling Jax all the reasons why covering for Jerry was a bad idea, she went along with it. Not only are the writers in the process of ruining a complex & interesting character, but they are doing it to continue a boring & irritating storyline. It's a waste of Ms. Grahn's talent.
