So maybe it was just me, but did anybody else think something momentous was implied in 'Boston Legal' this past week; something regarding Alan Shore and his client, the little girl who couldn't smile?
Amelia Warner's mother Janice used to work as a legal secretary at the same law firm as Alan did years before. We know she left first, as she tried to track him down there before looking for him at Young & Frutt (from 'The Practice').
Based on her conversation with Alan, Janice wasn't even pregnant when she left the employ of the law firm.
Or at least, she wasn't yet showing.....
We've seen how Alan has been with the women he's worked with in the past. He's taken out insurance against sexual harrassment suits! And it's not out of character for him to have sex with several women from the office at the same time - well, not exactly at the same time... but I wouldn't put it past him!
So does it seem too unlikely that Amelia Warner was Alan's biological daughter?
We never did see a husband/father in the picture when the girl took the Adams Academy to court in hopes of gaining entry into their class. And there was something about the blank slate of her face that might suggest a combined DNA match between her mother and Alan.
And then there was their shared interest in the artwork of Magritte. I've heard of such things happening in the real world - people who are related by blood sharing similar interests even though they have never met in person.
So what do you think? It's at least possible, right?
If not, convince me I'm wrong.....
