Joanna and Billy saved her career and their relationship? – Also, write it down!



There was a palpable tension between Burden of truth‘s Billy and Joanna throughout the final season of the Canadian Import, and the series finale, at first, seemed to add to it.

As Joanna has resigned her law degree, Billy is upset that she has made a big decision in her life without even telling him about it. As she uses her last day as a lawyer to work with Luna on securing a settlement with Dee, Billy meets his father, who gives him difficult but surprisingly good advice when the lawyer laments that Crawford Chang is not really an operation without Jeanne. Billy was always the one to take care of his children, Hank shares, but being the son of a drunkard changes the way you see yourself. Then he encourages Billy to start acting like he’s in the big leagues. With that, Billy goes back to the mining union and makes them sign a deposit.

Meanwhile, Helen wakes up and asks for Joanna. When Billy meets her in the hospital, he reassures Joanna that she stands up for people and that she has more than made up for the damage she has done in the past. But Joanna doesn’t care if she’s a good lawyer. It is if she is good anybody that torments her. This question about her character is central to Joanna’s disciplinary hearing. Billy maintains that his actions are the result of an abusive relationship with his father / boss. Joanna tells the panel that she believes in trying and that she will never stop trying. Ultimately, the board finds that she did not act in good faith towards the law, but they are also swayed by the good she has done since then, so Joanna’s law license does is suspended only for one year.

At home, Joanna gives Billy a watch to celebrate her new union client and confesses that she was really in hiding when she arrived at Millwood. “You saw her before me and you loved her before me,” she said. “You gave me the courage to be the person I always should have been.” She promises to always be there for him, and Billy notes that it sounds a lot like a proposal.

“It’s a counter-proposal,” Joanna replies with a smile and tears in her eyes. “I want it to be you and me.” For real. Forever.”

An emotional Billy tells her that no one fights harder and loves her more. Before her he didn’t think much of himself, but she made him feel special and inspired him. “I accept your counter-proposal. You and me. Forever, ”he said, before lamenting that he had nothing to give her.

“Can I have your mother’s ring?” Joanna asks softly as the baby starts to cry, and I think that means they’re engaged ?! Or at least they’re the fiancés version of Joanna and Billy.

In the final scene, Joanna reads over Billy’s shoulder as he drafts a legal document. Baby Cassidy – yes, we go back to the name of episode 1 – waves her arms. Billy asks if the name is final (“He was just doing his job,” Joanna replies), then reminds Joanna that her license is on hold so she can’t study the document. She advises him to swap the second and third paragraphs, which is better, Billy concedes. “Last time. I promise you,” Joanna said as she walked away.
