Bad Judge” Season 1 Episode 9 “Face Mask Mom” will air on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on NBC. After being gone for two weeks, the show returns with a new episode, which will feature its Christmas special. Before we get into the details, let’s walk back to the events of the last episode in this quick recap. 

In “The Cat’s Out of the Bag” (air date: Nov. 20, 2014), Rebecca (Kate Walsh) was visited by her ex-husband, Keith, who told her that their cat has died. This was a huge deal for her as the cat was beloved, but she wasn’t sure if she should go to the funeral. She and Keith don’t exactly have the best relationship.

While he didn’t realize that the girl he was dating casually used to be married, Gary (Ryan Hansen) gave Rebecca some good advise. He sensed that there were still some unresolved issues between Rebecca and her ex, and so he suggested that going to the funeral would help her get closure.

When Rebecca got to her ex-husband’s place, literally nothing has changed. It was the same when she left him 10 years ago. She also discovered that the cat didn’t actually die. It was a ploy from her ex-husband, who wanted her back so she could sub for the band and play the drums for this big gig.

Rebecca was mad that, once again, Keith would stoop so low and fool her. But Gary made her see things differently. In her relationship with her ex-husband, it seemed it was Rebecca who grew up, while Keith remained stuck in his rut. Rebecca blamed him when he couldn’t keep up with her.

With a change of heart, Rebecca gave in and offered to play for Keith’s band one last time, while Gary and the rest of her friends watched their gig. And with that, she gained closure from this chapter in her life.

Spoiler Alert: “Bad Judge” Season 1 Episode 9 “Face Mask Mom” will air on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on NBC.

In this upcoming episode, Rebecca will be trying the case of the Face Mask Mom, which involves a mother who tackled a football player in the PeeWee (kids) league.

But the air conditioning in Rebecca’s court room is busted, and the heat outside is sweltering. Even though it’s the Christmas season, it still feels like summer in California. This condition will, thus, make it harder for Rebecca to sit on the trial.

With the help of her staff, they will be looking for the maintenance guy from the union, who’s supposed to take care of the air conditioning.  But he’s nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, Rebecca and the Face Mask Mom will both have something to realize this holiday: that having friends around is the best way to enjoy it.

And that's what you can expect from “Bad Judge” Season 1 Episode 9 “Face Mask Mom,” which will air on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on NBC. The show will once again go on a hiatus after this episode, but it will come back in the midseason to air its remaining installments.
