Editor's note: Selin Darkalstanian is a producer for HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell show. She has been in the courtroom every day of the Jodi Arias trial, taking notes on the jurors' reactions.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez's much anticipated cross-examination of Jodi Arias has made for riveting courtroom drama.
Since the start of this trial, almost two months ago, everyone has been waiting for this showdown between Arias and Martinez. Now, after three days of heated cross-examination between the two, everyone wants to know what the jury's reaction is to this fiery exchange.
The best way I can describe the jury as I sit in the courtroom is that it looks as though they are watching a tennis match. Their heads move from one side of the courtroom to the other, from Martinez to Arias, as the two fire back at one another. The jurors literally look like spectators at a sporting event!

Of course, there is no way to tell what is going through the jurors' heads as they listen to the testimony, but one thing is for sure: This jury is focused on the intense exchange between the two sides. Those seven women and 11 men are paying close attention to everything going on in that courtroom. They have stopped taking notes and are now watching this sexually explicit trial almost as if it is a reality TV show...and in many ways that is what it has become!
