Final 2-parter concludes
23 August 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Chinatown," the series' last 2-part storyline, concludes with Harris and Dietrich stuck together in a sleazy hotel room with their uncooperative witness Victor Ling (Chao-Li Chi). Dietrich doesn't appreciate being awakened early, while Harris objects to his partner's frequently playing the clarinet! More than a week passes with no positive results, the desperate Harris threatening to quit before it's over. Meanwhile, Miss Caroline Fitzjames (Joanna Barnes) files another complaint at the 12th Precinct, this time charging harassment from Lt. Ben Scanlon (George Murdock, eleventh of twelve), forever pestering her with unsolicited phone calls or personal visits. Barney and Wojo cannot hide their amusement at this unexpected and certainly unusual turn of events (Caroline: "he does belong to you doesn't he?" Wojo: "he does now!" Caroline: "you know I really don't enjoy doing this!" Wojo: "maybe you're not trying hard enough!"). Scanlon offers the widow a sincere apology, especially for the flowers she'll expect to find at home (Scanlon: "just throw them in the garbage, forget about them!" Caroline: "I will!"). Phil Diskin's role as Gillis is nowhere in evidence, though he still receives on screen billing. George Murdock's final appearance as Scanlon comes in the very last episode, "Landmark."
