Generally one of the better episodes.
16 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Overall, this episode is very good but I have one reservation. Like CC's review, I thought that the hyper-religious woman was like a walking stereotype--a negative but hardly believable person. If, as the show says, that this is based on a real case, I have a hard time imagining a person THAT awful hiding behind God. Sure, it can happen in real life, but it also seemed more like a caricature than a real person.

Aside from this one complaint, this is one of the better episodes. What made it more enjoyable to watch was seeing how the usually imperturbable Joe Friday was on edge--being eaten apart by seeing one too many good people killed needlessly. In this case, a very nice young widow with a beautiful young daughter. This mother was raped and shot through the head by some scum-bag and Joe was having a much tougher time than usual separating himself from his work.

Another nice aspect of the film was the very touching scene at the end. It is a tad schmaltzy, but good schmaltz!
