Excellent start for the third season

Furilo (Daniel J. Travanti, splendid as ever) finds himself caught in a fierce public maelstrom after two men rape a nun during a robbery at a church. Meanwhile, Belker (essayed with trademark growly gusto by Bruce Weitz) goes to bat for gay prostitute Eddie (a touching performance by Charles Levin) and Calletino (a fine Rene Enriquez) frets over a tax audit. Director Gregory Hoblit, working from a strong and riveting script by David Milch, builds plenty of sweaty tension -- the story occurs during a heat wave -- and maintains a quick pace throughout; the central plot about the nun proves to be quite potent and gripping, with the chaos created by the incident especially well captured. Hunter (a delightfully droll James Sikking) has a funny scene with Furillo in the men's room and Esterhaus (a marvelously vibrant Michael Conrad) delivers a hilarious roll call spiel about the unnecessary use of excessive profanity. Moreover, there are stand-out guest turns by George Wyner as shrewd D.A. Bernstein, Allan Rich as the no-nonsense Judge Schiller, Maurice Sneed as despicable hoodlum Gerald, and Silvana Gallardo as the distraught Mrs. Rodriguez. Best of all, this episode doesn't pull any harsh dramatic punches with Furillo being forced into a real moral tight spot that finds him bending the law out of brutal necessity in order to see that justice gets served in a swift and satisfying way.
