This paranoia-heavy, overplotted episode sees Pembleton (Braugher) and Bayliss (Secor) investigate a possible patricide, with the main suspect, Laumer (Terry Kinney), turning out to be a secret agent.

Director Clark Johnson (who also stars as detective Lewis in the series) plays with juxtapositions and symbols - a recurring imagery involving water suggests the liquid, mercurial nature of the spy world.

Worth mentioning is the epilogue, a grace note featuring one of those low-key, behind the scenes Homicide moments focused on the aftermath of the case, with the detectives confronting Laumer.
