Storyline

The murder of a young girl revives memories, especially in Bayliss, of an earlier case--Adena Watson, which was not resolved. Pembleton is the primary and is angered by Bayliss' interference and obsession with the old case. A reported sexual assault on a friend of the murdered girl produces a connection but no proof. Will this be another case which has no definitive answer? Written by jeaneva

The Adena Watson murder has been one of the main arcs throughout the whole series, sometimes to the point of being overdone (ex. "Finnegan's wake" in season 6). Still, this fine episode deftly handles the aftermath of that case on detective Bayliss (Kyle Secor).

A girl is found dead - Bayliss suspects a connection with the Watson killing and clashes with the primary, his partner Pembleton (Andre Braugher). And when Pembleton gets a suspect in the box (Chris Tucker as a glassy-eyed, moronic creep), Bayliss' emotional baggage gets the better of him.

A compelling, uncompromising Homicide episode. You don't see many cop shows ending with a detective tossing the portrait of a victim into the garbage bin.

8/10
