Storyline

A male prostitute offers to reveal the identity of a multiple murderer as part of a plea bargain. He admits to luring in the victims and stealing their rings, but not to being the killer. The Homicide Squad takes turns on a stakeout next door to the suspect. Interactions between squad members and between the couple whose house they "occupy" run the gamut of emotions.

No job is worth that

Stakeout is a gem, a character driven episode which sums up the whole series. The Homicide Squad sets up a stakeout to catch a murderer: the script focuses on the interplay between detectives, as they muse over their job and personal lives. Writing is excellent, with vivid dialogues which sharply define every character.

As hours pass by, problematic Bayliss (Kyle Secor) thinks about quitting Homicide, and his cold partner Pembleton (Andre Braugher) is both irked and concerned; cynical Munch (Richard Belzer) comments on his disappointment about friends and people in general; captain "Gee" Giardello (Yaphet Kotto) realizes he is probably going to miss his daughter's wedding, which he wasn't sure he wanted to attend in the first place.

Captivating, expertly paced, directed with a sure hand by veteran John McNaughton, Stakeout is one of the best episodes of the series.
