While the killer is driving on the road, a highway sign says Interstate 95. He is not on an Interstate highway since there are turn lanes, intersections, and a sign for a traffic signal ahead. None of these are on Interstates. See more »

This episode is a bit jarring and out of sync with Homicide's standard format and not one of the shows strong episodes.

However, it is an interesting episode for fans of Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice etc).

Bayliss and Pembleton are tapped by Giardello and the FBI to anticipate and assist in the hunt and capture of a spree killing working his way up from Florida north on I-95.

The twist reveal that concludes the episode is well supported by visual and audio evidence hidden in plain sight throughout the episode, which, considering the potential ridiculously clichéd nature of the reveal serves as a counterpoint and a bit of nyah-nyah-so-there to naysayers.

While a weak episode for Homicide it must be noted that this would be a standout episode for any contemporaneous (or even more modern) crime show.
