Trivia

This episode revisits the events of Law & Order: Indifference (1990), which focuses on the murder trial of Dr. Jacob Lowenstein and his wife Carla Lowenstein. Both David Groh and Marcia Jean Kurtz reprise their roles from 14 years earlier while Dann Florek makes a guest appearance as Captain Donald Cragen, who was a regular cast member of Law & Order (1990) at the time of that episode. It is interesting to note that twice in this episode there are references to Jacob Lowenstein having previously made a deal for manslaughter. However, in "Indifference", a jury found him guilty of second degree murder. See more »

Goofs

The episode "Fixed" features a cameo appearance by Dann Florek as Captain Donald Cragen, however the opening credits mistakenly identify Cragen as a Lieutenant. (Cragen is, and always has been, a Captain in his entire run on the show). Subsequent rebroadcasts of this episode featured a fixed version of the credits where Cragen is correctly identified as a Captain. See more »

Public Service Homicide
7 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Other than Paul Newman playing Fast Eddie Felson in The Hustler and The Color Of Money with a 25 year gap between those two feature films, I can't think of any players doing their roles 14 years apart as David Groh and Marcia Jean Kurtz as those battering and battered Lowensteins in different episodes of Law And Order 14 years apart.

Back in 1990 in an episode based on the Joel Steinberg case, David Groh was found guilty and went to prison for the murder of his little daughter and child abuse of his son. Marcia Jean Kurtz repeats her role as the battered spouse for whom the question of guilt and complicity still remain.

As Jacob Lowenstein, David Groh is run down in the street and Accident Investigation leaves no doubt this was quite deliberate. He loses a leg and eventually dies.

But even a public service homicide, a phrase I heard cops use about certain victims in real life, Jesse Martin and Dennis Farina still have to find the doer. It turns out to be a prison therapist Tracy Thorne who believes that Groh was conning her to get release. She's got good reason to think that it is so and she decides to do something about it.

No doubt she's one appealing defendant and Sam Waterston is going to have one huge task to get any jury to find her guilty.

You'll have to see this 14 year gap sequel to find out. It's an episode worth the wait.
