Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of a prostitute, Gwen George, who was found shot to death in an alleyway. More interestingly, she had $2000 in cash on her and she has a record for having blackmailed one of her clients. There are several possible suspects, including a local store owner who's had it with hookers on the street in front of his store but CCTV footage clears him. They do catch one the dead woman's clients, Dr. Mark Danforth, in a lie and they suspect she may have been blackmailing him. McCoy thinks they don't have a case but when Claire Kincaid thinks they do, he tells her to go ahead and prosecute the case herself. She gets the conviction but quickly begins to believe they have been manipulated by the real killer. Written by garykmcd

Jill Is given her wings
2 December 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode Humiliation belongs to Jill Hennessey and to guest star Bob Dishy who made the first of several appearances as high priced criminal attorney Lawrence Weaver. In this episode Hennessey is given her wings to take the lead and try Dr. Jonathan Walker who is a high priced plastic surgeon accused of killing a prostitute.

The episode unusual for a Law and Order story lacks verisimilitude because of the lengthy investigation that Jerry Orbach and Benjamin Bratt go through in finding a culprit and making an arrest. Prostitute homicide are sadly never dealt with by law enforcement this thoroughly in real life.

Hennessey takes on the F. Lee Bailey type lawyer and wins, but she starts to question some things afterward. Eventually however the justice system gets this one right.

Dishy would be back again and I wish he'd come back more to the series. Look also for nice performances by Walker and by Clare Wren as Walker's beauty queen of a wife.
