Did You Know?


Courtney B. Vance guest starred on two earlier episodes of Law & Order but in this episode, Jack McCoy suggests that A.D.A Ron Carver should sit second-chair on the case. Vance played Carver on Law & Order spin-off Criminal Intent. See more »

Visual Editors added something
11 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bit into the show, Briscoe and Green have found a suspect and as they are arresting him, I think that the editors added in a little joke: he has a devil tail that goes whipping out the door after him. Right as he is being led out of his apartment on the left side of the screen along the brick wall a cartoonish devil tail (black and pointy) whips along after him (similar to the whip in the Lord of the Rings that comes up after Gandalf on the bridge and pulls him into darkness). Please post if you know where a list of these Law and Order "easter eggs" (is that the correct term) are compiled. I have tried in vain to find such a compilation but to no avail.
