Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of Jennifer Gorham who is found in Central Park. They quickly realize it isn't a mugging as they first thought as someone left a trail for them to follow. All of the evidence points to Jennifer's fiancé Dan Garrett who searched her apartment after the incident. He eventually claims Jennifer's death was an accident but also that he had been having an affair with his therapist, Dr. Diane Mead, who told him him that he could not have her if he continued with Jennifer. DA Adam Schiff thinks it will almost impossible to convict a doctor for the actions of a patient but ADA Stone thinks he has a chance at a conviction. Written by garykmcd

A real treat
4 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a treat it was to see Lindsay Crouse and Carolyn McCormick, two actresses who should be more famous than they are, play a scene together. Lindsay has been great in everything I've seen her in, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's fourth season to first season of Hack to theatrical film House of Games. I'll always remember Carolyn from a guest role on Star Trek: The Next Generation as a holodeck siren in first season. Boy was she hot! I felt Riker's disappointment when he couldn't get computer to reproduce her. But I digress. This was one of Law & Order's better efforts (not that I've ever seen a bad episode). Evidently, writers were giving Steven Hill better lines in third season because suddenly he's making me laugh out loud. Lindsay plays a psychiatrist who is accused of influencing a patient to kill his girlfriend. Her explanation on stand for behavior vis-a-vis patient is patently absurd, yet funny because she delivers lines so matter-of-factly.
