Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of a psychiatrist, Dr. Lillian Hampton who is found bludgeoned to death in her office. Her last appointment of the day was with a young woman, Megan Nelson, but the Director of the clinic heard a man's voice in her office some time after that. After eliminating other suspects, they come to believe that the man in the office was Megan's father Frank Nelson. Megan had been seeing Dr. Hampton for some time and was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. ADA McCoy decides to prosecute Mr. Nelson when Megan reveals an old memory of him killing her mother. When evidence suggests otherwise, they have to consider if one of Megan's other personalities may be responsible. Written by garykmcd

Great episode
19 April 2013 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Only a few words....... Great episode as many were on 'L&O'. Fancie Swift's acting is .. holy molly. Really good to see that their are so many people capable of such skill.

It has always amazed me how the quality of script & actors has been so high. As much as this episode is worth mentioning. On its own. L&O had an incredible amount of '10's' to it's credit. The talent Fancie shows is such a pleasure to watch. How they came out week after week without letup.??. Writers must be finally getting paid enough money that their are enough to go around.. That so many people get into the career is wonderful.
