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

The Three Faces of Megan
3 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Francie Swift in her performance as a murder suspect with multiple personalities steals this particular Law And Order episode from all the regulars. Classic movie fans will recognize that this particular story is a reworking of the famous classic that got Joanne Woodward a Best Actress Oscar for Three Faces Of Eve.

A psychologist is murdered during the late hours she kept by one of her patients. Jerry Orbach and Chris Noth narrow it down to Swift who works as a server in a diner.

Swift is one psychological mess, her different personalities might stem from witnessing her own mother's murder. By her father Sam Groom nonetheless.

The twp question are is she the murderer, but also which of herselves did the deed.

Bob Dishy makes one of his appearances as defense attorney Lawrence Weaver who is right up there with Tovah Feldshuh as guest star defense attorney. Dishy is always convincing and acts like a really good criminal attorney.

Francie Swift however makes this one a special episode.
