Did You Know?


In the scene where Detectives Eames and Goren discover the lawsuit that Gwen's parents filed against her mother's OB/GYN, the original amount awarded to Gwen was $3 million. After syndication, the episode has been shown on other networks including Ion Television (WPXNH) with the amount changed to $5 million. Eames' voice is dubbed over but you can still read her lips as she says "Three million, in trust to Gwen". See more »


Nicole Wallace: I thought this was the land of second chances.
Detective Robert Goren: There are no second chances for you, Nicole. Because wherever you go, people die.

Always Great To See ''Nicole' & 'Bobby' Trade Wits
17 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These episodes with "Nicole Wallace" are tremendous. Olivia d'Abo does a great job playing her. I'm sure the people connected with this TV show that, because they keep bringing her back. She's "Det. Robert Goren's" nemesis and it's always fun watching these two people match wits.

There is a great twist to this adventure between these two, one that puts Nicole in a new light....somewhat! I won't say because I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen this episode. Suffice to say that when "Bobby" figures out what's going on, it's fascinating and a shock. Great stuff. By the way, she's the only one I recall who calls "Robert Goren" by "Bobby."

This starts a little slowly and is a bit confusing, which is normal, but once Nicole's pretty face pops up on screen, the story is off-and-running. The big question is, Is Nicole behind more murders and trying to ruin another family to get money?"

I always enjoy seeing Vincent D'Onofrio's facial expressions when he deals with this woman, too. Vince does a great jobs with little mannerisms, as regular viewers of this show know.
