Storyline

When someone spikes the punch - leaving three dead in an isolated island church - Detectives Goren and Bishop first believe the murders are related to parishioner politics, but then discover a sorrowful sexual lifestyle among the town's jaded youth that points to three teenaged girls who might be connected to the drownings of three former lovers. The heady Goren uses his knowledge of "Siddhartha" to query one of the girls whose undying allegiance to a male classmate is harrowing. Written by Anonymous

One Big Flaw
6 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show. Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, Jamey Sheridan, and Courtney B. Vance are always excellent. The writing is almost always spot on. They only have about 44 minutes to work with, and they usually get it done, well. This episode is no different. D'Onofrio and Erbe have a real simpatico. And the story; what seems like just a poisoning crime. Builds to something unexpected, as is frequently the case in this great series. BUT, like I said in my title for this review - one nearly constant flaw in this, and really in all the Law & Order series's. Silent Lawyers. Every time a Law & Order Detective gets "skel in the box". That "Skel" will almost certainly have a lawyer that just sits there and lets the detectives do things a real lawyer would never do. One one other less frustrating flaw. Most of the people they get in the box. Fall for the tricks that the detectives and prosecutor play on them, and spill their guts. As usual, Goran is able to sift through the minute details of this crime and get to the bottom of it. Another good episode, well worth watching.
