Trivia

Like many "Law & Order" stories, this "ripped-from-the-headlines" episode has some basis in reality. The flamboyant murder victim here possesses many characteristics of the late hotel magnate Leona Helmsley (1920-1997), who was tarred by the Manhattan media with the nickname "The Queen of Mean." Although Helmsley served prison time (for tax evasion and mail fraud), she was released and died of natural causes at home, splitting her vast fortune among many worthy charities, family members ... and her Maltese dog Trouble.

Vanity, Greed, Lust, Violent Natures: They're All Here
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An older lady who owns a big hotel in the city is drowned - or it so appears - in her bathtub. Suspects include her daughter, who was getting a hard time from her mom about her boyfriend along worth general threats because "as long as you continue to live under my roof," etc.

However, we also see a number of other possible suspects such as the daughter's finance, who is obviously attracted to her money now that she inherits the hotel; a salon guy who gives Botox injections, an opposing hotel owner who wanted to buy the victim's hotel and could do so if she was out of the way, and even the husband (Hal Linden - good 'ole "Barney Miller"), who doesn't appear to be shaken up over his wife's death.

Her death? Oh, yes.....she died with an injection of botox - to her neck, while she was sound asleep on pills and wine. There is a quick sermon in this episode about vanity.

This episode has some shocking twists near the end and super shocking ending.
