Law & Order: Criminal Intent-Yesterday

Author: Scarecrow-88 from United States
14 November 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Captain Deakins attempts to warn his detectives, Goren and Eames, against pursuing the case of a young woman found dumped, her body 20 years old. Deakins was a detective who couldn't catch the killer, his case soon considered cold. A dead beat who can not hold a job and moves from one place to another, having battled alcoholism and drug abuse during his life, informs a former college mate that they must remove something from the basement of his parents' house because it was sold to the city to be torn down. Goren and Eames believe a very smart young man working for an engineering firm could be responsible for the murder of the corpse and could be tied to a second murder which happened ten years ago. Goren discovers that this man, Jay Lippman(Jim True-Frost), who was an ace in chess and had created a computer which could outplay most students, someone who needs to feel he's in control, was away one week(his wife admits this during an interrogation believing her husband, who was agitated and nervy before leaving, had an affair, returning relaxed and reserved)and could've committed the second homicide while on leave from his family and marriage. Here's another one of those episodes where someone brainy and cerebral, needing to distance himself from a squirmy no-good loser who keeps coming to him for loose cash, digs himself a hole by committing a third crime to cover his tracks, losing his edge and composure thanks to Goren who is able to crack his shell, getting to the truth in the interrogation room. When Jay's history with this former college friend(as it pertains to the guy's sister who has been holding a secret for quite some time)slowly becomes more and more clear, he can no longer run from his past and actions.
