Crockett and Tubbs discuss what will happen to Jerry, who had shot and killed Vinnie. They stated he'd go to prison, however when Vinnie was shot, he was holding several people at gunpoint. Under Florida law at the time, Jerry's use of force was legally justifiable as deadly force in defense of others, so it was unlikely he'd be sent to prison. See more »
One of the things that really helps to sell 'One Eyed Jack' is the casting of Dennis Farina as a mob heavy. He doesn't have all that much to do here, but he's got screen presence. And I'm of the mind that he only enriches a cast. This is a great episode; good story, Crockett's under the microscope, and Tubbs gets to swoop in and save the day.
But it's also notable for Edward James Olmos' introduction. And clearly the producers knew what they wanted with him from minute one. It's all tightly-wound brooding as soon as he strolls in. This is a series turning point and the difference in squad room climate from the pilot is striking.
Talk about an entrance.
