Storyline

A strange woman walks into the precinct and gives Sipowicz and Medavoy some information about a disappearance that occurred eight years ago and where the body may be located. Meanwhile, domestic violence in Russell's parents apartment leads to tragedy when her drunken father is found murdered in their apartment and her brother, Doug, claims to have shot him in self defense. But Simone thinks otherwise and presses to get the truth about what really happened to her Russell's father and soon learns that Russell's simpleton mother in fact did the deed and Doug is trying to take the rap out of blind loyalty to the family.

Weak Story Line
13 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For some reason the writers of NYPD Blue decided to junk realism and insert pure Hollywood fiction. The result was the weakest episode viewed.

The main story in this episode concerns Russell's father being killed in a domestic argument. To create dramatic scenes Russell is allowed to run the questioning of her family, which would never be allowed in any type of investigation.

The secondary story dealt with an eight year old murder that Andy solved without too many problems.

The episode has none of the zip of earlier shows but since the series lasted another ten years it must have been a miss step in a long list of episodes.
