Sergeant Davis (Erby) is suspected of murdering a transient, at least according to a supposed eye-witness (English). Jacobi, on the other hand, thinks Davis has a solid reputation and is probably being framed by somebody with a grudge. So he gets Pete to investigate. Black actors were not a common sight on serial TV of that period. Thus Black actor Erby makes the sergeant an unusual suspect. Note however how he listens to highbrow White composer Chopin, probably to make his ethnicity more accessible. The episode itself is harmed by a difficult plot line and poor acting from DiReda as a police station janitor. That climactic staging is well chosen, but emptied of latent tension by poor direction (Gist)-- the thrashing around lacks drama of having a clear point. All in all, it's a pretty contrived and unmemorable episode, compensated as usual by inventive photography and noirish atmosphere.
