A little preachy but a very important episode.
14 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Accomplice to Murder" begins with a woman coming into her apartment and confronting a burglar. The burglar drops the loot and just wants to run away--but the woman is startled and falls backwards onto the couch. Despite not being a serious fall, the woman dies! The thief is caught but insists (correctly) that he did not touch the woman and she shouldn't have died. When Quincy digs deeper, it appears that the lady died as a result of previous injuries--injuries inflicted by her 'loving' husband and which were ignored by both the police and doctors! In addition, Quincy meets a woman who is currently in an abusive relationship and he works hard to help her get out and remain safe.

While there are parts of the show that are preachy (such as the courtroom scene), the overall message is very important and well worth seeing. A very good episode to say the least--and a great one to show your teens.
