When Asten gets grief from other doctors, the police and grieving families about the many mistakes suddenly made by one of their best Deputy Coroners, Dr. Lorraine Lindeman, Quincy wants to help her, as Lorraine was once instrumental in helping him on an impossible case. Quincy and Asten are sure Lorraine has a problem, but she will not talk about it, so Asten decides to give her less strenuous duty. Lorraine gets upset and takes a leave of absence. Quincy brings her file to a good friend in the L.A. County Personnel Department, Margo Hennessey, who recognizes the problem; Margo is a recovering alcoholic, herself. Quincy and Margo worry Lorraine may drink herself to death and Gary, her husband, will do nothing to stop her. Written by LA-Lawyer

Total crap!
29 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is got to be one of the worst episodes of this series. Most of the last season were crap anyways but this one takes the cake. Quincy gets almost no screen time and there is no crime committed. This whole episode and everything that happens is taken right out of a college textbook on addiction. The twelve step group that is infamous is not mentioned by name but this episode plays out like a 50 minute long public service announcement for them. Terrible acting, terrible story, terrible episode. Anyone that has ever struggled with addiction will find this one offensive. Making addiction suffers out to be helpless little sick kittens with no spine is not going to get anyone well. I would suggest you skip over this one entirely.
