What Happened To Vance & Sciorra?
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since I watch this show in chronological order, I was shocked to see two more regulars missing, especially "Ron Carver," the district attorney. Did I miss something? I remember "Capt. Deakins" (Jamey Sheridan) commenting about leaving at the end of the fifth season, but there was nothing on Carver (Courtney Vance Jr..) exiting the show.

The other person who has disappeared is "Det. Barek," played by Annabella Sciorra. Now, I know her character was bland (not Sciorra's fault if they gave her a dull roll) but, as in Vance's case - don't they owe us viewers an explanation? This is ridiculous. She's just gone and we are introduced to "Det. Logan's (Chris Noth) new partner, "Megan Wheeler" (Julianne Nicholson).

Nicholson looks like a good edition. The writers have given her a lot better dialog than they gave Sciorra, and she's young and pretty, so most male viewers will like the change. Still, it would have been courteous to mention what happened to these other characters, especially Carver since he was with the show since its inception. Replacing Vance is Theresa Randall as "A.D.A. Patricia Kent." Here role was so small in here I can't make a judgment about her. All I know is I really enjoyed Vance in this show and I'm not happy about him leaving. The same goes for Sheridan, who is more likable than Bogosian.

As for this episode's story, it is right out of the front pages of the newspapers the last few years: a female teacher having sex and a relationship with a younger student. I believe Mary Kay LaTourneau might have been the "inspiration" here but there have been more - several in Florida - that have followed in her footsteps.

This is a sordid story about two extremely people and sleazebag plastic surgeon, who is the father of the young boy involved with his teacher. Yeah, it's a pretty sleazy story. The episode is titled "Tru Love," and, boy, it's a strange kind of love, that's for sure!
