Trivia

The casting problems come to the fore with this episode. We see a bearded Jeremy Sisto as barrister Clint Glover. In the very next episode, with some major casting changes, we see Sisto playing Detective Cyrus Lupo. See more »

Goofs

The senator's ex-wife has very large breasts, yet when her corpse is shown in the morgue, its breasts are unremarkable enough that it's unclear whether the body is that of a man or a woman. With the sheet pulled as tight as it is against the body, breasts this large would be obvious. See more »

The murder of the former wife of State Senator Harry Hamlin brings Jesse Martin and Milena Govich to investigate. But before the investigation is through they have a second murder of one of Hamlin's family, that of his daughter by a first marriage.

What was interesting about this was that the detectives on their way to pick Hamlin up see squad cars responding to a 911 call and they come in just in time to see Hamlin with a bloody knife standing over his dead daughter. Now if this was Perry Mason, Raymond Burr would then prove that it could not have been Hamlin. But 99 times out of a 100 you've got the doer cold.

That does not stop Hamlin though who is a politician used to spinning things and he and Govich have some history where she went gangbusters on him during the first interrogation. That gives his lawyer enough to spin things his way or attempt to.

By the way his lawyer is Jeremy Sisto who turned out to be Govich's successor. There was precedent for that as Jerry Orbach also played a defense lawyer in an episode of Law And Order and then succeeded Paul Sorvino.

This episode strained some credibility, still it's not too bad a story.
