Storyline

Charlie Crews becomes the prime suspect in the murder of retired police Sgt. Carl Ames, the lead investigator in the case for which Charlie was wrongly convicted of murder. He had been following Ames and had seen him talking with a white-haired man who he subsequently learns is Dani Reese's father. He is warned by his former lawyer Constance Griffiths that the District Attorney's office is out to get him for Ames' murder and he is surprised to learn the identity of a newly appointed assistant DA in the case. Charlie and Dani investigate the death of a man who apparently lived a double life. They also realize that his bizarre death wasn't an accident. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Crews and Reese look at the 2 Drivers Licenses of the victim, the line "Motion picture use only" appears on the bottom of each. See more »

Goofs

Charlie tells Dani, after some frustrated prying from her, that the "Chinese symbol for war is two women under one roof". Although this is sometimes stated as Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, and sometimes as meaning "trouble" instead of "war", it is an urban legend. See more »

Quotes

Dani Reese: [repeating suspect's words] "He was not looking for the person *not* obeying the law"? "He was looking for the person *not* not obeying the law"? That kind of talk remind you of anyone?

I am "not - not" giving this episode a 10
6 August 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Ravich (as writer not director) out-did himself here.

I am binge-watching this series because (a) I missed it when released and (b) it is comfy as old socks.

But every now and then I come across writing that is as good as anything you might see from an A-List hit show.

And this episode is an example. The bigamist who is "not not" looking for someone breaking the law is stunningly clever. Combined with the comfortable repartee between the two stars, we have a winner.

And since Ravich did double-duty as both writer and director, I have noticed (not just in this episode but in several) that he will do fancy cutting to emphasize particular clever bits of dialog. It is more obvious here because the theme of bigamy gives him a wider license.

Fun for all.
