A poet (Will Chase), who owned a minor magazine, made a poetry reading
in an open bar. Shortly before a backer turned up in his office,
threatening to cut money out: the magazine survived only on donation
made by rich people. The same night, his secretary (as well as his
lover) was found dead in the alley near the office. After questioning
some suspects, Nichols and Wheeler figured out the poet used to pimp
his employee out in order to draw the capital he need. But the murder
is not related to money.
Nichols plays the piano to impress and to let the perp talk, saying he had better become a musician rather than a cop. Anyway at the end he shows off unexpected lectured and poetry skills.
I'm sorry that Criminal Intent reached the end of its run before Jeff
Goldblum and his character of Detective Zach Nichols. In his own way,
the son of a psychiatrist with that kind of training and background he
was as quirky as Vincent D'Onofrio in his own way.
Two murders occur in this episode. The first was of Christina Brucato girl friend and girl Friday of Will Chase a poet. Now that's usually not a gig that pays much money unless you get a patron. Chase publishes a poetry anthology magazine and it's described as the kind of a publication that people buy for their coffee tables so they appear intellectual. Like the bards of old Chase needs wealthy patrons and he's not picky about what means he uses to get patrons.
But then he winds up murdered and Goldblum and Julianne Nicholson have to go in a whole different direction.
All I'll say is that the solution lies in Chase's past and a past crime never really dealt with.
