Jeff Goldblum and Saffron Burrows catch a case involving the death of a former major league baseball star who is found in the Staten Island landfill beaten to death. He was a former athlete who obviously must have had his career end before free agency because he should have been a lot better off financially than he was.

The man was tight with a trio of friends from Catholic High School all of whom made out better than he did in the end. But they all share a terrible secret from high school. One of them in fact is a latent gay who has never acted on his orientation. That can certainly twist you inside and out.

But if you think you know how this one ends, Fuhgeddaboutit. The episode leads you in one direction and then switches gears, you won't see this one coming.
