Storyline

Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Donny Gibson, who was found dead in a parking lot. Gibson installed sound systems in bars and clubs and was out with $4000 in cash in his pocket looking to buy some high end speakers. The police know that that Sean Russo, the son of an imprisoned mob boss, met him that night though he denies it. When Jack McCoy concludes that the young Russo is likely now the head of the Russo crime family, he has his bail raised to $10 million. When the DA's office learns there's a connection between Gibson and a nightclub owner putting up some of the bail, McCoy goes after the night club owners, Tom Wilder and Jeff Stahl who told Russo that Gibson was pressing for the payment of outstanding bills for the sound system he installed. He also threatened to go to the FBI to let them know Russo was an investor in their club. McCoy biggest problem in the case however is a federal prosecutor who also wants to go after Russo.

Goofs

When Detective Curtis takes the envelope from the victim's wife in the park, he does not wear gloves or hold the envelope in such a way as to not get his prints on it. He should have held it the way Detective Briscoe held the wallet, along the edges without his fingertips making direct contact with the flat side of the envelope, where they would dust for prints.

Aren't we on the same team?
8 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The homicide in this particular Law And Order story involves a sound engineer who is found dead in the back of his panel truck. The leads that Jerry Orbach and Benjamin Bratt follow lead to a pair of nightclub owners for whom this guy did some work. Mark-Linn Baker and Joe Piscopo are a couple of guys in well over their heads going in business with Jeremy Davidson the son of a Mafia kingpin currently in for a long stretch. Davidson's character is based on John Gotti, Jr.. and Davidson is whom the investigation takes us.

Davidson is a hateful punk and he's indicted, but after that the Feds take a keen interest. In a previous episode US Attorney John Driver got into a turf war with Sam Waterston. Instead of justice which is a side benefit, Driver wants a little payback.

Hasn't anyone told them they're on the same side?
