Quotes

Alexandra Shabtai: You don't actually think I had something to do with Eliza's murder?
Detective Ed Green: You deal the same kind of drug that was found in her system. And a few hours before she was killed, you two were "talking" about money.
Detective Lennie Briscoe: In our neck of the woods, that adds up to a drug deal gone bad.
Alexandra Shabtai: Ugh... that is just insane.
Detective Lennie Briscoe: Uh... if I were you, that defense never works.

If it was me, I would probably do the same thing.

Two girls were talking about the need of a contract behind every marriage when between two cars they noticed a classy girl lying on the ground with severe bruises on her thigh. She was strangled to death but the road was not the crime scene, the murder took place somewhere else. She was high the night she was murdered, according to the taxi driver and to a local bodega clerk, and she had a sex & drug party together with other peers (she was called the princess Xena by the party goers, none of them knew her real name). The victim was actually a doctor who set up a scam with a local dealer (David Deblinger) and a pharmacist: she prescribed a lot of pills called oxycodone, used for back pain but with the same effect of cocaine together with booze. After the local dealer was locked up, he began to cut deals with prosecutors involving his father. Then the "Order" part takes over with several plea bargains...

An episode I find pretty boring. Slow pace, all the actors don't seem to be comfortable. Maybe the worst episode in the twelfth series, but real lawyers might like it.
