A family of shrinks

The homicide that Briscoe and Green catch in this Law And Order story is that of the daughter-in-law of a prominent pop psychologist author Jon Cypher. Only it's starting to look like a suicide the more the investigation proceeds.

That does not deter Sam Waterston from pursuing this case the more they find out how devious and manipulative Cypher is. It also looks like Cypher even arranged the marriage of the deceased to Richard Joseph Paul Cypher's son. There's also a daughter Lisa Emery who is also in the field.

Cypher is not a lovable figure. He's trying to sell the idea via his books and personal appearances that wives must be at all times submissive to their husbands. That's going to win him fans in many places. But Bible thumpers just love this guy.

Still as bad as he is, I'm not sure the episode made the case that this man is guilty of anything.
