Greevy and Logan investigate the murder of a man who was shot and killed - including several bullets to the groin area. The dead man is Jose Urbano, a known drug dealer but Greevy is certain the crime is personal and not just a drug deal or some other altercation gone bad. Everyone in the close knit community has clammed up and they face downright hostility from the local parish priest, Father Torres. Ballistics points them to Anna Rivers who owned the gun used to kill Urbano but she claims it was stolen some weeks before. When they learn her granddaughter Lucy was recently raped, they arrest the girl's boyfriend Nicky Guzman. Executive ADA Stone thinks it's pretty straightforward but a high profile Texas lawyer, Chet Burton, is hired to defend Guzman and he's not open to compromise. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Based on the Daingerfield church shooting which was a mass murder that occurred at the First Baptist Church in Daingerfield, Texas, United States on June 22, 1980. Alvin Lee King III, a former high school teacher, armed with a scoped, semi-automatic XM16E1-type derivative, an M1 carbine, and two revolvers, killed five people and wounded 10 others, after members of the church had declined his request to appear as character witnesses in a trial in which he was charged with raping his daughter. King was arrested after shooting himself and charged with five counts of murder and ten counts of attempted murder, but committed suicide in his prison cell on January 19, 1982, before he could be convicted.

Back in Texas they would have given him a medal
29 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

At a church carnival a drug dealer with weapon still in his waistband is shot twice, once in the back and the second time in the crotch. Rule of thumb according to George Dzundza when it's below decks it's always personal.

When all is said and done Enrique Munoz is arrested because the deceased raped and beat up his girlfriend. No police report filed on that but Dzundza and Chris Noth find her in the hospital.

Usually Shambala Green doesn't step aside for any man especially white men. But as Munoz's attorney she does step aside for flamboyant Percy Foreman like Texas lawyer J.D. Cannon making his farewell appearance. He's here partly for publicity and partly to prove to himself that on certain matters New Yorkers aren't all that different from Texans.

Though he's only in the last third of the episode, Cannon is quite unforgettable and his dialog with Judge Stephen Elliott and Michael Moriarty as prosecutor is classic.
