Trivia

Writing a illegitimate prescription with either a stolen prescription pad, or attempting to forge a prescription pad of your own, or altering the dosage, drug strength, drug quantity, refill quantity or dispense date of a legitimately written prescription in New York state is forgery in the second degree, a class D felony which can carry a prison sentence of 1 1/3 to 7 years. If you successfully pass the forged prescription and the pharmacy fills it and the prescription was for a controlled substance, but it is later discovered that you used a forged prescription you will face an additional charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, also a class D felony. However if you intended to sell the controlled substance you obtained with the forged prescription you could face a charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony with a sentence of 3 to 5 years with no prior record and a maximum sentence of 25 years if you have priors.

Goofs

While kneeling over the body, Goren states that the doctor was shot in the hand. He then lifts the doctors arm and we see a bullet hole in his palm. But then Goren turns the doctors hand over and there is no corresponding hole in the back of the hand. See more »

Robert Goren: There is one way we can break into their world.
Danny Ross: Bring Tommy and Malia in together, break them apart.

The silent world
18 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This was a fascinating episode, a look into the silent world of the deaf. The victim here is a doctor who specializes in doing implants that will enable some deaf to hear.

There is a real connection here with me because we've heard it mentioned that DNA alteration is in the future. That those of us who are LGBT can be 'fixed'. Since a whole culture is affected that raises considerable issues. I kind of understand where some of these people are coming from.

This episode features some fine performances from Bill O'Brien as a police detective who interprets in sign for Chris Noth and Julianne Nicholson and from deaf mute actor Garrett Zuercher who takes those issues quite seriously.
