  • This is what makes the show special.

    There's very little detective work in this episode, or rather, it's dealt with very quickly. The actual themes concern the private life of Cagney and Lacey. Christine's difficulty with men who can't accept her job gives her an extra dimension. There are even some hints at the alcohol problem she will develop later on. (Was that planned?) Mary Beth's story might be predictable, Tyne Daly's performance in the final scenes makes it work. The unique qualities of this show at their best.
