Excellent episode maybe one of the best from the show.
A realistic story as well. Hooperman has to keep a witness alive who is going to testify against the mob.
The problem is that this witness is also a lowlife rapist.
Hooperman is angry beyond words that he must keep this filth alive.
There's a lot of great acting from the rape victim who can't believe what's going on to Ritter displaying all the conflicting emotions of having to do his job while looking at terrible injustice that he is now a part of.
Luckily, there's a happy ending. However, it's a tough episode with a real life story.
This a pretty much solid dramatic episode again showing that Ritter was a great dramatic actor even if he rarely was called upon to do these roles.moreless
