    A female naval officer gets murdered at a naval base. Mac and Harm are assigned to take on the case. A suspected murderer with a drinking problem is placed on the spotlight. Meanwhile, Budd is assigned to defend a navy SEAL commander of defrauding the US government. Two cases are investigated in this episode. Each case is given the appropriate screen time. It's a great episode. It's classic JAG. Adam Baldwin makes a striking guest appearance in this show. His brief role shines. This is well written, it's really entertaining. I had a good time watching it. It's a great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Bud entered the SEAL's "Kill House" he was surprised by the fact that the SEALs used live ammo. It is not uncommon for units (especially Special Operations) to use live ammo for training purposes. It is often said that Special Forces go through more live ammo in a week than a regular unit would go through in a year.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Lt. Cmdr. Turner refers to "the thousands of Iraqi Kurds gassed by Saddam Hussein." This happened in 1989 in the northern Iraqi village of Halabja. The chemicals used were anthrax, sarin and VX nerve gas, among others. Years later, the people of Halabja are still experiencing high rates of cancer, birth defects and other health problems.

    • The Navy SEAL Commander mentions the "Moscow theatre attack." This happened at the Dubrovka Theatre during the musical "Nord-Ost." The theatre was taken hostage by Chechen terrorists armed with heavy explosives and demanding the withdrawal of Russian troops from Chechnya. The Russian authorities pumped an aerosolized form of fentanyl (a narcotic) into the theatre to render the terrorists unconscious. None of the Chechen rebels survived. Unfortunately, many of the hostages were also killed in the process and the authorities refused to tell doctors what substance was used so the doctors didn't know what antidote to give victims.

    • Mac says the police overlooked other suspects and Harm sarcastically asks about "the man on the grassy knoll." This is a reference to the JFK assassination theorists who believe that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone and that there was another shooter on a grassy knoll nearby.
