    Unbelievable episode, literally. It goes against type for the officers to act in this way. I think we are seeing the end of the series potentially here.

    What Olivia did was totally inexcusable. She actually was willing to let a terminally ill woman go to jail for a crime she did not commit. I can understand the mother wanting to protect her daughter, it's only natural, but the daughter had no right to kill that woman just becuase she slept with the her father and made a baby. The father wasn't forced to sleep with her. The daughter is no victim.


    By doing what she did, Olivia is sending the message that it is ok to murder your father's mistress. It's going to be interesting when this comes out. I can't wait to see how Cragen reacts.

    learned:


    * aw, i felt bad for the crying baby actress


    * manual release > release


    * sex tapes...should probably just remain private...


    *now that's what i call a family favor.


    * this whole mess of a situation requires a Quantum Leap to reboot and reassess.

    This is not the first time a parent has gone to jail for a child I think there was the one where the mother (secret service agent) was in a lesbian affair with a writer. The daughter tried to kill her and she admitted it, but the father said he did it. The daughter confessed in front of Jack McCoy, and her father's lawyer, dad, mom and Abbie.
