    I was completely thrown by this episode for 2 reasons: 1) All the previews told us to watch for the famous L&O "twist" at the end and 2) This series virtually never depicts a black person in a negative way, much less a murderer. I thought the "twist" was that Brass's killer was going to be Caleb's Jewish lawyer. After all, a couple of seasons ago, a black rapper was gunned down in front of a courthouse and the murderer turned out to be a Jewish diamond merchant. But no, for once L&O played it straight (unlike when they had OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson both played by white actors). THAT was the twist!
