  • One of the best episodes of Law & Order... Great acting and storyline, keeps you glued to your seat...

    This is one of my favorite L&O episodes. I just love watching Abbie Carmichael - she's definitely the strongest character they had in the role of the female A.D.A. Her acting is fabulous, it feels like she's geniunely passionate about getting the guy convicted and overcome with all the obstacles that stand in the way. I also love the plot twists - they really keep you guessing! And Birkstrom is a true creepy, one of the creepiest killers they ever had on the show. Fine acting there as well. The scene between Carmichael and McCoy at the end ("I'm just taking a page from the Jack McCoy playbook"...) was one of the highlights of this episode and L&O's run overall. Season 9 was where it was at. I wish more of the later episodes could have been this well done.
