  • Why?

    8.5
    Why couldn't they have brought Angie Harmon back? She was the best ADA Law?der ever had... Also, why use the Presidential Recount, when from the same year they could have used the Senate election in Missouri where a dead man won. Still excellent thinking however.
  • A senator is being tried for a murder.

    9.0
    When the homicide detectives take over a case of a car accident where there is a shot woman found behind a steering wheel, they are trying to discover some kid of motive. The fact is the murder was a blunder - a reporter was to be killed instead and there is, on the other hand, a bunch of motives here. One that roves to be vital is an article about a tempering with ballots during senatorial elections. A senator becomes target and as a head of a conspiracy she is charged with the murder. After overwhelming several obstacles, the senator is convicted with the help of the reported who finally discloses the identity if her source.

    An interesting plot and story, sorry it had to be summed up in one episode, I think two episodes would have been just fine to develop the story and utilize such an interesting topic.moreless

    • Nora Lewin: Just speak softly and carry a big subpoena.
      Lewin makes a word play on a proverb used by Teddy Roosevelt, "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." While Roosevelt attributed it as West African, no proof of this has been found.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the controversial presidential election and subsequent recount in 2000.

    • Kate Pierce: I covered the Taliban in Afghanistan - - without a veil.

      The Taliban were a militant Islamic regime that seized power in Afghanistan in 1996. They were notorious for supporting Al Qaeda and for their mistreatment of women. Women were forbidden to work, attend school, speak in public or leave their homes without wearing a burqua (head-to-toe veil).

    • The title "Deep Vote" is a nod to the infamous "Deep Throat"---Woodward and Bernstein's 'deep cover' confidential source during the Watergate scandal (1972-1974), later revealed to be W. Mark Felt, the number two man at the FBI during that time.
