  • L&O hits all the high marks - Again!

    9.2
    What makes this episode so memorable is the contradictions it sets up, which lead to its poignant, ironic ending, and yet another deeply moral point. The prostitute's murder is hardly worth investigating, until the chief suspect is a respected plastic surgeon. His wife's reaction is at first confusing to the detectives -- denial followed by "understanding\". Only later does she reveal the true depths of her emotions and what she\'s done to vent her frustrations.



    Then, in the final moments, when we learn the truth, we realize that although the \"right\" person will go to jail for the murder, the wrong person still won\'t face true justice. The bitter brutality of this morality play leaves us with no easy answers -- but we get there honestly and relentlessly -- typical for the series. But also the reason why Law & Order's reruns will be running for decades.moreless
