  • Very weak Law & Order

    It is obvious who the killer is half way into the episode based on two things. The spent shells at the crime scene and the wildly off target shooting if it had been either of the two primary (and up to the very last minutes only suspects) suspects. The episode may have worked if not for the suspect's line of work.
  • Sloppily written

    Every once in a while, _Law and Order_ presents an episode where the plot depends on the police and prosecutors being a lot slower on the uptake than the average viewer. This is one of those episodes. Famous mystery writer P.K. Todd is shot and her agent killed by a mysterious assailant. When the police settle on their prime suspect, his lawyer comes up with an unusual defense. Unfortunately, the identity of the character with whom P.K. Todd is having an affair is obvious to the viewer a long time before the police and D.A.'s figure it out, as is the identity of the killer. Note that they never quite explain how the killer got access to the murder weapon.
