  • A case of money is thicker than blood

    6.7
    A fairly predictable story begins when an lady is found dead on the landing of her apartment block. Motive doesnt appear to be robbery or a mugging. This first act does a decent job of setting up the next 2 acts, as we meet the two possible anataganists of the crime. The middle act also explains alot of the backstory which goes to motive and we begin to appreciate the difficult relationship that these half-siblings have. The brother and sister dynamic really is the only thing that brings anything new to the table. Their conniving

    behaviour is the source of virtually all of the conflict, and together with the apparent cover up and misdirection (on Green and Briscoe) is the only source of drama in the whole 45mins.



    It really builds up the greed element of the story, and gives it a wholy different angle that it may have otherwise. Thus providing a nice edge to the the final act.



    However no matter how you dress it up, this episide is really just another filler in what was a poor season for L&O.moreless
