  • Briscoe and Curtis don't believe a girl complaining about a stalker - and she ends up dead...

    8.0
    This is a good episode for all concerned. An injured girl is found at the bottom of the stairs - and she later tells Briscoe and Curtis that she's being stalked by some nut. The cops look at her story but start to believe she's making the attack up to support her claims of being victimised. However, the girl is found murdered shortly afterwards. This leads Lenny to perjure himself in order to convict the nut who was after the girl. McCoy supports him in his endeavours while Curtis/Ross look on disapprovingly. This story shows the problems about being honest and maybe letting a killer go free or being dishonest and convicting a person for a crime. Do you look at the bigger picture (ie someone is dead) or the smaller picture (ie you should try to be honest despite the outcome). Again, Law and Order displays great storyline telling ability showing both sides of the plot.moreless
