Episode Summary

EDIT
Briscoe and Logan bet that the killing of a star athlete's father is linked to gambling debts and threats to the baseball player's family, but it turns out the son's alibi doesn't hold up and he ends up under suspicion himself.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • During Stone's interrogation of Joey Lang, the African-American Lang frequently refers to Stone as 'Casper'. This is a reference to Casper the Friendly Ghost of short cartoons, who was a friendly, white floating ghost with no legs.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the James Jordan murder. James, the father of basketball superstar Michael Jordan, was shot in July of 1993 by teens Larry Martin Demery and Daniel Andre Green. The media initially tried to link James' death to Michael Jordan's alleged gambling problems, but James Jordan had been in the wrong place at the wrong time. His killers were both sentenced to life in prison.
