  • The second season begins with a trial on the murder of Angelo Marino and John'z relationship with Robin ending.

    8.1
    The second season starts with scenes from last season with Janice blowing away Angelo Marino. Marino was a mob boss with dirty cops on his payroll. We see Janice and John get close. Amy Brennerman and Caruso are great here I must admit. It’s sad for Caruso that he chose to leave the series a few episodes later. John doesn’t want to take advantage of Janice sexually. He testifies under a grand jury that he didn’t think the shooting on Marino was premeditated. Meanwhile, Sipowicz looks into the case involving a battered wife. This is a decent episode to show the growth of these characters especially Caruso’s character. At one point, his character is approached to make a big tv deal for dirt on Janice and Marino but he refuses. Later, a wise guy in a bar tries to fight John but that doesn’t go well then Robin his girl breaks up with him, yet he takes it all in stride.

    We also see the beginnings of the love between Silvia and Sipowicz.



    This is a very interesting start to the second season.moreless
