Episode Summary

EDIT
Across the Line
AIRED:

During a long stakeout of an anticipated armed robbery, an officer leaves his post at the probable getaway location without permission to buy a beer, just as the robbery is taking place. He returns just in time to confront what he thinks is the speeding getaway vehicle trying to run him down, and shoots the driver square in the forehead. However, since he was inexcusably out of radio contact, he failed to hear the announcement that the driver is actually a woman who has been taken hostage during the robbery, making it appear to be a clear cut case of excessive force and possibly murder. The officer turns to a skeptical Quincy to use his forensic skills to defend him at the trial board and prove that the shooting was justified.

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Beside this, it seems a little odd, that Sam doesn't know Quincy's birthdate, as he knew it in "Scream to the Skies".

      • Possible goof: In this episode, Sam remarks that Quincy's birthday might be soon. Quincy corrects him as he says, that he had his birthday already. Requiring that episodes take place at least around the date they air, it is intended his birthday is in early December or in November, as this episode aired on December 8th. However, Quincy's birthday is celebrated in season 6s "Scream to the Skies", which aired on February 11th. However, we know that episodes of the show at least not always take place around the date they air, as season 7s "To Clear the Air" takes place in the summer, although it aired in February, so this might not be a goof at all.
