Episode Summary

EDIT
The Lipstick Killer
AIRED:
Following the bludgeoning to death of a nurse, Hooker and co. investigate the case, the latest in a series of similar murders - a string of killings that Hooker investigated years before that has recently began again, in which the attacker sends a rose to the intended victim prior to the attack.
With the aid of a disabled veteran detective and a top psychiatrist, Hooker and the team investigate and find evidence that the murderer, always dressed as an old-fashioned nurse, may actually be a man. But the pattern of the killings suggests that they have less than 48 hours to catch the killer before he / she strikes again...moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Hooker and Romano are driving along at night, as are Corrigan and Stacy, but in the stock footage close-up shot of the in-car police radio, the light reflection indicates that the shot was taken at day.

    • When Corrigan and Stacy meet Hooker and Romano at the coffee shop, the background noise of the passing traffic jumps as the shots cut between the different close-ups of the characters (indicating that the close-ups were shot separately and edited together). Also, as in "Lady In Blue", the noise of the passing traffic seemed to have caused problems. Some of Stacy's dialogue is slightly crackly and distorted, as if the audio has been tweaked to try and raise her voice and fade out the background traffic; and several of the lines seem to be looped.
