Episode Summary

Cruel and Unusual
A secretary discovers evidence of her boss' drug smuggling operation. She is murdered before the evidence can reach the police. Her widower is then set up as the killer. Soon the husband is contacted by a mysterious Mr. Chapel, who promises that the real culprit will be brought to justice. Chapel collects the favour of a former client, KC, who works at the DA's office, in order to get more information on the lawyer who helped to set the real villain free. Chapel proceeds to threaten the lawyer, using an explosive car, a mirror and two keys. KC is then set up as a hooker and sent to the drug smuggler. Chapel takes pictures of them, and then dumps a dead hooker in the drug smuggler´s bath tub. He then uses the old divide and conquer technique to really get things going.moreless

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • KC´s father was involved in her favor. He now lives in Arizona. Other facts revealed about KC: she´s sort of involved with a man, and she has dropped out of law school several times. Also, she studied in Texas, where she learned how to jump out of cars to avoid groping football playing boys.

      • The coroner´s favor isn´t mentioned, but he seems to be very cooperative.

      • Chapel's phone number is 555-0132.

      • Chapel's phone number is 555-0132.

      • Posing as Edward Pike, Mr. Chapel moves $5 million via phone, but he fails to specify where the money should be transferred. Later on, Mr. Chapel has access to the money, or is it perhaps another $5 million?

    • QUOTES (3)

      • KC: What's wrong with you?
        Chapel: Plenty. We live in a world, you and I, where people can kill someone and get a book deal out of it because they hire the right lawyer, or they get an acting teacher who teaches them how to cry on camera.
        KC: You think you can change all that?
        Chapel: Well, maybe not, but I don't have to tolerate it.

      • Chapel: If you try that again, I'll break every bone in your body, one per second. That's 206 seconds, maybe seven, give or take a bone.

      • Schiller: Are you out of your freakin' mind?
        Chapel: Anything´s possible.
