Storyline

Generally hated newspaper columnist Joey Conway, whose witty but often dubious criticism wrecked many careers, is murdered. Although lieutenant Gene Hunt hated Conway for adding lies to his truly abusive record, he agrees with the commissioner to handle the case by the book, for fear of his press colleagues. Sam however completely looses his cool when he recognizes from the future gallery owner Tony Crane, who will raise professionally and continue killing flippant young female artists, so Sam wants to save Tony's present protégée by all means, despite herself and the whole precinct, never mind a restraining order and ruined restaurant owner Demetri Pantos's macho confession.

Trivia

Early in the show they reference Kojak (1973), a popular cop show from 1973. Ironically Harvey Keitel played an armored car robber in the series' debut. See more »

Goofs

Early in the episode Chief Harry Woolf pulls a sucker out of the mouth of Det Chris Skelton and comments that he, "Rues the day Kojak went on the air." Later on in the episode, Skelton states for the record that it's October 6, 1973. Kojak didn't debut until Oct 24, 1973. And the suckers didn't start until well into the season, when he tries to quit smoking. See more »
