Did You Know?


A Maltese Cross is a cross with arms of equal length that broaden from the center and have their ends indented in a shallow V-shape. This type of cross is often used as the insignia for fire departments. See more »


When Logan is faking the interrogation of Charlie Hugo, he mentions that he and Duffy had reservations on Cape Cod "...in Massachusetts, the only state that allows gay marriage." This has two problems; at the time the episode is set, Massachusetts law only extended same-sex marriage to residents of Massachusetts or Rhode Island or to couples who declare an intent to take up permanent residence in Massachusetts; even if the situation had been as it was presented, Duffy was still legally married to his wife and bigamy laws would thus prevent his marrying anyone else even if the other conditions of Massachusetts law were met. However, Keel was apparently so upset by this "revelation" that he forgot about those points (assuming, of course, that he would have known about them in the first place - not unreasonable considering the publicity passage of the law received).

Logan and Wheeler...
25 August 2018 | by difollacSee all my reviews

I've come to appreciate the alternating partners situation that evolved after D'Onfrio had a meltdown over the workload. Goren and Eames will always be the heart of the show but it's refreshing to see other duos break up the monotony. Logan is a wonderful character and Noth is fantastic in the part. He shines in this episode but I don't feel Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) gets the credit she deserves for her role in the series. She is so unique and has such a refreshing beauty and way about her. I love her restrained sarcasm. She and Noth have great chemistry and this episode is a perfect example. I wish she had stayed on longer.
