The detectives visit the hair salon the victim previously visited where she got extensions. The salon owner says he doesn't know who she is because she was a walk-in who got her extensions that day. It's not possible to walk in to a high end salon and get extensions. You first have to visit to get your hair matched for the right color, have them order the extensions, and then come back a few days later to have them placed. See more »

A burned body and a U.S. Senator
12 April 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In this last season of Law And Order the writers came up with one of the strangest episodes ever done. The investigation leads from a burned body in a park to the re-election campaign of a U.S. Senator who happens to reside in my old stamping grounds of Brooklyn. I hope no one thinks that this is reflective of the senior Senator from New York Chuck Schumer who was senior senator then and still is.

The deceased is a model and if you think you know where this is going believe me you don't. The focus is first on her estranged brother who crashed a party she was attending at Gracie Mansion and later broke security at Kennedy Airport chasing the victim down all caught on video.

The brother is Ben Schnetzler and he's a person with lots of issues. Captured in the Gracie Mansion pictures is U.S. Senator Tony Roberts. Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson start fishing into his election campaign. Wife Kathy Baker and girl Friday Lily Rabe enter the picture also.

We don't learn right up until the end who the murderer is. We do learn right before that there's a juicy tabloid scandal revealed. But I guarantee it won't be what you think.

This one will keep you glued to the chair.
