Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of a 20 year-old college coed, Allison Reich, who is found stabbed to death in her room. She was stabbed 27 times but was not raped. She was well liked by everyone in the dorm but she may have had a cyber-stalker. Meril Grupp's stories on the Internet are gruesome and when they find Allison's panties in his room, they are sure they have their man. When they catch Allison's roommate Megan Maslin in a lie, they decide to re-question her and arrive in time to prevent her suicide, having taken an overdose of pills. In her semi-conscious state, she admits to the murder. When McCoy learns of an earlier conviction, he knows he is dealing with a very disturbed person. Written by garykmcd

A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: Shelly didn't seem to be quite on her game today.
Jack McCoy: We won, Claire, don't you get paranoid on me now.
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: Why not? It seems to be contagious. The dean told me half the campus requested single room dorms.
D.A. Adam Schiff: Why not? A little paranoia could be the key to a long life. Who ever really knows the person sharing their bedroom?

Still getting used to each other
20 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

When Benjamin Bratt joined the Law And Order cast for a few episodes in the beginning of his tenure he and Jerry Orbach took a bit of getting used to each other. Bratt was from the Organized Crime task force and a real boy scout. And Orbach had a far more laid back attitude toward life. But as things progressed they eventually clicked as a team. Especially since Bratt had computer smarts and could help a lot that way.

The two are investigating the homicide of a coed and originally go up a blind alley in pursuit of one suspect. Eventually they find the right one.

That perpetrator was represented by Sandy Duncan who I wish had made more appearances as a defense attorney. She was smart and gave Sam Waterston a real run for the money here.

Don't want to say more, but the issue here is the mental health of the perpetrator. Check this one out for Sandy Duncan and for Orbach and Bratt getting to know each other.
