Twisted values
8 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The family annihilation of an auditor in the New York City Comptroller's office made to look like a murder/suicide gets the attention of the Major Case Squad in this episode. In fact this was a carefully planned hit done over several weeks in not only the physical murder itself, but careful assassination of the victim's character to show him capable of such an act so it would not be questioned. Or so the planners thought it would not be questioned.

The center of it all is Viola Davis who is a former NYPD officer who now works as school security. Working for the city full time and collecting a pension is called double dipping and against the law. Kathryn Erbe mentions her father got caught at it and had to return monies to the city.

In fact there are several doing it and she's the ringleader. Davis has also found other ways to make her school security job pay quite lucratively.

The women who did this is also a loving mom who is supporting two daughters and her own mother as a single mom. All this is to insure a good life for her kids. What a twisted sense of values she has.

This episode should be seen for the elaborate sting that Goren and Eames use to get Davis and for Davis's own performance.
