So he tries to get Theo's final test pulled up. Anyway, it gave Fancy an extra air of authority, didn't it? He has a new credit Executive Consultant , but this episode is very Milch-like to me. A new assistant district attorney arrives to handle the case and prompts concerns over her by-the-book approach. Diane realizes that he won't help Danny, but that she may have a shot at him. Derrick eventually folds under Baldwin's impressive stance, reminders that he'll feel guilt the rest of his life over the deaths, and the news that if he doesn't help out he's going to end up going down for all three murders alone.
Officer Shannon to the rescue: He brings in a run-of-the-mill crack head Corey who botched his first robbery. She meets him and finds that he's the same sleazy jerk she knew and hated before. For a change, our heroes get absolutely no where on canvas and come up short with a supposed witness: a poor dumpster diver who has fried every brain cell except the one that tells him what time the Zips boys take out the trash in the morning. The three women forge an unusual bond in the course of the evening, which makes it all the more painful when the witness disappears once again before testifying. Diane asks Danny about his relationship with Mary; but he expresses that he still has an interest in her.

Meanwhile, Sorenson tries to ease the awkwardness with Andy over his relationship with Diane, who comes to a difficult decision of her own that devastates Danny. My main thought is that this is not a great way to start off the new season. Add to that the fact that these two have a chemistry rating somewhere in the negative numbers, and you've got a painful thing to watch. Though, really, if you were going to run from either of those guys--which would seem ill-advised--wouldn't you run from the older one? I can't wait to hear what Andy will say about her.

Meanwhile, Sorenson must make some important decisions in his personal life, which is bad news for Mary Franco and maybe good news for Diane. She's heard that he's not helping Don. And yeah, that'd all happen in the same precinct and on the same day. He even puts himself in jeopardy when his attempt to protect her from a rude patron leads to a fight. She says he didn't misread signals, but that under the circumstances, it's best left platonic.
The series initially caused controversy with its frank language, realistic violence and nudity, but it became a critical darling, garnering 27 Emmy nominations in its first year alone. Dinner time and Diane gets a knock on the door. Maybe it'll seem different on down the road as we see shows where his involvement was even smaller. Just a few words about the triple-murder story.

He's bouncing off the walls, talking really fast, desperate to get out, trying anything to make them let him go. Denby is so incredibly sickening that it's hard not to like seeing him all the time. Finally, he just takes Theo down to the office and asks in person if they could squeeze him in for the test. In a lot of ways, I thought it made sense to put them together.
