The shooting death of a man in his driveway is connected to the unsolved 1992 murder of a Democratic campaign worker whose lifeless body was thrown into a nearby river on election night. The investigation centers on the relationship the dead woman had with a present-day congressman. Apparently, the victim in the current homicide probed into the earlier slaying and discovered damning new evidence. Elsewhere, Lilly spies Kite flirting with a new ADA and gets jealous.

Guest CastEdit



  • This episode is loosely based on the 2001 death of Chandra Levy.
  • The Fleetwood Mac song "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" heard at the campaign headquarters in 1992 was in fact the official song for the Clinton-Gore campaign.
  • The real murderer is not arrested, which could be why there is no ending shot of the case box being put away and having "Closed" written on it.


  • Fleetwood Mac "Don't Stop"
  • The Cranberries "Dreams"
  • Gin Blossoms "Hey Jealousy"
  • 4 Non Blondes "What's Up"
  • Chris Isaak "Can't Do a Thing (To Stop Me)"
  • Closing Song: Duran Duran "Ordinary World"
