Main CastEdit

Guest CastEdit



  • Apparently based on the case of Dr. Sam Sheppard, who was convicted in 1954 of the murder of his pregnant wife Marilyn Reese Sheppard before his conviction was overturned and declared a miscarriage of justice nearly a decade later. Many believe his story also inspired the classic TV series The Fugitive, as well as the movie of the same name, though this has always been denied by their creators.
  • As mentioned in the episode, "Schadenfreude" means pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.
  • The song "Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran was also featured in the season 5 episode Justice.

  • Duran Duran "Save A Prayer"
  • Manhattan Production Music "Still In Pain"
