"Lonelyville" Season 7, Episode 4

Better late than never, this recap will kick off the Law & Order: CI blog for the season. And what a good episode to start off with! So first off, what did we learn? One, earrings are the key, and two, do not try speed dating. The case started off with a tied-up blonde murderer with emerald earrings on that sent off warning signs, which then led to the arrest of writer (if he could be called that) Noah Brezner. Things were not looking good for Noah as nothing he said was being validated by Detectives Falacci and Logan. His wife did not know what was going on, his girlfriend on the side was lying against him, and Noah kept claiming he was being framed - which I believed. Turns out he was being blackmailed by his girlfriend, who was working for her lawyer/lover, who was the real con who blackmailed married men for money. It was an unhappy ending as Noah committed suicide in jail, not being able to stand the girlfriend's betrayal, while the lawyer and girlfriend headed off to jail. I was impressed with Detective Falacci through the whole episode. She reminds me of the female version of Detective Goren. How she noticed the earrings, then later asked Noah's wife about her matching bracelet, and also how Logan knew the ropes were tied in Japanese "kinabku" style. Who knows these things? Oh, and not to mention the part where she knew Greek! But did you catch the purple "Princess mug"? I bet that will be brought up again in the future. I do enjoy Logan's nonchalant attitude about everything, from him eating a sandwich during the autopsy review to his interrogation style. Favorite line? It's hard to pick tonight since Logan had some great one-liners, but I loved Falacci's response to Noah: Noah: "[referring to his book] explores the price we pay for love." Falacci: "You mean it's about married men who want to get laid." The preview for the next episode looks entertaining as we follow Goren and Eames' search for pirate treasure.
