"It truly is my favorite episode," Lehman tells TVGuide.com. "It's our very first episode where the victim is killed intentionally. I really thought that was a brave and interesting twist. [It works] in the question of whether this crime is justifiable, [while] still playing upon people's compassion and pathos for the killer and less for the victim this time."

Bancroft's character is "not an upstanding dude," according to Lehman. But does he really deserve to die?
