Background information and notes Edit

  • One of the cases in this episode is based on the Lorena Bobbitt case. Lorena Bobbitt cut off her husband John Wayne Bobbitt's penis with a knife. She claimed that John Wayne was raping her in an abusive relationship. It sparked international news. (Source: John and Lorena Bobbitt at Wikipedia)
  • Many of the loose ends in this episode are explained in the Law & Order SVU episode Entitled, which is continued in the Law & Order episode with the same name.
  • It's possible one of the cases here is inspired by the Son of Sam. The killings of the young people in cars by a nerdy man is similar to the case where a nerdy awkard man named David Berkowitz shot teenagers to death in cars. He was arrested by Detective Bill Clark, who would later write for the series NYPD Blue
