Alternate Versions

The original airdate of this episode is the only time that the full episode has aired. All repeats of "C.O.D.," including on cable channels that air 'binge-a-thons' of the series, show Briscoe's final departure from the precinct with two edits: both the presentation of a framed caricature and the lingering shot of his nameplate are deleted. All DVD issuances of season 14 also include this edited version. See more »

Goodbye Lennie
10 December 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

After delivering an empty package in a brownstone, a mailman was killed by gunshot. Detectives realized that even the name and the address of the sender were bogus, so the killer planned the delivery man killing in every detail. The victim was a lady's man, he used to cheat on his wife faking overtime. After questioning two of his lovers, Briscoe and Green figured out the wife (Elizabeth Connors) knew all his husband's affairs and she even bought illegally a 38 caliber gun in Vermont. The gun was found in a pod inside the park where the girl works as a sweeper but ballistic later on pointed out it wasn't the murder weapon. Anyway they connected the gun to a murder happened the same week. What linked the two victims is the fact they were not so beloved by their wives for different reasons (the other wife is a gold digger); unluckily the other murder weapon was missed....

Nice episode, anyway the plot takes a back seat. What counts is the Detective Briscoe farewell: he left the series for good (the actor died shortly after, succumbing to a cancer).
