Trivia

The title, -30-, is an old reporters' shorthand which means end of story. It is also the title of a 1959 'Jack Webb' movie about a day in the life of a Los Angeles newspaper. It is always written with hyphens fore and aft. Its origin has been attributed to the early days of telegraphy, when XXX (which is 30 in Roman numerals) signified "end of message." Whatever its origin, the use was established around the time of the Civil War. Since it was originally intended as an instruction to typesetters, its appearance has declined since the advent of computerized typesetting. See more »

Goofs

The hazmat captain tells Ross and Wheeler that the radiation levels in the restaurant are too high for them to go inside. Yet as he stated earlier polonium is an alpha decay particle, meaning that compared to other types of radiation, like beta and gamma rays, its energy emissions are much weaker. Whereas gamma particles can only be stopped by really dense material like lead, and beta particles can be stopped by moderately dense materials like a piece of plastic several inches thick, alpha particles can be stopped by a single layer of skin. So the only way it's harmful is if it is ingested or it gets inside the bloodstream, as long as the detectives wore gloves they'd be fine, the only danger would be getting polonium inside of an open wound, but a normal pair of latex gloves would be more than sufficient protection.

Are you a Jew-first and cop-second?
27 September 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A family man reporter (Lee Tergesen) had a bad cough and he figured out he could be poisoned. A radiation poisoning like the one caused Litvinenko's death: polonium. But he was not the target, the real one was a fellow international female reporter whom he had an affair with. It's a spy story, with reference to Chechnya, Mossad and other topics that let this episode looks like a 007 movie. NYPD is in competition with FBI and it's not easy to find the real perpetrator. Other dead bodies and contaminated ones are found and the case is too hard to be solved.

Logan owes something to the reporter, because he helped him a long time before when the detective took a swing to a counselor outside the courtroom, losing his job as a result. So he stayed before him in his deathbed, trying to figure out something more about this complex case.
