Did You Know?


The prison that the team goes to visit Speck at is actually the former West Virginia State penitentiary in Moundsville. It started life as a Civil War armory and afterwards was converted to a prison. You can still visit, at the east end of the complex, the hole that the prisoners would drop through as they were being executed. These were open to the public until well into the 1930's. See more »


In a scene supposedly set in Joliet, Illinois, mountains are clearly visible in the distance. See more »


[first lines]
Holden Ford: [holding Richard Speck newspaper clippings] It's like meeting a movie star.
Bill Tench: Could be as anti-climactic.
Holden Ford: "Crime of the Century."
Bill Tench: Until Charles Whitman two weeks later...
Holden Ford: I remember staring at this wanted poster of him, trying to figure out if I saw him on the street, would I know he was insane?
Bill Tench: You clip all these?
Holden Ford: Everything I could get my hands on. Even went to my neighbors who subscribed to newspapers outside of Milwaukee.
Bill Tench: Holden and his first criminal crush!

Once again, the psycho at the start. He will do something horrendous soon. This episode has several things going on. Holden is getting in deeper and deeper every moment. He has become a liar and a liability. He sees Debbie and goes to his apartment. Things are tense. While there, the wife of the foot-tickling principal shows up. He has been fired, probably because of Holden's actions. Of course, he could've stopped the tickling if he cared about his future. Now we get to the most serious issue. The redacting of the first few minutes of the Richard Speck interview. Speck has filed a complaint and they need to turn in all their documentation. They lie about the tape and turn in the altered transcript. But Gregg, the innnocent, the non-team player has other plans. Wendy is furious and they become four separated partners. Trust disappears quickly.
