Alfre Woodard reprises her St. Elsewhere role as Dr. Roxanne Turner in this episode of Homicide: Life on the Street. The homicide detectives are called in when a woman insists that her cancer-ridden brother was euthanized by Dr. Turner. In the interrogation room, Turner admits that she has frequently injected terminal patients with a lethal dose of morphine, leading to a variety of reactions from the detectives. Elsewhere, Stivers (Toni Lewis) and Falsone (Jon Seda) become personally involved in their investigation of a pizza-parlor holdup which resulted in the death of a schoolgirl. And, still hoping to spare the department from a multimillion dollar lawsuit, Kellerman (Reed Diamond) secretly tapes Judge Gibbons (Rick Warner) while they discuss Gibbons' ruling in the Luther Mahoney wrongful-death case.
