YOU ALWAYS HURT THE ONE YOU LOVE -- Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) immediately suspect the attorney/wife (guest star Susan Floyd) of a prominent assistant district attorney (guest star David Marshall Grant) when he confronts and kills a hitman hired to kill him in his home after a series of death threats. But while the cops of the Major Case squad can track her to a convict whose case was being prosecuted by the A.D.A. -- and rumors of her romantic affairs abound -- cracks soon appear in the seemingly airtight case against her.
