The episode also follows up on Catherine's unjustified shooting of the pilot's serial killer with Schaeffer lying on her behalf despite mounting a defense of "the truth" earlier in the episode. But he's now beginning to fall under her spell with regards to the possibility that her stepfather is a serial killer, so presumably that's why he changed his mind. Oh, and Schaeffer's long-suffering wife (Anne Dudek) revealed she's pregnant.
This week's serial killer story carries over to next week.
Performances: Sometimes Sevigny seems well-cast as a crazy-obsessive detective; other times she just sounds like a petulant brat (and too much like her "Big Love" character), especially when interacting with her co-worker (Omid Abtahi).
Notable guest star: Comedy series mainstay Kyle Bornheimer ("Family Tools," "Perfect Couples," "Worst Week") appeared as "cheese dad," a married guy Catherine meets at a kids arcade and offers to have a one-night stand with. She orders him to her Mt. Washington condo and though there are a lot of warning signs that she's crazy -- she stalks him from the hallway, her mail is all over the floor, she gets obsessed by a bouncy ball that falls out of his pocket -- he stays long enough to have sex with her. It's Bornheimer's third stint in a Pittsburgh-set show following "Romantically Challenged" and the movie "She's Out of My League." (If "cheese dad" turns out to be a serial killer, I'm done with this show, Pittsburgh angle or not.)
Recognizable locations: Definitely saw the inside of the Allegheny County Courthouse. 31st Street Bridge (fantastic shot under the bridge looking toward Downtown). An opening scene may have been the 31st Street Pub. A murder victim was found in an alley Downtown, possibly the one between Liberty and Penn.
