A Black woman slices the face of another Black woman. It takes 30 scars to fix and the victim will have that slash for the rest of her life. The Marshals go to Upstate NY to solve this one.
This has a scene similar to one in the film "About Schmidt." Remember when Jack Nicholson's character remembers his birth home and it's now a tire store? Well, one officer remembers his early time in Utica. They show a photo of his uncle who also worked in law enforcement, and he had a deep, juicy, Kirk Douglas-like butt chin. If you love the saucy, burrough-oriented flavor of this show, you may miss it as the LatinA officers from other seasons aren't here. Still, if you like those "Sopranos"-type East Coast accents, you'll hear a lot of it here.
On the one hand, this was a blackchick-on-blackchick crime. How could a sistagurl do that to one of her own!? However, in the course of this episode, two other Black women try to hide/protect the perpetrator fiercely. Their loud and belligerent behavior just reinforces sistagurl stereotypes, however. So there is some unity amongst da sistahs here, but it's used to protect an individual who was in the wrong, sadly.
Luckily, the perpetrator gets a heavy punishment. The episode concludes with the victim learning that her assailant was captured. I too concur that "people are people," but wearing an Afrocentric and womanist hat, it can be saddening to hear and see the facts presented in this particular show.
