Both shifts are brought in for a “red ball” case, where a sniper is shooting at people from rooftops. The shootings happen at precise time increments, putting the detectives under even more time pressure. Colonel Barnfather gets fed up with Russert’s loyalty to her people rather than him.

Munch’s reaction to having Jay Leno in his bar is made more humorous considering that Richard Belzer is also a stand-up comedian, former talk-show host and personal acquaintance of Leno.

The sniper’s wife is played by Carolyn McCormick who plays Dr. Olivet on rival crime drama, Law and Order.
