in last night’s ep there wz just the most ulp-OMG-how-tha-FVCK moment of acting i remember in a copshow EVER: the lead villain-cop’s malleable g/f — who wz some sort of rape-counsellor/community-liaison blah blah — had bin caught mulin druqgz for him, and wz defendin him under interrogation, and stonewallin, except she wz bein persuaded to shop him and JUST AT THE POINT she did, she let two tears leave her brimmin eyes and actually run down her cheeks

like a kind of physical-symbolic release
