Originally posted by Big BadDo you mean split as in the show has four detectives working the case (i.e. Law & Order: SVU) or they're actually splitting the episodes so that one show will be D'Onofrio/Erbe and the next will be Noth/Sciorra?

The reason she left him the first time was because he was never at home and she feared for his life, right? This is just a continuation of that. Shame she's going though (if that's indeed the direction they are taking)
