Main Cast[]

Guest Cast[]




  • The sixth episode in which the victim is a member of the military, after "Honor", "The War at Home", "Shore Leave", "WASP", and "The Good Soldier".
  • Thom Barry does not appear in this episode.
  • The song "Get Together" by The Youngbloods was also used in the Season One episode "Volunteers", which was also set in 1969. It is the second case of an end song being reused in a later episode as a flashback song, the first being "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", the end song of "Wishing" being used in a flashback during "The Road".
  • As part of the storyline in which Lilly is being considered to join the Federal Cold Case Unit, this case has no connection to Philadelphia, a first in the series. It instead takes place in New York.
  • Though never referred to in dialogue, Roy's last name is given in cast lists as Easton, despite that Megan's sister Sloane Easton had the same last name. This means Roy either took her last name, or she happened to marry someone with the exact same last name as her own.
  • Last appearance of Jonathan Lapaglia as ADA Curtis Bell.
  • This episode recycles several plot points from past episodes.
    • Just like "A Time to Hate", the case involves a high-ranking city official whose loved one died a long time ago.
    • The story is about a military man who asks the girl he loves to wait for him, just like in "Shore Leave", and they plan to run away to Canada to avoid the Vietnam War, just like in "Revolution".
    • There is a subplot involving terrorist hippies, like in "Blood on the Tracks". The leader of those hippies then became an author like the killer in "Volunteers".


  • Joe Cocker "Darling Be Home Soon"
  • Thunderclap Newman "Something in the Air"
  • Donovan "Colours"
  • Big Brother and the Holding Company "Piece of My Heart"
