Screencaps for Ep 4.12 added

I have just added the screencaps for The Cat's Paw to the episodes' page. We are introduced to Inspector Irene Baker, of burglary department, who is involved in a romantic relationship with Mike Stone lately. When one of Irene's cases turns from simple jewelry theft into murder, Mike is assigned to partner with her - and things are soon turned up-side-down when Stone and Baker draw their (different) conclusions: Mike believes the burglar also is a killer, and Irene does not believe the murder fits the cat burglar's pattern. Steve - who, initially, is rather amused by Mike's preoccupation – soon learns that his partner is having more than just a simple love affair with Irene (it appears they are even proposed to each other, actually) and is really struggling with the dispute he is having with her over the case. Even Jeannie tries to help, but only the final solution of the crime seems to make space for a more relaxed atmosphere. It turns out that Mike was wrong - and Irene was right - and jealousy is the answer. Personally, I am pretty unhappy with this episode. First off, the film material used appears to be uncommonly coarse-grained which is really disturbing; another aspect is the romantic relations between Mike and Irene which is brought to us as a matter of course - but it does not really fit in the picture and appears as to be somehow taken out of context.

Filming location info will follow soon.
