On New Year’s Eve, the detectives sit back in the quiet of the evening and watch a documentary that Brodie has made about them and their work. In this documentary, entitled “”BACK PAGE NEWS: Life and Homicide On The Mean Streets Of Baltimore””, one of Frank and Tim’s cases is covered where some “”lies and hidden truths”” are revealed. During a sequence about one of Mike and Meldrick’s cases, they chase a suspect right into the filming of something called “”Homicide”” by director Barry Levinson and his crew. Mike and Julianna agree to try a date. Also, the identity of the “”lunch bandit”” is revealed to be Gaffney. Brodie reveals that the documentary has been sent to PBS and gives his reasons why. As the new year rolls in, things return to normal as the phones start ringing.
