Cagney and Lacey
Did we mention that Jiya gets to come along on the team’s trip to Washington DC circa 1981?
Jiya’s inclusion gives Claudia Doumit a wonderful opportunity to show off her comedic chops, as she and Abigail Spencer’s Lucy team up as a couple of lesbian detectives named Cagney and Lacey (don’t worry, the show doesn’t premiere until later that year.) on an important mission.
Comedic moments aside, this double act serves a critical purpose this week, in addition to bringing a tear or two to the eye.
