* RevisitingTheColdCase: Owen keeps re-investigating an old cold case which was actually his first case as a detective. The murder occurred on 9/11 and the investigation was interrupted when the planes hit the World Trade Center. When he was able to return to the case, the trail has gone cold and evidence was lost. It became ThatOneCase for him. The case is finally solved when a witness discovers that he is dying and decides to come clean about what really happened.

''Golden Boy'' is a 2013 series airing in the US on CBS. It revolves around a young patrolman named Walter William Clark, Jr. (Theo James) who shoots a robber and saves his hostage in a highly publicized street incident. In the resulting publicity Walter is not only promoted to detective but gets his choice of assignment. Walter chooses homicide, becoming the least senior member of the squad by ten years. While he wants to be assigned to fellow hotshot Christian Arroyo (Kevin Alejandro) as a partner, his actual partner is the older and crustier Don Owen (Chi [=McBride=]). The series is in a way an extended flashback, as Walter reminisces seven years in the future from his position as New York's youngest ever police commissioner.
