Silk Stalkings - Going to Babylon television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. A pair of suspicious deaths, involving an older man found in his car of an apparent heart attack and a dead prostitute found in her car across town, send Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) into the seedier side of Palm Springs kinky underbelly in a case that will make Rita confront some personal demons. Fairly quickly the pair are able to identify the swinging couple of old man Cameron (R.G. Armstrong) and his younger wife (Deborah Rennard) as those responsible for both deaths. Neither the pair’s attempt to frame their son’s college friend (Chris Browning) for the murder not a snitch (J.C. Quinn) giving away Chris and Rita’s identities on an undercover sting will prevent the Chris and Rita from closing the case.

“Going to Babylon” continues to build-up themes of the show that will become staples. We get plenty of more golf metaphors for sex, garish set design, and examples of Chris being taken advantage of by his ex-girlfriends. The episode is most notable for filling in a bit of Rita’s past and tying her emotionally to taking down Cameron (the man who ruined her father and drove him to suicide decades before).
