There's a somewhat out-of-the-blue Mormon reference in Episode 3 of "Murder in the First."
Detectives Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) are questioning a co-worker of a murder victim when he makes this comment:
"I can't believe she's gone," says the co-worker, Stan Shaw (Sam Daly). "Thankfully, she'll live again through resurrection."
English looks a bit startled at that unsolicited comment.
"I'm an elder in the LDS Church," Stan says.
"Oh. Right. Mormons," says English drily.
"It doesn't make me a prude," Stan says. "OK, maybe it does."
Later, we learn that the witness's co-workers referred to him as "Saint Stan."
The episode is scheduled to air on Monday, June 23. And the characters of Stan Shaw will recur on the new crime drama.
