In Major Case Squad
Falacci is introduced in the episode "Seeds" as the temporary partner of Det. Mike Logan (Chris Noth), assigned to the Major Case Squad of the New York City Police Department (NYPD), due to Det. Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) going over to Europe to teach American police procedure to European police officers (covering Nicholson's first maternity leave).
Starting with her first assignment, Falacci displays an abrasive and volatile personality and take-charge attitude during investigations; this leads her commanding officer Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian) to label her "not much of a people person." Logan excuses her, and replies that after so many partnerships where he was the hotter head, now he is looking forward to being the diplomat for a change ("I'm not used to being the voice of reason," in Logan's own words).
