: Ep 7 -
Theo tells his father that he misses having Connie around. Andy tells him that Connie has other responsibilities with the new baby but they will get to see her again, eventually. At the squad McDowell is on the phone checking on the baby (again) when they are called out to the scene of homicide in a vacant lot. The victim is a woman that Sipowicz believes is a hooker, based on her wardrobe; but her ID indicates she was a fashion student. Meanwhile, Jones and Medavoy are on the scene of another homicide where a woman was killed in her apartment building's laundry room. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview a friend of their student victim, who is offended when they imply her friend may have been prostituting herself. Rodriguez meets his ex-wife for lunch; she is interested in making amends with him for her past indiscretions with drug use that led to their breakup. Rodriguez is wary of their meeting, feeling that she just wants something from him; he's not ready to go through it all again.
Jones and Medavoy report to Rodriguez on the current status of their case, when a reverend comes to the squad on behalf of one of her parishioners, someone that she knows they wish to talk to. The man is wary of the police, because of past encounters. The reverend gets them to promise that they will treat him fairly. The body of another victim is found in the vacant lot, her body was missed in the morning's visit to the crime scene; this victim is a real prostitute. Jones and Medavoy talk to the building maintenance guy, a person people in the building think of as a lothario. He as much admits to his reputation, but mentions that their victim is someone he wouldn't have messed with, as she has an intimidating boyfriend. The latest victim from the vacant lot had cell phone which gives the detectives some leads to look into, one call was made to another prostitute and another incoming and outgoing call was made to/from Reed Jacobson. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Jacobson about his whereabouts and activities the previous evening. McDowell and Ortiz talk with the dead prostitute's friend who puts their victim in the location of where Jacobson lived. McDowell and Sipowicz talk about Theo, the baby and everything that is going on. Sipowicz asks her to let him and Theo into her life to help her out. With all that is going on, McDowell doesn't need that dumped on top of her as well. She leaves the room.
McDowell and Ortiz talk with Jacobson, but he sees through their questioning and gives them nothing. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. decide to visit Jacobson's place of employment to find out more about Jacobson's recent meltdown on the job. Jones and Medavoy finally get to talk to the man they've been interested in seeing; he only tells them that the victim was tutoring him. Their suspect is nervous being in the police station and isn't very forthcoming with any information. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. meet a co-worker of Jacobson and she fills them in on Jacobson's behavior at work. Jones and Medavoy tell Rodriguez about their lack of success with their suspect, but they decide to take another run at him, trying to use the reverend to their advantage. Rodriguez's ex-wife stops by the squad to give him his dad's old money clip; she also leaves him her phone number. Jones and Medavoy go back at their suspect and use the reverend to get him to admit to committing the crime after blacking out, something he'd admitted to doing in the past. Afterwards the reverend gets the impression that she may have been used by the detectives. The student victim's friend brings her laptop into the squad, which her friend had used to visit the websites of several escort services, admitting to the detectives (Sipowicz in particular) that they were right about her friend.
Jones and Medavoy lay their case out to Haywood, when Rodriguez tells them the ME reports that the blood from under the fingernails of their victim comes back as a type different from that of their primary suspect. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back at Jacobson, with their knowledge of Internet transactions with the call girl victims. Sipowicz tells them that they will find the chink is armor. Clark Jr. mentions the co-worker. Jones and Medavoy reinterview the lothario, and go back at him hard with they find wounds on him that they victim left. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. get Jacobson's co-worker to help them get Jacobson to confess to his crimes. She does, and it is enough to put him over the edge and confess. Jones and Medavoy offer an apology to their original suspect and the reverend comes in reminds them (Jones and Medavoy) of their promise to treat him fairly. Tony decides to meet his ex-wife for dinner and she takes him to show him a vacant apartment, where they reignite the passion of their past relationship. Connie brings the baby by the Sipowicz home and while Theo is holding the baby, Connie and Andy discuss the possibility of moving in together.moreless
