Who's Your Daddy?
: Ep 22 -
John meets Jennifer for breakfast, she appears to be on the road to recovery and he continues to offer her his support. At a crime scene Sipowicz arrives a little out of sorts, earlier that morning Connie gave birth to their son, Matthew Nicholas, 7 lbs. 3 oz. Jones and Medavoy also arrive at the scene, where a woman has been robbed and beaten to death in her apartment. Irma Pacheco, one of Ronson's old contacts from narcotics comes to the squad and tells Ronson and Ortiz some information about a guy she's seeing, Pete Murphy, who is going to be receiving a shipment of arms. Irma wants to know from Ronson what kind of reward she might receive and whether or not it would be enough money for her and Ronson to run off together, a comment which leaves Ortiz speechless. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the dead woman's husband, Andrew Moss. He mentions his wife's ex-husband, Ed Pisarchik, as someone they need to look at. Jones leaves to go to the court; the jury has come back in Craig Woodruff's trial. Special Agent Charlie Marcus comes to the squad and talks with Ronson and Ortiz about Pete Murphy. He tells them about Pete's father, someone they are looking for some possible jewelry heists, but Pete Murphy is still small time. He also tells them that their source, Irma's credibility is questionable. Ronson and Ortiz need to talk to Irma again. The jury comes in and has found that Craig Woodruff is not guilty on all charges, he is free to go. Jones leaves the court discouraged by this turn of events. Ed Pisarchik is brought in for questioning; he highlights his relationship with his ex-wife and her new husband. He didn't want her dead; he still loved her and hoped they could get back together. Ronson and Ortiz talk again with Irma, who tells them that the arms deal was something that Pete Murphy has put together on his own. Ronson still believes in her old contact and plans to get Gibson and the Feds to authorize Irma wearing a wire for her next meeting with Murphy. Michael comes into the squad and tells Jones tells him the result of trial. Michael wonders if he did anything wrong during the trial that got his father acquitted. Jones tells him he did okay; for now they are going to live their lives as before and not worry about the fact that his father is out on the street. A strange man caught using one of Leslie Moss's credit cards is questioned by Sipowicz and Clark. John Irvin interrupts the interview to tell Clark that Jennifer Devlin called but she was slurring her speech so he didn't fully understand her message. Ronson, Ortiz and others are listening in as Irma wears a wire during her meeting with Pete Murphy. When Irma isn't as loose as she normally is with him, Murphy becomes suspicious and finds the wire. The detectives rush into the scene, but find no evidence of the pair. Clark gets to Devlin's apartment and finds her body lying on the floor. Andrew Moss is brought back in and Sipowicz is going to question him when the news comes into the squad about Jennifer Devlin's suicide and the fact that Clark has gone missing. Sipowicz questions Moss about his recent calls to a divorce attorney and the other relationships he's had with his secretaries. Moss wants to get out of there, but Sipowicz tells him he's not leaving until they get things sorted out. Ronson and Ortiz interview Pete Murphy's father to see if they can discover his whereabouts. Joe Murphy tells them his rules about dealing with cops, but he relents and gives the location of his old body shop. Ronson and Ortiz go to the scene (without backup?) where they find Pete Murphy holding a gun and a knife on Irma. They talk him into giving himself up. In the meantime, Sipowicz talks with Ed Pisarchik and his son about him and his mother's relationship with her new husband. He tells them that his new step-father wasn't around much, but when asked if he knew Andrew Moss was around the house this morning the boy doesn't respond with an answer. Sipowicz gets a call and goes to a bar where Clark has gotten into a fight with someone. Sipowicz tries to offer Clark some assistance, but Clark prefers instead to go for a walk on his own. Something at the Pisarchik house interview didn't sit right with Sipowicz, so he asks Medavoy to get the father to come into the squad, while he goes to the house to talk to the son alone. Jones leaves the squad because a call has come in that there is a problem at Michael's school. Medavoy offers to come along, but as has been the case with these Michael related activities, Jones prefers to go it alone. At the Pisarchik house, Sipowicz gets the boy to tell him what he had done recently that could have made his father angry with his mother. He says that she wanted him to call Andrew Moss "dad" and two weeks ago his did that in front of his real father. Jones finds Craig Woodruff enjoying that cold beer that Jones once told him he would never have again. They go outside to discuss the situation further and Jones offers Woodruff a chance to fight him without the protection of his badge. After it appears as though Woodruff is not going to fight him, Jones turns away allowing Woodruff to land a cheap shot, but Jones counters and quickly puts him down. Back at the squad, Sipowicz interviews Pisarchik about the "dad" situation. Pisarchik tells him that her having his son call the other man "dad" took the only thing he had left away from him and that's what caused him to lose it and hit his ex-wife with a baseball bat. Ortiz and Ronson report that Pete Murphy has given up all the information related to the gun deal and that Irma is getting stitched up at Bellevue. John Irvin tells Sipowicz that no one has heard anything from Clark. Sipowicz is leaving to go to see Connie at the hospital, but before he leaves he talks with Jones about the injury to his face. He advises Jones to watch his relationship with Craig Woodruff and that he should take steps to protect himself in case Woodruff tries to file a complaint against him. Jones suggests that Sipowicz keep tabs on his situation. At the Sipowicz household, Andy talks with Theo about his upcoming responsibilities as a big brother. He sends Theo off to get ready for bed when there is a knock at the door. John Clark has come over to apologize for his behavior this afternoon. Andy doesn't want him to leave, but John tells him he needs to keep on moving. After he leaves Andy goes to Theo's room to read him a story.moreless
