Episode Summary

Vincent saves a teenage boy and takes him to the hospital, where he remains unconscious in a coma. The boy's x-rays show signs of abuse, so Cat and Tess question the boy's father, Zachary Holt, who hypothesizes that his son's ADHD and track record of fighting and gambling may have gotten him into trouble. Cat and Tess then question Lois Whitworth, who owns the Westchester Polo Club where the boy worked. They learn that Lois's daughter, Clarissa, has been going out with the victim. Though Clarissa says that she ended the relationship when she learned about her boyfriend's illegal activities, Cat and Tess suspect that she's not telling them everything. Meanwhile, Silverfox and the Murifield agents make contact with Cat and offer to tell her the truth about her mother's death if she turns over Vincent.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Catherine: I'm used to things being black and white and this is's grey. The things you've done.
      Vincent: I hate myself for them.
      Catherine: I know that and I know that you can't control it and that...that you have a good heart. But I'm gonna have questions.
      Vincent : Look, for the first time in a long, long while I felt like new things are possible for me. But Catherine, the way that you looked at me in the park that night? Everything came crashing back. The reality of what I am and what I have done. The idea that you and J.T. are paying the price for it, that you are collateral damage because of me, that is why I gave myself in.
      Catherine: You know that, um, that first night we met, in the woods, I knew that you would never hurt me. That was my gut. I'm sticking with that.

    • Tess: Listen, you have really good hand-eye coordination. You can hit a bull's-eye. You just have to stop thinking.
      Catherine: I can't help it, there's just too much to remember.
      Tess: It's like sex. There's nothing to remember, you just do it.
      Catherine: Yeah, at this point, I'd have to think to remember.
      Tess: Sad.

    • J.T.: Seriously, how long does it take to much a fingerprint?
      Catherine: We just sent it in.
      J.T.: Call the CSI guy again.
      Catherine: CSU. CSI is a TV show.
