Episode Summary

EDIT
Brotherly Love
AIRED:
Sheppard and Lewis investigate the death of a man who has a twin brother. Gharty talks about wanting to live his life; he and Ballard go to the hospital to investigate the death of a teenager. Bayliss has interest in Sheppard; later he seeks advice from Stivers, who tells him to get in line behind Lewis and Falsone. Lewis and Sheppard interview the remaining twin and his mother; she confirms his story and they try to point to the dead twin's girlfriend. Meanwhile the friend of the teenage victim in Ballard and Gharty's case confesses that his friend wasn't shot in Baltimore, but rather D.C.; he drove his friend back to Baltimore so their parent's wouldn't "kill them" for buying drugs in D.C. Gee hopes to get the case moved to D.C. Mike Giardello puts in for his FBI transfer, but the only openings they have in the area are for liaisons to local police departments. He interviews with Gaffney, who is so open to the idea, he can't wait to tell Gee. That's something Mike was going to wait for the right moment to do. Ballard and Gharty can't get their case transferred to D.C.; instead, a D.C. cop, Landrewsky, joins their investigation -- although the victim's friend has given them little to go on. Lewis and Sheppard work on the surviving twin and his mother to try and break their case. Mike and his father discuss their new working relationship. Ballard, Gharty, Landrewsky and their witness drive around DC, hoping to trigger the witness's memory -- no luck there. Gharty mentions the fact that he's left Flora. Mike moves into his new workspace.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • At the midpoint of the episode, Gee says "Naomi . . . get Ballard and Gerety. Tell them I want them in my office. Now." His detective's name is Gharty, not Gerety. However, in a previous episode, Gharty explained to retired detective Finnegan that when his ancestors came to America, the staff at Ellis Island altered what should have been Gerety into it's current form, Gharty.
