  • Season 7
    • Forgive Us Our Trespasses
      Sheppard and Bayliss await the trial of Luke Ryland, the Internet killer. A number of delays keep the hearing from being held; the last time it is because Danvers can't make it due to being held up in another trial. Because of a technicality in the law, Ryland is set free. Bayliss is outraged and winds up pushing Danvers, who later threatens to put Bayliss up on charges. Gee's daughter Teresa arrives, to help with the celebration of her father's promotion. Gee asks Bayliss to apologize to Danvers and Bayliss declines. Lewis and Falsone look into the murder of a drug addict whose husband looks like the most probable suspect. The victim's mother-in-law isn't very cooperative and her sister is a nun who thinks her brother-in-law is an architect. Gee worries about whether or not he will be able to perform in his new role as Captain of the property crimes division, later he turns down the promotion. Bayliss and Lewis have words about the way each other handle their memories of the past. Munch and Billie Lou get married, with Gee and Ballard as the witnesses; however, Munch's six weeks of celibacy result in a "premature" end to the wedding night activities. The drug addict's husband is found, questioned and charged; the nun asks to see her brother-in-law, so that she may forgive him for his actions. Lewis reconsiders his position on Sheppard, when his comment about the nun's ability for forgiveness and Falsone's response gets him thinking. Bayliss warns Luke Ryland that he'll be watching him. Ryland says he is leaving town, but Bayliss can always find him on the Internet. Bayliss talks with Munch about Gordon Pratt (the man who shot Bolander, Howard and Felton) and confesses to Munch that he once suspected that Munch might have been the one to kill Pratt. Bayliss also goes to visit Danvers and apologizes. Lewis asks Sheppard to partner with him on a case. Bayliss packs up his things and quietly leaves the Homicide unit. The body found is Luke Ryland's.moreless
    • Homicide: The Movie
      Gee is running for mayor and one part of his platform is a plan is the legalization of drugs. As he is making an appearance at the Inner Harbor, he is shot multiple times. Current and former members of the Homicide unit receive the news and begin to converge on the hospital and the unit. Bayliss returns from his self-imposed sabbatical; Pembleton stops the class he is teaching and they go back to the unit along with Howard, where Lt. Gharty and the squad are beginning their quest to find the shooter. Bolander, Russert and later Brodie arrive at the hospital. MGee is hostile with the media and is angry with himself for his feelings that he still hasn't fully reconciled his relationship with his father. Pembleton detects that Bayliss is jumpy about Lewis' open case involving Luke Ryland. Pembleton and Bayliss go into the box and take over the interview of homeless guy that grabbed Giardello, just before the shooting. Det. Hall brings a complaint to Gaffney about losing his interview. Gaffney comes down to bust Gharty's balls and tells Pembleton that as a civilian he needs to get out of this official investigation. The detectives begin investigating people from Gee's past, enemies, etc. On their own, Pembleton and Bayliss begin their own investigation.

      Munch and Billie Lou have a few words, but it isn't clear that it was Stu Gharty that caused their break-up, as Munch had explained to his colleagues in the Special Victims Unit back in New York.

      While Gee is on the operating table, the surgical team becomes the victim of a second shooting. One theory that is speculated is that someone in the department might be responsible. Pembleton and Bayliss join Ballard and Stivers in their reviewing of videotapes. ME's Griscom and Cox stop at the hospital to theorize about the forensics of Gee's shooting, over Gee's still breathing body. MGee and Kellerman visit the old neighborhood to follow MGee's hunch, but Kellerman rightly identifies it as a dead end. Gee returns to consciousness. After Ballard and Stivers leave to pursue other leads, Pembleton sees a "puff a smoke" on one of the videotapes. Pembleton and Bayliss gives Gharty the news and some backbone (Gharty's a self confessed stooge for the bosses to get off the street), they visit the cameraman who was near the puff of smoke. The cameraman confesses to the Inner Harbor shooting. Later, Bayliss confesses to Pembleton that he killed Luke Ryland, but Pembleton doesn't want to hear it. Frank Pembleton comes in for one day and closes two cases, although we don't really know what happens to Bayliss after his confession. Meanwhile, the rest of the detectives gather at the Waterfront Bar to celebrate the closing of the case, but Brodie arrives bringing bad news, Gee has died as the result of an aneurysm. In the end, Gee finds himself playing cards in the break room with Crosetti, Felton and another empty chair.moreless

After Munch approaches him strongly, the boyfriend retaliates by coming to the Waterfront and slamming Billie Lou's head on the bar.

      Episode 18
      In Stivers and Falsone's case, a man is found shot dead in his bed, with no signs of a struggle. Gee lobbies Barnfather to find a way to get them the ability to have some control over their FBI liaison, so they don't experience the same problems they had with the Janine McBride case. Barnfather lets Gee know that there is Captain's position opening up and he should be inline for it with no catches. Lewis lets Ballard accompany him on a bar stabbing, when she accuses him of being afraid to work with a female, since the incident with Sheppard. While she does get to help him with the initial investigation, Lewis manages to work the rest of the case on his own, leaving her to handle the details. Meanwhile, Ballard's usual partner Gharty spends a "mental health day" at the Waterfront Bar, drinking and proposing to Billie Lou. Stivers and Falsone discover their victim had a bad breakup with his ex-wife Eleanor Burke, and she admits to committing the crime; however, as an assistant US attorney, she plan's on using "Battered Spouse Syndrome" as the defense that will let her plead this as a case of self-defense. Ironic since the victim showed no signs of struggle. Falsone follows Ballard, when he finds out that she has joined the ME's duckpin bowling team. The judge on the murder case feels that no one is speaking for the victim, since Danvers seems to be doing little to prosecute, so he sets the bail high. Danvers asks Gee to talk with the judge, who he knows is an old friend of Gees, to see if he can't get him to change his ruling. Gee understands where the judge is coming from and makes a stand on it that Barnfather thinks is not politically correct for Gee's pending promotion. MGee reveals evidence he had in his possession that implicates Burke in her crime, that he was holding back because of pressures he was getting regarding his father's possible promotion. The charges are upgraded to 2nd degree murder.moreless

      Danvers brings news of his appointment to the District Court bench as the investigation of a government official named Janine McBride, begun on Law & Order continues in New York. Their prime suspect, Chesley Purcell, is dead and her shooter, Ned Burks, is in the hands of the Feds. What was her connection back to Washington? Gee expresses his anger with MGee over letting his "ham fisted" bosses at the FBI know what was going on, since they in turn had informed Wm. Dell, the Independent Counsel. Burks is given a limited amount of immunity for his testimony to Dell, but McCoy and Danvers get an order that allows them to be present at his questioning; but neither the Independent Counsel nor McCoy and Danvers get anything useful. Meanwhile, the Baltimore detectives investigate the background of Chesley Purcell and it turns up the name of a man in prison who still appears to be running his organization. So there could be no more leaks, MGee asks to be kept out of the investigation. Munch and Sheppard question Walter Boyce, the prisoner who arranged the hit on McBride. Lewis is still worried about Sheppard's ability to perform on the street and Stivers is still trying to "get right" with Sheppard's actions during the incident where Sheppard was beaten up. Boyce is to be rewarded by someone with connections at the White House. Danvers appeals to the judge to do the right thing and deny Boyce the hearing that may get him released from prison early. Walter Dawkins, who is located in the White House, denies having any knowledge of Boyce. MGee finds information that McBride, the original victim in this case, was going to be a witness in Dell's investigation. When all the facts come together, it's Danvers and McCoy who believe they will be able to subpoena Dell to testify in their case. The Independent Counsel has information on Danvers' past, and Danvers appeals to Gee and the Baltimore CID for help. For Danvers it means he will probably lose approval of his judgeship. All the hard work of the Baltimore and New York detectives and attorneys only helps Dell to get the witness he needs to continue going after the Administration.moreless
