Episode Recap

This episode begins with Pembleton searching around dumpsters, at the back of a Church, where Catherine Goodrich's body was found. A nearby reporter asks Pembleton "off the record" what his chances of catching the killer are, Pembleton responds "off the record… excellent". A nearby Bayliss alerts Pembleton that a shed in an alley behind the Church has been broken into.

Back at the precinct, shift commander Russert removes Roger Gaffney from the case when she finds he may have bypassed critical information (the shed). Russert makes Pembleton the new primary.

Bayliss, now partners with Munch and Lewis in their quest to buy a bar, signs some papers, with the hopes that they will get a liquor license. This plan takes a turn for the worse when Bayliss is found to have a prior arrest. As it turns out Bayliss was involved in a pyramid scheme way back, ripping people off of their money.

Another body is found, the murder is a carbon copy of the Goodrich murder. The body is found behind a church, in a dumpster, and wearing a white glove, the same as Goodrich's body. The detectives really begin to realize this is probably the work of a long time serial killer. An obsessed nut, that collects evidence from killings, comes in with information on other murders done in the same style. The detectives also hear that the suspect was also seen, in the past, wearing a red wig.

Howard is once again getting bombarded with calls and visits from Felton's wife. Felton finally tells Howard of his relationship with shift commander Russert. Howard tells Felton that his wife wants him to come over to see his kids, when Felton arrives the kids are not there, Felton gets furious.

This episode ends with yet another body being discovered, in similar fashion.
