Episode Summary

AIRED:
The Internet is stage for a ritual murder, which was staged -- which was staged, or was it? The body is found the following morning and Sheppard takes the call, her first since the beating. Since Lewis can't be found, she partners with Bayliss. Second shift detectives Bonaventura and Austin catch word of the day shift's case. It seems the victim in Sheppard's case was a witness they had interviewed the day before about an online murder hoax. The detectives are informed about another murder that is scheduled for midnight. It's a red ball. The detectives try to put the clues together, but come up with nothing and must wait until the netcast begins before they can trace the killer. The trace is successful, but when they arrive at the scene, the killer has left them a computer with the words "Ha Ha Fooled You." Barnfather wants Bayliss reassigned as primary if something doesn't turn up soon. Sheppard goes online to flush out the killer. He advertises another murder will take place at www.inplainsite.com, which turns out to be a web site run by Bayliss. The webcast begins, the killer's cell phone signal is tracked and he is apprehended.moreless

      • Sheppard Get out of my face.
        Bayliss You don't need these files, Renee. You know every single thing that is in these files. What you need to do is you need to get over this, 'poor Renee, got beatdown everyone thinks she can't handle her case' crap. You can either let what happened wipe away every shread of your ability to be a detective or you can keep going and you can work murders, you can close cases.
        Sheppard And what if I can't? What if I don't close the case.
        Bayliss You know what, then it stays up on the board in red and you go on, you move on to the next case and the next one after that and the next one after that.
        Sheppard Screw you, Bayliss.
        Bayliss Screw you too, Renee. Do you're job!
        Sheppard What, or you'll take over as primary?
        Bayliss What else are friends for.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Also, here is a link to Tim Bayliss's web site "In Plain Site" at www.inplainsite.com. Not a whole lot there, but it was nice the created one for the purpose of this episode. How long this link will last, it is hard to say, but enjoy it while you can!

      • This episode tied in with Second Shift detectives who appear on NBC's Homicide web site. A participator in some of this online activity noted that essentially it introduced the characters and the fake online killings. It wasn't until the television episodes, that the actual murder takes place. Ayelet Sela, the story writer of this episode, was responsible for the story, script, production and direction of the online episode "Homicide.com".
