Episode Summary

EDIT
La Famiglia
AIRED:
Bayliss returns to duty to discover the bosses have renovated the squad room in an attempt to make everyone forget the tragedy of last May. Gharty and Ballard have also returned and Ballard debates about whether she should ask Falsone to the Lodge party. New detective, Rene Sheppard, tells her just to go for it. Seizing the opportunity, Lewis goes for it and asks Sheppard to the party; it seems that he and Barbara have separated and are on their way to divorce. Meanwhile, Falsone speculates if he should ask Sheppard to the party. The first case Bayliss catches, now partnered with Munch, involves the dismembered body of Angelo Faltislo, a friend of Gee's cousin, Mario Giardello. Stivers and Falsone's case is similar: Leo Grimaldi, another friend of Mario, is also found dead. When Gee goes to question cousin Mario, he finds Mario's body in the same condition as that of his friends. Gee's estranged son, Mike Giardello, an FBI agent in Arizona, returns for the funeral. Mike asks Falsone (who initially declines) if he can help with the investigation. Mike discovers an old family secret is the key to the murders that key having just been released from prison. Mike's surveillance of the key's offspring reveals that they are involved and they are arrested. However, even with all the evidence -- nobody's talking; Danvers can only assure that two of the three murders can be closed with convictions; the Giardello case remains open. Mike and Gee work on reducing the strain in their relationship and Mike decides he is going to ask the FBI for a transfer that will get him back to Baltimore.moreless
