Episode Summary

EDIT
Sideshow (2)
AIRED:
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
