Episode Summary

EDIT
It's the morning after for John and Jennifer and they'll both be late for work if John doesn't put the honey bottle away. The detectives respond to the scene of a homicide in grocery, where no money was taken. Ortiz spots Clark getting out of Dr. Devlin's car and is short with him when he says hello. Back at the squad, canvas hasn't turned up anything, but crime scene did get a fingerprint from a similar crime that occurred the night before. That fingerprint belongs to Terry Parkhurst. Medavoy tells the others that he is anticipating receipt of the list that might announce his promotion to detective 2nd grade. McDowell makes plans for a small wedding ceremony that might be able to take place later that evening. Rodriguez calls Sipowicz into his office and tells him that the commissioner will not allow two detectives in the same squad to be married. Sipowicz asks Rodriguez if it will be a problem with him if they go ahead and get married anyway. He tells them it won't, as long as it stays in the squad. Sipowicz and Clark go to the apartment of Terry Parkhurst. They meet his wheel chair bound brother Mike, who tells them that his brother can't be the guy their looking for. They leave, but tell Mike that they want to talk to his brother anyway and if he hears from him, he should pass along the message. A gang member who shook down the grocer is another possible suspect in the grocer's death. Medavoy comes in announcing that he got his promotion. He reads for his colleagues a little speech that he prepared for the event, but breaks up before he can finish reading. Clark tries to have a discussion with Ortiz about the way she's been acting of late. They come to no resolution of their current situation, other that her observation that he "can sometimes be a real asshole." Clark and Sipowicz interview the gang member, who swears he changed from his past life. He is now a college student at SUNY. They don't believe him and get him to reveal his true gang member nature. Fraker, from IAB, comes into Rodriguez's office. He brings with him a laundry list of infractions that Rodriguez's squad is out of control. Rodriguez threatens to call the Chief of Detectives. When Fraker leaves, he tells Sipowicz that he is going to want to see 4 of Sipowicz's old cases. Terry Parkhurst looks good for the crime, when a vehicle seen at the crime scene, matches one owned by him. Sipowicz tells McDowell about what Rodriguez told him earlier and with Fraker nosing around, he wonders if they shouldn't call the wedding off. McDowell offers to transfer precincts, but he disagrees. They agree that they will still get married, but will keep it quiet. While sitting waiting for Parkhurst to arrive, Sipowicz tells Clark about his and McDowell's intentions on getting married at their apartment that evening. Parkhurst arrives, but he makes Anti-Crime, takes off, and gets away. At another crime scene, Rodriguez arrives looking for something to tell the brass, they are also present on the scene. McDowell finds out her Judge friend is not going to be able to preside over their ceremony tonight and tells Sipowicz. An eavesdropping John Irvin tells them that there is a website, where you can become an ordained minister in 15 minutes for $10. The couple asks him if he would follow through with that and preside over their ceremony. He agrees and runs off to use anti-crimes computer. The detectives run the state of the case past Rodriguez when Martens arrives. Rodriguez asks him what's up with Fraker. Martens doesn't know of any formal investigation into the squad, but he does tell them that Fraker was passed over for a promotion and his affair with a subordinate was found out. Jones and Medavoy talk with Parkhurst's brother who's arrived at home. They try to give Parkhurst reasons for helping them to find his brother. He agrees to help them by accompanying them to the various locations where his brother has been known to hang out. In the bathroom, Clark inquires about whether Sipowicz is nervous his pending wedding. Fraker comes into the bathroom (gets Clark to leave) and tells Sipowicz about how he's going to start to bring him down and that he also knows that Sipowicz is cohabitating with one of his fellow detectives. Clark tries to apologize to Ortiz. While he hears part of what McDowell has heard from Medavoy's discussion with Parkhurst, Sipowicz asks them to bring him into the squad. Sipowicz has realized that Parkhurst's brother might not be as wheelchair bound as he appears and that he is the Parkhurst they are really looking for. Parkhurst tells them that he has posed as his wheelchair bound brother to continue collecting his brother's checks, as payment for all the care he has given his brother for the past 10 years. John Irvin has become an official reverend and Sipowicz and McDowell get ready to go home for their wedding. They tell Rodriguez they would have liked to have invited him, but don't want to put him into a bad spot. Ortiz comes into Rodriguez's office requesting a transfer. He asks her to sleep on it. She talks with McDowell. She regrets that with her current relationship with Clark it is probably best that she not come to the wedding. She also tells her that she's realized that she was more in love with Clark than she knew at the time. McDowell leaves as Fraker comes into the squad and Rodriguez's office, demanding Sipowicz's appearance. Rodriguez realizes that Fraker has been drinking. Fraker's world has come apart. They square off and Fraker turns to leave and pulls a gun. He shoots Rodriguez in the chest. Fraker comes around the desk to finish the job, when Ortiz discharges her weapon and brings him down. At the hospital, everyone from the squad is present as the wedding has been put on hold. Rodriguez's condition is that he unconscious, but his vital signs are stable for now.moreless
