Episode Summary

EDIT
A Little Dad'll Do Ya
AIRED:
McDowell and Ortiz start investigating the rape of a woman in her home. The victim's husband says that he saw his cousin Lenny Gano escaping out their window and they should be looking for him. Clark Jr. goes to visit the James Kilik, the kid that he and Sipowicz had rescued from his bizarre mother a few weeks earlier. Clark Jr. is still looking into ways to try helping the kid out. The other detectives are starting to work the homicide of a young Asian girl. Back at the squad, Sipowicz tells Clark Jr. that Eddie Gibson has done some work with foster children and may be able to help them with James Kilik. McDowell talks with Ortiz about her late husband's funeral and then they collar Lenny Gano. Sipowicz interviews the parents of their victim and they give him a name a boy their daughter knew. John Irvin's sister Delia arrives for a visit. She really wants to talk to him about his father and his pending heart operation. John still isn't interested is resuming his relationship with his father, a father who cut him off after John "came out of the closet". McDowell and Ortiz question Lenny Gano who admits that he'd been sleeping with his cousin's wife, but he didn't rape her. Sipowicz asks John if he's all right and John responds in the affirmative, but Sipowicz doesn't appear to buy it. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Gibson, who's recovered from his surgery enough to almost be back on the job full time, about James Kilik. Gibson thinks they might be trying to guilt him into taking the kid in; when they really only want some of his foster family contacts. With Gibson gone, they begin talking to the boy who knew their victim. He tells them that about the treatment that victim had been receiving from her parents. The victim was an unwanted doctor. McDowell and Ortiz re-interview their rape victim about her story. She confesses that their sex was consensual; she claimed rape to protect Lenny from his cousin. Haywood and Jones discuss their need to still communicate. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their victim's sister and she doesn't seem very cooperative. The ME reports their victim had been getting beat for a quite a while. Sipowicz asks John what's going on and John tells him about his father. Sipowicz tells him about his experience with getting back together with Andy Jr. and how much he appreciated that the opportunity for that occurred. Jones and Medavoy interview the Asian victim's father who doesn't cooperate well with them. Back at the squad, Gibson calls Sipowicz with an offer to meet with Sipowicz, Clark Jr. and James Kilik. Gibson has tentative approval from his wife to take the boy in, but he wants to meet him first. Lenny Gano's cousin with the temper comes in to get his girlfriend, who he heard has been arrested. He causes a scuffle to break out in the squad. McDowell and Ortiz are both thrown to the ground and might be injured. McDowell uses a fire extinguisher to bring him down. Fraker, the IAB captain stops by, to ask what happened in squad, saying the victim says the force was excessive. The excessive force caused the victim to require forty stitches to the back of his head. Rodriguez tells him that everything that happened in the squad was above board. Fraker seems to have the need to want to find this squad guilty of doing something wrong. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their victim's mother (via a translator). The mother confesses to the murder, saying the second daughter was her fault. Her husband only performed the burial. Clark Jr. picks up James Kilik for their meeting. John Irvin stops by to see his father in the hospital and his father still won't accept his lifestyle. John leaves, not feeling good about their reunion. James Kilik meets with Eddie Gibson and it goes well enough that James has a new home.moreless
