McDowell finds out that her brother-in-law has made bail; and she decides she needs to end this situation. A uniform brings up a man caught dumping a bicycle in front of the precinct. The bike is the type owned by their victim; Clark Jr. and Sipowicz question him and he reluctantly gives them a lead on where to find the guy who sold it to him. McDowell questions the clerk at the hotel, where her sister and brother-in-law were staying. She gets him to give her the key and she finds her sister lying injured in her hotel bed, with her husband nowhere to be found. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz find their possible suspect at the pool hall. McDowell sees her sister at the hospital and tries to find out the whereabouts of her brother-in-law. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz interview their suspect, Cooper who tells them that they should talk with Grover Dawkins. Ortiz looks into the place where Frank Colohan worked; the owner tells her of a bar where he was known to go. Cooper makes the call that will let the detectives grab up Dawkins. Back in the interview room, when Medavoy turns his back, Cooper hits him with a chair and escapes out the window. The squad tries to hide the incident from the uniforms. McDowell returns to the hospital to find out that her that sister has died as a result of her injuries and the c-section that she had to have to give birth to a baby girl, who is 8 weeks premature. Medavoy is embarrassed by what happened and takes Dawkins cell phone to try to get a line on where Cooper may have run off to. McDowell reports into Sipowicz about her sister's fate, and he leaves to go to the hospital to be with her. Ortiz plays hardball with owner of the bar, where Colohan was known to hang out.

Rodriguez won't let him go; Jones and Clark Jr. and sent to grab Cooper, who they find enjoying the company of his girlfriend. Sipowicz warns Ortiz about the possibility of some extra violence when they grab up Colohan; however, Colohan cooperates when they detain him from getting on the bus. Sipowicz and Ortiz are with Colohan in the interview room and surprisingly Sipowicz lets him tell his story, which they insist that he put on paper for them. Sipowicz looks ready to strike out at and moment. Clark Jr. and Jones tell Cooper what the deal is and he eventually admits to stabbing the victim in the leg. Colohan finishes writing up his statement and then Sipowicz tells him the news about his wife, then they arrest him for murder and Sipowicz gets to at least throw him down on the table once. Haywood tells Sipowicz that she will personally make sure that Colohan goes for the full ride. Jones tries to help out, but Medavoy is still disgusted with himself over the day's events.
