      Jones and Clark respond to the death of woman named Pamela Wyatt, who appears to have been a high priced call girl. Ortiz and Murphy arrive on the scene along with Sgt. Sipowicz who enlightens Jones and Clark about his officially taking over command of the 15 Squad. They return to the Squad and meet two new detectives that have joined the squad, Ray Quinn and Joe Slovak. They ran a dump of the Pamela Wyatt's phone records and have come up with some names to check out. Sipowicz's former Sergeant, Al Angelotti from the 25 Squad, now a retired Chief who is working security for a wealthy client comes into the squad with his client, Robert Heilbrenner and Heilbrenner's attorney. While Clark and Jones (with Sipowicz in attendance) listen to Heilbrenner describe his relationship with the Pamela Wyatt, Angelotti is out talking to the rookie detectives about what they currently know about the case. Murphy and Ortiz interview the victim's parents, both of whom were ignorant of what their daughter was really up to with her life in the city. The rookie detectives Quinn and Slovak go to interview Toshira "Johnny" Nikada but he tells them that he has diplomatic immunity and doesn't want to be bothered with their questions. While Pamela Wyatt's parents were ignorant of her activities, Murphy and Ortiz interview her sister and she knows more than she cares to about what her sister was up to. She tells them that Heilbrenner was into beatings and having her sister participate in threesomes. Jones and Clark leave the squad to find Anne Marie, the prostitute that participated in threesomes with Pamela Wyatt. Just after they've left, Heilbrenner's driver comes into to talk with them, but since they are gone he talks with Quinn and Slovak. The driver tells them what little he knew about the relationship between Pamela Wyatt and Robert Heilbrenner. Meanwhile, Jones and Clark have found Anne Marie and find out about Heilbrenner's perversions. Back at the squad, Insp. Dowdell and some government officials come in with a signed avadavat from Toshira Nikada, admitting to killing Pamela Wyatt. With his diplomatic immunity he is exonerated from any charges and is currently on his way back to Japan. The inspector tells Sipowicz that the two detectives who brought this light, Quinn and Slovak will get letters of commendation. Quinn and Slovak raise some concerns about the confession and mention the conversation they had with Angelotti earlier that morning. Clark brings his concerns to Sipowicz and Sipowicz agrees to keep the case open and that he will worry about the bosses. Quinn and Slovak find the woman that Johnny Nikada was having lunch with. She tells them that if they want to know anything bad about him, she suggest that they talk to his uncle. Murphy and Ortiz go to talk with Heilbrenner's wife. She knew about her husband's mistress and that their relationship was ended and she doesn't believe that her husband is capable of the perversions that the detectives enlighten her with. The Chief of Detectives, Duffy, stops by to officially close the investigation, "is that understood?" Sgt. Sipowicz says it is. Clark and Jones interview Johnny Nikada's uncle and he admits that his nephew has had a problem with gambling debts to a bookie named Segal. He also tells them that his nephew knew Robert Heilbrenner. As he was showing an apartment in the neighborhood Medavoy stops by to say hi, only everyone is much too busy to give him much more than the time of day. Murphy and Ortiz talk to the bookie, who tells them that today Johnny Nikada paid off the $110,000 he owed him. Jones and Clark catch up with Heilbrenner's driver and chauffeur him back to the precinct for further questioning. They question him harder and they tell him that he could be an "accessory after the fact" if he doesn't tell them what happened at Pamela Wyatt's apartment building this morning. He tells them what transpired with Heilbrenner this morning and that he wants his conscience clear. Murphy, Ortiz and Sipowicz go to the Heilbrenner home where they arrest him. Back at the squad, Bale has come in to clean out his office. Downstairs Heilbrenner's attorney and Angelotti are their awaiting the arrival of their client and the detectives. Angelotti tells Sipowicz that he could have had him as a friend, instead of the enemy that he has become. Sipowicz tells him that he has work to do and the pressures of command keep mounting for him when Chief Duffy arrives. Duffy reads Sipowicz the riot act and warns him not to let it happen again. Bale comes into Sipowicz's office and tells him about the three things he has to worry about in his position, those above him, those below and still be able to live with himself. Bale believes that Sipowicz has a chance with the last two, but wishes him luck with the first and with that Bale turns over the office. The new guys say their farewell to Sipowicz, as does John Irvin, Murphy and Ortiz, Jones and finally Clark who tells him "Good night. Boss." Sipowicz finally sits down at his new desk as the camera pulls back through his office door and out the doorway of the 15 Squad. FADE TO BLACK.moreless

      8.6
      The interim boss Lt. Henry comes into the squad and introduces himself to the detectives, who in turn introduce themselves. They offer to bring him up to speed on their cases, but Lt. Henry is the anti-Bale and tells them they can get to it when they get to it. He is more interested in knowing if any of them like to play golf. Murphy and Ortiz go to the scene of a homicide where a young Muslim woman, Farah Amar has been stabbed to death. In questioning the neighbor they learn that the woman had numerous loud arguments with her husband. Back at the squad while Sipowicz tries to bring their new boss "Arnold Palmer" up to speed on their investigation into Bale's shooting, Jones and Clark try to get more information about Sergei Yesenin's whereabouts from "Russian Mike" who has come back in for further questioning. "Russian Mike" wants a deal before he will cooperate any further with the investigation. The husband of Murphy and Ortiz's victim, Adeeb Amar, comes in for questioning. The man is broken up when he finds out about her death and he tells them that Ibrahim Moussadiq was probably responsible. Ibrahim had always wanted to marry his wife back in their home country and once indicated that if he couldn't have her then no one should be able to have her. Sipowicz goes to the hospital to visit Bale and he tells him about the case and his temporary replacement. Bale tells him about the nerve damage that will probably keep him from coming back and make his temporary replacement permanent. He tells Sipowicz that he should consider the possibility of taking over the squad himself. It something that Sipowicz doesn't think he wants to do, in fact he has some regrets about taking the sergeant's exam. He thinks he should have remained a detective, something he's done since he was 31. Munson comes in with the detectives to assure "Russian Mike" that he has a deal. He knows that Sergei has some Russian girls working for him, but he doesn't know where he keeps them; he does know the name of a hotel where Sergei has a deal with the clerk to provide women. Murphy and Ortiz find Ibrahim Moussadiq and bring him in for questioning. In the course of the interview, Ibrahim indicates that he had once had a relationship with Farah Amar, that he was offering her the kind of support she needed but wasn't getting from her husband, but only as a friend. Sipowicz, Clark and Jones go to the hotel and interview the clerk. Under threat of embarrassment the clerk gives them the location of a home where the working girls can be found. Murphy and Ortiz find Adeeb Amar and ask him some follow-up questions based on what Ibrahim told them. They decide they need to bring him in for further questioning. Meantime, Clark, Jones, and Sipowicz interview the working girls, but none of them are cooperative, fearing the potential reprisal from Sergei. Sipowicz tries to bring Lt. Henry up to speed, but the lieutenant is more interested in getting his new gadget working. In the coffee room, John Irvin tells Sipowicz that all the recent change in the squad is making him decide to put in for a transfer in the hopes that he can find another squad where he can feel like he is a part of things, like he used to feel here. Murphy and Ortiz reinterview Adeeb Amar about what Ibrahim told him. They try to get him to admit that his wife wasn't the woman that he thought she was. He responds by refusing to talk to them any further. Some Chinese food was delivered to the squad in honor of Medavoy's retirement. Sipowicz, Clark and Jones go back to the pokey room to reinterview the woman "Varenka," that BCI identified as Sergei's sister, Dasha. They convince her to help them safely bring her brother in and with it they manage to bring Sergei into custody with only a few shots fired. Ortiz brings in a translation of their victim's last entry in her diary. Her death was self-inflicted. They bring the information to her husband, who insists that they charge him with her death only so that her family doesn't find out that she had taken her own life. At the hospital Sipowicz brings a photo array to Bale for identification and he can't positively ID Sergei. Bale then asks Sipowicz if he wants him to make the call to the Chief of Detectives about taking the squad over. Sipowicz tells Bale that if he is comfortable making the call, he will take the job. Back at the squad, Sipowicz tells Jones and Clark that Bale couldn't make a positive ID and that they should go ahead and conduct the interview without him, since it is their case. Looking for advice Murphy and Ortiz run the complication of their case for Sipowicz, who makes a great suggestion to them. Then the three of them run it by Lt. Henry, who not wanting to be bogged down with all the details (he's a big picture guy), tells them to do what Sipowicz suggested. Clark and Jones get Sergei to admit to shooting Bale, claiming that it was self-defense. Later that night the members of the 15 Squad celebrate the retirement of Greg Medavoy (amongst others). The Chief of Detectives, who is at the event, stops by their table and takes Sipowicz aside. They discuss the phone call that the Chief received from Bale recommending Sipowicz taking over the squad. Sipowicz makes a convincing argument that makes the Chief of Detectives determine that he will be all right for the job.moreless

      Ortiz and Murphy arrived on the scene of a shooting, where two of Sipowicz's men were involved in chasing down a suspect, who got away after he able to shoot one of the officers. Back at the squad, Sipowicz tells the pair about a possible witness to the crime that he saw while they were all still at the scene, an elderly woman sitting at her window. Even though it is Medavoy's last day on the job, Sipowicz doesn't feel like getting his picture taken. With Medavoy leaving Clark is now partnered with Jones and together they go to the scene of crime, where a woman, Deborah Olshan, was beaten to death in her home, a possible victim of a robbery. At the scene they interview Maxine Annunziato, her friend and the one who discovered the body. Murphy and Ortiz talk with the woman that Sipowicz identified as a probable witness to the shooting of the officers. She tells them that she saw the officers enter the building, but she didn't see them chasing anyone. Clark and Jones return to the squad to find Barry Olshan and his attorney waiting for him. They talk with him and he goes over his wife's normal routine. Since there was no obvious sign of forced entry they begin pursuing a line of questioning regarding his business. Also the fact that he has brought his attorney along with him raises some questions in their mind. Clark and Jones interview employees at the jewelry store. One of them opens up about the behavior of Debbie Olshan and her friend, Maxine Annunziato. Ortiz and Murphy meet Off. Perez at the hospital to go through the sequence of events. His recounting is different than that of the woman from across the street. Clark and Jones go back to talk with Maxine Annunziato about the last time she was with her friend. She tells them about a business deal they had going to open a salon and they discussed that. She tells about a man Debbie called "Russian Mike" that they met from time to time when they would go out to the clubs together. "Russian Mike" was interested in the diamond that she wore. On the way back through the precinct lobby, Clark stops and talk with Sipowicz about the current case. When asked about working with Jones, Clark says he thinks its okay, but he tells Sipowicz he'd rather be working with him, something that Sipowicz tells him he doesn't want to hear again. Clark and Jones find out where to find "Russian Mike". Murphy and Ortiz talk with Off. Donatelli about the sequence of events. His story matches the one Perez gave them, but neither matches the description of the witness. When confronted with that information Donatelli starts to become uncooperative. Back at the squad Ortiz comments that she suspects that Donatelli's wife knows something and she believes they should go back and try to talking with her alone. Medavoy is still taking photos on his last day. Jones and Clark return to the squad and ask Bale to join them on hitting the apartment of "Russian Mike." By having Bale come along they don't have to deal with the headache of dealing with Emergency Service. Jones asks Medavoy if he'd like to come along. The detectives enter the apartment, but Bale who is still in the hallway is shot by someone fleeing into the hallway from another apartment. At the hospital the Chief of Detectives, Duffy, has arrived on the scene and he tells Sipowicz to get "out of the bag" and "back in the suit" and start working the case of Bale's shooting. Back at the squad, Barry Olshan comes back in without his attorney and confesses that he uses his business to redistribute money. He tells them about a business dealing he had with Lenny Russo and Maxine Annunziato. He recent embracing of his religion with his wife was having him put a stop to his illegal activities, which also meant he wasn't going to back the hair salon they wanted to open. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Donatelli's wife and she tells them that her husband has terminal cancer, that he didn't want anyone to know about. Back in the suit, Sipowicz tells "Russian Mike" that he will tell him the name of the man who shot Bale. After some convincing, "Russian Mike" gives him the name Sergei Yesenin and he tells them what little he knows about Sergei's possible whereabouts. # Clark and Jones interview Lenny Russo about his possible deal with Barry Olshan, which leads to them getting him to confess to trying to rob the apartment. Debbie Olshan walked in on the middle of the robbery and attacked him. He tells them that Maxine Annunziato gave him all the information he needed to commit the robbery, implicating her. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Perez about what they know about Donatelli's cancer. Perez tells them that they were just trying to look out for Donatelli's family by getting him ¾ quarters of his pension for a line of duty shooting. They talk with Sipowicz, who tells them that an accidental shooting would entitle him to the same thing. He agrees to help them work the paperwork out to Donatelli's advantage. Clark and Jones reinterview Maxine Annunziato about what Lenny Russo told him and what they know. Bale is out of surgery and stable. Following up on the shooter, "Russian Mike"'s information was good but they still haven't located Sergei Yesenin. With all that was going on, everyone has forgotten that it was Medavoy's last day. Sipowicz talks with him and tells him that despite what is currently going on he should still take advantage of his opportunity to have something to go to. Sipowicz "out of the bag" finally agrees to take a photo, with Medavoy.moreless
    • The detectives arrive on the scene of shooting outside of a school. The victim is Lester Bakewell, a sergeant in the US Army who was at the school to do recruitment. Also on the scene is another sergeant named Sipowicz, who is there with his uniform officers. Clark takes the opportunity to bust the new sergeant's balls. A woman, Denise Campo, comes in to report her great uncle has missing for four days. Jones and Medavoy take the case and she tells them that he is homeless and that he is just a sweet old man. She gives them a picture of her uncle. An Army warrant officer Steve Nutting from CID is in Bale's office, he is going to assist in the investigation. Clark and Nutting interview the dean of students from the school. The dean tells them about the peaceful demonstrations against recruiters, but he also tells them about Paul Corbelli, one of the students whose brother was killed in Iraq four months ago. He does know that the boy had access to a rifle and that according to the boy's father, he is a good shot. Down in the precinct lobby Sipowicz brings Jones and Medavoy's attention to "King Tut" who is wearing clothing similar to that shown in the recent photo Denise Campo had of her great uncle. They talk to "King Tut" and finally get out of him that he had obtained the clothing from a body he found in a dumpster. Paul Corbelli is questioned by Clark and Nutting. They ask him about the rifle, his brother's death and if he'd ever been out of the country. Nutting takes a get tough approach in the interview and Clark dials him back. At the dumpster, it's up to Medavoy to get in and search the contents. After getting covered with garbage, he uncovers the body. Back in the 15 Squad, Sipowicz has brought something upstairs and wants to know what's up with Clark's case and whether anyone has been assigned to his desk yet. Brigid Scofield is waiting for Medavoy when he returns; of course he arrives still reeking from the garbage. In the coffee room she makes him on offer to consider, she hands him a real estate card with his name on it. Ed Corbelli comes in for questioning; he tells them that his son is innocent. He tells them Paul's brother was someone that Paul looked up. He agrees to let them look at his rifle and Paul's computer. He tells them that Paul would never do anything to cause someone to go through what he had been going through. Clark and Nutting talk with a friend of Bakewell and he tells them about a relationship that Bakewell was having with another sergeant, named Angela Payson. Jones and Medavoy break the news to Denise Campo about her great uncle's death. They don't know if it is a homicide yet, but they ask her if she knows any connection between her great uncle and the restaurant. His body was found in the dumpster behind the restaurant, but he also had a matchbook for the place in his possession. Clark and Nutting run their difference of opinion on the case by Bale, and Bale supports Clark's position. Sipowicz tells Jones and Medavoy about a complaint a couple of his officers took last week regarding the manager of the restaurant and a homeless guy who matches the description of their victim. Sgt. Payson comes in for an interview with Clark and Nutting. She admits to having the affair with the victim and also tells them that her husband knew about it and that they are separated with a divorce pending. She also tells them that her husband is ex-military. Jones and Medavoy talk with the manager of the restaurant. The manager is disgusted that with all that is going on in the city, that the police are looking into the death of a homeless man. Sgt. Sipowicz goes out on the street to mediate a dispute between a uniform and a man that he has written a ticket for. Carl Payson comes in for questioning. He seems at ease with the declining state of his marriage and speaks very matter of fact about his current relationship with his wife and the last time he had encountered her lover. Jones and Medavoy talk with the hostess from the restaurant. She recognizes the victim, but not from his fight with the manager, but rather from his hanging around the kitchen and his interaction with Nestor Duarte, the buy who cleans the restaurant overnight. Clark comes down to talk with Sipowicz about his feelings on the case versus Nutter's. Sipowicz suggests that they go back at the woman again, using the possible prosecution of the kid as a lever to see if anything else pries loose. He also tells him not to sandbag his partner. Jones and Medavoy go to talk with Nestor Duarte and he tells them about the relationship he had with the victim, he would give the old man food for helping him out with cleaning. The old man died one night while sleeping in the back of the restaurant. Worried that the restaurant would find out what he had been doing with the old man, he took the man's body and put it in the dumpster. Clark and Nutting run their scenario about the kid by Sgt. Payson. She gives them some additional information about the mindset of her husband, who is really having a hard time with their pending divorce. She also tells them that he has a rifle. The ME report comes back that the old man died of a brain aneurysm. Carl Payson is back for questioning about his real state of mind regarding the divorce and the rifle that they found in the trunk of his car. Clark appeals to his sense of honor to tell the truth and he capitulates and admits to the crime. Clark gives the status to Bale and then informs the Corbelli family. Paul Corbelli tells Nutting that if he talks to the family of the victim, to please tell them that he is really sorry, especially if Bakewell had a younger brother. Jones and Medavoy tell Denise Campo about the circumstances surrounding her great uncle's death. After she leaves, Jones asks Medavoy if they should "call it a day." And Medavoy decides it is time to do just that, he tells Jones that he is going to put in his papers and take the opportunity that Brigid Scofield has offered him. He goes into Bale's office to make it official. Sipowicz comes back upstairs to find out how the case went and finds out from Murphy and Ortiz that he is missed.moreless

      Episode 16
      2/1/05
      7.8
      Sipowicz and Clark arrive at the home of an 80-year-old millionaire, Hugh Rasmussen, who was smothered to death. They talk to the man's secretary, Judith Howell, a middle-aged woman, who found the body. Then the wife, Amy Rasmussen arrives back home; she's come back from the gym and she is young enough (28-years-old) to be the victim's granddaughter. She acknowledges the comments that her husband has been thought about as a dirty old man and that she may be considered a gold digger, but as far as she's concerned they can all go straight to hell, she loved her husband. Sipowicz and Clark run the basics of what they know so far by Bale and Bale notes to Sipowicz that today is the day of his promotion and he offers his congratulations. Jones and Medavoy go to a retirement home, where Olive Rosenthal was found dead. The doctor found a suspicious needle mark on the woman's body. The director of the home wants the detectives to avoid talking to the other residents, but they tell her that will be impossible during a homicide investigation. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Rasmussen's attorney to find out the financial arrangements between the old man and his young wife, she stood to inherit $60 million if he died while they were still together. He also tells about one relationship he knows that wife had that resulted in her getting her husband to buy that man a truck. He gives them the name Richard Pencava. Medavoy and Jones talk with Nora Rosenthal, daughter of their victim. The woman suspects that her mother's caregiver Eleanor Jackson, whom the detectives met at the home, is responsible at the very least she suspects Eleanor Jackson of stealing from her mother. The detectives tell that without probable cause they won't be able to get a search warrant. Nora Rosenthal, who is a state Supreme Court judge, tells them who she is and that she knows what it takes to get a warrant. At the retirement home Medavoy and Jones interview one of Olive Rosenthal's fellow residents, Belle. When Enid enters the room, they find out that Belle is angry with Enid for not being upset about the morning's events. Sipowicz and Clark find Richard Pencava and ask him about his relationship with Amy Rasmussen, having found a quantity of cocaine in his possession, they bring him in. Munson has brought in a search warrant for Medavoy and Jones to execute on Eleanor Jackson's home. Clark wants to know if Munson is available for lunch, but she can't make it because she is scheduled to have lunch with her father. She suggests that he join them, only so that it doesn't become another career counseling session for her. Bale wants to know if Sipowicz has thought about what he wants to do after his promotion. Sipowicz hadn't considered it, but when Bale suggests that he can make a call to see if Sipowicz can be retained on patrol he is agreeable to that circumstance. Sipowicz and Clark begin their interview of Richard Pencava; they want to know why he was seeing Amy Rasmussen. He tells them about a building he was hoping that Amy could help him purchase. Seeing an opportunity Pencava suggests that the cocaine charges might be dropped against him if he testifies against Amy Rasmussen, who he implies may have wanted her husband dead. Eleanor Jackson is interviewed by Jones and Medavoy and she tells them that she was given most of those items by the victim. She only admits to taking a bracelet, and that was only after she had been yelled at on the phone by Nora Rosenthal, a woman who barely seemed to care for her mother. She only visited about once a month. At lunch, Munson and Clark listen as her father does what she hoped to avoid, offer her career advice. It causes her discomfort and she leaves the table. The toxicology screen comes back on Olive Rosenthal; she was killed by the same drugs used by veterinarians to euthanize pets. Amy Rasmussen is brought in for questioning and she tells them about her relationship with Richard Pencava, but she also tells them about her past as a strung out call girl and how she met her husband and fell in love with the man who helped her get rehabilitated. Clark doesn't believe Amy Rasmussen is guilty, but Sipowicz thinks he might be thinking with a different head. Clark suggests that they talk to the victim's brother, to investigate the trust angle. Owen Munson comes into the squad with an offer for Clark; he offers him the possibility for some bodyguard work that would pay $1000 day. Clark tells him depending on what is going on here at work, he will consider the offer. Jones and Medavoy want a warrant to search Enid's room at the retirement home, it turns out she is a retired veterinarian. Sipowicz and Clark find their victim's brother, Jerry Rasmussen at an OTB. He tells them about his relationship with his brother, and his brother's first wife. He talks about the secretary and the only time she was ever nice to him when just after the death of his brother's first wife. He had the impression that she thought she was first in line to marry her boss. Amy came into the picture less than a year later. Jones and Medavoy interview Enid, and she tells them that she was tired of making adjustments, that Olive was a needy thing who took her friend Belle away from her. She wanted things to go back to the way they were before Olive arrived. Sipowicz gets a call; he tells everyone that he is going to be retained on patrol at the 15th. Munson arrives and Clark tells her about her father's visit and offer that he was considering. She tells him that her father is only doing this to manipulate her with his own agenda, which likely doesn't include her going out with someone like Clark. Despite knowing that Enid was guilty of killing her mother, Nora Rosenthal still wants to press charges against Eleanor Jackson, but the detectives and Bale convince her otherwise. Sipowicz and Clark go back to talk with Judith Howell, who shows them a scrapbook she has made of Hugh Rasmussen's career. They go over her timeline and indicate to her that they know she was at the Rasmussen home an hour before she said she arrived. They press her about the fact that she didn't get the reward for her years of dedicated service, loyalty and sacrifice. She tells them about Rasmussen's plan to make some changes, if she couldn't be civil to his wife, which pushed her into smothering him to death. Clark tells Amy Rasmussen about Judith Howell's guilt and that Richard Pencava was ready to send her away if he could deal his way out of the cocaine charge. Sipowicz gets into his dress blues and proceeds downstairs to the lobby, where all the members of the 15th precinct salute him.moreless
    • La Bomba
      Episode 15
      1/25/05
      7.1
      Sipowicz and Clark arrive on the scene of a car bombing. The victim's daughter, Elizabeth Keenan, is on the scene and she addresses the detectives in a very cool businesslike manner when answering their questions and giving them information about her father. Back at the squad they run the case by Bale and Munson; the Feds, the DA and the Chief of Detectives is interested because of a possible terrorist implication of the bomb. The other detectives break up the list of past and present employees of Brett Keenan's company to checkout; meanwhile Murphy and Ortiz are sent off to a homicide in an alley. Their victim is Garrett Tinsley, a 17-year-old boy from a private school. The man who found the body tells them that the victim was a real asshole. Medavoy and Jones interview Phil Beckett, one of the former employees of Brett Keenan's company. He appears successful and indicates that he left the company on good terms. He tells them about Keenan's trouble with a bodyguard on a trip to Colombia last year. For any follow-up questions, he gives them his cell phone number where he is reachable 24 hours a day. Murphy and Ortiz interview Garrett Tinsley's parents, who tell them that their son did smoke pot. They also find out that the maid's son has his tuition to the private school paid for by the Tinsleys an idea they cite as being one of Garrett's. Jones comes up with the name of the bodyguard that Brett Keenan had trouble with in Colombia. Sipowicz and Clark go out and pickup the well armed bodyguard for questioning. Murphy and Ortiz talk with the headmaster of the private school and he tells them about their zero-tolerance drug policy and also comes forth with a story about Garret's indiscretion with another female student named Quinnie Stein. The bodyguard admits to knowing how to make explosives but that he was fired for sleeping with Elizabeth Keenan. No big deal, 1-2-3 he gets another job. Murphy and Ortiz interview Quinnie Stein, the girl who had inappropriate sexual behavior with Garrett. When pressed that they are going to begin digging into the past of everyone Garrett ever knew, she admits to that inappropriate behavior and also tells them that Garrett got his pot from someone named Serge. They go to Serge's apartment and while Ortiz questions him, Murphy noses around until she finds his "botanical garden" of marijuana plants. Elizabeth Keenan comes in for questioning and Sipowicz and Clark ask her about her relationship with the bodyguard. They want to ask her about the employees on the list, but she is more interested in who knew about the bodyguard. They tell her it was Phil Beckett and she tells them that he was one of the first to go when her father was clearing out the "deadwood." The detectives go to Phil Beckett's home where they meet his wife and convince her that they need to get into the garage to find some old business records. Clark finds a substance that could be used to make a bomb. They tell Mrs. Beckett that they haven't been able to get hold of her husband, he's not answering any of phones and that she is going to need to come with them to the precinct. Back at the squad, Murphy and Ortiz begin their interview of Serge who tells the pot was being used for medical purposes. When given a deal, Serge admits to fronting Garrett five pounds of pot a month, which he was holding portions of in Javier Garcia's locker at school. Quinnie Stein comes back to the squad to admit to Murphy and Ortiz that she held back information about Garrett getting her pregnant and the subsequent abortion she had received, with the assistance of the Tinsley's maid, Inez Garcia. Murphy and Ortiz go to the Tinsley home and interview Inez Garcia about her son's suspension, his relationship with Garrett and her participation in the abortion. Ortiz stresses to her that she is going to need to find her son and bring him in; otherwise they have to consider him a fugitive. Bale advises Sipowicz and Clark that they should have gotten a warrant before searching the garage, having consent would probably not hold up in court. Sipowicz reminds him that before the search they had nothing, but now they have something and Bale reminds them that they better get a confession. Sipowicz, Clark and Munson convince Mrs. Beckett that her husband might be in danger and that she needs to help them find her husband. She calls her husband's cell phone, while they locate his signal. They track Phil Beckett down, only to find that the seemingly successful businessman driving a cab. Inez Garcia brings her son in and Ortiz and Murphy have a talk with him. Javier admits to hitting Garrett, after telling the detectives how Garrett had been treating him as an employee, but what angered him more was the way Garrett had been treating his mother, a woman who raised him all his life (more so than his own parents did). Sipowicz and Clark talk with Phil Beckett, who tells them he is driving a cab to pick up on the trends. When presented with the fact that they now know he made the bomb, Beckett admits to it, but cites his wife's health concern and Keenan's unwillingness to help as his motivation.

      7.1
      The owner of a diner, Gene Stratis, has been stabbed to death and Sipowicz and Clark interview the victim's son. The son gives them his father's background, a real immigrant's success story, but he tells them nothing that would indicate his father should be the victim of murder. Ortiz's aunt comes to the squad to talk to her about her cousin, Paula. Ortiz's cousin has started hanging out with someone that her aunt isn't comfortable with and it is causing her daughter's behavior to change. Ortiz promises her aunt that she will stop by where her cousin works and check in on her and her new boyfriend, the owner of the business where she works. Sipowicz and Clark are going to run down a former employee of the diner who was let go last month. Jones and Medavoy are on the scene of a murder of public relations man, Paul Westerville at a parking garage. While looking into the victim's affects, Jones finds a picture of Brendan Quinn, a recently paralyzed cop that he went to the academy with. Paul Westerville was doing the PR for the PBA (Policeman's Benevolence Association). Back at the precinct, Jones and Medavoy meet with Brendan Quinn and his father Charlie, who is also retired off of the job. Neither of them can offer any insight onto why Westerville might have been killed for any reason other than a straight up robbery. Out on the street, Sipowicz and Clark chase down the diner's ex-employee. Medavoy and Clark talk to the assistant of Paul Westerville and she tells them that he wasn't very well liked. She tells them that Westerville had been sleeping with the wife of the paralyzed cop and the cop's father knew about it, because she had told him. Ortiz stops by to see her cousin and meets her boyfriend Bobby Friedman. She hears about their plans to go to Atlantic City that evening. Sipowicz and Clark interview the former employee of the diner. He tells them about how he was fired, kissing his girlfriend. He tells them about the victim's girlfriend and the fact that he told him that he would take insurance policies out on them to "keep them in line." Murphy asks Ortiz if she wants to go to lunch, but Ortiz is busy doing a background check on her cousin's boyfriend. Murphy tells Sipowicz and Clark about some children's videos their victim had recently rented on his credit card. Medavoy and Jones talk with Sheila Quinn about her relationship with Paul Westerville. They ask if anything was going on between her and Westerville. She tells them about her weak moments and that she loves her husband more than ever, it's just that Westerville helped her to fulfill her other needs. She doesn't believe anyone else knew about her relationship with Westerville and she asks if her husband ever has to find out. Jones says "Let's hope not." Sipowicz and Clark interview Margot Wylie about her relationship with Gene Stratis. She (along with many other of the victim's girlfriends) had an insurance policy in her name. Citing the video rental, the detectives ask her if she and her 10-year-old daughter had gone to Stratis' apartment last night. She tells them that she would never take her daughter to his apartment because of his behavior around her. She then further confesses that she drew the line at penetration with her daughter. They hold her to check her alibi, but the new information about Stratis' sexual proclivity gives them something new to pursue. Bale asks for a rundown of the Jones and Medavoy case, but they hold back on telling him what angle they are starting to pursue. Then Bale calls Ortiz into his office, wanting to know why she ran Bobby Friedman through BCI without a case number. Ortiz tells him about the bad feeling she got after meeting her cousin's boyfriend and Bale further confirms her suspicions by telling her that he is under investigation by a joint narcotics taskforce. Then Ortiz talks to an old friend from narcotics and finds out that they are planning on taking Bobby Friedman down in Atlantic City this evening, for his trafficking in Ecstasy. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Melanie Stratis about her relationship with her father. She tells them about the sexual abuse her put her through as a child and that her mother and brother were both in denial of the situation, a situation which caused her to run away and ultimately wind-up going to boarding school. She tell them that her daughter has never met her grandfather, and now thankfully never will. Ortiz tells Murphy about her cousin. Murphy volunteers to pick her up and put her into a holding cell for the evening and that will cause her to miss the trip to Atlantic City. Sipowicz and Clark interview Gene Stratis' wife and she is still in denial of the charges her daughter alleged against her father. She tells them that only recently her granddaughter has been allowed to occasionally stay with either her or her uncle. She stayed with her uncle as recently as yesterday. Out on the street Murphy and Lisa (from Anti-Crime) grab up Ortiz's cousin coming out of the subway and take her in for possession. Jones and Medavoy interview Charlie Quinn about his relationship with Paul Westerville and about his whereabouts yesterday. Despite evidence that his car was in the parking garage, Charlie Quinn denies having any knowledge of his vehicle being in Manhattan. They also ask him about what Westerville's assistant had told them about her telling him about the affair. Charlie Quinn says she must be mistaken. He offers to let them check his guns, check the security tapes, he tells them that he didn't do it and he offers to stick around until they decide what to do next. What Jones and Medavoy do next is to talk to Bale who tells him that he will run what they got by the DA's office. Ortiz talks with her cousin about her arrest and promises her she is only going to have to stay there overnight. Her cousin asks her to tell her mother that she is sorry. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Alex Stratis about his taking care of his niece yesterday and whether or not she had seen her grandfather. He admits to having brought her to see her grandfather and when he returned he found her sitting on the couch telling him that her underpants were on backwards. He tells them about what happened afterwards when he confronted his father and eventually stabbed him to death. Bale runs the Westerville case by Munson, who doesn't believe they have enough to convict Charlie Quinn, a retired cop who is the father of a hero cop. She is going to need much more. Bales tells Jones, who agrees to let Charlie Quinn go. Melanie Stratis comes into find about her brother's situation and they tell him what he has told them. She wants to see her brother now, so that he can know that isn't angry with him with for what he did. Jones goes to dinner with Brendan Quinn and his wife. Afterwards Brendan tells Baldwin that he talk with his wife and his father. He knows that his wife loves him and that she has needs that he knows he will never be able to fulfill and if she needs to get them filled somewhere, he rather allow her to do that than risk losing her.moreless

      Ortiz is still working undercover at one of the AA meetings and she is approached by a man who wants her to sell her hair. Then another man at the meeting, Justin Deroos asks her out to breakfast, but an interruption by a new potential sponsor for Ortiz interrupts his invitation. Sipowicz, who is also at the same meeting gets a call, they have another related homicide on their hands to respond to. Ortiz and Sipowicz arrive at the scene and join the others in the investigation. Sipowicz and Clark interview the victim's sister, her sister's story fits the pattern of AA victims. Back at the squad Ortiz floats the theory that the perp might also be a woman, as the woman who approached her at the morning's meeting seemed like she could be more than capable of strangling someone. Jones takes a call on another homicide; Bale assigns Clark to work with him so that Sipowicz can remain working on the taskforce. Clark and Jones go to the scene and find that the victim is Steve McClintock, the male nurse who was allowed to go free a couple of months ago when it was discovered that Clark had slept with the prime witness against him, Carly Landis. At the scene they find evidence of drugs. Carly Landis is brought in for questioning; she tells them that she hasn't been in contact with McClintock lately. She also tells them that she knows he was in need of money and probably had begun distributing drugs again. After the interview she talks to Clark about what happened with the trial and wants him to know that she is not the person that he thinks she is. The drugs found at McClintock's apartment were high end steroids. From the AA victim's diary, a name of Roger is discovered as someone worth talking to, as his record shows a history of domestic violence. Sipowicz and Medavoy leave to bring him in; meanwhile Jones and Clark have gone to a health club, where they talk to a competitive bodybuilder about the phone call he had recently had with McClintock. The bodybuilder quietly confesses to them about his need for steroids, but doesn't give the detectives any reason to think he was responsible for McClintock's murder. Sipowicz and Medavoy interview Roger Harborn; he wasn't with their victim, but has a hard time coming up with a solid alibi for his whereabouts last night. Sipowicz knows it was because he was drinking last night. Munson asks Clark to lunch and he tells her that he can't as he is tied up with the McClintock case. He tells her what they know so far and the fact that he has already talked to Carly Landis, whom Munson reminds him proved to be untrustworthy. They agree to do lunch on another day. Jones tells Clark about the call he just got from Narcotics, they've caught a guy, Nathan Creek, who had a couple hundred doses of the steroid found in McClintock's apartment. Clark and Jones go to interview Creek, who admits to having stabbed McClintock when he attacked him; McClintock wasn't supposed to be there according to his accomplice in the crime, Carly Landis. Carly Landis is brought back for a reinterview. She denies have anything to do with Creek and she has a solid alibi for the morning. They run what they got by Munson to see if they can hold Carly Landis for a while, but she wants them to come up with more solid evidence before they waste anymore of her time. Roger Harborn still hasn't come up with any client names, but he recounts to Sipowicz and Medavoy the story of what he did do with their victim yesterday. When he had started drinking at a restaurant, she had left him. He doesn't remember much after that, as doesn't remember anything until the state trooper woke him up this morning. Medavoy receives a gift from Brigid Scofield. Clark runs the state of their case for Bale, telling him that they are still trying to get evidence that proves that Carly Landis setup the break-in by Nathan Creek. As for the other case, despite Harborn's alibi starting to prove out Bale wants Harborn held, since they have no better suspect in hand. Jones and Clark interview another man who had placed a call to McClintock. He also brings up the name of Carly Landis. She had him arrange a meeting for this morning with McClintock, which would insure McClintock was there when Nathan Creek broke into the apartment. Back at the squad, the detectives are reviewing a tape of the people going into and out of one of the AA meetings. Ortiz recognizes the man who asked her out to breakfast that morning. Sipowicz brings Harborn in to look at the tape and he recognizes the man, whose name he says is Justin. He also tells them that he had seen Justin talking with their victim. Carly Landis is presented the evidence they've found and she admits to having set McClintock up. The taskforce strategize what they are going to do when and if Justin makes an appearance at one of tonight's meetings. They intend on luring him to a phony apartment, where they are going to apprehend him. At a meeting attended by Murphy and Medavoy, Justin makes his appearance. At the meeting, Murphy lays out her story for the group and after the meeting Justin approaches her. They begin talking and Justin talks her into considering trying to take just a little drink. She takes him back to the apartment and Justin tells her a story about his mother and he tells her that he is going to get rid of her, just like he did the others and he makes his move. Murphy makes her move right back and quickly subdues him. The detectives take him into custody. Back at the squad, Munson comes in and apologizes to Clark for her behavior earlier that day when she accused him and Jones of wasting her time. They agree to have dinner on Friday night. Sipowicz reports to Bale that Justin Deroos admitted to the four homicides and Bale tells him that he has heard the results of the sergeant's exam, Sipowicz's has passed. Bale asks him if he is ready to be a boss.moreless

      Faith Chandler, a hooker, was murdered in the apartment of a former madam. Chandler was working an AA program. The former madam gives Sipowicz and Clark the name, Bob Cavanaugh, a man she knows was one of the victim's clients. Brigid Scofield comes to the squad to see Medavoy about a possible apartment she's found for him. Caught a little off guard, he agrees to meet her at lunch to look at the apartment (that of course he doesn't really want, need or more importantly can afford). Murphy and Ortiz go to the scene of a woman, Tracy Llewellyn, who was found murdered. The landlord tells them that the woman's apartment was being paid for (in cash) by designer named Hal Matheson. Bob Cavanaugh comes in for questioning with Sipowicz and Clark. He admits to knowing Faith Chandler and having more than a business relationship with her but he hadn't seen her in two weeks. Murphy and Ortiz go to the Hal Matheson's design studio and meet his wife, Paige. When he calls into the studio, Paige lets him know that some nice and pretty detectives want to question him. Hal Matheson meets them at the precinct. They break the news to him about his lover's death. Matheson obviously doesn't want his wife know and they promise to try to keep it out of their investigation. A dump on Tracy Llewellyn's phone indicates that calls were made to the home of an Annabelle Matheson. Medavoy talks to Jones about his situation with Brigid Scofield. Jones tries to tell him that if she really likes him, she will be able to deal with the realities of his financial situation. Murphy and Ortiz see Matheson coming out of Annabelle's apartment, kissing her and the two kids. They stop him and bring him in for further questioning. He admits to them that he has two wives and tells him how he did that and having a girlfriend besides. Beside the ongoing murder investigation, the detectives want to hold him and also charge him with bigamy. He tells them that he isn't actually legally married to Annabelle. The AA sponsor of Faith Chandler comes into the squad with information for Sipowicz and Clark. She gives Sipowicz a list of names that the victim felt that she had hurt over the years. She also tells them about a guy that she had met at a meeting. Sipowicz tells her about his 8 years and gets her to tell him about a 5:00 PM that she had seen that man attend in the past. Murphy and Ortiz are back at the victim's apartment and find out from her answering machine that she was pregnant. They go to the clinic, where the receptionist tells about Tracy and Matheson's visit with the doctor and the fact that a private detective was also inquiring about the pair. Meanwhile back at the squad information comes in that Faith Chandler's death matches another one from the 9th precinct. Bale is going to find out if there any other homicides out that might fit this possible pattern. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Annabelle about her husband's whereabouts. She gives them his schedule, which matches his story. They tell her about her husband's infidelity with their victim and the fact that she was pregnant. Annabelle doesn't believe that her husband is capable of the crime. The detectives don't tell her about her husband's other wife. Sipowicz goes to the AA meeting and confronts Paul Hartley about his relationship with Faith Chandler. Medavoy starts to look at the apartment, but then does the honorable thing and confesses his financial difficulties. She asks if he has ever tried to do anything about that. He tells her the bouncer story, and she suggests that he consider trying real estate. She asks him to join him on the possible closing of a deal later that evening. He agrees to give it a try. Back at the squad, Murphy and Ortiz talk with the private investigator, who tells them that the woman who hired him Paige Matheson also inquired about the possibility of getting rid of Tracy Llewellyn. With a third case, a taskforce is going to be created to try and find a suspect and Bale is even authorizing overtime. Murphy and Ortiz go to the studio to collect Paige and bring her into the squad. They ask her what she knows about Tracy Llewellyn and her hiring of the private investigator and her attempt to hire him to get rid of her. Jones interrupts their interview to tell them that Paige's car went into the city at 3:15 AM that morning. They confront Paige about the car, and then they tell her about Annabelle, Matheson's other wife. Paige admits to having seen the victim in an attempt to convince her not to have the child. They get her to write up her story and tell her to get a good lawyer. When taking her out of the pokey room, Paige gets to meet Annabelle. Then they tell Annabelle who the woman was who attacked her and that she isn't legally married to Matheson. They break the news to Matheson that his wives know the truth, but despite not being legally married to him, Annabelle looks like she is going to be staying by his side. Medavoy and Brigid Scofield show off the property and Medavoy's advice to the husband seals the deal on the property. Now Brigid Scofield wants to take him out for a drink and see if Medavoy can close another deal. The task force convenes and Bale lays out the plan, the females will speak at the meetings and try to appear vulnerable. Murphy gets up and speaks at an AA Meeting with Clark watching and Sipowicz is doing the same with Ortiz at another meeting.moreless

      The detectives are on the roof of a parking garage, where an attorney has been found shot to death in his car and the apparent victim of a robbery. Medavoy is sporting a new shirt, which is a little bright in the other guys' eyes. Back at the squad, Sipowicz and Clark run the case by Bale. The murder might have been part of a pattern of robberies, since three similar robberies had been reported in that area, but this one was the first to result in a death. It's been two weeks, but the results of the sergeant's exam haven't been published yet. Medavoy gets more grief about his outfit, but both Murphy and John Irvin love it. Murphy and Ortiz are sent off to a schoolyard shooting and as Jones and Medavoy are departing, Medavoy suggests that they might make a detour if they pass a menswear shop. Murphy and Ortiz arrive at the shooting scene. The guys at the schoolyard are preparing for a basketball tournament. One of the players on the court, Tyler Newell, might be the next Lebron James. The detectives want to find out how to get hold of the organizer, Marcus Dayton. John Irvin gives Sipowicz and Clark information that there are a couple of "discrete" pickup bars located in the area of their homicide. Dr. Russell Fain, a dentist who was robbed in the suspected robbery pattern comes in and tells Sipowicz and Clark what little he remembers about his robbery from two months earlier. One of the victim's fellow attorneys won't say anything for sure about the sexual proclivity of his late colleague. The tournament director, Marcus Dayton, comes into talk with Murphy and Ortiz. Sipowicz tells them before their interview that Marcus Dayton was a known gambler and bookmaker in the past. Dayton doesn't know anything about any possible gang activity or gambling connections with his tournament. He suspects that Tyler Newell's older brother, someone who didn't make it to the big time, might be responsible for the shooting. At a men's store, Medavoy looks for a new shirt and Jones, who really doesn't want to be there, gives him some half-hearted advice on a new shirt and tie. Murphy and Ortiz talk to Stanley Newell about his relationship with his brother Tyler and with Marcus Dayton. He has no relationship with Marcus Dayton, but says that Marcus Dayton is out for Marcus Dayton and what it will mean for his brother's future remains to be seen. The gun used in the schoolyard shooting was used in a crime three years earlier committed by Lucas Benchley, only the gun was never recovered. Medavoy has lunch with Brigid Scofield and makes some noise that he might be looking for help finding an apartment in Manhattan. When his only credit card is declined, Medavoy is embarrassed when he finds he is unable to pay for lunch; fortunately she has him covered. Lucas Benchley, owner of the gun has come in for questioning. He tells Murphy and Ortiz that he sold the gun as soon as he got about of prison, to a guy named "Pee Wee." A hit off a print from the car is found belonging to a Kyle Tanner, someone who once went to prison for committing a robbery. Sipowicz and Clark leave to bring him back to the house for questioning; meanwhile Murphy and Ortiz find "Pee Wee." He tells them that he sold the gun to Tyler Newell and the person who sent Tyler to him was Marcus Dayton. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Kyle Tanner and they get his cooperation to look through his apartment for a gun, if anything just to prove he wasn't involved in the robbery. Sipowicz and Clark search Tanner's apartment and Sipowicz finds some credit cards stashed in the freezer. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Tyler Newell about his purchase of the gun. He bought it just to have on. He tells them that his brother Stanley has the gun now, since his grandmother had found it. His brother was mad at him for having it, saying it was going to mess up his life. Medavoy gets his credit card issue resolved. Sipowicz and Clark run the current state of their case by Bale and the dentist has returned to the squad to give them additional information about his robbery. He tells them about the guy he met at a bar and that he feels he should be able to identify his attacker. The dentist picks Kyle Tanner out of a lineup. Murphy and Ortiz bring Randolph back in. He tells them that he shot at his brother, in some kind of effort to prevent his brother from going down the same path he did, ultimately working for someone like Marcus Dayton and never getting the chance to make the pros. Murphy and Ortiz bring Stanley in to have a talk with his brother and Stanley is able to indicate to his brother that he has been working towards trying to be there for him. Sipowicz and Clark go back at Kyle Tanner with what they know from the lineup, but Tanner is counting on the fact that the guys he has robbed won't testify against him in open court. After some convincing on Sipowicz's behalf, Tanner confesses to shooting the attorney. Sipowicz goes into Bale's office and tells him the status of the case and he also drops a credit card he found in Tanner's apartment on Bale's desk. The credit card belongs to Bale. Murphy and Ortiz try to get Munson to be lenient in the schoolyard shooting, Bale with something else on his mind tells them to work it out amongst themselves. Munson's boyfriend calls and has to cancel his accompanying her to a function, if she goes to the function unescorted; she knows the judge is going to want to put his "learned hands" all over her. Clark volunteers to be her escort for the evening. Medavoy goes in search of the right type of flowers to send to Brigid Scofield, along with a card and $100 to pay for lunch. At the party Clark comes to Munson's aid when the lecherous judge is putting on a full court press. Bale quizzes Sipowicz to find out what he plans on doing with the information he has about him. Sipowicz tells him that he has nothing to tell anyone.moreless

      Sipowicz reports for the sergeant's exam and finds he is the oldest taker of the test. The detectives are on the scene of a death of the brother of a mentally disabled man. Medavoy makes small talk about the exam, which causes Sipowicz to leave with Clark and go up and talk with victim's brother Martin Schweiss. The interview with Martin doesn't go well; the brother thinks that his brother is with his girlfriend and he asks the detectives if they have any weed. Kathleen Halloran, the woman caring for the brother tells them what she knows about the victim's girlfriend, Elena Lozada, including the fact that the girlfriend they recently had a big fight with the victim about Martin. Jones and Medavoy are redirected to investigate an assault case. They arrive on the scene to find two tenants trying to move into the same apartment. They give Jones and Medavoy all the information they have on the man, Jerome King, who rented them the apartment, which the detectives are going to pursue. As for the tenants, neither will get the apartment, nor will any of the other tenants who just arrived on the scene to claim the apartment. Bale gets the status of the cases, and asks Sipowicz about the exam, but Sipowicz is reluctant to discuss it with anyone. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Elena Lozada and she tells them about the fights she had with her boyfriend about his brother Martin. She wanted Martin to be moved to group home, before they could start a life together. She also tells them about a neighborhood drug dealer named Ricky C. that the victim had a scuffle with. Back at the squad the detectives find out who this dealer is and Sipowicz and Clark are going to pick him up. A good looking realtor, Brigid Scofield, comes into the squad, which immediately gets Medavoy's attention, which is a good thing since she is looking to talk to him and Det. Jones. Normally she only deals in sales, but agreed to help Jerome King with this rental property. Jerome King, because he wasn't a US Citizen convinced her to forgo the usual credit check if he put up additional security, which is going to make her libel when the tenants decide to sue. After she leaves, Medavoy makes a comment to Jones that indicates he has a decided interest in Miss Scofield. Sipowicz and Clark grab Ricky Carson while he is conducting a sale. They get both Carson and his buyer. Jones and Medavoy are awaiting results of fingerprints found in the rental fraud apartment and are now leaving to pick up with the woman who had placed the ad for the apartment. Sipowicz and Clark are interviewing Ricky Carson, while Ortiz processes the buyer Bobby Halliday. Ricky Carson tells Sipowicz and Clark what explained himself to their victim about the business he was conducting with his brother "Ozone" (Martin). He indicates he would never result to violence to make a point; something his record will later validate. Bobby Halliday's father comes into the squad, he is worried about the affect going to central booking is going to have on his 17-year-old son, who in his mind is still "just a kid." The father asks the detectives "what's it gonna to take to make this go away." Lt. Bale invites the man into his office, where he cements a deal. Only the father doesn't know that Bale intends on getting IAB involved and when Bale wears a wire during their transaction the father is going to be arrested. The detectives think Bale is going overboard in his treatment of a man who was just trying to get his kid out of a bad situation. Bale gets wired up. Sipowicz tries to talk to him about his managerial style, but Bale throws Sipowicz's record and reputation back at him. Jones and Medavoy talk with Alyssa Pelican about her relationship with Jerome King. He used her computer to set up his apartment scam. They show her a picture, which she identifies as being Jerome King, but they tell her that it is Eddie Palm and they tell him about Eddie's past. She is in denial and doesn't want to cooperate with them any further, as a possible accessory to the crime they put her in the cage. Cort Halliday returns to the squad and Bale takes him into coffee room to conduct the deal, only Cort Halliday doesn't recall any discussion of bringing in $5000. Bale becomes outraged at this turn of events; he presses Halliday to tell him who got to him, "was it Sipowicz?" Halliday doesn't reveal who tipped him off. After he leaves, Bale goes back into the squad room and begins to go off on Sipowicz, who denies any knowledge of getting to Halliday. Clark points out to Bale that anyone could have warned Halliday. Alyssa Pelican is finally ready to talk and she tells them all about Jerome King's dealings and his ability to never pay for anything. She agrees to help them trap King. Word comes back the detectives from a neighbor that Martin and his brother had been fighting a lot recently. They also know that Martin's brother had found a group home to send his brother to in Poughkeepsie. They decide to bring him in for further questioning. Martin comes in with Kathleen Halloran, who reaffirms to Sipowicz that she was with Martin every minute yesterday. She is little worried that the detectives are planning to interview Martin on his own. Jones and Medavoy grab up "Jerome King," and Alyssa plants a well placed slap across his face. Sipowicz and Clark reinterview Martin, who tells them that Kathleen wasn't with him the entire time. They ask him if Kathleen asked him to lie; the only thing he tells them that she wanted him to lie about was their relationship. He admits to having hit his brother in the past, but was always sorry about it. Meanwhile, Jones and Medavoy begin their interview with "Jerome King," who, in light of all the evidence and witnesses they have, admits to really being Eddie Palm, just before a ten second countdown expires. He also tells them where they can find the money. Sipowicz and Clark go back to interview Kathleen, who admits to her relationship with Martin and admits to killing Martin's brother over the fact that he, was going to send Martin away, rather than let her care for him. Medavoy finds the real estate agent and informs her as to the status of the case; the good news is that most all of the money is going to be able to be returned to the tenants. He tries to make a little small talk and manages to get a drink invitation. After Bale goes home for the evening, John Irvin pulls out some anonymous flowers that were delivered to Ortiz. She admits to Sipowicz and Clark that she told Halliday about what Bale was planning to do. Social services arrives to take custody of Martin, and he asks Sipowicz, who he finally seems to recognize to accompany him.moreless

      Sipowicz is still studying for the sergeant's exam. Medavoy's trial is today. Jones is still looking for Michael, he's been in e-mail contact with him, but Michael doesn't want to be found by his real father. Murphy and Ortiz go off to investigate a molestation case. Jones goes to Craig Woodruff's apartment and after breaking into it, finds him there, dead. Sipowicz and Clark arrive on the scene and they need him to account for whereabouts. Bale wants him to voucher his three guns with the desk sergeant. Murphy and Ortiz go to the school and talk to the boy who was molested. The boy tells them that a man wanted his underwear for three DVDs. The man touched him. The boy was smart enough to get a license plate number of the van. Medavoy testifies in his trial, each side quickly presents their case, but Medavoy asks to speak on his own behalf and tells the story about him trying to help his daughter out. Jones comes back to the squad and wants to talk with Sipowicz and Clark. He went home to get his other gun, but couldn't find it; he suspect's that Michael may have taken it. After assuring them that he didn't use that gun in the crime, Sipowicz tells Jones to tell Bale that he turned all the guns over to him. Clark and Sipowicz talk with Craig Woodruff's landlord and he tells them a relationship that Woodruff might have had with a neighbor. They talk to the neighbor, Jocelyn Barker and she admits to having a relationship. They ask her for husband's name, so they can ask him some follow up questions and likely glean whether the husband was aware of the relationship and perhaps did something about it. Bale introduces Murphy and Ortiz to Det. Donnelly, who is working a case similar to theirs. He accompanies them to the church, where the brown van is registered. They meet the priest, Father McIntyre, an older man who transplanted to the city three years ago. He tells them who usually uses the van and where she can be found, running a soup kitchen. Det. Donnelly is a little suspicious of the priest; in the meantime, the detectives are going to have the van impounded. Back at the squad, Medavoy is awaiting the results of his trial. Michael's Aunt Tammy comes in and talks with Sipowicz and Clark. They inquire as to whether or not she has a gun; she admits that she and her husband have an unregistered firearm. Bale looks for an update from Sipowicz and Bale tells him they better find another suspect soon; otherwise they are going to have to look at Jones real hard. Jones tells Sipowicz and Clark about Michael using the e-mail account of one of his friends. He tells them that the friend and his parents are coming in for an interview. The ruling comes in on Medavoy's trial; he is guilty but is only given a 5 day rip. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the boy and his parent's; the boy has been in e-mail contact with Michael. They want him to tell them where Michael is; the boy eventually relents and tells them that Michael is staying at his brother's NYU dorm. They go to the dorm with Jones and find Michael there, with the missing gun. Murphy and Ortiz meet Lynn Cahill, the woman running the soup kitchen, and she doesn't have any knowledge of anyone else using the van, but agrees to contact them if anything out of the ordinary comes up. Clark and Sipowicz interview Michael about the gun and his whereabouts in the morning. Michael comments that the best thing his father ever did for him was to get himself killed. Det. Donnelly tells Murphy and Ortiz what he found out about Father McIntyre's past, he once had a sexual charge pending against. It gives them enough reason to want to speak to him again. A uniform has found a gun in Woodruff's building, giving Sipowicz and Clark reason to look at the building's tenants a little harder. Sipowicz and Clark interview Jocelyn Barker's husband and they press him into thinking that his wife is a suspect; but the man admits to committing the crime. He claims that even though his wife affair was over, Woodruff kept making reference to it. Murphy, Ortiz and Det. Donnelly interview Father McIntyre. The father is a little suspicious of their questions. They lay their cards on the table and Det. Donnelly starts to lay into McIntyre much harder, by bringing up his past. Murphy and Ortiz get him out of the room, just in time to, because Lynn Cahill comes into the squad to tell them about one of the attendees of the soup kitchen, someone that she found out has a copy of the key for the van. With this new information in hand, Ortiz asks Donnelly if he would like to let Father McIntyre go or should they. Donnelly responds by leaving and not saying a word. Jocelyn Barker comes into the squad, looking to talk to her husband. Medavoy returns and Bales comments that a 5 day rip is good and that he was right to go to trial; Medavoy goes into Bale's office and lays into him, accusing him of torture and committing an exercise out of the command and control playbook. Bale admits to nothing and tells Medavoy to go home and get some sleep. Sipowicz and Clark come out their interview with Jocelyn Barker's husband and tell her that they are going to begin processing her husband for the murder. She tells them that he husband is lying and that she killed Craig Woodruff. At the soup kitchen, Murphy and Ortiz get their suspect, who lawyers up the minute he determines what they are really after during their interview. The paperwork on the Woodruff murder is complete; it will be up to a grand jury to decide which Barker committed the crime. In the first sign of benevolence Bale decides that they can let the gun charge go away against Michael's aunt; he tells Sipowicz to change the 5. Det. Donnelly comes back to the squad to talk to Murphy and Ortiz and apologize for his unprofessional conduct earlier in the day, citing his own experience as an altar boy as the reason. He offers to take them to dinner and they accept. Sipowicz talks with Michael about his relationship with Jones; Michael believes that Jones is angry with him and will probably send him back to Social Services. He'd rather go back into the system than to have Baldwin mad at him. Jones comes into the room, ready to take Michael home.moreless

      Sipowicz is doing a little studying and Medavoy catches him; he confesses that he is studying for the sergeant's exam. Medavoy quips that Sipowicz's career is on the upswing, while his own is going down; he isn't sure what his future holds for him, Sipowicz reassures him that he is a good cop and he'll get through this. Jones is looking to take some lost time; the final custody determination hearing for Michael is set for this afternoon. Bale grants him the time to do what he needs to do and then Medavoy comes into his office to plead his case, but Bale isn't going to cut him any slack. The jury in the trial against Simon Kerensky is hung and the judge declares a mistrial. It will be necessary for Lucy Welker to testify again, only it probably won't happen until February. Faced with this new burden, Lucy wonders why no one else involved has to deal with this, she blurts out the name Ike, which is the name of Simon Kerensky's brother. Lucy tries to backtrack mentioning that name. In the precincts lobby, Jones asks a couple of fellow cops to help set up Craig Woodruff into making a drug buy and if it looks like it will take to long to pull off, perhaps the matter could be helped along with something being planted on Woodruff. They are reluctant to get involved and Jones tells them not to worry about it. Lucy Welker is briefed on how she will be protected for the near term. While she is being taken through the lobby when they are leaving they encounter Sipowicz, who is bringing Ike Kerensky in. The sighting makes Lucy Welker uncomfortable and she wants Det. Clark to bring her to see her doctor. Ike Kerensky doesn't believe that Lucy Welker has anything to worry about from his brother and he also has nothing but good things to say about him. While Clark and Lucy Welker are walking down the street, Clark spots a man who begins to fire on the pair. Clark shoots back and takes the gunman out and gets a partial plate number on the white Cadillac that drove away. He calls it in and his colleagues arrive to help assess the situation. Medavoy meets with his delegate and a trustee. The trustee recommends that he take the 30 day rip, but despite that advice Medavoy decides he is going to bear the burden of the trial room. Bobbi Kingston reports to Jones that Michael's father had attended his son's parent-teacher conference this morning. Despite the fact that Craig Woodruff didn't yet have the right to do it, his lawyer is probably going to use that to show the judge that he is taking an interest in his son. She tells him that school reported that Michael was upset by the situation and Jones who is frustrated by these events vents his feelings toward Bobbi, who has only been trying to help Jones and Michael through this situation. As she leaves she reminds him that she is not the enemy. As Sipowicz enters the precinct lobby, one of the cops that Jones had approached earlier tells him about what Jones had asked them to do to Craig Woodruff. Sipowicz tells him that he'll talk to Jones. Lucy Welker's sister Janet comes into the squad wanting to talk to someone in charge. She wants the business with her sister to stop. She wants to take her sister home. Clark stands up for Lucy and when Lucy herself protests against her sister's interference, her sister leaves her to deal with the situation on her own with her police friends. Clark in follow up conversation with Lucy presses her a little more to tell the complete truth and he asks her more about Ike Kerensky's involvement in the case. She tells him that Ike had tried to talk his brother out of setting the fire and she also admits that she and Ike were lovers. Murphy and Ortiz go out to the address attached to the Cadillac that carried Lucy Welker's attempted assassin. Sipowicz and Clark have brought Ike Kerensky back in and they are telling him that he is going to go down as a co-conspirator if he doesn't tell the truth about the fire. They decide to put him in the downstairs lockup to give a taste of what he has to look forward to. The girlfriend of the shooter and owner of the Cadillac isn't moved by the fact that her boyfriend was killed in a shootout with the police as she is when she finds out his accomplice Butchie is the one who was driving her car. Sipowicz tries to talk with Jones about what Moretti told him. Sipowicz tells him to let him play it out, but Jones isn't so trusting that the system is going to work for him. Medavoy tries to give Sipowicz advice for his upcoming exam. The desk sergeant calls upstairs to report that Ike Kerensky tried to hang himself in his cell. At the hospital Sipowicz and Clark try talking Ike Kerensky into doing the right thing. Murphy and Ortiz interview Butchie about his driving the getaway car and he finally tells them that he and his friend were hired by Kerensky. Jones arrives to the hearing late, he wasn't able to find Michael to bring to him to family court. The judge isn't going to proceed in the case until Michael is found. The judge adjourns and leaves the room and then Craig Woodruff makes some threatening remarks to Jones if he doesn't return his son to him. Bobbi Kingston tells Jones that she can help him if he is in fact hiding Michael. Jones indicates that he truly has no idea where Michael is located. Medavoy meets with the lawyer who is going to represent him at his trial; he also thinks that the trial is a bad idea, but since that is what Medavoy wants, that is what they are going to do. Sipowicz and Clark bring Simon Kerensky into the squad. Sipowicz reports in to Bale, who congratulates him on his plan to take the sergeant's exam. Bale offers him his copy of the patrolman's guide, with all his notes in it. ADA Munson and the detectives bring Lucy Welker good news; the driver of the getaway car and Kerensky's brother are going to join her in testifying against Simon Kerensky. Munson commends Clark on his handling of the case. Jones returns to the squad and tells them about Michael's disappearance, they all offer their help.moreless

      Sipowicz and Clark have dinner and a conversation. Clark doesn't want anyone else to get "checked out" of his life and Sipowicz makes a deal that if Clark sticks around, he'll stick around, which reiterates his statement back at the squad locker room that he isn't going anywhere. Clark and Sipowicz arrive on the scene where a woman, Lucy Welker, was beaten by a guy she describes a white homeless guy that looks like a lion. She can't give them any better description than that. Medavoy arrives to work with a black eye, given to him by a woman he describes as 5 foot nothing and Murphy offers him some makeup to help reduce the shine. Bobbi Kingston comes by to tell Jones that Michael's father is applying for visitation rights and probably eventually custody. Jones is surprised to find out that the hearing is this afternoon. Bale arrives at the squad, with a note to give someone a call, he is brought up to speed on the morning's cases and notices Medavoy's shiner, which he asks him about. Medavoy tries to pass it off as an accident in the shower. ADA Munson comes to the squad to talk about Lucy Welker, it turns out that she is material witness in a case they have against her boss Simon Kerensky. Munson wants to put some of their own people on the case, given the support she was given by the pair on the recent McClintock case. She decides to give them a chance and Clark owns up to her that he was entirely responsible for the trouble on that last case. Sipowicz and Clark go to prison to interview Kerensky. He doesn't know anything about the attack, but asks them to give Lucy his best. Ortiz reports that Lucy Welker has purchased a bus ticket out of town. She and Murphy are sent off to collect her from the bus terminal. James McGowan stops by the squad at Lt. Bale's invitation and following up on an anonymous tip Bale asks him about Medavoy's possible employment at his bar. McGowan denies his employment, but Bale, detecting a lie, threatens to come down on him if he doesn't tell him the truth. McGowan leaves the office and Medavoy waits in anticipation of Bale's next move. Meanwhile, Jones talks with a lawyer about what can and cannot be done regarding the hearing with Craig Woodruff. Murphy and Ortiz find Lucy Welker and manage to bring her in, where Lt. Bale is laying into her about her legal status if she runs. The detectives manage to get him to back down and Clark gets her to talk about what really happened this morning. She tells them that Lou DaSilva, one of Kerensky's employees, threatened her if she goes through with her testimony against Kerensky. She is so scared at the moment that she'd rather be put in jail than testify. Jones talks with Craig Woodruff about Michael. Woodruff claims that he has straightened out his act and is grateful to Jones for all that he has done for his son. Sipowicz is searching for Lou DaSilva and he gets a line on where he can be found, so he and Clark go after him. Lucy Welker's sister Janet arrives at the squad and she tells Murphy and Ortiz what she thinks about her sister's ability to go through with her testimony. Jones meets with Michael and he tells him about his father's request for visitation rights. Sipowicz and Clark have returned with Lou DaSilva and talk with him about his whereabouts this morning. Lou DaSilva denies knowing Welker, but then admits to attacking her in an attempt to steal her purse. Lou DaSilva tells the detectives that he rather do the time for the assault than do anything that will hurt Kerensky, because if he does that, he knows that he is done. Bale calls Medavoy into his office and tells him that he knows about his job moonlighting at McGowan's. Bale tells him to turn himself over to IAB, but he should continuing working his regular duty while this makes its way through the system. Sipowicz gives Medavoy some things to think about, including talking to his delegate and the option of turning in his papers. At family court the visitation hearing begins and both sides present their arguments for the judge. With no compelling evidence against Craig Woodruff, the judge grants one supervised visit per week, pending a psychological evaluation. Lucy Welker is brought in to give her testimony against Kerensky. She is very nervous and Clark offers her support, which helps her to get through it. Jones brings Michael for his first visit with his father. Clark, Munson, Lucy Welker and her sister return to the squad; since Lucy was not able to complete her testimony she will need to return to court in the morning. Bale won't authorize overtime, but Clark volunteers to keep an eye on Lucy's apartment. Sipowicz offers his assistance in getting her place setup, even though it is not on his way home. Medavoy talks with his delegate about his options. The delegate tells him about the option of going to see a doctor and see about getting a stint, which can get you out on a disability right away with ¾ quarters of his pay. At Lucy's apartment, Sipowicz and Clark make sure the place is secure. Clark assures her that he will be across the street in his car and available if she needs him. And that is where he begins to pass the night.moreless

      On a city bus a man was stabbed in the chest in front of his wife and kids. A witness reports to Sipowicz that the victim and his killer were eyeballing each other down before the stabbing occurred. Medavoy tells Jones about his daughter's plans to buy a house. He is going to need to find a part time job to help her out. Jones tells him about a position as a bouncer, but he doesn't think Medavoy can handle that kind of job. Medavoy is a little put out that no one thinks he handle himself. Sipowicz is contemplating the stabbing case when Clark arrives and tries to discuss it with him. Sipowicz is distracted by the effect of the killing on the victim's family; he is also bothered by Clark's feeling for the case. They run the case by Bale and then Bale checks in with Sipowicz's mental state, post shooting and everything else that has recently been going on. Sipowicz tells him that everything is okay. An antiques dealer, Gerard Prosser comes into the squad to go over the details of a burglary case that is being investigated by Murphy and Ortiz. John Irvin takes an interest in Mr. Prosser, especially after they discuss his tea service. Murphy and Ortiz ask him for a list of any old employees as a place to start their investigation. Sipowicz and Clark interview the widow and she tells them about her husband's inability to let anything go and the stare down he go into with his killer. Medavoy talks with bar owner Jimmy McGowan about the job. McGowan wants to know if Medavoy can handle a situation without resorting to violence. Medavoy cites his over 20 years of surviving on the job as his main qualification. Murphy and Ortiz ask Prosser about one of his old employees, Ismet Vukaj, they've discovered he had priors for robbery and want more information about him. He also gives them a gift to pass along to John Irvin. Clark has the transit records of the bus passengers. One of them was stopping in the area where Sipowicz knows there is a parole office. Medavoy and Jones catch a stabbing homicide and go to the crime scene, while Bale sends Clark and Sipowicz to interview the victim. Murphy and Ortiz interview Ismet Vukaj, who only admits to having one of Prosser's picture frames in his home, when the detectives warn him they are coming with Prosser to his house to see if any of Prosser's missing valuables are at his apartment. At the hospital, Sipowicz and Clark interview the stabbing victim. The victim was able to take a photo of his stabber with his cell phone. Sipowicz can only comment on the victim's inability to think about the consequences of not backing down. The cell phone photo indicates that the stabber might be the same guy for both of today's cases. Medavoy announces to the others about his new job bouncing and invites everyone to come on down. Sipowicz talks to Medavoy about his new career choice, but it comes down to everyone doubting that Medavoy is going to be able to handle himself in that job. Medavoy thanks him for his lack of encouragement. John Irvin stops by Prosser's home to thank him for the gift of the creamer he needed for his tea service. Prosser inquires as to John's availability and invites him to lunch. Prosser tells John Irvin about his recent slate of financial disasters and now the robbery on top of it all; but Prosser wants to know more about John Irvin. Meanwhile Sipowicz and Clark meet with their possible suspect, Frankie Rosales' parole officer. They go with her to the home where he lives with his sister. Despite Clark's treatment of the sister (where'd that come from?) and the parole officer they manage to get the address of the place where Frankie Rosales is likely to be found. Before they break in, Clark insists on going in first, citing Sipowicz having too much on his mind. Sipowicz goes first anyway and they get Frankie Rosales, with Rosales on managing to get off one shot with his gun before it jammed. John Irvin asks Murphy and Ortiz about the status of Prosser's case, he tells them about the lunch he had with them, but then also mentions the financial difficulties that Prosser told him about over lunch. He is not sure, but he thinks that Prosser might have robbed himself for the insurance money. With that bit of information, Murphy and Ortiz talk with Prosser about the case they've built against Ismet Vukaj, who they really like for committing the robbery. Not wanting to get an innocent victim in trouble, Prosser confesses to having committed the crime himself. Later when "Cagney & Lacey" are taking him away, Prosser has a few words for John Irvin, who he knows all about now. Clark and Sipowicz have begun their interview with Frankie Rosales; they bring up the robbery and then the incident on the bus. Frankie Rosales tells them that nobody is tougher than he is and works his way right into admitting to the murder on the bus, and later the robbery of the video store. Sipowicz brings Bale up to speed on Rosales confession and Bale commends him on doing good work today. Medavoy is working his new part-time job and Jones comes in. A large man starts to make a scene and diminutive Medavoy manages to get him to leave without any violence. Sipowicz goes to the hospital to tell the stabbing victim about the status of his case. As Sipowicz leaves the hospital room, he catches a glimpse of Bobby Simone in the next bed. Back in the squad's locker-room, Simone makes an appearance. Sipowicz asks Simone about death, what he should about his new boss, his future on the job, his wife and 3 kids and his partner. Simone tells him to become a teacher and to continue being a father to his 4 kids (his own 3 and his partner). Simone also tells him to stop thinking too much about what's ahead of him. Simone promises to be there for Sipowicz whenever he needs him and as they are finishing their discussion Clark enters the locker room. Sipowicz asks him if he would like to grab something to eat, he promises Clark that he is not going anywhere and that he will be right there with him.moreless

      Sipowicz receives a late night phone call and he goes to the bar where Clark is drinking and tries to convince him that it is time to go home. He takes Clark's keys and leaves with Clark in pursuit. Outside of the bar three shots are fired in their direction, one of them strikes Sipowicz in the shoulder. At the hospital Sipowicz has been stitched up and is going to work. He tells Medavoy that he thinks the shooting was a random act, or related to Clark and had nothing to do with his stalker. Murphy and Ortiz interview the bartender, who admits to making the call to Sipowicz about Clark's drinking. He also tells them that an off-duty cop works his door, but he had left before the shooting occurred; he also tells them that he isn't giving up that cop's name. They convince him it is in his best interest to do otherwise. In the squad's coffee room, members of Sipowicz's AA support group are there to give him some support. Someone called and told them that he had begun drinking again. Medavoy tells Sipowicz that request for his credit card information was requested by the IPI Agency, the PI firm that Hatcher works for. Sipowicz goes there, finds out who does the security equipment in their building and then he confronts Hatcher, to find out who requested that credit check. Hatcher says that it wasn't him, but that he will look into it for him as a "personal favor." Sipowicz and Bale tell Martens of IAB about Clark's conduct and what happened the night of the shooting. Murphy and Ortiz talk to the off-duty copy who worked as a doorman at the bar and he tells them about the woman that Clark was hitting on and the arrival of a man who broke up their relationship. Then they talk to Clark about what happened and he is able to give them the name, Christine, and number of the woman. Sipowicz stops at a security firm that did work the IPI Agency to see if he can find out who purchased the listening device. After Sipowicz tells the owner how the device was used to help with the abduction of his son, the owner agrees to search back through his records. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Christine, the woman that Clark was with last night. She tells them that the man that came into the bar to collect her was her father. She vouches for the presence of her father in their home between the hours of 2 and 3 am, the time when the shooting incident occurred. Sipowicz finds the guy who installed the listening device at Hatcher's request and also took Theo for a ride. The bartender has come back in again and is talking with Jones and Medavoy. The bartender remembered a guy from a couple of weeks earlier that Clark had stolen a woman from. The guy hadn't been back in the bar since that night that was until last night. Jones and Medavoy ask Clark about the woman and he eventually remembers her first name and where she lived. Sipowicz gets Hatcher and takes him for a ride. Sipowicz holds a gun at the back of Hatcher's neck. Sipowicz tells Hatcher that since he has he has involved his family he wants Hatcher to know what he is capable of. Sipowicz lets him go with those words of warning. The next day the woman whose attention Clark stole comes into the squad. The woman remembers the name of the guy was Larry Mytelka and she finds one of the many business cards that he gave her. In the meantime, Sipowicz (with Bale) has been called down to IAB and we find out what Hatcher was capable of, he has made recordings of his recent conversations with Sipowicz, including the one from last night. Martens tells them that with the evidence at hand, that at a minimum they are looking at a departmental trial. Bale asks him to hold onto that information for at least one day. Jones and Medavoy interview Larry Mytelka about what happened in the bar the night he lost the woman. Using John Irvin as their "eye-witness" they get Larry Mytelka to give up the fact that he fired the shots. Bale meets with Stan Hatcher and Hatcher's uncle and works out a deal to get the whole matter between them dropped. Hatcher doesn't like the deal, but his uncle convinces him otherwise. When Bale returns to the office, he calls Clark into his office and tells him that he needs to straighten up if he wants to continue to "be here." Sipowicz is next in the office, Bale tells him what went down and the conditions of the deal. Sipowicz thanks Bale, but Bale doesn't want his thanks. Bale didn't feel good doing what he did and he wants Sipowicz to know that he did not win a confederate based on these recent events. Clark asks Jones if he wants to go to the gym or get dinner. Jones denies the request, citing that Clark's recent behavior bothers him. Clark asks Sipowicz if he has put in his request for reassignment (to another partner) yet; he asks him to hold off and asks for a chance to get his act together. Sipowicz tells him that he hasn't, and that "we'll try it."moreless

      Clark leaves his latest encounter's apartment, hoping to make it to work on time. The other detectives are already on the scene of the blunt force trauma homicide of artist Tracy Gilchrist and Clark (of course) arrives late. Annoyed with this, Sipowicz shuts Clark out of his interview of one of the victim's neighbor. She tells him that the victim worked as a phone sex operator. After the interview Clark tries to address the situation, but Sipowicz isn't listening. Back at the squad room, Sipowicz takes delivery of a package (of kiddie porn). When he signs his name, the FBI agent reveals himself and takes him to the coffee room, where his partner and Lt. Bale are waiting. With the recent pattern of harassment to back him up, Sipowicz and Bale get the FBI to drop their investigation. Clark leaves for court, he is testifying in the case against Steve McClintock. Scott Garvin and his attorney come to the squad to report the probable kidnapping of his son. Garvin has received a ransom call. Sipowicz, Medavoy and Jones listen Scott Garvin tell the story of his relationship with his son, someone he'd recently cut off financially. Murphy and Ortiz interview Lainie Rutter, Tracy's boss at the phone sex operation. She tells them that Tracy got involved with one her clients and they persuade her to give up the name of this client. Clark is on the stand testifying for ADA Munson, on cross examination the defense attorney brings up his relationship with Carly Landis, which Clark admits to happening that one time. Scott Garvin gets wired up for the ransom drop and Bale goes out on the stakeout with Sipowicz. In the car Bale notes to Sipowicz that his vehicle is past due for its service, he wants him to make sure it gets into the shop today. The ransom drop is made but the perp is allowed to get away, because Bale wants to follow protocol and not compromise the situation. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Barry Henning, Tracy's chief client and he goes over the nature of their relationship with them. Back at the squad room, Clark reports to Sipowicz that the testimony went well. Sipowicz goes into Bale's office after he hears that Bale has called in the cavalry. Bale is just trying to follow protocol; Sipowicz vents his frustration and tells Bale that if he wants him out of here he needs to make the call. Clark finds out that the kidnap victim had been making calls to the murder victim, Tracy Gilchrist. The name isn't familiar to Scott Garvin. A call comes in that a radio car has found Todd Garvin. Munson comes into the squad to talk with Clark and Sipowicz about the case against Steve McClintock. She tells them that Clark's credibility as a witness was comprised when he admitted to having slept with Carly Landis. Clark didn't think it was relevant, which is why he didn't tell Munson about it in their preparation for the case. Sipowicz is discouraged, but Clark isn't worried; he thinks the case can be made without his testimony, because "it's not big deal." Todd Garvin is brought into the squad. Murphy and Ortiz return to tell Bale that Henning will alibi out. He tells them try and link their victim to the kidnapping and surprisingly he tells them that anyway that want to proceed on their investigation is fine with him. Todd Garvin tells them about his relationship with his father, his kidnapping and the fact that the last place he saw his girlfriend was back at the bar. They tell him about the death of Tracy. Medavoy reports that the name "Sam Parks" that was scratched on Tracy's wall might tie to a Samantha Lewitis and a Parks Benton. The detectives sit on the apartment of Samantha Lewitis and grab up her and her boyfriend Parks Benton up with the ransom money on them. They bring them in, but when Sipowicz returns to the squad room, Bale calls him into his office to show him the listening device that was taken out of his car when it was being serviced. This explains how his stalker was able to talk to Theo about recent family events. Sipowicz wants to run with the investigation, but Bale tries to assure him that the proper people have been notified and are working it and he doesn't need to get personally involved. Sipowicz disagrees and manages to at least be allowed to hold onto the listening device. Parks Benton tells Jones and Medavoy that the kidnapping was setup by Todd Garvin. He also tells them about Samantha Lewitis's perception of his reaction when Tracy Gilchrist was demonstrating her phone sex technique. John Irvin reports to Sipowicz the legwork he's done on the listening device, there are 14 places in the city where that model can be purchased. Meanwhile, Murphy and Ortiz talk with Samantha Lewitis, who confirms the faking of the kidnapping and when pressed about Tracy confesses to killing the "artsy-fartsy college girl" who makes money having sex on the phone. Sipowicz and Clark go back at Todd Garvin, who admits to faking the kidnapping; explains his relationship with his father and expresses regret for the death of his girlfriend. Scott Garvin is brought up to speed on the status of his son's case. Sipowicz gets a call from Munson; the murder charges against McClintock have been dropped. Clark tries to play it off, but the disgust on Sipowicz's face is obvious. Sipowicz tells Clark he doesn't want to work with him anymore. Clark thinks he has a holier than though attitude. Clark tells him that they are going to get a divorce and that he should "drop dead!" Clark leaves and a distraught Sipowicz returns to his desk. He calls Connie to see if she can get someone to watch the kids, so that she can pick him up from work. He's afraid that if he tries to drive himself home, he'll stop for a drink.moreless

He tells them about a woman who was making Byrd's parole hard, Hilary Blair. She turns out to be one of Byrd's rape victims. In their case against Byrd, DNA test was made inadmissible when the tests went bad, which significantly reduced his sentence. Sipowicz, who didn't sign the log, finds Hatcher and asks him what he was doing at 8:00 AM. Hatcher denies having anything to do with Theo's morning ride. He tells Sipowicz he is "ready for the rubber room." Sipowicz returns with his old files. He enlists Medavoy's help in running some names from old cases that might have a vendetta against him. Clark and Jones interview Hilary Blair about her connection with Byrd. She shows no remorse for the death of their victim and she tells them the story of Byrd's raping of her.

Murphy and Ortiz talk with Eliza Todd about her rape by Lester Byrd and her feelings about their victim. Todd doesn't give them a substantial alibi for her whereabouts in the morning. Sipowicz finds Fraker, who is working in a bar these days, also doesn't know anything about Theo's morning ride. Fraker has an alibi but he reminds him that "what goes around, comes around. Think about it." Medavoy finds a name of someone in one of Sipowicz's old case files, someone who was paroled three years ago and as of two years ago was living in Sipowicz's neighborhood. Murphy finds out from the provider that Eliza Todd made the web posting. Clark and Jones bring her in and interview her about her writing. The postings make reference to a gun, and she tries to keep the detectives from finding the gun she owns. She admits to owning the unregistered gun and tells them where to find it. Bale wants them to prosecute her for the weapons charge, if they can't get her for the murder. Murphy tries to make her case for the woman, when Ortiz interrupts with a lead for them to follow. Murphy is annoyed by her interruption. They go to the bar where Lester Byrd was drinking last night. The bartender tells them that Byrd was there arguing with another man. Jones and Clark interview Steve Pines, who tells them about Drew DeRoche and the hold he has over his nephew Ben's safety in prison. While they wait for Drew DeRoche to return home, Clark and Jones decide to visit Ben Pines for more background on DeRoche. Clark and Jones talk with Ben Pines, who tells them about Drew DeRoche and his relationship with their victim, they were lovers in prison. They go back to confront Drew DeRoche about his relationship with Lester Byrd and eventually breaks down and confesses to the murder. Murphy tries to get Bale to let Eliza Todd off of the weapon's charge. She shows her annoyance with Ortiz for not backing her up. Clark tries to talk to Sipowicz about his problem; he wants to help. Sipowicz tells him that he can't trust him until he gets his head on straight. Bale comes out of his office, angry with Ortiz; because of something she wrote in her 5s on the weapons charge, the DA is not going to be able to pursue their prosecution. Ortiz tells him that she made a mistake. Bale tells her and the other detectives that they are only allowed one mistake, and she has used hers up. Still angry Bale reminds Sipowicz that he didn't see any of the paperwork that was being caught up on. Sipowicz tells him that some personal business came up and Bale replies by telling him today will be charged against lost time. Tomorrow Sipowicz will work cases and get that paperwork done. Murphy likes what Ortiz did for Eliza Todd; she asks Ortiz if they can start their working relationship over. At the Sipowicz home, Theo tells his dad about his nightmare and they talk about the morning's event. Andy tells Theo that the man who took him for a ride this morning was a friend who was playing a joke.moreless

      Sipowicz arrives at the scene of the homicide of a pregnant 18-year-old. According to a uniform, Clark is already on the scene but asleep in his car waiting for the others to arrive. Ortiz and Murphy arrive, followed by Bale who wants all of the detectives to confer before they begin their canvas. Sipowicz covers for Clark, but then goes to give him a rude awakening. Back at the squad, Sipowicz notices that his fish are listing at the bottom of their tank. Sipowicz and Clark are going off to follow up on lead and Bale reiterates to the detectives that he wants to know everything going on with their cases, "up to the minute." Sipowicz informs him about his fish. Jones and Medavoy go to the scene of a robbery, where the thief stole her grandmother's diamond ring. When asked who else knew about the ring, the victim, Lorraine Stuval, says she was the only one. Her husband, Leon Belkin, an ex-con released six months ago, couldn't have had anything to do with it. The detectives decide they need to have a talk with him and ask where they might be able to find him. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the man who left the message on their victim's answering machine. They find out that he and his wife were planning on adopting their victim's baby when it was born on an unofficial basis. Clark comments that the man is a "scumbag." He tells them about Steve McClintock, the man who arranged the adoption. Outside the interview room, Sipowicz confronts Clark about his recent behavior and how (despite what Clark says) he thinks is beginning to affect his performance on the job. Clark of course disagrees and tells Sipowicz to go conduct his interview how he wants. Jones and Medavoy talk with Leon Belkin and he denies having any knowledge of his wife even having a diamond ring. They ask him about his friend Joe Hess, another ex-con who he had recently been in contact with. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the McClintock. Despite the fact that McClintock is in the midst of a procedure, they decide it would be better to talk with the doctor back at the house. Back at the house Sipowicz finds out that his fish have begun listing, with an overdose of copper. Murphy and Ortiz find out that McClintock's girlfriend, Carly Landis is a nurse that occasionally does work at Rikers. This ties her to the victim and may indicate that she is working the adoption scam with McClintock. Sipowicz and Clark get ready to leave for Rikers, Bale reminds the detectives and threatens them with "a rip" the next time he has to be asked to be kept up to speed. Jones and Medavoy interview Leon Belkin's friend Joe Hess. Hess doesn't know anything about a robbery. After Hess talks a little smack, Jones starts to tune him up. Hess sticks to his story about knowing nothing. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Carly Landis, she tells what she knew about their victim and the red tape less path she and McClintock were working to help couples adopt babies. They decide they need to bring her in for further questioning. Lorraine Stuvle looks at and hears Joe Hess speak in a lineup, but she doesn't recognize him. Murphy and Ortiz report to Jones about a fingerprint hit from Lorraine Stuvle's apartment. That man is Lenny Kessler and they plan to go out and bring him in, but only after Murphy has felt Jones' arm and accuses him of eating too many Twinkies. Ortiz gives her a look that leads to another conversation about her flirting. Ortiz thinks it is going to eventually get her into trouble, whereas Murphy would rather take the chance of being "misinterpreted", rather than "walking around with a stick up her ass." Murphy and Ortiz go to Kessler's apartment, where they find him in the company of hookers with blow. Back at the squad, Sipowicz's fish are dying. He begins to think that the fish are the victim's of foul play from the person who has been stalking him. The names of Hatcher and Fraker are brought up as possible people from Sipowicz's recent past that might have something to do with the recent harassing. Since he wasn't up to speed and keeping with his promise, Bale gives Sipowicz and Clark a "one day rip" because he had to take a phone call from a woman, Pauline Weikel, about their case and he didn't know who she was or how she was involved in their ongoing investigation. Kessler tells Murphy and Ortiz that Lorraine Stuvle gave him the ring to hold onto and that she also had given him $300 for beating her up. He tells them that Stuvle has been miserable since her husband showed up, she was happier when he was behind bars. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Pauline Weikel who eventually tells them that she was working with McClintock in his adoption scheme. She also tells them that he had threatened her. They go back at McClintock, who tells them that Weikel was a woman who kept backing out of possible adoptions. McClintock sticks to his story of being with Carly Landis all of last night. Sipowicz and Clark go to report to Bale on where they are, and Bale is annoyed that they decided to go back and talk to McClintock without informing him first. Bale reminds them that the system has changed around here. They are going to go back and talk to Carly Landis. All of Sipowicz's fish are dead and Jones has provided Sipowicz with the location of Stan Hatcher's current job. Despite warnings from John Irvin about Bale's probably need to know that he is taking lost time. Sipowicz takes some unauthorized lost time (a two day rip) to seek out Stan Hatcher and confront him. Hatcher denies that he's had anything to do with the recent events at the precinct, but he takes delight in the fact that they are happening. Jones and Medavoy talk with Lorraine Stuvle about her collusion with Lenny Kessler. She does admit to it, but gives the reason for her behavior as her inability to deal with being married to an ex-con; when he was a convict everything worked out for the best. Sipowicz and Clark go back at Carly Landis. When they show her pictures of the victim, she relents and gives her boyfriend's alibi up. They go back at McClintock, but he continues to deny his involvement. He doesn't believe they have any physical evidence tying him to the crime. Jones and Medavoy let Leon Belkin go, but Belkin will now find himself out on the street, since his wife will be doing time and probably not letting him stay in her apartment. Ortiz comments on Murphy's good work with Kessler and tries to make some amends. Carly Landis finishes her statement and asks Clark for a ride home. After she leaves Sipowicz advises him that he should drop her off and leave right away. He thinks she is more involved in the case than she is saying. Clark is annoyed that Sipowicz even thinks it necessary for him to tell him that. Clark gives her that ride home and accompanies her home, where contrary to the advice given to him by his partner, he gives in to temptation and gets involved with someone from his case. When Bale is leaving for the night, he and Sipowicz exchange a few more words that only deepen the adversarial relationship that's developed between them.moreless

      After another late night out Clark arrives late at a crime scene, wearing the same clothes he wore the day before. Sipowicz comments that his new lifestyle doesn't suit him. Back at the squad, Det. Laura Murphy has joined the detectives as Ortiz's new partner. She comes from a group that did background checks on future cops, no real detective work according to Sipowicz. She assures him that her three years as a uniform have prepared her for working on the street. They are also anticipating the arrival of a new CO. The morning's victim, a Dr. Miller, was reported to be in New York researching a book and he received two phone calls that the detectives are going to follow up. Sipowicz receives a package containing a dead rat and a note "PAB", which Clark laughs off. Out on the street, Ortiz and Murphy go to the scene of another homicide, where Murphy runs into Off. Keogh, someone she went to the academy with. The victim, a homeless man, was observed by a witness to be hanging out with a couple of squares (who were on a "field trip") and "King Tut." Murphy ask Keogh if he can get in contact with "King Tut" and he tells her for that for her he'll do anything. Sipowicz and Clark interview Larry Praegitzer, the man who their DOA (Miller) had talked to via his hotel phone, but Praegitzer doesn't indicate he knows anything about what Miller was really doing in town; he does them a story about Miller and a prostitute. Murphy and Ortiz talk with "King Tut" down in the precinct lobby and after a $20 incentive he tells them about the rich people who come to pretend they are homeless on weekends, something they call "Street Embrace." They let him go and Murphy asks Keogh to keep an eye on "King Tut." Jones tells Sipowicz that a phone dump of their victim's cell phone indicates that he was talking with Eric Praegitzer, son of the man they just talked with. Eric Praegitzer is on his way into the precinct. The new Lieutenant (Thomas Bale) arrives, he comes from Internal Affairs and Sipowicz advises his fellow detectives that "the time to start covering your ass would be right about now." Sipowicz connects the dead rat he received in his package with the arrival of his new boss, a former member of the "rat squad." Jones tells them that their victim was a prominent sexologist back in the 60s. Ortiz and Murphy are leaving to follow up on a lead, when the new Lieutenant wants to know what they are up to. Eric Praegitzer tells the detectives that Miller contacted him about wanting to know some tourist information. The detectives have knowledge that Miller helped Praegitzer through a suicide problem he had three years earlier. Ortiz and Murphy talk with Zoe Prentiss about what she knew about their victim and her participation in the "Street Embrace." After leaving the interview, Ortiz offers Murphy some advice about her flirtatious nature, which Murphy denies that she is doing. She comments that she is always able to get along with guys, but usually can never get along with women. Medavoy has his talk with Lt. Bale, but Bale's question about how much longer he plans on being on the job puts him on guard about his future with the squad. Jones reports to the others that he has found information that 10 years ago Eric Praegitzer was a woman named Jennifer. They decide they need to reinterview him. Clark tells Murphy and Ortiz that the gun used in their homicide is registered to a PI named Charles Isadore. When Clark decides it is more important to call back a "chick" Sipowicz decides it's time to have a talk with Clark about his recent behavior, which he believes is related to the death of his father and his girlfriend. Clark tells Sipowicz has a specific job related complaint, he tells him that he doesn't want to hear anything about what he does after work. Sipowicz warns him that he better get "his act together." Murphy and Ortiz talk with Charlie Isadore about his part in the death of their victim. Charlie tells them that he was hired by Zoe's father to keep on an eye on her while she participated in the "Street Embrace." He tells them that Zoe recognized him for not being who he pretended to be and that she managed to get hold of his gun when the victim was harassing Zoe to the point she wouldn't take it anymore. Eric Praegitzer is brought back in for further questioning about his past as a woman. They want to know if Miller had performed his sex change operation. He tells them no. They wonder is Miller might have been trying to blackmail him, letting his secret be known. He tells them that he has just minded his own business and never hurt anyone. Meanwhile, Murphy and Ortiz are listening to Zoe Prentiss tell them that was Charlie has said is just crazy. She says she left after the victim had called her rude names. She left Charlie and victim both alive. Sipowicz gets another "PAB" call. So they don't get into an overtime situation, Bale tells Murphy and Ortiz to let the DA's office to sort out their deadlock situation with Charlie Isadore and Zoe Prentiss's story both in disagreement. While Bale watches, Larry Praegitzer tells Sipowicz and Clark the real story about Eric's gender. Their victim had performed the initial surgery on Eric, which made him a girl, after an accident with a circumcision instrument destroyed Eric's penis. Miller had a theory and Eric's parents tried to raise him as a girl, but Eric always knew deep down he was a male. Miller kept coming back into his son's life and Larry Praegitzer had warned him that if he ever contacted his son again, he would kill him. When Miller called this time, Larry Praegitzer kept his promise and killed him. Sipowicz tells him that they are going to help him with his statement, after they confirm this story with Eric. Off. Keogh tells Murphy that he has seen "King Tut" in brand new clothes going into a hotel with a hooker. They decide to go and investigate this turn of events. Eric Praegitzer tells his story to Sipowicz and Clark, which confirms what the father had just told them. They go back to the interview room, to find that Bale is with Larry Praegitzer. Bale tells them to leave the room. "King Tut" tell the detectives that he got the money from Zoe and he tells them the same story about Zoe that Charlie Isadore did. Bale has Sipowicz and Clark in his office and lets them know that he isn't going to stand for any falsified statements, such as the one they were likely going to work out with Larry Praegitzer. Bale believes that it is up to the jury to do their job once they know the Praegitzer's story. Sipowicz and Clark both try to tell him that this is the only place where good people, who have had to do a bad thing, are going to get any consideration. Bale tells them that their job is not to reinterpret the facts. Sipowicz tells Bale that with his 32 years on the job he plans on leaving on his own terms, but if he can't live with what he being forced to do now, he will leave. Bale tells him that is a decision every cop eventually has to make. Things only get worse for Sipowicz when Jones tells him that he needs to come out to the parking lot. Sipowicz's car has had all its tires flattened, and it is revealed that "PAB" stands for "Payback's A Bitch." Someone has it in for Sipowicz. Back upstairs, Bale tells Murphy she did well having Keogh keep an eye on "King Tut." She tells him that the credit should go to Keogh. As he gets ready to leave, Bale feels it is important that all the detectives know something. He tells them that it is the department's perception that the 15 Squad is a rogue outfit and that he has been put in charge to make sure that they represent today's policing. The detectives can either cooperate with that plan or have Bale's support or they won't be working here anymore. Clark finds it ridiculous and believes they are so screwed. Medavoy is worried, but Sipowicz "ain't changing a damn thing."moreless
