      At the Sipowicz/McDowell household all is not right with the world as Theo has wet the bed for the 3rd night in a row and Andy hasn't made the time to pick up the detergent to get the sheets clean from the previous events. The baby is colicky and crying and tensions are mounting as Andy's pager goes off. With the morning off to a great start, Sipowicz and McDowell arrive late to the scene where the other detectives are starting to investigate the death of a woman found bludgeoned to death in her kitchen. Back at the squad, Rodriguez is back from his ex-wife's funeral. Jones and Medavoy are out on a different case where they encounter the relaxed on the job Officer Ed Laughlin. Their victim is dead in his SUV filled with picnic supplies. The homeless man who found the body offers them no help. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview the husband of their victim, who can account for all of his time; except for the 4 hours he was sleeping (he and his wife have separate beds). He does give them information on the illegal immigrant that was doing some tile work for them. Jones and Medavoy in the meantime are interviewing a man named Omar Givens, whose business card was found in their victim's SUV. He tells them about the last time he saw their victim, after a barbeque held the previous day. He tells them the victim was his hero and he would have done anything for anyone. He can't see how anyone would want to hurt him. Jones is suspicious of Givens who's been somewhat nervous throughout their interview of him. They let him go for now and pursue some additional leads. McDowell and Ortiz bring the illegal immigrant tile worker in for questioning. McDowell and Ortiz interview the tile man, who admits to having a fight with the victim over the work he had for her. He tells them that he walked away from the job. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their victim's son, who also points at the tile man. He tells them his father couldn't have done it and his own relationship with his mother was normal. Other evidence comes in that point toward the victim's husband as having motive. Sipowicz tells Clark Jr. about Theo's bed-wetting problem. Jones and Medavoy interview the woman who their victim was supposed to meet. She tells them about their victim's cousin who had recently got out of prison. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go to office of their victim's husband to confront him about the domestic disturbance calls that were filed on his address. He lawyers up and the two detectives return to the squad. Sipowicz tosses his notebook to McDowell so that she can look up the number of fiancée of the victim's son, indicating he still has some tension about the morning's events. In the coffee room, to help explain Theo's bedwetting problem, Medavoy tells him the story about how he used to take a dump on the front lawn when his younger brother was first born. They return to the main room to find two men in suits going to Rodriguez's office. Sipowicz suspects the "rat squad." Clark Jr. is asked to join them in the office and then they accompany him outside the building to the parking lot where he unlocks his car for them. A search of the car reveals a quantity of heroin found underneath the driver's seat. With that evidence in hand, Clark Jr. is arrested. Back upstairs everyone is trying to get Clark Jr. some representation, but Rodriguez tells them that business must still be carried on when one of Jones and Medavoy's suspects is brought in. Sipowicz goes downstairs and has a confrontation with Laughlin, who he suspects of having set Clark Jr. up. Jones and Medavoy interview the cousin of their victim, who in Jones' opinion attitude and alibi suck. Medavoy remembers the name of a defense attorney that tore him apart on the stand and recommends him for Clark Jr.'s defense. The ME report on their victim gives Jones and Medavoy a good lead on who they need to reinterview for their case. The fiancée arrives at the squad for her talk with McDowell and Ortiz. They way she handles her fiancé raises some eyebrows. The fiancée describes her future mother-in-law as the "c" word. She also describes her fiancé's relationship with his mother as too close. At IAB, Clark Jr. is being interrogated and realizes it isn't going to go well when Fraker enters the room. He tries to point them into looking at Laughlin for setting him up, they don't seem to listen and only want a urine sample from him. Sipowicz re-interviews the victim's son and his frustrations of the day help him to get a confession. The report comes back from the lab that Clark Jr. was in "possession" of 4 ounces of heroin, which Haywood tells them is Class A felony. As a result, Clark Jr. has been moved to a holding cell. Sipowicz is going to see Clark Jr. and he makes a promise to McDowell that he will stop and get some detergent on the way home. Rather than get into it McDowell tells him to not worry about the detergent and to go help Clark Jr. who she knows he is worried about, and she is too. Jones and Medavoy reinterview Givens, who eventually tells them about the stupid argument about cake that lead to their victim's death. Rita is with John in his cell as Andy arrives and she agrees to go tell John's father about the day's event. Andy and John strategize about how they are going to prove Laughlin is behind. Andy leaves and John is now alone in his cell for the night.moreless

Sipowicz goes back to talk to their suspect about his outstanding warrant. He claims identity theft, until Sipowicz wants his fingerprints. The guy gets hold of a gun and begins holding Sipowicz hostage in the interview room. The detectives try to figure out what to do and how it happened.

Clark Sr. realizes that Sipowicz is probably on the job. Meanwhile out on the street, Sipowicz is on the job, shaking down a drug dealer named Gordo who he tells that he is looking for any information on any cops that may have been shaking down any dealers. Back at the squad, the detectives are mulling over Clark Jr.'s situation when Jones comes in with information about an arrest that Laughlin made the previous week. The individual he busted for pot had a previous record involving heroin. McDowell and Ortiz begin an interview with a mother and daughter who've come in to report that the daughter had been assaulted the night before. When they get the mother to leave the room Annalise, the daughter girl confesses to them what really happened. She and her boyfriend were attacked. Both she and her boyfriend were knocked out with chloroform while she was sexually assaulted. Sipowicz has a conversation with Laughlin's drug bust collar, Ignacio Delgado, and he eventually tells Sipowicz that while Laughlin asked him about where he could get some heroin, he didn't tell him anything because he didn't trust him. Clark Sr. stops Sipowicz on his way into the precinct to offer his help. Sipowicz assures him that he is doing everything that he can to help his son, but allows Clark Sr. to go and look up his son's ex-partner from narcotics to see what he might know. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Annalise's boyfriend Terrell. Since he has a record, they are somewhat suspicious of him and his story doesn't seem to sit right with him. He offers them nothing, but they want him to remain available. Ortiz asks for status from Sipowicz on his investigation. He tells her that they have direction that they are looking, but they don't have any real progress to report yet. Another rape is reported and McDowell and Ortiz are sent to interview the victim. Jones and Medavoy are interviewing Carl Pruitt, one of Laughlin's stops where a citation wasn't issued. Sipowicz comes in to the interview room and quickly gets the information that he needs, which is that Pruitt knows nothing. At the hospital McDowell and Ortiz interview the other rape victim, who tells them that her attacker had made her boyfriend watch while he raped her. She tells them that her boyfriend claimed that he was going to be on the lookout for the attacker. A call comes in from a friend of Gordo and Sipowicz agrees to meet with him. On his way out of the house, Sipowicz runs into Laughlin and they exchange a few heated words about Sipowicz's investigation. McDowell and Ortiz talk a man named Will Porter who was collared in the park a couple of weeks earlier. With his prior record, they ask for his cooperation which he denies them. They respond by adding his photo to their lineup. Sipowicz meets with the dealer, who begins to tailor his story to meet with Sipowicz's needs. Sipowicz smashes the dealer's face into his lunch and tells him not to waste anymore of his time. McDowell and Ortiz hear from the second victim's boyfriend who they leave to go and retrieve. Jones finds out that Carl Pruitt the man they interviewed earlier and that Sipowicz had dismissed after only a few pointed questions has called into the precinct asking for Laughlin. Rodriguez wants them to bring Pruitt back in. Clark Sr. comes in to report to Sipowicz on what he knows, but all Sipowicz sees is that Clark Sr. doesn't know anything and that he has been drinking. Sipowicz tells him to go home, but Clark Sr. realizes what the beef is that the uniform has with his son over the IAB investigation with the auxiliary cop. McDowell and Ortiz talk with their second rape victim's boyfriend, who tells them that he was conscious throughout his girlfriend's rape. He can't help them with their photo array because he wasn't wearing his glasses to get a clear look at the perp. He does promise to help make a voice ID, since the perp was constantly talking. Sipowicz is given a second chance to talk with Carl Pruitt, who eventually tells him that Laughlin did take the heroin that he was holding to sell on consignment. Pruitt is scared that the dealer he was going to be selling it for is going to come after him. Sipowicz wants Pruitt to wear a wire and have a conversation with Laughlin. Annalise's boyfriend is brought back in to reconfirm his story to McDowell and Ortiz, to see if it really matches that of the other victims' boyfriend. He tells them that it does and when they show him their photo array he picks out a suspect for them to after. Out on the street the wearing of the wire doesn't go well, as Sipowicz, Rodriguez and Martens realize that Laughlin is hip to what is going on. They are going to have to try again later, with some other tactics. McDowell and Ortiz talk again with Will Porter, who they now know was their rapist. His record of being raped in prison and their knowledge of it gets Porter to confess his crime. The detectives and Haywood are discussing what kind of case they have against Laughlin and it doesn't look good. Off. Shannon comes upstairs at Sipowicz's request and Sipowicz wants him to help them with their case against his partner, Laughlin. Shannon says that he can't help him followed by claiming to not knowing anything. Sipowicz (and we) know that Shannon is a good cop, and Sipowicz is just asking for his help to save a good cop from a bad cop. The detectives are called out to the scene of a homicide; the victim is Pruitt their one witness that gave them hope for getting a release for Clark Jr. Sipowicz goes to the Clark Jr.'s cell to give him the bad news of the day.

"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

      The morning after their breakup and Clark and Ortiz are on the scene of a homicide and there is a hint of tension. Aware of what has transpired, Sipowicz tells McDowell that it is just a matter of time before it hits the fan between Clark and Ortiz. The homicide the detectives have caught involves a victim who was bludgeoned to death. The murder weapon is still at the scene and contains one good fingerprint. Back at the squad they run the case for Rodriguez. Sipowicz gets a call from Theo's teacher, who refers to McDowell as Mrs. Sipowicz, something which appears to make Sipowicz uncomfortable. Jones and Medavoy are sent to the scene of an assault, once the get there the victim (a Russian woman) claims that she is okay and doesn't want to press charges. The woman's husband, Roy Pardee arrives on the scene. Sipowicz and Clark arrive at the office of Carla Whitford, a woman who was doing business with their victim. Sipowicz plays the answering machine message she left for their victim. She tells them the victim was gay and is "a grade A prick." Jones and Medavoy talk with Roy Pardee and he tells him that he really doesn't know anything about his wife's personal life, she is very secretive. After discussing the case, Rita reminds John about the naïveté of the concept of remaining friends during the short term. At the criminal courts building, Haywood tries to keep a jury convicted drug dealer Jerry Wells from being released on bail (the only witness against him has recanted his testimony). The judge lets Wells go, but as he prepares to leave, he makes a comment to Haywood about there being no hard feelings and he winks at her as he leaves the courtroom. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Justin Tangier who they've found is using their victim's credit card. He tells them that he was using the in conjunction with his band that the victim was backing. He gives them the name Remy Blanchard as his alibi. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's co-worker, whom they've been told that he is more than friends with. He tells them about that the relationship that their victim has with her husband Roy Pardee. Blanchard confirms Justin's alibi; but the fingerprint on the murder weapon gives the detectives the name of an AWOL Marine named Russell Stokes, whom another witness says was seen with Blanchard. Sipowicz and Clark go the apartment of Remy Blanchard and they get him to admit knowing Stokes. They get Blanchard to place a call to Stokes and have him return to the apartment. When Stokes returns, Sipowicz and Clark take him into custody. Jones and Medavoy reinterview Roy Pardee about his wife. They tell him they also know about his previous marriage to another mail order bride, who mysteriously disappeared a few years earlier. Sipowicz and Clark bring Stokes into the precinct. Before they can get him to the pokey room for questioning, John Irvin has a chance to see him and recognizes something in him that he had gone through 15 years earlier, which is being gay and coming to grips with it. Stokes is brought into the pokey room and gives them his story, which is that Justin had brought him to the victim's apartment and that he woke up with the murder weapon in his hand. When confronted with being outed, Stokes tries to position himself as being able to commit to the crime. He tells them that they need to talk to Justin. John Irvin has witnessed their interview of Stokes. Jones and Medavoy run their case by Rodriguez as Haywood arrives. She is there to talk with Jones about the creepy feeling she got from Jerry Wells earlier in the day. He gets Wells information from her and tells her that he will take care of it. McDowell and Ortiz go back at Justin. He only admits to making a phone call, which set the meeting up between Stokes and the victim. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Haywood about their case with Stokes. They plan to go back at Stokes, when John Irvin confesses to Sipowicz that he watched their interview of Stokes. He hears what John Irvin has to say about Randall Stokes, it makes Sipowicz decide that they need to go back at Remy Blanchard. They get him to admit to concocting a story with Justin and they bring him to the pokey to confront Justin. Justin gives them the story of what happened. Jones and Medavoy interview Pardee's brother, who they suspect may have assisted his brother in beating his current wife and getting rid of his first wife. Using his FBI lie detection technique, Medavoy get Pardee's brother (who is slow of mind) to confess to his crimes. The brother confesses that he alone had killed his brother's first wife and beat his current wife, since both women were just using his brother. Sipowicz and Clark come down to Stokes cell and tell them about Justin copping to the murder. John Irvin comes into Stokes' cell and talk with him about the issues he perceives that Stokes is facing, just to let him know that there is help available out there. Jones and Medavoy take Roy Pardee out to where they've found that his brother has buried the body of his first wife. Later, Jones goes to the apartment of Jerry Wells and lays down the law for him regarding Haywood. Andy and Connie attend Theo's performance, where plays the letter "Z."

      Sipowicz is in early and sees that his little ploy has worked; Gibson's parrot now only has a one word vocabulary: "douche bag." Sipowicz meets Hatcher and Clark at the scene of an apparent suicide where he finds that Hatcher has already let one of the witnesses go. The victim's suicide note makes reference to man who had kidnapped her last year. The note indicates a partial license plate number and a description of the kidnapper's vehicle. However, other than the victim missing her rent last year for two months, no one can find any other indication that the victim ever told anyone about her kidnapping. An elderly woman comes into the squad to report that something dear to her has been stolen and she thinks she knows who stole it. She thinks her nephew may have stolen her diamond ring; the nephew at one time had some trouble with drugs. Medavoy suggests an approach they can take to begin questioning her nephew. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Paul Grady, the man who owns the van with the license plate that ID'd in the suicide note. They show Grady a photo of the victim, he tells them that he recollects seeing their victim about 6 months when she came to his home disheveled and looking for help. He tells the detectives that his wife will recall that incident. In the meantime Medavoy and Jones go to interview the nephew about the missing ring. The nephew readily agrees to a urine test to prove he's been clean for the past nine months, and then he tells the detectives about his aunt's personal ad. She's been looking for sex partners and the nephew suggests that anyone of those partners that came to their home would have had access to the ring. Hatcher finds another woman, Gina Bell, who reports having been abducted for a few weeks two years ago. Sipowicz and Clark decide to pursue this angle and will leave the next one (if there are any in the tri-state area) for Hatcher to follow up on. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Gina Bell who doesn't recall much of anything about her kidnapping. She seems reluctant to talk about it and thinks that she might have exaggerated the duration of her kidnapping; it might have only been for a couple of days. Medavoy and Jones talk with Veronica Lewis about her relationships, it turns out she has had some of these men in her apartment. She gives them a list of names to check out. Hatcher has come up with another name, Martha Henstridge in New Jersey whose kidnapping matches the profile. Hatcher and Ortiz leave for the interview as Off. Janet Grafton (nee Vecchio) comes into the squad and tells Clark about what's happen since her breakup with her husband (whose granted her the divorce) and the fact that she is being transferred into the 15th Precinct; she wanted to make sure that he was alright with it. In New Jersey Hatcher and Ortiz talk with Martha Henstridge who has very good recall about what happened during her kidnapping. They show her a photo array and she points right to the picture of Paul Grady. Sipowicz and Clark pull Grady out of the cage and start questioning him and telling him what they know about him; Grady asks for some time to think and that gives Sipowicz and Clark time to go and search his home. Medavoy and Jones talk to one of Veronica's many liaisons; they've started with the ones with criminal records. He tells them about the wonderful sexual relationship he's had with Veronica, something he wasn't going to spoil. In Queens at the home of Paul Grady the detectives find the dungeon in the basement. Now they need to find his wife, since she's been backing up his story. Medavoy and Jones talk to another liaison named Bob Longano, a man who hasn't stolen anything in seventeen years. He tells him that the last time he was with her he found the next morning that some of his money and a credit card were stolen. He thought maybe she needed the money, but the detectives have another idea. Sipowicz and Clark return to find Paul Grady naked in the pokey room cage; Grady lawyers up and Sipowicz immediately goes looking for Hatcher, who he confronts in the restroom. Sipowicz is worried that this is going to blow the case; Hatcher cites his reason for losing it. Eight years ago he lost his wife to a car bomb due to his one his arrests, whenever there is violence against a woman it just sets him off. Sipowicz tells him to go back to his desk and stay away from the interview rooms. Then he and Clark go to talk with Grady's wife who claims that her husband is a deprogrammer for the government, which is what he does in their basement. She tells them about what her husband did to her when she once tried to go into their basement. She tells them that he threatened to kill her if he ever told anyone about the basement. Medavoy and Jones talk with Veronica's nephew, who they know used Longano's credit card recently. The nephew admits his guilt and tells them where he pawned the ring. Sipowicz and Clark talk again with Gina Bell, whose necklace was found in the drain of the dungeon. Despite the emotional pain, she recalls more detail about her kidnapping. She is also able to ID Paul Grady and she also tells them that there was a woman in the room. Sipowicz and Clark go back at Grady's wife. She tells them that she will give them the names of all the women that her husband had in the basement, but she will never tell them that she had anything to do with what went on there. She was sick with guilt about it all, but she was scared for her life. Medavoy return Veronica's ring to her. She thanks Medavoy and suggests that if he ever needs to talk about anything, he has her number. The detectives run their case by Haywood and Hatcher makes a comment that indicates that he knows he blew the part of the case that would have allowed them to put both Paul and Susan Grady away. Sipowicz offers Hatcher a little support and tells him about his own dealing with the death of a spouse. Gibson prepares to take his bird home, but first he tells Sipowicz that he might have won a battle, but not the war. Later, Greg meets with Veronica; he's asked her out with the intention of asking her out. She bottom lines it for him, she knows what he really wants is sex and so they adjourn to her place and make the furniture to move.moreless

He doesn't want to press charges, but he'd like them to find his son Michael. McDowell and Ortiz get diverted to help out Jones and Medavoy, but before she leaves McDowell talks with Sipowicz about the layout of their apartment. Sipowicz is not giving up his fish and when he looks for some sympathy from Clark Jr., who's been strangely quiet this morning, he doesn't get any. Back at the squad, Rodriguez is trying to get hold of his ex-wife, who missed her breakfast appointment with him. Sipowicz confronts Clark Jr. about his lack of support and Clark Jr. tells him about his father and IAB. Sipowicz tells him they'll talk to Martens to see what they can do to get this worked out.

He tells her that he's done, but she pleads with him for his help in getting straight. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Michael, advising him of what will happen if he causes trouble for his father again. Near the end of their discussion with him, he says the phrase "she can't breathe;" they don't know what he means by it, he tells them it's a line from a song. The parents of the murdered woman come into the squad. They disclose to McDowell and Ortiz that their daughter was adopted and seemed predisposed to a life that will lead to trouble. When they both find out that she's dead, the mother is starting to have a breakdown, while the father wonders why they are asking them questions. Rodriguez reports that the lab has retrieved a frame from the videotape of the victim naked on her bed, the lab is trying to restore more frames.

Martens from IAB stops to by to talk to Sipowicz and Clark Jr. and from him they find out that the only way his dad might get out from underneath is to retire, right away. Despite the fact he doesn't like Laughlin, Clark Jr. asks Martens if there is anything that can be done to reinstate him. Jones and Medavoy interview the dead women's therapist, who does tell them that her patient was seeing an older man who was providing for her.

Tony tells Angela that he's made arrangements for her to move into a clean living program. She tells him she will go and he tells her will take her there tonight. Photos from the videotape arrive, revealing the victim having sex with someone who'll become their prime suspect when they bring him in. Meanwhile, a woman who knows Michael comes in to talk with the detectives and perhaps give them a lead on finding him. She confirms with them that she has heard Michael say the phrase "she can't breathe." Rodriguez breaks into the interview to tell them that Michael was picked up vandalize his father's home again. Jones and Medavoy start their interview with their prime suspect, the victim's adopted father, who they show a photo of him having relations with his adopted daughter. His response is to lawyer up and stop talking. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. retrieve Michael and bring him back to the precinct. McDowell and Ortiz talk their prime suspect's doctor, who because of confidentiality will not give them anything. With the father and his doctor not talking, Rodriguez suggests that they have a talk with their suspect's wife, to see if she knows about the relationship and if that will give them anything further to work with. As the prime suspect's doctor is leaving, Sipowicz asks if he cares enough to help them with talking to Michael, who the detectives can't seem to get through to. The doctor agrees to help and with the two detectives they get Michael to indicate what he means by the phrase "she can't breathe." They realize that Michael witnessed his father smothering his mother to death, many years earlier. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Michael's dad to talk with him about the suffocation. Something he did to help relieve his wife from the pain of the terminal cancer she was battling.

A man, Gordon Dillit, and his wife come in to report that he was mugged and his wife's antique watch was stolen. As he is still in a good mood from the morning's events, Sipowicz says the man is a "hen pecked slob." Jones and Medavoy interview the man who might be the father of their victim and he confirms for them that it is his daughter. Medavoy notes that the man doesn't seem to be affected in anyway by his daughter's death. Ortiz and McDowell are on the scene of the death of a "tranny pros" named "Lana" where Sipowicz and Clark Jr. join them. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk to the hotel manager and he gives them a license plate number to check; but Sipowicz's conduct at the scene, that is in the questioning of the manager and his interaction with his fellow detectives this morning, especially McDowell, leave much too be desired. Jones and Medavoy are off to visit the boyfriend of their victim, as the other detectives return to the squad. They report to Rodriguez that they got a hit off the license plate, it belonged Dillit, the man they saw earlier that morning. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. have a conversation with Dillit. They inform his that the prostitute was a transvestite. Dillit tells them that not long after he and the prostitute had set a price, another man entered the room and held him at knife point, planning to keep him until midnight, when he could get Dillit to use his ATM card again. He tells them that he got out of the room, when the prostitute and the man with the knife got into a fight. When he came in to report the missing watch, he didn't want his wife to know about the prostitute. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's boyfriend who tells them he doesn't know where she is. When they inform her that she is dead, his reaction isn't such that makes them suspicious of him, but they ask him to stick around until they check out his story. The detectives are bringing Rodriguez up to speed on their case when a woman comes into the squad asking to speak to someone about the Yusuf murder case. Jones and Medavoy talk with the woman who says she is the victim's cousin and she tells them that the she overheard her uncle tell her father that he killed his daughter as an "honor killing." They ask for her further cooperation, but promise to keep her out of it, if at all possible. John Irvin passes a message on to Sipowicz from Clark Jr. about their case. Sipowicz asks him how he likes living in his new apartment, telling him that he's heard rumors they are cracking down on cohabitating detectives. John Irvin tells Sipowicz that he doesn't want to tell him how to live his life, but he think about giving his current situation some time to work itself out. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk to Randy, the man that "Lana" had made several phone calls to the night before. This man picks up the fact the "Lana" is dead and tells them Gordon Dillit did it. He denies running a "Murphy Game" on Dillit and claims that when he came in, Dillit ran out covered in blood. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's father again, only this time as a suspect. The father denies killing his daughter, but he does admit to telling people that he killed his daughter, in order to get respect back in his community. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. run their case by Haywood, but they are still waiting for McDowell and Ortiz to bring in the woman that Dillet claimed he ran by when exiting the building. McDowell and Ortiz bring in and talk with "Monika" who tells them she saw a man leave the place with blood on his pants; she also says she saw the man who looked out for "Lana." Jones and Medavoy canvas the area where a knife was found that may have been used in their victim's murder. They encounter a crazy homeless man, who tells them about someone named "Derrick," but they also find their victim's wallet amongst the homeless man's possessions. Back at the squad, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go to have another conversation with Dillit; they tell him that they know he is homophobe. They tell him about the "Monika" backing up Randy's story; they suggest that if he wants to get out from under this, he'd better give them permission to search his clothes. Jones and Medavoy tell Rodriguez about the outcome of their case, the boyfriend and the father are both going to be let go and the homeless man charged. The detectives find more evidence that points toward Randy as "Lana"'s killer, he had a past history with "Monika" and also was seen pawning the watch earlier this morning. With this new evidence in hand, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back at Randy. With evidence mounting against him, Randy confesses the truth. As the boyfriend and father are leaving the precinct, the father realizes that his daughter's death was his fault, as he wasn't strong enough to make her behave like a "proper woman." Back upstairs, McDowell gets ready to leave, but Sipowicz tells her he will be another hour, maybe more. After she leaves, Clark Jr. tells him the 5s can wait, but the problem he is avoiding isn't going to go away, he inevitably has to face it. Dillit comes upstairs and is able to retrieve his wife's watch, he comments to Sipowicz that sitting in the cell today made him realize how precious his relationship with his wife is. And finally John Irvin passes onto to Sipowicz the name of great florist who does wonderful things with "Gerber Daisies." At the Sipowicz/McDowell household, with daisies in hand, Andy returns home, where Connie has made them a nice dinner. They decide that they have been fighting about nothing that really matters. They agree to start over again.moreless

At the crime scene, the detectives encounter Julian Pisano, the snitch who led them to finding Sorenson's body. Julian was shot in the arm, but heard his shooter also cry out in pain. Sipowicz asks him to go alphabetically through the list of people who would want to see him killed. He tells them about "The Dentist" a man he may have recently screwed over in a deal. They tell him to go to the hospital and stay there. Back at the squad, McDowell tells Ortiz about her encounter with Theo, which John Irvin overhears. McDowell asks Sipowicz how Theo was when he dropped him off at school. Sipowicz tells her that Theo insisted that he be dropped off at Hooters. Jones and Medavoy interview "The Dentist" who tells them about the bad deal he had with Julian, but denies wanting to kill him over it. McDowell and Ortiz respond to the scene of a robbery where a woman was conned out of $100 and insists on talking to a detective. The woman is insistent on having the detectives look into her case. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Julian in the pokey room; he'd already left the hospital, despite them asking to stay. He tells them he was out trying to find information. He tells them about a man at the place where he wife used to work. That man had made some inappropriate comments regarding Julian's wife and his subsequent confrontation of that man, may have led that man to hire someone to kill him. A man comes into the squad telling the detectives that he caught the morning's shooting on videotape. He'll give it to him, as long as he can retain exclusive rights to the tape. The woman, whose case that McDowell and Ortiz are working, comes in with more information for the detectives. They take the woman up to anti-crime to look at mug shots. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with the man, who they have on the videotape shooting Julian. He tells them that after he fired his gun, his back locked up on him. He also tells them that he was hired by Julian's wife and her lover to kill him. Rodriguez talks with McDowell and Ortiz about the status of their case; it seems their complainant has raised the profile of the case up to the Chief of Detectives. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. tell Julian about his wife and her lover's plot to kill him. He doesn't believe it. They try to get him to calm down enough to help them with their plan to capture his wife on tape confessing to setup the hit. At their complainant's apartment, McDowell and Ortiz find out about her from her neighbor. She had lost her son to a drunk driver, three weeks earlier. The detectives plan to fake Julian's death, so they can use the photos when they meet with his wife later. Jones and Medavoy are going to take Julian to an alley, where they will meet Sipowicz and Clark Jr., but first Clark Jr. wants to stop by his father's home to see if he can find out why his father has been out of touch. At his father's home he and Sipowicz find that his father has apparently committed suicide. Clark Jr. is shocked at this turn of events; Sipowicz calls it in and then looks around for cleaning supplies for the gun. Sipowicz talks to the 45 Supervisor and seems to convince him that the death was accidental, that it occurring during the cleaning of Clark Sr.'s gun. Ortiz arrives at the scene. Sipowicz comes back to the squad, pissed off about what Clark Sr.'s actions may have done to his son. John Irvin asks if there was a note, Sipowicz emphasizes the fact it was an accidental shooting. Sipowicz joins a cold Jones and Medavoy in the alley and tells them about Clark Jr.'s father and finds out that Julian is no longer with them. Sipowicz knows where to find Julian and does. He talks him out of shooting him; he gets him back to the alley where they stage his death. Back at the late John Clark Sr.'s home, Rita tries to help John deal with his father's death. The detectives prepare to capture Julian's wife on tape. Haywood tells them what she needs to hear on the tape to make sure Julian's wife and her lover go down for the crime. She also hears about the gun cleaning accident. Sipowicz meets with Julian's wife and shows him the pictures. He gets the money from her and gets her to confess to the crime and implicate her lover as well. Julian whose been listening in with Jones and Medavoy takes great delight in showing his wife that he is still alive after the detectives collar her. Back at the squad, Julian thanks the detectives for helping him out. The woman that McDowell and Ortiz were working with earlier in the day arrives at the precinct. McDowell asks the others for $20, so that she can give the woman the money and tell her that the perp ran off. Medavoy asks if they can do anything else to help sell her and she suggests one of them act as the boyfriend of the perp, who can then give her the money back. Julian Pisano, who is still in the squad room, volunteers as a token of his thanks. McDowell brings the woman into the room, where Julian acts instead as the perp's husband. The woman accepts the money and then gets off her chest was has been on her mind, likely since her son's tragic death. Julian in turns gets emotional when he talks about his wife's actions. John and Rita arrive at his apartment, and they find an envelope with his name on it outside of his door. The envelope contains a videotape, which John watches in his apartment alone.

      Sinclair has brought to the stand Hector Acevedo, the man who Rodriguez roughed up when he found it was Acevedo who broke into his mother's apartment and robbed and beat her. Then he calls Det. Olivera to the stand, the one witness to Rodriguez's treatment of Acevedo. Haywood asks for a sidebar and gets sometime to prepare for this witness, whose testimony might be damaging, but Rodriguez isn't worried. The detectives are on the scene of the assault of Ron Szudarek. They interview the victim's next door neighbor, but the guilt on his face is only caused by the fact he is smoking behind his wife's back. Back at the squad there is discussion about Olivera and the trial as well as what information they've gathered on their case. Medavoy and Jones are reported to be on their way to interview Bob Drazin, an employee of the victim's barber shop. In the meantime, a woman comes into the squad to report that her husband is missing; Sipowicz and Clark agree to look into it for her, even though the guy hasn't been missing for a full 48 hours. Jones and Medavoy interview the employee who points to the landlady of their building and her two degenerate sons. Sinclair begins questioning Olivera about the details of the Acevedo's arrest and even when she is asked if she knows about it, she sticks to the "blue wall of silence." Sipowicz and Clark interview Corey Mack, a cousin of the missing man. He tells them about his cousin's girl on the side. He offers to make some phone calls to help his cousin turn up. Jones and Medavoy report back that they were unable to talk to the landlady, let alone her two "deadbeat" sons. The hospital reports that Szudarek has regained consciousness. Sipowicz cuts off Medavoy before he gives his daily report on what he's heard about the trial. Medavoy doesn't like the censorship he is being subjected to. A report comes in that Andrea Miner was assaulted in her apartment. Sipowicz and Clark go to the scene and Andrea tells them about the two men that assaulted her, but she also keeps pointing them back to her husband's cousin Corey. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Szudarek who tells them that his landlady's sons didn't do it; he was beaten and tortured by black men. Two men beat him, while the third man on the scene was "a pussy." He also tells them that his employee Bob Drazin owes him $10,000. Sinclair has Fraker on the stand and he paints an entirely different picture of the events that transpired in Rodriguez's apartment. Haywood does her cross examination of Fraker, and on Sinclair's redirect he makes it known that the only time he ever fired his weapon on the job, was in Rodriguez's office. Drazin is brought back in for questioning and Jones and Medavoy talk with him again. They know about his recent run of bad luck. He admits to hiring someone to rough up and rob his boss. The plan wasn't supposed to get as brutal as it did. The man he hired for the job was Troy Miner and thus the two cases converge. Sipowicz and Clark go back to talk to the Corey Mack, who gives them a location where Miner might be found. The detectives go to that location and find Miner and his two accomplices. The accomplices are holding Miner hostage and they all get into a car and speed away. Sipowicz and Clark go into pursuit mode and eventually the fugitive's car makes a wrong move and collides with a cab. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Miner who tells them about his current financial and family situation. He talks about a plan that was to involve his cousin, but he cut him out went onto hire the two accomplices himself. He also implicates his wife's involvement in the planning of the day's activities. Haywood does her closing argument and then Sinclair does his. Now it is in the hands of the jury. Back at the squad Clark offers to buy Rodriguez a beer to help him get his mind off the case. All the detectives join them, except Sipowicz whose appearance will be delayed when Andrea Miner returns to the squad. Sipowicz tells her what went down with her husband and that he doesn't plan on locking her up on account of the kids. Later down at the bar, Medavoy finishes telling one of his stories and Rodriguez decides it is time to leave. Everyone else begins to follow suit. Ortiz catches up with Rodriguez to get a ride home. They take a detour to the seaport, where Rodriguez begins to eulogize his career, but Ortiz is optimistic that the jury will come to the right decision.moreless

      Angela comes into Tony's office and tells she does want something after all; she wants him to take a look a spot on her inner thigh where she thinks she was injured on the subway this morning. As his office isn't the right place for that sort of activity, he takes her into the observation room for a look and then some. At the scene of a homicide where the detectives have all gathered, one of the uniforms recognizes the victim as one of the precinct's auxiliary cops, her name is Heather Peterson, who is 17-years-old. At the squad they report in on what they know so far and start to go through Heather's affects. McDowell and Ortiz are sent out to a firebombing of car. The owner of the car and his sister isn't very forthcoming with useful information. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their victim's last known boyfriend, who she had an order of protection against. He consents to search of things, which turns up nothing for the detectives. Haywood talks with Jones about her grandmother who she believes is getting involved in a phone scam. Her grandmother doesn't want any help from her; in fact she threatens to stop to speaking to her if she does. Jones agrees to look into it for her. McDowell and Ortiz can't find anything to go with what their firebomb victims told them, then a call comes in about a stabbing, where the victim is located just across the street from the firebombed car they looked into earlier. Medavoy reports that Heather's diary contains the names and contact information for numerous uniforms within the precinct. They also realize that the girl's diary records her encounters with other officers in the precinct. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview the captain of the auxiliary unit Heather was assigned to. They produce the girl's diary and talk with him about his relationship with her, and also suggest to him that he step down from his post. McDowell and Ortiz arrive at the scene and encounter a stabbing victim who isn't very forthcoming with information about who stabbed him or who may have provided him with the beating he was subjected to. Jones meets with Haywood's grandmother and finds out that she has in fact been the victim of a phone scam. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Shannon, who admits to having relations with Heather, and later Laughlin, who won't admit to having any relationship with her, since he doesn't trust the detectives. He tells them where he was, but won't admit to any relationship with the girl, not without his delegate and lawyer present. Even though they have just returned to the squad, McDowell and Ortiz are sent back down to the street of the firebombing, where shots have been reported fired. They encounter the brother and sister from the morning's firebombing, who don't have anything useful information to offer them here either. As an end result, the pair is taken back to the precinct for questioning. Medavoy interviews Craig Rall, a man whose car was seen near the scene of Heather's death. Jones starts questioning the man who'd been calling Haywood's grandmother, who is initially in denial of the scam, but changes his story when he finds out that his victim's granddaughter is in the DA's office. He doesn't have all the money, since he's been using it to pay gambling debts, but will return what he has left. After questioning Rall and looking into the contents of his car and finding nothing there, it is decided to let him go. Laughlin returns to the squad, and decides to tell Sipowicz and Clark Jr. about a man he knew was hassling Heather. It turns out to be the man that Medavoy just released to the street, Craig Rall. With Rall's address in hand and annoyed with Laughlin's reluctance to come forward sooner, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go after him. McDowell and Ortiz talk with the brother and find out that he's been getting into it with their stabbing victim, because he believed that his sister was rape by that man. They talk with the sister, who tells them that she let her brother believe that, as she didn't want him to know the truth. The girl is anxious to get home, as she knows that her father is about to return and since he won't know what the truth is, he make matters worse for the stabbing victim. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. arrive at Rall's apartment, and after a shot is fired and Rall is wounded they get him to tell them what went on (or rather didn't go on) between him and Heather. McDowell and Ortiz get back to the firebomb street in time to talk the girl's father out of doing additional harm to their stabbing victim. Haywood finds out what Jones did for her grandmother; for his effort she offers him dinner sometime. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. have a follow up conversation with Laughlin, telling him that he isn't any good for the job and he should think about getting out of police work in the next two days, otherwise they are going to get IAB involved in his relationship with Heather. Tony has dinner with Angela and they decide to take it slow. John finds his father at the usual bar/restaurant where he will eventually tell his father about the day's events with the uniforms and the auxiliary cop and how they were able to keep IAB out of it. John also finds out from the bartender that his father's been drinking there heavily every night. After a hard game of "Hungry, Hungry Hippo," Andy and Connie talk with Theo about the possibility of their moving in with Connie and the baby.

      Sipowicz and Clark Jr. are on the scene of the death of a caseworker in child services, it's not clear whether she committed suicide or was the victim of foul play. The uniforms on the scene and back at the house have copped an attitude towards the detectives; it seems that those officers who had admitted to their relations with the auxiliary cop are going to be questioned by IAB. Both Sipowicz and Clark Jr. deny to them that they contacted IAB. With murder a possibility, the detectives receive the dead caseworker's files to begin sorting through. An old member of the squad's widow, Ruth Dwyer comes in to talk with Sipowicz about her husband's last wish, which was to have half of his ashes buried or spread somewhere at the 15th squad. He agrees to try and help her out after he runs it by the boss. Rodriquez isn't comfortable with the notion and plans to run it by building services and in the meantime, Sipowicz is going to talk to Eddie Gibson, who might better remember Dwyer because Sipowicz doesn't. Medavoy and Jones start one of the many interviews of parents who were dissatisfied with the caseworker, as she had their child (or children) removed from their home. This first parent, whose behavior they don't like, surprises them by telling them that he and his wife regained custody of their children, despite the victim. They later contemplate with Haywood whether they can do anything about that situation. Andrew Taylor comes to talk with Rodriguez about his relationship with his ex-wife, Angela, which of course is also Rodriguez's ex-wife. Taylor tells him about his missing BMW and how he believes that she stole it recently for her cocaine habit. McDowell and Ortiz talk with another disgruntled parent, this one is HIV positive, as is her daughter. Medavoy and Jones talked with another disgruntled parent and he wants a lawyer to make sure the system doesn't railroad him again. The case files are depressing to the detectives. Rodriguez reports that building maintenance will not allow the ashes to be spread at the squad, due to health code violations. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. encounter Laughlin in the lobby on their way out to pick up a disgruntled parent who hasn't returned their calls. Laughlin makes accusations which Sipowicz denies and tells him and the uniforms they had nothing to gain from it and if there are anymore comments, they will be taking it outside. McDowell and Ortiz talk to a father, Richard Webb, whose liberated sexual values had gotten his son taken away. This man shows no remorse, but a little smirk when he hears about the caseworker's death. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. have their talk with a man who they were waiting for the call back from. The detectives are only a quarter of the way through the files and everyone seems like a suspect. Dwyer's widow returns to find out if anything can be done with her husband's ashes. They regret to inform her that they can't do anything at the squad; Sipowicz offers an alternative that the widow rejects. McDowell and Ortiz talk with yet another disgruntled parent. The ME rules against suicide for the caseworker, Sipowicz finds out that the gun used was part of a shipment of guns that ATF is trying to track down. ATF tells them the name of a bartender that they can question. Martens from IAB stops by the squad and the detectives want to know where the uniforms got the idea that they ratted them out. Martens' denies that is was any of the cops that flipped, which only means it was an informant. Medavoy and Jones talk with another disgruntled parent, but this one has bipolar disorder, which makes for an interesting interview. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with bartender about ATF and the guns. The bartender wants them to show him the videotape. They get off on the wrong foot, but when they start over he relents and picks out a photo of the "idiot" he sold one of the stolen guns to the week before. Eddie Gibson shows up at the squad and Sipowicz fills him in on Paul Dwyer. Gibson tells them that Dwyer saved his life; he feels that they need to do right by Dwyer. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with their prime suspect, Richard Webb, who eventually tells them that he was the vessel that facilitated the victim's karma. Haywood tells the detectives that there is little they can do about that first father they interviewed; she was only able to ask that he be watched. The detectives are preparing to go home, when building maintenance shows up to fix a plumbing in the bathroom, Sipowicz gets on the phone to Dwyer's widow, while John Irvin goes to take of Theo. Tony talks with Angela about his encounter with her ex, the car and whether or not she is still using. She says it is not his car and she denies using; she's been in rehab, she does counseling and she's clean. At the Clark Sr. residence, John stops by to talk with father about IAB and the uniforms. He knows that his father is the only one that he told the story to; his father breaks down and confesses that he is the one that informed IAB. He tells of their threats against his pension and his son's career, he had to give IAB something. John wonders what they are going to do now. The widow Dwyer, Sipowicz and the maintenance man make sure that Paul Dwyer is a permanent part of the 15th squad. His ashes are mixed in the cement used in the bathroom tile.moreless

When the cab's plates are run, it is revealed to be Ryan Lipe, the cab driver that helped them out on the baby shooting case a few weeks earlier. Also at the scene, Officer Laughlin asks Clark Jr. about Ortiz's dating status, to which he is reminded that Ortiz just buried her husband a week earlier and that he might want to remove his wedding ring before he starts hitting on her. Ryan Lipe is brought in and Sipowicz and Clark Jr. question him; Lipe claims that the shooting was in self defense. After the interview, Sipowicz asks John Irvin about whether he had made any attempt to talk with his father, to which John tells him about his attempt to talk with his father. An old friend of Rodriguez's stops by to ask him for a favor, looking into a situation that his son was in. Rodriguez agrees to look into it; his friend then tries to leave him an envelope of money, which Rodriguez gives back to him, telling him that as a friend he was going to look into it. Jones and Medavoy have been sent to investigate the beating death of a man outside of a bar; the victim's companion, who a witness, reports was beaten down by a large black man. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. along with Haywood and Rodriguez decide that Ryan Lipe can be let go, since they don't have enough to hold him on at this point. In the precinct lobby, Laughlin makes a play for Ortiz, which Clark Jr. comments on as he's leaving the house. Jones and Medavoy interview their witness, an ex-boxer who denies that he killed the guy he's been hanging around with lately, who was an ex-ballet dancer. The ex-boxer was acting as a companion for the victim. Rodriguez starts to follow up on the favor. The man he interviews says that if there is some financial consideration, he might be willing to compromise. Rodriguez starts smelling the rat squad and leaves. Andy finally tells Connie about Theo and his Disney World demand and she offers to come along. Ballistics comes back on Lipe's gun, two more bodies are found on it from the previous month. John's sister stops by to talk, which John tells her he just can't do right now. She is able to tell John that his father would like to talk with him. Ryan Lipe is brought back in and they tell him about the other shootings, which he attributes to the further conspiracies of the NYPD against him. Lipe finally tells them that he bought the gun off of a fare. Rodriguez talks to his friend about the favor and the money. Rodriguez then uncovers the wire his friend is wearing. IAB comes in and puts Rodriguez under suspension. Fraker tells Rodriguez that his failure to report the bribe attempt is a violation of department policy. Rodriguez feels like the "whole thing played out more like a personal vendetta." Jones and Medavoy interview the large black man that was called an ape; but he only admits to slapping the victim. Meanwhile, McDowell and Ortiz interview a woman who saw the beating outside the bar. She tells them the large black man did slap the guy once, but it was the victim's companion who had knocked him down to the ground. Clark Jr. finds out there was a witness in one of the previous shootings with Lipe's gun, so he goes to interview her. Back at the squad the detectives have been wondering what's going on with Rodriguez, when he comes back to the squad to clear out his stuff. Rodriguez tells them that IAB has a groundless case against him, but that he's clean and that the department is sending them a replacement. Sipowicz probes further, but gets nothing from Rodriguez. Jones and Medavoy re-interview their victim's companion, who finally tells them that the victim had accused him of being a "bigger fairy than he ever was," when he didn't punch the black guy who slapped his companion. His retaliation to that comment was to punch his companion. Laughlin challenges Clark Jr. to fight him in the precinct's smoker, a charity boxing match. Clark Jr. reiterates his position on Laughlin's need to layoff of Ortiz. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. re-interview Ryan Lipe, who they tell about the witness to one of the earlier shootings. They try to help him to get his story straight, while he still has a chance of being heard. The detectives discuss what's happening with Rodriguez and agree to keep in touch if they hear anything. Ortiz, who's already heard about the fight, talks with Clark Jr. who says it's no big deal. Ortiz says that someone standing up for her is a big deal and she thanks him. John stops by the hospital to the visit with his father, who says he is on his death bed. Together they finally come to understanding. Sipowicz meets with Martens, to find out what the story is with Rodriguez and Fraker. From what Martens knows, years ago in undercover narcotics, Rodriguez had made a report that wound up getting Fraker assigned to the rat squad.moreless

      Officer Laughlin is back on the job when the detectives arrive on the scene of the murder of a carjacker. The carjacker was shot in a struggle with an unknown man who went running off after the shot was fired. The carjacking victim, Denise Woodson is anxious when the detectives have to keep her car to process the crime scene. McDowell and Ortiz go to the last known address of the DOA to see what they can find. What they find is a filthy apartment that has three small children in the bathroom. Crime scene reports to Sipowicz that they found two ounces of cocaine in Woodson's car, they leave to bring Woodson in. Rita is planning a rendezvous for John, and she asks John Irvin to help her with the conspiracy. Rodriguez gets a call from Queens, and they want him to report to a crime scene. Jones and Medavoy go to talk with the social worker who's been handling the welfare of the three children. He asks them what happened to the fourth. He tells them he will get them the file on the children, as soon as he can find it; but more importantly where they might find the mother, if she has begun using again. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson and ask her about the cocaine. She claims to know nothing about it and they tell her because it was found in her car, it is hers, unless she can tell them something otherwise. She gives them the name of her boss and the musician she was going to deliver the package to. Rodriguez gets to Queens and finds out that Angela is dead. She may have been doing speedballs of heroin, but he doesn't believe that and wants crime scene to process the site and do a full workup. He wants the truth about her death uncovered. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson's boss, who denies any knowledge of the cocaine. He does tell them that she has a brother who just recently got out of prison for drugs. They decide he might be worth looking into. John Irvin attempts to pass a message onto to Clark Jr. about an "in service" training session he needs to attend at the Hyatt in Mid-Town. Clark Jr. asks to see if it can be rescheduled, John Irvin says he'll try. Rodriguez returns and a witness to the carjacking indicates that Woodson talked with the unknown for a good 20 seconds before he left the scene of the carjacking. McDowell and Ortiz have found the abandoned children's mother, Joyce Bradovich and they bring her in for questioning. She tells them she left her baby with her cousin. Then she finds out they visited her apartment. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Woodson's brother and he tells them what went down. They don't believe him, but despite that he offers to have it all put on him, so his sister won't suffer. When they ask how much cocaine there was, he misses it by two ounces, so it isn't going to go on him. McDowell and Ortiz visit the apartment of Bradovich's cousin and find out that her baby isn't there. Rodriguez talks with Andrew Taylor about their investigation into Angela's death and he tries to find from him if he knew she was doing heroine. McDowell and Ortiz go back at Bradovich about the whereabouts of her baby. She tells them she hasn't been visited by her social worker in over a year. She finally tells them that she left the baby on the roof of her building. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. try to make a deal with Woodson to help her out, but she wants to "bet her life" that her musician boyfriend will stand up for her and tell the truth. Up on the roof, Ortiz finds the baby. They go back to Bradovich and tell her they know the baby has been dead at least a week. Bradovich confesses to having burned the baby to death when she was trying to give it a hot bath. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. run their case by Haywood, which is probably going to go the way they suspect, Woodson will go down for the possession on her own. Before he leaves Rodriguez's office, Sipowicz gets Rodriguez to tell him what's been going on that has mind elsewhere. Sipowicz tells Rodriguez that he can talk to him anytime. McDowell and Ortiz try to run the possibility of charging the social worker with child endangerment with Haywood. She tells the best they'll be able to do is get him fired. The social worker arrives, with his paperwork and demonstrates to the detectives his ignorance of the some of the children in his files. He only manages to piss McDowell off. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson's boyfriend, who won't back up her story. As they expected, they have to take her to central booking to be processed. That evening, Rodriguez goes to visit his former in-laws to give them the bad news about Angela. John goes to the hotel for his training session and is delighted to find Rita is there instead.

      The detectives are on the scene of a transvestite's murder. They know the victim's friend "Monika" from a case from the previous year and when Sipowicz's charm doesn't work with that friend, McDowell and Ortiz step in and take over the interview and ultimately the case. Haywood has Martens on the stand, where he tells them about the unusual activity that IAB has had with 15th precinct. He also talks about Fraker's state of mind on the day of the Rodriguez shooting. Sipowicz and Clark go to the hospital where a surgeon was knifed. Dr. Devlin asks Clark for special attention on this case, as the surgeon was a great teacher for her. The doctor, has trouble remembering what his attacker looked like, he only remembers the knife. Back at the squad, Rodriguez tells them that the doctor once did some work for someone the mayor knows, so the case is high profile. Jones learns from hospital security that Nathan Dale might be someone worth talking to in the surgeon's stabbing as he had a confrontation with the doctor a few weeks back. Medavoy reports what he's heard about the trial and gives the current odds at 2:1 for the prosecution. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Josh McCain, a man who may be more than a friend of their transvestite victim. Sipowicz and Clark manage to find Nathan Dale and bring him in. Sipowicz and Clark interview Dale, who claims he was sleeping at the time the doctor was stabbed. The other detectives talk with Monika (who's sitting in Sipowicz's seat) about her dead friend's relationship with Josh and a one his co-workers named Rick. Seeing that Monika had been sitting in his seat, Sipowicz switches chairs with Medavoy. After he is brought in, Medavoy and Jones talk with Rick, who after a little persuasion starts to take apart Josh's alibi. Sipowicz and Clark talk again with Dale, who they present with his rap sheet, which proves he's used his knife before in muggings. Haywood has Fraker's ex-girlfriend on the stand and she talks about her history with him and her possible subsequent sexual harassment lawsuit against Fraker. McDowell and Ortiz go back at Josh, telling him his alibi has fallen apart. He confesses to this "crime of passion," the passion part of which he denies. He tells them about Melissa's stash of cash for her eventual sex-change operation. Sipowicz and Clark try to work with Dale to get together a package statement that will get him a deal for the recent muggings and the stabbing of the doctor. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Monika about Melissa's missing money. Monika tells them that he has sent the money to his son (who is destitute along with his mother) and that he doesn't intend of getting that money back. The doctor fails to ID Dale in a lineup, but the detectives tell him not to worry, since they have a guy who has already confessed to the crime. This statement seems to take the doctor by surprise. Rodriguez takes the stand and tells in a matter of fact way what happened. On his cross-examination, Sinclair tries to bring up facts from Rodriguez's past including complaints from civilians and incidents with his late ex-wife. Haywood's objections during the cross are the only thing that seems to help Rodriguez during this time, but Sinclair has definitely gotten him rattled. Rodriguez returns and nixes McDowell and Ortiz's thoughts that Monika should be let go. The doctor returns to the squad wanting to know what is going to happen to the man who has confessed to knifing him. They lay it for him and he tells them the story of his wife, who current medical condition has drained his financial resources. The doctor confesses that he has cut himself for the insurance money. They tell the doctor to go to the hospital, have his scheduled surgery and wait there. Sipowicz and Clark report to Rodriguez the latest development. Rodriguez wants them to just take care of this latest development and leave him out of it for the moment, as he has enough on his mind. Ortiz comes into Rodriguez's office and offers to give him someone to talk with. He agrees and also tells her that whatever she and McDowell decide to do with Monika is okay with him. While Sipowicz and Clark try to figure out how to adjust Dale's statement, John Irvin comes back into the squad reporting that a bus has hit the doctor. Sipowicz and Clark go down to the scene, where the doctor's final words to them are that his will is in the hands of his attorney. Rodriguez and Ortiz walk home together and discuss the case, but he tells her the only way he can get through this is to just keep going forward. She tells him that she is there if he needs her.moreless

      The detectives begin investigating the death of a doctor and at the crime scene Sipowicz tries to avoid having any discussion with McDowell about the kiss from the previous night. Back at the squad, John Irvin introduces the temporary who will be filling in for him during his African safari. The temp PAA is a struggling screenwriter which piques Medavoy's interest. When another case comes up, Sipowicz declines any immediate assistance from McDowell and Ortiz who are going to help out with both investigations. At the crime scene of the second case, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. run into a well meaning rookie cop, who may have made their case harder to solve. One of the deceased doctor's colleagues comes in for some questioning and mentions his colleagues' free charity work. The deceased doctor had a prescription for a patient named Angela Stokes in his pocket; not recognizing that name his colleague suspects that Angela was a patient of the doctor's charity work. The doctor's colleague asks to be kept up to date on the progress of the case. Medavoy talks to the temp PAA about screenwriting and the stories that Medavoy has to tell. When second case's victim is identified with a name of Tureek, it turns out to be one of two men that Sipowicz had collared for a robbery/homicide 20 years earlier; only back then Tureek's name was Marvin. Angela Stokes is brought in and McDowell and Ortiz question her, she seems surprised at the news when she hears that her doctor is dead. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. meet with their victim's parole officer who tells them about all the great things for the community Tureek has done since serving his time for the crime that Sipowicz arrested him for 20 years ago. They also find out that Tureek had become reacquainted with his partner, Eric Green, from the robbery/homicide. They bring Eric Green in for questioning and he points to a kid who was recently fired. The temp PAA asks Medavoy if he has any ideas. A tip comes in about someone selling pharmaceuticals that match a description given by several witnesses. Medavoy and Jones go to sit on the clinic and wait for their suspect to show up. Rodriguez lets the temp PAA know what the rules are in his squad. Ortiz's pager keeps going off; her soon-to-be ex-husband is harassing her. The temp PAA's attitude is driving John Irvin crazy. The recently fired man is brought for questioning, which leads nowhere. Meanwhile, Jones and Medavoy grab up their suspect. The junkie is brought up to the squad. Haywood meets with Jones in the hallway and she tells him that she is going to be taking some time off. She reveals to him that she had miscarried yesterday. Jones is discouraged that she never contacted him. Rather than take some time to take it all in, Jones goes into an interview with Medavoy and their suspect; although Jones isn't really getting into the interview. Their suspect gives them the name of a junkie/prostitute named Baby Doll. John Irvin asks Sipowicz for some advice about the temp PAA he doesn't like, his pending vacation that requires flight and his relationship with Ray Maxwell. Sipowicz tells him to just go on his vacation and enjoy himself. The detectives raid the apartment where expect to find Baby Doll. Baby Doll is brought in for question and cites the doctor's perversions (never specified) as her reason for committing his murder. She also mentions the deal that the doctor had with Angela Stokes and the prescription forms. Angela would get half of the prescribed dose. Marvin's burnt out car is found and Eric Green fits the description of the person leaving the scene as the fire started. Green won't talk with Sipowicz in the room and Clark Jr. says something that causes their questioning to stop. Sipowicz gives Clark Jr. grief for blowing the interview for him. Now Clark Jr. is going to have to go back in the room and hope he gets lucky. With Sipowicz out of the room, Eric Green opens up and expresses his anger at Marvin for taking 15 years out of his life. McDowell and Ortiz bring Angela Stokes up to speed on her position in the death of her doctor. John Irvin leaves for his vacation. Sipowicz tells the temp PAA how things are going to be run in the office starting tomorrow. The doctor comes back to find out the progress on the case and is a first annoyed at not being kept up to speed, only to be glad of it when he infers that his colleague wasn't the man he though he was. Clark Jr. apologizes to Sipowicz for blowing his interview. Medavoy apologizes to Jones for his behavior of the past couple of weeks and gets an invitation to watch the Knick game. A drunken Don Harrison stops by the bar where Ortiz, Rodriguez and Clark Jr. are having a drink and he makes a scene. He tells her that they have now become enemies. Sipowicz and McDowell have the discussion that he'd been avoiding all day. He's worried about their age difference and she mentions that she's never going to be able to have a child of her own. He realizes that the relationship is more about her spending time with Theo.moreless

      The detectives start investigating the robbery of deli, where the owner was killed. Back at the squad, Sipowicz has done some thinking this past week since the hostage situation. He wants McDowell to join him and Theo on their trip to Disneyworld, despite what others in the squad might think. So McDowell puts in her vacation request with Rodriguez. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview the son of their victim. Then they meet with Det. Frank Hughes from the robbery squad who tells them that he knows who their perp is, Terence Cates. A man comes to the squad to report that his sister may be in trouble. McDowell and Ortiz interview the man who reports that a priest wants a $1000 to get her out of trouble. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Terence Cates and Hughes tells them that the victim's son identified Cates from the mug book. They plan to interview Cates to find out for themselves. So there isn't any mystery, Sipowicz announces to the squad that he and McDowell are going to Disneyworld with Theo and if anyone wants to bust their balls, they'd better do it now. Rodriguez says "have a good time." Sipowicz and Clark Jr. start interviewing Cates, who claims that he "didn't do no murder." McDowell and Ortiz discuss relationships as do Medavoy and Jones, while they stakeout the rendezvous with the priest. Their recording off the payoff goes bad, when a passing garbage truck obscures their sound. Back at the squad, Det. Hughes almost taints the lineup ID of Cates, by the victim's son. The priest is brought in and is exposed for being a fraud. He tells them about the girl's need to pay off a debt. A fingerprint is found on a pack of cigarettes left on the counter at the deli, that lead to another possible suspect, so Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back to the son to reconfirm his story, which he does, leaving them with something more to ponder. The other detectives locate the sister who may have put the "priest" up to con. Sipowicz tells Hughes about their fingerprint. They also find out that the victim's son didn't make the 911 call from the deli; he did it from two blocks away. They re-interview the son, who picks out their real suspect, the one whose fingerprint they found. McDowell and Ortiz interview the sister, who is worried that her brother might find out what she's been doing. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. locate their new suspect and they bring him in for questioning. He is less than cooperative. McDowell and Ortiz reunite the brother with her sister, and then she tells them her story, which essentially has her as a sex slave to the owner of the massage parlor. The massage parlor owner also implicates the "priest", who offers up them up some names. Haywood tells them that their witnesses recanting of his previous ID and a new ID in the same day isn't going to hold up. They find out that their suspect's brother was also at the scene, and they use that information to get their suspect to flip. Det Hughes, missing for most of the day, finally shows up back up at the squad, only to have his balls busted by Sipowicz. Later that night, John and Rita further consummate their relationship and Andy and Connie try to help Theo pack.moreless

      Fraker is on trial for the attempted murder of Rodriguez. Haywood is for the prosecution and Sipowicz's old "friend" James Sinclair represents Fraker. For Sinclair's part, he lays out a defense that makes it look like Fraker and IAB were getting ready to take down the corrupt 15 Squad. The detectives hear about Fraker's defense plans, but at Sipowicz's direction start to concentrate on the case at hand. Freddie Langford is the brother of murder victim and he reveals himself to the detectives as a convicted sex offender. Rodriguez is back on the job and his detectives run their case for him. Ortiz leaves to testify at the Fraker trial. Langford comes in for questioning. He tells them about the father of one of his alleged victims who has been hassling him. He also tries to tell the detectives how he was setup and wrongfully convicted of his sex crime. Jones and Medavoy talk with one of Langford's brother's co-worker who had once gotten into the fight with the victim. The fact that the victim's brother was a convicted pedophile added to the reason for their fight, with that he asks for a lawyer. Ortiz testifies and on his cross-examination Sinclair implies that Rodriguez shot first. On redirect, Haywood makes it known the Rodriguez's gun was still holstered. Ortiz returns to the squad. After hearing where they are at with the day's case, Rodriguez talks with Ortiz about the trial and her old request for transfer. Having had some time to work through her issues with Clark, Ortiz cancels her request for transfer. McDowell and Ortiz talk with one of Langford's victim. He eventually gives them an alibi to check out, but in the process they get the impression that his encounter with Langford left a lasting impression. Dr. Devlin testifies about Fraker's condition when he was brought into the ER with his gunshot wound, but on cross, Sinclair only thinks to bring out her relationship with Clark (and subsequently the 15 Squad). Sipowicz and Clark interview the father of another of Langford's victims, but he gives them an alibi to check out. Sipowicz and Clark interview the son of the father that they had just interviewed. He tells them that Langford began contacting him a few months ago and his dad found out. The detectives also find out that Langford's brother had placed a call to his brother's PO thirty minutes before he was killed. They bring Langford back in and ask him to tell him other things that he might have neglected to tell them. They let him go for now, but Sipowicz has his doubts. They decide to check out the story that Langford goes to visit his grandmother once a week. With all that going on, McDowell and Sipowicz discuss their nuptials, which they will celebrate after the trial is completed and the microscope is off the Squad. Sipowicz and Clark go back at the father of Langford's victim, when part of his alibi doesn't check out and they find out that he recently had inquired about getting a gun. Medavoy and Jones meet with Langford's grandmother, whom they were told he visits once a week. Grandma lives across the street from park. In talking with one of the parents at the park the find out that Langford has been there posing as a groundskeeper named Malcolm. Back at the squad, Sipowicz and Clark give Langford a chance to be a man but it takes some persuasion Langford breaks down and confesses to the murder of his brother, who he thought was going to get him sent back to prison, based on his call to his PO. Sipowicz is on the stand and his testimony with Haywood goes real well, but when Sinclair starts his cross-examination he eventually starts to get to Sipowicz. Upon leaving the courthouse Sipowicz vents his feelings, but McDowell is there to support him, which brings a little smile to his face.moreless

"Swirly" is told he is free to go, but Sipowicz asks him is he is alright with going home to his mother. McDowell and Ortiz question one of the men who they know was involved in the argument.

This makes them interested in looking into the whereabouts of the victim's husband and Ortiz's husband. The detectives think that their fire bomber maybe an amateur, when the tape of a 911 call reveals a shaky voice and the type of fire bomb used is a basic Molotov cocktail. A nurse from the clinic, Jennifer Martin, comes to the squad hoping to help the detectives with their investigation.

      Clark, Ortiz and Russell are on the scene of a woman who's managed to survive an attack by the "Time Bar" killer. Lucy Wenner, the victim, tells them that two men were involved in her attack. She heard one of them mention that "Jimmy is gonna be pissed." The only James involved with the case that the detectives know is the "pain in the ass" owner of the Time Bar, James Carlin. They are going to talk with him, in the meantime Rodriguez reports back to the brass in his continuing effort to keep a task force from being formed. Jones and Medavoy arrive on the scene of the death of a mugger by an off duty cop named Trotter. They are told by Trotter that he was on the scene planning to meet one of his CI's named "Flossy" and that it was a "good shoot." They believe him, but need to ask all the questions. While awaiting the arrival of Carlin, Russell tells Sipowicz that her biopsy is in an hour. He tells her that she should talk with McDowell who wants to help. Sipowicz, Clark and Russell finally get to talk with Carlin, who tells them about his relationship with his business partner. Jones and Medavoy talk with "Flossy," Trotter's CI. He knew nothing about having any meeting with Trotter. Later in the squad room, John Irvin tells Jones and Medavoy that the area where their victim was killed is the location of an underground gay club. Russell confides her problem with McDowell and asks her to help her through the biopsy. Jones and Medavoy talk with Trotter about the gay aspect of the area where the shooting occurred. Trotter tells them that his CI picked the location for their meeting and lists a number of reasons why he might have lied about there being a meeting scheduled. Russell (with McDowell by her side) starts to ask her doctor a bunch of questions. Her doctor tells her that being over prepared for what is going on isn't necessarily a good thing right now. She needs to relax and let her perform the simple test that is needed right now. Sipowicz and Clark meet with Carlin's business partner who tells him that Carlin has been trying to dirty trick him out of the business. He also mentions that Carlin's driver/bodyguard has even tried to keep him out of a board meeting. Jones gets a call from Michael's foster mother; she tells him that Michael didn't show up for school today. "Flossy" shows up at the precinct, recanting his earlier statement that he didn't have an appointment with Trotter. They find out that "Flossy" talked with Trotter's partner, who convinced him to come back in. Sipowicz, Clark and Russell talk with Carlin's driver who claims to have never touched Carlin's partner. He tells them he knows nothing about the murders. The driver realizes the detectives are getting desperate, something the detectives later admits to. After he is gone, information comes in that the driver tried registering a gun under another name, which keeps them interested in him as a suspect, but first Rodriguez wants them to run Vaughn's picture in a photo lineup for this morning's victim, Lucy Wenner. Jones gets a call from Michael, who is at an arcade with his dad. Jones goes to the arcade and has a confrontation with Craig Woodruff, who likens Jones' character to that of TV's "Benson." Jones tries to advise Michael that hanging out with his father is only going to lead to trouble. Michael doesn't want anything to do with Jones, if he can't still see his father. Lucy Wenner is in the squad looking at a photo array. She isn't sure, since she didn't get a good look, but she does pick out the photo of Carlin's driver, Vaughn. While it's a shaky ID, they plan to bring Vaughn back in. Det. Givens comes in and tells Jones and Medavoy that his partner is gay and that he did tell "Flossy" to change his story. He's been covering for his partner, whose career on the job would be over if his sexual orientation got out. Vaughn is brought back in and does tell the detectives his whereabouts that morning and also that he isn't surprised by anything that Carlin has done. Jones goes to the pokey room and tries to have a "man to man" conversation with Michael's father. It ends with Jones telling Woodruff to stay out of his way, or he'll bury him. Sipowicz, Clark and Russell try talking with Carlin and his attorney. His attorney doesn't want Carlin to talk, but Carlin does when the detectives push his buttons. He doesn't offer them anything, but it is clear that both sides are frustrated by the progress of the investigation so far. Jones and Medavoy talk with Trotter about his private life, which they would like to help keep private, but too many things have screwed up their investigation. Hoping it will stay in the room, Trotter confesses that he was set to have an encounter with his shooting victim, when the victim try to mug him. Jones and Medavoy tell him they are going to have to run it by their boss. After conferring with Haywood, Rodriguez comes into the room with his detectives to tell Trotter that they'll be able to keep his secret. Rodriguez also tells him (as his recent personal experience has reminded him) that every minor mistake (private and professional) he has ever made may come back to haunt him. At the end of the tour, Sipowicz talks with Jones about his treatment of Michael's father. Sipowicz suggests that he work to clear the case of the murder of Michael's mother. If the dad stays around for too long, Sipowicz believes that his father will try to deal with the problem of his son knowing his guilt and hanging out with a cop is going to get the better of him. Later at the Sipowicz/McDowell home, Andy comments to Connie that it is nice that Michelle is getting old enough to go to sleep easier. Connie finally breaks the news to Andy that she is pregnant. He is initially confused given her previous medical history, but in the end is delighted.moreless

The reality of the job sets back in when a call comes in for another "Time Bar" homicide; McDowell citing the stomach flu stays behind while the other detectives leave for the scene. They meet up with Jones and Medavoy who are already on the scene. The crime scene is very familiar and the victim was a nurse at the hospital where Dr. Devlin works, Clark plans to follow up with her about the nurse. Sipowicz suggest that Russell should go and deal with what she needs to deal with; she tells him that she would prefer to keep working. Back at the squad, McDowell runs a theory past the others that the perpetrator might be an impersonator, since none of the crime scenes involved forced entry. One name comes up that might be worth looking into, Raymond Gerson. Dr. Devlin drops by the squad to answer Clark's message, she didn't know the victim. She apologizes again for her recent behavior and tells him that she is back on her medication. Sipowicz and Clark go to find Raymond Gerson and a neighbor informs them the man they want to talk to is a detective, who carries a gun. On their stakeout, waiting for the return of "Det." Gerson, Sipowicz tells Clark about McDowell's condition. Gerson returns and the detectives easily collar him for questioning. Gerson makes a lot of noise when entering the precinct and Rodriguez suggests to Sipowicz that he sit the interview out, since Rodriguez was just in the process of telling the Inspector that they are going by the book on this investigation. Gerson tries to tell Clark and Russell that he is a frustrated actor whose been faking he's a cop to entertain his sick nephew. McDowell goes to talk with Russell, who is still awaiting the results of her tests. They talk about that, the upcoming wedding and Russell tells McDowell that she knows she's pregnant. Clark and Russell go back at Gerson hard when his stories haven't checked out. Gerson doesn't give them anything and they can only sit and wait until Lucy Wenner comes in for a lineup to possibly ID him. Lucy Wenner looks at the lineup and doesn't recognize anyone. Gerson isn't their man. Lucy Wenner is beside herself when she realizes the detectives aren't making any headway.

She cites that she is getting back at Jimmy Carlin for once calling her a "no tit pig." Rodriguez is ready to celebrate the closing of the case with a trip to the local bar, but is reminded that another event is to he held that evening.

      The detectives start investigating a massage parlor rip-off. While their rip-off involves a homicide, there are similar rip-offs occurring in the Bronx. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. are going to work the case with detectives from the Bronx, including Clark Sr. This leaves the others to look into the case of an elderly woman being robbed in her home by exterminators. Mrs. Hornby sends her agent, Beacham, to ask Sipowicz to come back to her apartment and work security. The dollar figure for the job is raised and other perks are offered, but Sipowicz rejects them all. McDowell, Ortiz, Jones and Medavoy look into the exterminator case. Through the efforts of two Samaritans, one of the exterminators was captured and subdued at the scene. The other has gotten away, but is quickly grabbed up. While waiting to talk to the victim and one of the perps at the hospital, small talk leads to Ortiz telling McDowell that she and her husband are working on their marriage. In the meantime, back at the squad, Ortiz's husband stops by to check up on her, asking Rodriguez to keep an eye on her. Rodriguez denies the request. When the subdued exterminator dies as a result of his injuries, the detectives are forced to find out everything that went on at the scene to determine if charges need to be filed against the Samaritans. Haywood tells Jones that she thinks she is pregnant and he wonders when he will be involved in the decision process. The Bronx detectives arrive at the squad to compare cases and the tension begins mounting. A doctor who was known to be at the massage parlor won't talk, asks for his lawyer, and gives Sipowicz and Clark Jr. nothing for their interview. Clark Sr. says that the next interview is theirs. While staking out someone who used a stolen credit card from the massage parlor, Sipowicz tells Clark Jr. the story of his past history with Clark Sr. Essentially Sipowicz's methods and his drinking at the time rubbed the "by the book" Clark Sr. the wrong way. Also, Clark Sr.'s inability to lie when he should have allowed a mistrial to occur. An elderly woman died a month later as a result of that suspect being freed. The credit card user is subdued and Clark Sr. and his partner conduct the interview, "using honey instead of vinegar to attract the bees". Jones and Medavoy conduct another interview, but the interviewee seems much more interested in Jones. When other evidence points to the Samaritans beating the exterminator more than he needed to be, McDowell and Ortiz are charged with bringing the Samaritans in to inform them that they are facing man-slaughter charges. The man given up by the credit card user is taken into custody, but not until after hitting Clark Sr. and giving them all a workout. Clark Sr. and his partner bring the suspect back to the precinct, while Sipowicz and Clark Jr. get the doctor to give them the ID that they need. Clark Sr. starts to conduct an interview, but Clark Jr. and Sipowicz get the job done. Sipowicz tries to make it right between him and Clark Sr., trying to keep Clark Jr. out of it, telling him he shouldn't alienate his son. Clark Sr. tells him to go to hell. Valerie and Baldwin start to discuss some of their options as Sipowicz sells out for $400 a shift. He arrives back at his apartment and observes Connie's motherly interactions with Theo.moreless

At IAB, Clark Jr. is interviewed by Rodriguez's friend Capt. Fraker. He offers to help Clark Jr. out, by asking him for some information that might be used against someone like Sipowicz.

Back at the squad, Medavoy has information on a possible suspect; Jones has information on where the original bomb threat call from and a contact in vice who has voodoo contacts that might be able to tell them the origin of the white powder that is laced with egg shell and cayenne pepper. Sipowicz goes with McDowell to pick up Medavoy's suspect and Clark Jr. returns to the office with restricted duty.

The priest then has some fun with Medavoy who's just knocked over what might be a sacred candle.

Another suspect's name comes up with the name of Hale and he has an unknown relationship with a Hispanic woman named Fernandez, who because of her ethnic background may know something about the Santeria powder.

      John and the good doctor have renewed their intimate relationship, but something is wrong; her medication isn't letting her feel anything. She decides that for his benefit they need to end their relationship. The detectives are on the scene of a homicide that looks like a mob hit. The building superintendent (a poet) has a lot of detail for the detectives, including the license plate number of the vehicle driven by Russians. Following up, Sipowicz and Clark go to the address where the car was registered. They find a man, Ilya Antropov, knocking on a nearby door and determine that the door they were at was the door he was really intending on knocking on. They bring him in for questioning and decide to hold him in a cell until they can check out his story about being a busboy. McDowell is planning to go to the doctor for her first ultra-sound. Sipowicz and Clark go to talk the woman, a renowned photographer that their victim worked for. The photographer recently had taken photos of convicts and perhaps one of them may have done her a favor. She decides they need to talk to her attorney. Ilya Antropov story checks out and he can be let go. A man, Brad Cutshall, comes up into the squad room; he wants to file a report regarding constant break-ins to his car. McDowell gets ready to take his statement and he handcuffs himself to her. He tells everyone that he is wired with a bomb. The people who attached the bomb to him (and are holding his daughter) are demanding the release of Ilya Antropov. With the bomb up in the Squad room the precinct is full of activity in the lobby. Sipowicz and Clark go and talk with Antropov and he denies knowing anything about Cutshall. He does tell them that back in Russia he was once leader of a loyal group of rebels, but that group is now scattered and he doesn't know how to contact them. McDowell starts talking with Cutshall and manages to get him to give her is cell phone number. Cutshall's phone rings and they now have one hour to let Antropov go or the bomb will be detonated. Clark remembers that Antropov said something in Russian to an old man when they were leaving that building. They decide they need to bring that man in for questioning. Back at their original crime scene, Medavoy and Ortiz do some follow-up questioning and find out a tenant that had a dead cat nailed to her door. They talk with Katie Driscoll and find out that her father had been living with her for the last few weeks. They ask her to contact her dad. Meanwhile back at the squad, McDowell talks with Cutshall trying to gather further information. Sipowicz asks Rodriguez why they can't just let Antropov go, they were going to do it this morning anyway. Rodriguez tells him the brass doesn't want to negotiate. They find out that Cutshall has gambling debts. Perhaps he owes money to the Russians? Cutshall says no. The old man that Antropov talked to earlier that morning is brought in and he eventually tells the detectives that Antropov is someone he is more afraid of than the police. Sipowicz and Clark go back to Antropov's cell and Sipowicz tries to "convince" him to call off this bomb. Katie Driscoll brings her dad to the precinct where he doesn't recognize a photo of Antropov. They decide to keep pursuing every possible lead. A dumpster blows up outside the precinct. Sipowicz goes upstairs and McDowell insists that he go back downstairs. Cutshall gets another call on his cell phone that says that the next bomb is theirs. The FBI arrives, but they have nothing on Antropov. A background check of Katie Driscoll's father reveals that he has a record for crack possession. Clark goes to see Driscoll and gets him to confess the name of his Russian dealer, where he works out of and that he is in debt to the Russians for $50,000. The pieces begin to fall together; Antropov is really a big hitter that came to US under an assumed named. Sipowicz decides on a plan of action. He needs to get Cutshall's phone so that Antropov can make the call he needs to make. Sipowicz has brought Antropov's son to the cell. Sipowicz threatens that he will bring Antropov's son upstairs and cuff him to the bomb. Antropov calls the bomb off and after it has been removed from Cutshall everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Cutshall is reunited with his daughter and everyone can go home for the evening. At the Sipowicz home, Theo only concern for the day is that he needs to get a new baseball mitt and shoes. A short while later Connie breaks down when the impact of the day's events finally hit her.moreless

      Sipowicz arrives on the scene of a homicide where Shannon and Laughlin are both present. Sipowicz requests that Laughlin leave the scene and Laughlin informs him that he is documenting all of the mistreatment he has been getting. When Laughlin leaves Shannon indicates to Sipowicz that he might have some information that will help out Clark Jr., but he reluctant to come forward as he is worried for his job. Shannon testifies before IAB about what he saw Laughlin do with the package of heroin. While Fraker wants to wait to further investigation, Haywood insists that he void Clark Jr.'s arrest now. The other detectives are on the scene of a murder of a community activist, who worked with female gang bangers. Jones and Medavoy talk with the victim's downstairs neighbor who has nothing but contempt for what his neighborhood has become. Ortiz encounters a gang banger who tells them her or her friends got nothing for them. Ortiz gives the banger her card anyway, as McDowell comes over to tell her that Laughlin is going to be arrested. Back at the precinct, much to his surprise, Laughlin is arrested. Sipowicz arrives at the cells to tell Clark Jr. that Laughlin has been taken care of and he is free; fortunately for him this all happened before the arraignment that would have put him into the system. Clark Jr. returns to the squad for a full day of duty. The female gang banger that mouthed off to Ortiz comes to the squad to give Ortiz and McDowell some information on someone they should look at for killing the activist. The banger named Drida Lopez tells them about "Shakedown;" someone who later turns out to not have been available to commit the crime. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview a man who at one time stayed at the home of the victim in Sipowicz's case. That victim was an older gentleman who enjoyed the company of men. This man denies being gay and but tells them about Idalo, an inmate at Rikers who set him up. Jones and Medavoy interview the downstairs neighbor Bosham who other neighbors report didn't like his activist neighbor. When Bosham realizes they are thinking that he did it, he laughs at them. He tells them he was at his mother's home in Nyack. Downstairs, a drunken John Clark Sr. is making a scene in the lobby telling everyone present that his son wasn't with IAB, he was. Clark Jr. comes downstairs and takes his father out the front door. Clark Jr. returns upstairs apologizing for his dad's behavior, then he leaves with Sipowicz to go to visit Idalo at Rikers. Jones and Medavoy interview Levar a man whose fingerprint was found in the activist's apartment. His alibi is that he was with his girl, Drida Lopez. At Rikers Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview Idalo who tells them his relationship with their victim. He admits to having set departing inmates up with their victim. Sipowicz offers to help Idalo with a transfer to Sing Sing (which is closer to the city than his eventual destination Attica) for his cooperation. He declines the offer, saying the victim was good to him and he would just like help out in return, so he gives them the name of someone he says made contact with the victim without him being aware of it. McDowell and Ortiz reinterview Drida Lopez who says she just wants to stick up for her man, but she breaks down and tells them that her man wasn't with her last night. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. find the man that Idalo pointed them towards, but that man tells them he doesn't know anything and that he had a run in with Idalo when he was recently at Rikers. Jones and Medavoy go back at Levar who eventually gives up his guilt to them, but he asks if he can get a deferred prosecution. He tells them he got the key to the victim's apartment from her neighbor, who the detectives realize is Bosham. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back to Rikers to talk again with Idalo, who they know has played them. They know that their victim dropped the funding for Idalo's lawyer the night before his final hearing. They theorize one of the boys he sent to their victim didn't put out and that is why the funding was cut. They again offer him the Sing Sing deal, but he is happy with his pending transfer to Attica. Word comes into the squad about someone picked up for driving a car owned by the victim in Sipowicz and Clark Jr.'s case. McDowell asks Sipowicz if he wants to cook tonight, but he suggests takeout, to she retorts that they've had takeout four nights in a row (trouble in the Sipowicz/McDowell household?). Jones and Medavoy go back at Bosham and lead him into believe that Levar has implicated him in a murder plan. He confesses to them that he did make a key available to Levar, what Levar did with the key was up to him. He hopes he can just write up his side of the story and go home. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview the man caught with the victim's car. They know that he was recently let out of Rikers and probably knows Idalo, they tell him they will offer him a deal or Idalo a deal, whoever talks first. Idalo loses the deal, as the ex-con tells them all they know. Jones and Medavoy come back into the interview room and arrest Bosham on conspiracy to commit murder. At the end of the tour, outside the precinct Clark Jr. stops by to thank Shannon for his help in the day's events. Sipowicz goes back to Rikers to give Idalo the good news about his being given up by the ex-con that was doing to him a favor. Sipowicz tells him a story about favors, which ends with Idalo being transferred to a prison one half hour from the Canadian border (where no one will come to visit him). John's father stops by to talk with his son about the recent events. John tells his father that he hasn't been making good decisions lately. The drinking has got to stop and he would appreciate it if his father would stop looking out for him.moreless

They decide to start with the loan shark Stan had recently made some frequent calls to. Sipowicz consults his magic 8 ball about an unspoken question (Perhaps it was will this day work out for the best?), but his facial features give no clear indication as to what answer he's received.

The detectives run their case by Haywood, but they don't really have enough to charge Stan with murder. Sipowicz suggests that before they let Stan go, they remind him that with the $60,000 he still owes other loan sharks, he is probably about to written off. Clark lets Stan out of the pokey, and then reminds him that he needs to watch his back out on the street. Clark tries to make a Stan a deal, which Stan refuses. At family court, Sipowicz is on the stand and is not performing well under the questioning of Colohan's attorney.

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.

      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

      A jogger who was gunned down in a park manages to contact his wife via his cell phone before he passes. His wife (now at the scene) tells Ortiz about her husband's partner and their business dealings and a British tourist with a camera makes the start of the investigation interesting for Sipowicz and Clark. Meanwhile at another crime scene, Jones and Medavoy are investigating a body found in the trunk of a stolen car. The DOA is the owner of the comedy club. It's Rodriguez's last day and John Irvin passes around a card for everyone to sign for the going away party that will be held later that evening. Sipowicz and Clark interview the dead jogger's business partner. He tells them about the affair his partner was having with another man's wife and gives them her name, Janet. At the "Laff Pit" Jones and Medavoy interview the comedy club owner's wife, Lois Rubicoff. She tells them about some minor problems that her husband was having with some of the talent. Boxes for Rodriguez's replacement arrive, only they still don't know who the owner is. Jones finds that one of the comedians Lonnie Cutler has a story that differs from that of the club owner's wife, something they'll want to check out. Medavoy wants to see him, just because he's "the funniest comic he's ever seen." The woman that the jogger was having arrives at the Squad, it turns out that she is a uniformed officer. Sipowicz tells Janet Grafton what's going on with the death of the jogger, a man she was having an affair with. She tells them about the strange relationship she has with her jealous husband, who is another officer from the 25th precinct. They press her and but decide that they need to talk with her husband and she's worried about his reaction when he finds out about her affair. Medavoy and Jones interview Lonnie Cutler, whom they know had more than a small beef with the club owner. The only thing he gives them is a couple of jokes and an alibi to be checked out. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Off. Scott Grafton who gives them a little trouble when he realizes are probing him for information. Back at the squad, more boxes arrive as the detectives run their cases by Rodriguez. Then the owner of the boxes arrives; it's Eddie Gibson, who is now a sergeant and their new commanding officer. Sipowicz is convinced that today is April 1st. Scott Grafton's alibi doesn't check out, Sipowicz and Clark want to give him a chance to explain himself before they have to bring the case to IAB. Medavoy and Jones reinterview the club owner's wife after they discover she was responsible for purchasing the materials used to dispose of her husband's body. She tells them that Lonnie Cutler killed him after he flipped when her husband had fired him. She tells them about Cutler's bloody shirt and that he forced her to help him dispose of the body. Sipowicz and Clark talk again with Scott Grafton, who now knows what's going on and he tells them he was following his wife this morning. He further adds that he's glad that the guy who was having an affair with his wife is dead. Outside of the interview room Clark suggests to Sipowicz that Grafton "is a risk" and that perhaps the "Early Intervention" group should be called before Grafton totally loses it over his rocky marriage. Clark feels it needs to be done and it's the kind of help that he should have gotten for his father. A woman comes into the squad with her son. Her says her son found a gun in the park early this morning and the boy tells them about a man he saw throw something in the bushes. When pressed by the detectives and his mother, the boy tells them he can probably identify the man he saw if he sees him again. Lonnie Cutler is brought back and it turns into a "he said, she said" as they are pointing fingers at each other. However he plays an audiotape for the detectives from his answering machine, which incriminates Lois Rubicoff in the death of her husband. Scott Grafton is in the lobby of the precinct wanting to see the detectives who called "Early Intervention" on his behalf. Clark admits that he made the call and given Grafton's current state of mind he is glad he did. Upstairs the boy is looking at the array, but the story he is now telling isn't the same that he told Sipowicz and Clark earlier. They take him aside and get the real story from him. He was robbed by bullies a couple of weeks ago, he got a gun and every morning was waiting in the park to use it to try scaring the bullies. Tired of waiting for their return, the boy tried firing the gun at a tree and accidentally hit the jogger. They tell this to the boy's mother, who now needs to make arrangements to get her son a lawyer. With the day's activities seemingly at a close the Squad gets together--to toast Tony Rodriguez and wish him well on his new opportunity. At the gathering Clark gets a call that Janet Grafton has shot her husband. He goes to the hospital and finds out about their fight, where she feels that he would have killed her if he'd have had the chance.moreless
    • Bale Out
      Season 12 - Episode 11
      12/14/04
      7.8
      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 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

      7.8
      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.

      A tourist is raped in her hotel room on the 4th floor and the detectives begin their investigation in a hotel filled with swingers. The following morning Jones and Medavoy catch a homicide in that same hotel on the 8th floor. Are the crimes related? The head of security at the hotel is a retired cop that Sipowicz knows. Danny tells Andy about the relationship that Andy already suspected. Danny wants to make sure that Andy doesn't have a problem with it and later Diane asks him the same thing (although she doesn't seem as sure as Danny). Andy just wants to know if everyone's happy. The last number dialed by the homicide victim was to Stella Kensington; she's a prostitute who also happens to be a little person. It turns out the victim was a pimp who was able to furnish talent for unusual needs. And some of that talent leads the detectives to a witness of the homicide. Meanwhile, the hotel's lawyer offers the rape victim a $500,000 settlement. The rape victim's brother gets it raised to $700,000 and gets it identified such that 90% of the settlement won't be taxed. Given that the rape victim had sex earlier that afternoon with an old friend from high school, is it possible this rape is actually felony fraud? It was. Later, Diane and Danny have a talk. Diane is having a hard time adjusting to having a relationship again, so they call their relationship off, at least for the moment.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

      Andy bangs on the neighbor's door at 5:00 AM; the neighbor is practicing his bassoon for a big concert later that evening. He returns to bed, only to receive a call to a crime scene. He arrives with Clark at the scene of a retired cop, Roy Shaughnessy, and his wife who were beaten and robbed in their home. Sipowicz worked with the cop at the 20th precinct. Shaughnessy has been taken to the hospital; his wife tells the detectives what happened. While leaving Clark makes an off-hand comment about "old-timers," or rather as he corrects himself when Sipowicz appears annoyed "all-timers." The neighbor comes across the hall and gives Connie complementary tickets for her and her husband to his recital. Medavoy and Jones are on the scene of arson, where Barry Tytel, the author of a book "Only Schmucks Pay Income Tax," has found that his vehicle has been torched. Medavoy is more interested in the content of the Tytel's book rather than the arson. Michael's foster father comes to talk to Jones about the fact that he has removed Michael from his family's care. He tells Jones that Michael's father has been by their house and it has made his wife nervous, so they felt it better to see if Michael could find a different situation. Sipowicz and Clark run their case by Rodriguez who seems "a little raggy" as Clark puts it. McDowell tells Sipowicz about the tickets for the chamber music event and he is somewhat less than enthusiastic at the idea of attending such an event. Shaughnessy comes into the squad and tells them about what was stolen, including a letter from Patton. As they were at the academy together Shaughnessy's talks about being older makes Sipowicz feel a little uncomfortable. Jones and Medavoy interview the ex-wife of their arson victim. She tells them about the many people that he has burned because of the contents of his book have backfired for them. Besides, if she was going to set fire to his car, she would have made sure he was in it. Sipowicz and Clark talk to a fence about collectibles, and he agrees, after they've applied a little pressure, to put word out on the street about the Patton letter. Jones and Medavoy go back to talk with Tytel, but Medavoy only inquires further about the tax advantages found in his book. Jones wants the victim to think further about who might have wanted to torch his car; Medavoy gives him the correct spelling of his name so that Tytel can create the necessary paperwork to help him to stop paying taxes. The fence has come into the squad with the Patton letter and he tells him that he got it from J.J. via a middleman. They want more info about "J.J.," which the fence can't give them and they decide to lock him up and give him to the DA for some added incentive to help them out. Ortiz drops off some case folder for Rodriguez, and he dumps some information on her about his not making the captain's list, which he believes is payback for the recent trial. He mentions that Det. Eddie Gibson was promoted to Sergeant and he thinks that his career is stopping at the lieutenant rank. She encourages him to wait it out another year. Jones finds Craig Woodruff, who accuses him of trying to turn his son into a "white boy" like himself. Jones is ready to beat him, but holds back, realizing that is probably what Woodruff would want. Jones and Medavoy respond to Tytel's office, where they find a poisonous snake is being removed from the premises. Tytel knows that his wife knows about his aversion to snakes. Tytel encourages Medavoy to let him prepared a revised tax-form for him. Medavoy wants to look at the ex-wife again and Jones gets information that a pet store van was illegally parked in the area near where Tytel's vehicle was burned. Shaughnessy is in to find out about the progress of his case and tells the detectives that he has never heard of the J.J. whose prints were found on the Patton letter. They tell him that they will keep him informed, something Shaughnessy comments that he's said many times on the job. Jones and Medavoy go to the pet store; Jones mentions to Medavoy that that Michael's aunt is going to be his guardian going forward. The pet store clerk, Ralph Bassett, admits to having driven the van that morning tells the detectives that because it is illegal, their store has not been in the possession of any poisonous snakes. Jones and Medavoy decide to bring him in for further questioning. Sipowicz and Clark go to J.J.'s apartment only to find out that J.J. was removed from his apartment by another older cop, who they believe is Shaughnessy. Sipowicz and Clark go to Shaughnessy's apartment and find out from the wife that J.J. did some work for them. Clark gets a call about Nicky, a friend of J.J.'s and someone he once took a collar with. They go to Nicky's apartment building and they find J.J. handcuffed outside and some commotion coming from the roof. They find Shaughnessy on the roof being beaten by Nicky, who was able to get the upper hand on Shaughnessy. They take Nicky into custody and bring Shaughnessy with along them, that is after the retired detective catches his breath. Jones and Medavoy interview Bassett, who says he was in the neighborhood of the arson for other reasons, in this case a girl. When they ask for confirming information and lay out to him what they already know and some of the circumstances of today's events Bassett confesses. He tells him about how is father is federal prison for tax evasion, due to his use of Tytel's book. Clark talks with J.J. about his relationship with Nicky. Clark tries to bluff him into a confession; meanwhile Sipowicz is talking with Nicky and trying to bluff him. Nicky caves in first and confesses to the crime. Tytel is told about Bassett's confession and Jones tells Tytel he is going to talk to the US Attorney about Tytel's book and its impact. Medavoy rejects Tytel's newly prepared tax form. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Shaughnessy about the case and retired life until Shaughnessy's wife comes to collect him. Jones talks with Michael about his aunt, his father and that fact that he won't be backing down his promise to Michael. Jones turns Michael over to his aunt, who is also worried about any possibility of visits from Michael's father. It was likely something that Shaughnessy said about retired life that causes Andy to change his mind about attending the chamber recital as he and Connie attend the event.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

Hatcher says he was chasing a black male suspect and was looking for him over a fence when a light came on behind him. He turned around and was shot by a guy in the window with a gun. Hatcher returned fire and struck the shooter. Sipowicz and Clark go up to interview the man that Hatcher shot and wounded.

Sipowicz and Clark tell Gibson what they know about the morning's shooting. Gibson wants to know if they are standing by their fellow detective. Sipowicz responds that they are doing their job and investigating the shooting. Gibson wants to know what he's supposed to tell Hatcher's uncle (Chief of Personnel) the next time he calls. Jones and Medavoy begin to investigate the death of an elderly man at a seedy hotel. Jones finds a hole in the wall that came from the room next door. The man who is said to occupy that room, Ryan Dooling is nowhere to be found and it looks like he's left the room for good. At the hospital Sipowicz and Clark talk again with Hatcher's shooting victim and his story still isn't adding up with Hatcher's version. The detectives run their cases for Gibson as Hatcher returns to the squad. Sipowicz and Clark want to talk to him again, and Hatcher wants to talk to them. Without them having a chance to ask for it, Hatcher gives them information that fills in the holes in his story, but he still claims that the man didn't fire a warning shot. Ortiz has some information that Hatcher's shooting victim may have just been itching to use his gun and ballistics information shows that he used an unregistered gun in the shooting. Jones and Medavoy talk with the older brother of Ryan Dooling. He tells them about his brother's involvement in the club scene and his acquaintance a guy named Chase Allsworth. Sipowicz and Clark talk again with the shooting victim about the gun he used in the shooting to defend himself. Back at the squad, Sipowicz has found out that Hatcher has made several phone calls to Janet Grafton's cell phone. He asks Clark if he can talk with her to get a feeling for what Hatcher might be all about. Jones and Medavoy try talking to Chase Allsworth, but he is extremely tired, he's been up for a couple of days. He keeps nearly passing out; but he manages to tell the pair about Eva Warm, a DJ that Dooling had "signed" to his record label. Clark has a talk with Grafton and she tells him that Hatcher knew her ex-husband and their old cell phone was still in her name, which is why her name came up. She knows that Hatcher had an ex-girlfriend that lived in the area of that apartment building and he is "a complete asshole." Sipowicz and Clark go to see Lucy Timmons, who confirms that she had dated Hatcher (they broke up months ago) and she saw him outside her building this morning. She tells the detectives that she knows Hatcher has been outside her building uninvited. Jones and Medavoy talk with Eva Warm, who admits to having been with Ryan Dooling last night, but she doesn't know where he is today. She tells them about another bar that Dooling had been known to hang out at. Sipowicz and Clark confront Hatcher with what they know about his ex-girlfriend and that probably being the reason for him being outside her building that morning. Hatcher sticks with his perp chasing story. Hatcher leaves the room. Clark has some misgivings about their approach on this case; he doesn't think they have enough to keep pursuing this. Jones reports that Ryan Dooling has been found and is being brought in. Sipowicz and Clark tell Ortiz that the Hatcher incident is going to go down as a "good shoot." Hatcher wants to talk to Sipowicz; he wants to know what Sipowicz has against him. Sipowicz suggests that Hatcher begin looking for another assignment, he doesn't want Hatcher bringing the squad down, but Hatcher believes it's time for Sipowicz to have a change of venue. Jones and Medavoy ask Ryan Dooling about the bullet hole, but he claims he doesn't know anything about the bullet hole. However, after he hears about the death next door (his neighbor was the only person who actually seemed to care about him) he tells them that Eva Warm had the gun that fire the deadly shot. Haywood hears about the evidence they have against Hatcher's shooting victim and she expects he will get some time for his possession and use of the unregistered weapon. Eva Warm tells Jones and Medavoy about her meeting last night with Ryan Dooling and how stupid she was for falling for his bullshit. She confesses to the accidental shooting of the gun. Then they tell her about the consequence of the gun's firing. Hatcher invites Clark to a monthly poker game, but he declines. Ortiz asks Clark if there is anything she needs to know about her partner. He tells her just to keep an eye on him. Outside the precinct Sipowicz places a call to Clark and has him come down to meet him. He tells him that he is going to be meeting with Hatcher's ex-partner, Carl Garrity, from around the time of the death of Hatcher's wife. Sipowicz has looked at the case file and it seems wrong, since no one was ever collared for it. Sipowicz wants to know if Clark will join him in this meeting. Clark seems reluctant, but decides to go along. Garrity tells them about Hatcher's wife having an affair (with him) that she told Hatcher about. Three days later she was dead. It may have been a coincidence, but Sipowicz is convinced that Hatcher killed his wife.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

Craig tells him it is a family matter and his son isn't going to give him anything. Sipowicz tells him that he will put this case together, but for now, with nothing to charge Woodruff with, he is released. At the end of the tour, Rodriguez thanks his detectives for their support.

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.

      John is surprised by an early morning visit from Jennifer. Sometime later that morning he and the other detectives are on the scene of a homicide when Russell joins them on the scene. The homicide they caught matches a case she had three weeks earlier. When a piece of evidence is found that helps to link their cases, she decides to stay and participate in their investigation. Jones meets with Michael Woodruff and Michael tells him that he has told his father about their get togethers, but he hasn't told him where he is currently living. Back at the squad Russell runs down her case, which matches their homicide almost exactly. The detectives talk with a bartender and the owner of the bar where the victim was last seen. Word had begun leaking out about the similarity of the cases; the press and 1PP are taking an interest, increasing the pressure for the squad to close the case. Russell leaves to take an important call. Jones and Medavoy respond to the scene of a possible arson, the officer on the scene tells him that a homeless witness told him about seeing a young blond haired boy. The homeless witness is now on the way to the hospital to be treated for his burns. The owner of a bodega across the street comes over to tell the detectives that he has video of a kid that he had sold a lighter to 30 minutes before he heard the fire trucks. Sipowicz, Clark and Russell talk with man who was dating the victim. He tells them that he went by her apartment that night; only he confesses that he wasn't able to actually see her. Evidentially that wasn't enough to make him suspicious. Russell has to leave the investigation for about an hour for an appointment. McDowell and Ortiz talk with the woman that their victim went to the "Time Bar" with. She tells them what the victim had told her about a man she had sex with on the night she died, one key detail the victim mentioned was that the man she was with had a tiny penis. Jones and Medavoy talk with boy (and his parents) that was caught on the bodega video. The boy denies any knowledge of the fire and his mother vouches for his whereabouts at the time of the fire. McDowell and Ortiz talk with one of the waitresses from the club, but the information she offers them doesn't look like it will amount to much. Russell's appointment is with a doctor, who has confirmed her suspicion about the lump in her breast. Now they have to begin the test to see how invasive it may be. Jones and Medavoy talk to the homeless survivor of the fire. He tells them that he actually saw two kids on the scene. The detectives check into the waitresses' information, one item might lead to something, the liquor reps name matches a name the victim told to her girlfriend. Russell returns to the squad and Rodriguez lays down for her the rules about working in his squad. After Russell goes off on the boss, Sipowicz tries to talk with her, but she doesn't open up her problem. He wants her to get with it, or get off of the case. Jones and Medavoy go back to talk with the kid and play him such that they get the name of the other kid that was seen with him. Sipowicz, Clark and Russell talk with the liquor rep, who admits to having gone home with the victim and having sex with her. When Russell (who's got a lot on her mind at the moment) steps over the line--it brings their questioning to a halt when he "lawyers up." Jones and Medavoy talk with the other boy and he tells them that his friend's mother is crazy, that it was she who put them up to lying about their involvement with the fire and she destroyed the videotape they took of the fire in their fireplace. Jones and Medavoy got back the home to encounter the mother. Medavoy finds evidence of the videotape in the fire. When they go to arrest the mother for obstruction and the son for arson the mother gets very verbally and physically abusive on her son. Back at the squad, they report to Rodriguez that the mother and her son are awaiting the arrival of their attorney. Meanwhile the other detectives are still waiting for a break in their case; perhaps when the story hits the papers in the morning something will turn up. The squad plans on staking out the "Time Bar" that evening. Jones realizes that he has missed his appointment with Michael. He finds Michael at the basketball court and to get him to go to dinner with him, he must hit a three. Jones does, but as they are leaving Michael's father arrives. He tells Jones that he is not going to let his son "get turned into you." John and Jennifer rendezvous again that evening, but this time she wants to spice up their relationship by videotaping their lovemaking. He refuses but all she was looking for was something they could do different that he might not have done with any previous relationship. She leaves disappointed. At the "Time Club," Sipowicz and Clark observe Russell's arrival, which seems unusually animated. A little concerned, Sipowicz goes up to her and finds out that she has been drinking. She confesses to having one. Sipowicz leaves her after he's been "brushed off" for effect. When another man approaches her, he gets a glass of water in the face and Sipowicz intercedes and a small fight breaks out. Afterwards Diane tells Andy about her doctor's visit, not wanting any sympathy and wanting to keep her job (the only thing she's got right now) she doesn't want him to tell anyone, not even Connie. He offers to support her, the best that he can, throughout this crisis. Andy makes it home, battered and bruised from the fight. He tries to hide the fact that he knows more about Diane than he is letting on, but Connie doesn't believe it; she knows when she is being lied to.moreless

      Gibson stops by to say his goodbyes as he goes out on medical leave to fight his cancer. He offers Sipowicz the opportunity to take a security job for a rich widow two nights a week. Det. Ortiz reports for duty and joins the other detectives on a dump job homicide. Ortiz and McDowell show a picture of the victim to a man who reported his nephew missing. He IDs his nephew, Oscar Molina, but tells them that INS had reportedly picked his nephew up two days earlier. His calls to the INS didn't get results, that why he reported him missing. Jones and Medavoy respond to Ray Maxwell's report of stolen puppies, purebred English bulldogs. Medavoy sees a future business opportunity in dog breeding when he finds out the puppies are worth $3000 a piece. An area pet store owner, Lois Dunbar, is considered as a suspect, when one of the Maxwell's articles cost her some business. INS arrives at the precinct and mentions a couple of their agents that they've had complaints on. The agents are brought in and cite being elsewhere, although they can't easily prove it. Lois Dunbar is questioned about the missing puppies and Medavoy wants to know about the breeding business. A pet store calls in with a report that someone is looking to offload some bulldog puppies. At lunch Sipowicz goes to meet the widow and gets approval from her to show up at 6:00 pm that evening for the security job Gibson put him onto. The INS agents' story seems to be checking out. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go to interview a security guard, whose fingerprints were found on the victim's car, who may know something. When they arrive, the guard attempts to run away. Medavoy and Jones are on surveillance at the pet store and Medavoy keeps pursing the dog breeding business. The security guard thought that Sipowicz and Clark Jr. were INS, which was why he ran. When asked about the victim, he tells them that the victim was child molester. The guy with the puppies tells the detectives about the horror of having the puppies (even if only for a few hours, causing Medavoy to rethink his plan) and the name of the man who put him onto the puppies, Ray Maxwell's partner, Carter Lynch. Ortiz and McDowell interview the victim's aunt and she confesses that the Oscar Molina was flirting with her. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back at the security guard with that information and get an admission that the Molina's uncle hired him to get rid of his nephew. Carter Lynch confesses and Ray Maxwell offers an amiable settlement where charges won't be pressed. John Irvin is allowed to deliver the news to Ray and winds up with a date. With Andy's agreement, John arranges for Connie to watch Theo while he goes to see "The Producers" in Nathan Lane's seats. Oscar Molina's uncle lawyers up but the case is resolved. Sipowicz reports for duty and finds out what Gibson was really up to, playing nursemaid and companion to that rich widow. For him it is a short-lived job. When he returns home, Connie tells Andy she would be glad to baby-sit for Theo anytime.moreless

Jones and Medavoy look into a robbery where the store owner claims to have shot at a Latino man. Three blocks away, McDowell and Ortiz are on the scene, where a Latino man has been shot. This man claims to have been shot while being robbed just down the street. Back at the squad McDowell finds out that her sister, Michelle, has called her twice. She calls her back and finds out that she been in town for the last three months. She meets with Michelle, who she sees is six months pregnant and has been beaten up. Michelle doesn't want Connie to have her husband arrested or brought in for any kind of talking to; since she doesn't believe it would make anything better. McDowell gives her the key to her apartment and tells her to go and see a doctor. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz find and interview woman named Chloe who was involved in a domestic dispute their victim one month earlier. She denies any knowledge of what happened to their victim, but she can't readily account for her time, so she offers them the location of Antwan Butler, someone who she says their victim burned on a coke deal. Back at the squad, McDowell comes back and tells her fellow detectives about her sister's situation. Sipowicz wants to do something to help, but Rodriguez wants him to take care of grabbing their suspect first. McDowell and Ortiz go to the scene where another Latino body was found, this corpse looks to be the man shot in Jones and Medavoy's robbery case. They go back to the hospital to see if they can talk with their original shooting victim. He is still in surgery, with a bullet lodged near his spine. They talk with the victim's brother, who tells them that their victim knew the woman whose apartment he showed up at when he was shot, at the scene the woman and the shooting victim didn't acknowledge knowing each other. Meanwhile the other detectives and a couple of uniforms go to grab their suspect. He flees out the window and fires one shot injuring a uniformed officer.

Sipowicz and Clark Jr. leave to pick up someone who was caught trying to sell some of the Palm Pilots taken from their victim's apartment. McDowell's brother-in-law Frank is brought in for questioning, since Sipowicz (her first choice) isn't available, Jones and Medavoy agree to have a talk with him. They tell Frank that he needs to leave his wife alone and go back to where he came from. Frank claims to hear the wake up call, but McDowell isn't convinced that her colleagues' warning was enough; what she really wanted Sipowicz in there to scare the crap out of Frank. Her dissatisfaction with Jones and Medavoy's performance in the interview room causes a little tension in the squad. McDowell herself is stressed over the whole situation with her sister. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. begin their interview of the guy who selling the Palm Pilots; he mentions that Chloe was on the scene with him and also admits to shooting their victim in the groin, but has no knowledge of a second shot. McDowell and Ortiz start to reinterview the woman who claimed not to know their shooting victim, when McDowell, who is still on the edge with everything else going on, scares the woman into telling them what she knows about their victim's shooting. The shooting victim, an old college boyfriend, is the actual father of the child she is raising with her husband. She was letting him sneak for visits with the child. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. reinterview Chloe who corroborates the Palm Pilot guy's story, so they still don't know where the shot to the head came from.

      Clark comes into the squad and tells Sipowicz he's been trying to find Jennifer Devlin, who walked out of the psych facility last night. Sipowicz tells him about a man who is coming in for an interview, one of Cindy Clifton's teachers, who wrote an unusual note "special, special pal" in her yearbook. The teacher, David Lewis tells them that he did have a support group relationship with Cindy Clifton, which was nothing like the relationship Cindy told him that she had with her half-brother Sam Jeffers. The detectives let him go, but having found him a little strange, Sipowicz gets Lewis' used piece of gum and sends it off for a DNA test. The detectives try to run down information on David Lewis, but they can't seem to find anybody that will say anything bad about him. Jones is leaving for court as today is the day when Michael is supposed to testify against his father. Brockhurst comes in with information on the sex-offenders that lived around Cindy Clifton, but it is Medavoy who comes up with the name of a parent who might have something to say about David Lewis. Brockhurst tells them that he will be hanging around the station house if anything comes up. Ortiz and Ronson go to the scene where a man, tourist Ned Applebaum has been mugged and lost his wife's $35,000 necklace; the only description of the mugger he can offer in this daylight mugging is an Italian guy in gold chains and a jogging suit. Michael testifies in his father's trial. On cross examination his father's attorney brings up an item from Michael's past where he had once lied to the police to try to reduce Michael's credibility. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the parent who had a complaint against David Lewis. He tells them about his daughter's close encounter with David Lewis. He believes they are looking at the right guy, but he wants to keep his daughter out of any subsequent prosecution. Jessica Applebaum comes in with a picture of her necklace and talks to the detectives. She tells them about the reason for their trip, to reconnect with each other; she tells them that she didn't even bring her necklace with her. David Lewis comes back in and (with Brockhurst watching) Sipowicz and Clark ask him about his relationship with past students. Then they tell him about the DNA evidence that proves he had sex with Cindy Clifton. Sipowicz, Clark and Gibson talk with Haywood about what they have on Lewis and she tells them the statue of limitations on the sexual assault makes him untouchable for that crime. As for charging him with her murder, they are going to need an air tight case before the DA's office will pursue a prosecution. Sipowicz goes to let Lewis out of the cage, but warns him that he is done teaching and that he better remain available. Lewis gets smug with Sipowicz since he knows they can touch him on the sexual assault charge, which only begins to anger Sipowicz. Clark gets a call from Dr. Devlin. He goes to her apartment to find that she is attempting to OD on pills. He calls for an ambulance and tries to keep her conscious until it arrives. At the hospital Clark finds out the status of Devlin, he is worried that she is going to be just like his dad "another train wreck he can't stop." Sipowicz gets a call from Gibson that Lewis's DNA was confirmed to be on Cindy Clifton's body. Sipowicz plans to talk to Cindy's father to see if he remembers David Lewis. Ortiz and Ronson talk again with Ned Applebaum about his story; they are trying to see is he is trying to commit insurance fraud. He then tells them about the lady friend, from the Internet, he was going to meet in "Little Italy." He was going to loan her the necklace so that she could use it as collateral for a loan for her sick child. The detectives get the PO Box number where Applebaum had sent previous gifts to his lady friend. Gerald Clifton comes in and hears what the detectives have to say. He doesn't recall a David Lewis, and he reiterates that he doesn't want to bring up any of this again with his wife. It is time for his family to get on with their lives. Ortiz and Ronson go to the apartment of the owner of the PO Box. He is a day trader who they discover took advantage of "hayseed" Applebaum, when they find gold chains and running suit he wore when he took the necklace. Jones returns from Michael's day in court. Gibson tells Sipowicz and Clark that David Lewis was found DOA in his apartment. They go to the scene and try to determine whether the death was a suicide or not. Ortiz and Ronson give Jessica Applebaum her necklace back and then since he genuinely seemed to be just someone who did something stupid and then suggest that she give her husband a second chance by at least talking to him, which she does. Sipowicz tries to decide how to proceed with the investigation of Lewis's death; both he and Clark believe that Brockhurst might be involved. Since everyone seems to have closure (except Sipowicz), should they let Lewis' death remain a suicide? Clark gets a call about Devlin and goes to the hospital. The doctor tells her she needs to remain restrained for now, but he is allowed to see her as long as he doesn't loosen her restraints. Clark pleads with her to begin taking care of herself. She tries to manipulate him into loosening her bonds, but he stands firm and stays by her side. Sipowicz goes to the watering hole where he expects to find Brockhurst. He tells him about David Lewis death. In reminding Brockhurst about an old story he tries to get Brockhurst to tell him what he knows about the death of David Lewis. Brockhurst doesn't admit to anything, but tells Sipowicz he is going to be able to sleep tonight now that the case is closed and that Sipowicz should do what he needs to do. Sipowicz goes to a church to find some direction.moreless

      The detectives are on the scene of what appears to be a gang killing. A new detective arrives at the scene; his name is Stan Hatcher, whose previous accomplishments include saving kids on a school bus. With his contacts he tells the others that he's heard someone made inappropriate comments to a leader of the Latin Kings. Sipowicz tells him to run with what he knows. The detectives return to the squad to find that Gibson has brought his obnoxious African Gray parrot. Hatcher tells the detectives what he's heard about the Latin Kings and leaves with Ortiz to find the leader. A man comes into the squad to report the "kidnapping" of his 15-year-old daughter. He tells them about an older boy that his daughter has been seeing. His attempts to get in touch with the boy (or his parents) Medavoy and Jones agree to look into what they define as more of a "runaway situation." Ortiz and Hatcher find "King Jazz" (Wilmer Lopez) leader of the Latin Kings. Hatcher seems to know the way to communicate to Lopez and Lopez tells him that any business they had with their victim's organization was already taken care of. Medavoy and Jones go the apartment where Charles Slocum lives (his parents are out of state). He tells them that he hasn't seen his girlfriend in two days. They search his home and turn up nothing. McDowell keeps trying to find information about Hatcher, with little success. John Irvin is bit by the parrot. Ortiz and Hatcher return and report on their talk with Lopez. Before their arrival a tip from a neighbor of the victim came in saying that the building superintendent (Lonnie Parker, a man with a criminal past) was seen leaving the scene after the shots were fired; Parker's son Calvin comes in to give the Sipowicz and Clark some background on his 65-year-old father. Jones and Medavoy talk to one of Carla's classmates, and she eventually tells the detectives that she knew Carla was pregnant and was planning on keeping the baby, although she wasn't sure that Charles Slocum was going to agree with the idea. Hatcher tells the detectives that in his old squad they used to do a "double-up" interview," where another set of detectives would conduct an interview of someone to see if they can get additional information. Sipowicz reluctantly allows him to talk with the super's son, but goes to observe the interview. Hatcher doesn't appear to gain any new insights, but he does lay out some known details about Latin Kings in the case to Calvin Parker. Calvin only reiterates that he doesn't want anything to do with his father. Medavoy and Jones reinterview Charles Slocum and when they begin to apply the pressure to him Charles tells them about a pact he had with Carla. With her being pregnant they both knew her father wouldn't approve of them being together, and they agreed to commit suicide together. When the time came for him to pull the trigger, he couldn't do it. He tells the detectives where they can find Carla's body. Medavoy and Jones go back at Charles Slocum about the fact two shells were found at the scene. Slocum denies killing Carla and setting up a "Romeo and Juliet" situation. Meanwhile McDowell can't find anyone with any information about Hatcher. Sipowicz can't believe that nobody wants to talk about this guy; "he's fine" is the only response that anyone seems to come up with. Lonnie Parker is brought in and questioned by Sipowicz and Clark about the shooting. He tells them he didn't know anything about the shooting and that he had no beef with the victim who was a new tenant in the building. He finally relents and tells them that he saw two Latin Kings with the victim that morning. As a result Ortiz and Hatcher bring Lopez in for a reinterview, but Hatcher's tough attitude with Lopez doesn't sit well with Ortiz, who warns Hatcher to not let it happen again. The detectives review e-mails between Charles Slocum and the victim. A phone dump also reveals that Calvin Parker had been talking with his father throughout the day. A TARU Tech drops of more information from Slocum's computer. Before the TARU Tech leaves, Sipowicz gets his attention and accompanies him down to the lobby. McDowell finds an e-mail that indicated that Slocum very likely had no intention of killing himself, since the day before he was to kill himself he was making plans to attend a concert next month. Medavoy and Jones confront him with this additional evidence. He tells them the only thing they can prove was that he failed to commit suicide. With his transport of the gun and assisting in the suicide he is looking at ten years at least. Sipowicz and Clark talk again with Calvin Parker about his father and he tells them that he did give his father some information (obtained from Hatcher) that would help him through his interview with the detectives. They show Calvin in custody to his father and Lonnie confesses to shooting the victim, who caused nothing but trouble in his building since he moved in. Haywood and the detectives tell Carla's bereaved father about his daughter's fate and what will probably happen to Charles Slocum. Hatcher knows that Sipowicz is the man in the squad and he wants to know if Ortiz is "stand-up" and going to cause him any trouble for the incident in the interview room. With a promise to observe the squad and not "double-up" interviews, Hatcher and Sipowicz agree to make a fresh start tomorrow; meanwhile, McDowell has found out that Hatcher is the nephew of the Chief of Personnel. After passing that information on she leaves for home and maternity leave. Sipowicz tells Gibson that he knows about his and Hatcher's relationship to the Chief of Personnel. He hopes that Gibson will have "the spine" to get rid of Hatcher when the time comes. After Gibson leaves, the TARU Tech returns to the squad with a device for Sipowicz. It is a tape recorder that Sipowicz sets by the parrot cage, where it will continually play the word "douche bag."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

      A Jewish jeweler is gunned down outside of his shop. His widow tells Sipowicz and Clark that a white guy who's recently converted to Islam had been giving her husband some trouble lately. Clark gets the address for Tim Garrity, the recent convert to Islam; just as Jones gets a call that Michael's aunt has been brutally assaulted. Jones and Medavoy go to the aunt's apartment. Jones talks with Michael, who tells Jones that his aunt wasn't seeing anyone, and that his father wasn't around. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the converted Muslim. A uniform is bringing in Michael's dad and Jones is preparing himself for the pending interview. Rodriguez suggests that Medavoy and Ortiz take the interview, that way Jones won't succumb to his desire to beat the crap out of Craig Woodruff and give him what he wants. McDowell interviews an employee of the dead jeweler and she tells her that her boss had an ugly argument over the phone with a rapper named "DJ Drayno." Rodriguez has her get the info to Sipowicz and Clark for a follow-up. Medavoy and Ortiz talk with Craig Woodruff and try to bluff him into a confession that he isn't falling for. Sipowicz and Clark find "DJ Drayno" and bring him in for questioning. "DJ Drayno" tells them that the jewels he got from their victim turned out to be worthless and his argument with the victim was about getting a refund. Michael stops by the squad to find out if Det. Jones had found out anything about his aunt. Jones is out for lunch, and Medavoy and Ortiz tell him they haven't found anything yet. As Michael is ready to leave, Sipowicz decides to have a talk with Michael about his father. Jones enters the room and tells Michael to leave for school and then tells Sipowicz that he needs to leave Michael alone and let him decide when it is time to come clean on his father's involvement in the death of his mother and the probable beating of his aunt. The jeweler's widow has come in to answer some questions. She tells them about another one of those musicians who extorted her husband in the past by trying to get compensated for a necklace that wasn't the same one he had sold him. At the hospital, Jones, Medavoy and Ortiz go into Tammy Carlyle's room and she tries to tell them she was beaten by someone other than Craig Woodruff. She knows that even if she did finger him as the assailant, there is a good chance that when he gets out of prison he will come after her. After all, that's what he did to his wife. After being out for an hour, Rodriguez returns to the office and gets an update from on the jeweler case. "DJ Drayno" and the other musician the widow mentioned both have the same manager, Osias Freeland. Freeland comes into the office and tells them that his conversation with the jeweler last night was going to result in the replacement of the phony necklace. In the meantime, McDowell finds outs that Garrity, the Islam convert hasn't been seen at his mosque all day. Sipowicz and Clark are going to leave to go in search of him, when Michael comes into the squad and tells Jones that he wants to talk with Sipowicz. Michael tells Sipowicz that his father wasn't involved in his aunt's beating, but he does tell him that he did witness his father killing his mother. Sipowicz comes out and tells the other detectives what Michael has told him; he also tells Jones that Michael considers him a father figure and that is why he couldn't confess his real father's guilt. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Garrity again. He confesses to them that he wasn't at the mosque for morning prayers; ins
