Episode Summary

EDIT
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
