Episode Summary

EDIT
Fools Russian
AIRED:
Diane consults with a member of the survivor's network over her mixed feelings about her relationship with Danny, while she continually thinks about Bobby. The body of a Russian is found floating in the river. The detectives begin their task of figuring out who he is and why he was found there. The floating victim's wife Ivgenia comes into the squad and shows reservations about talking with Baldwin, she feels more comfortable when Diane is in the room. In the meantime, her black gardener says that he and Ivgenia are having a relationship and that she shot her husband. A bit suspect, given the impression of racism she's given to Baldwin and she later says that he shot her husband. ADA Valerie Haywood suggests that they go after the gardener because in this "he said/she said" situation they've got, the case will be easier to prosecute. The detectives disagree and arrest the wife. Meanwhile, Greg spends the day dealing with two Chinese men who've been brought into the squad. They are only speaking Chinese, so he brings in his friend Harold Eng to translate. The Chinese men are in fear of a gang known as the Snakeheads and are known to be keeping one of the men's sister hostage. Greg and Harold stake out the restaurant that the aunt of the kidnapped Chinese girl owns. They get a trace on the telephone number and are able to recover the niece. Fancy is out of the office getting computer training, just as the technology arrives in the squad, right on Sipowicz's desk. Of course, he doesn't want it. Later, Baldwin and Valerie have a few words over his disappointment with her handling of the case. Danny and Diane have the final set of words regarding their relationship, it's over but she thanks him for helping her "come alive" again. Andy and Theo discuss kissing, with Theo wondering why Andy and Aunt Katie don't kiss. Andy evades the topic.moreless
