Episode Summary

EDIT
The detectives begin looking into the fire-bombing of an abortion clinic that killed a security guard. While waiting to talk with the woman in charge of the clinic, Clark Jr. asks Sipowicz if Theo has an interest in blondes, intimating that he is aware that Sipowicz and McDowell appear to spending time together. When they ask the woman in charge of the clinic to open her record books to help them get a lead on who may have committed the crime. Citing the need for patient confidentiality she denies their request. McDowell & Ortiz catch their own case and go off to investigate the homicide; meanwhile Sipowicz and Clark Jr. question the leader of an anti-abortion group that leads them nowhere. Medavoy and Jones look into gun that a guy found in a car he obtained from his late uncle. Ortiz recognizes their homicide victim as the woman her husband Don was having an affair with. 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. She gives them a list of patients from the last year, with notes on the names that they might want to look at first. McDowell and Ortiz hear that the husband of Don's mistress has been found dead. Ballistics on the gun that Jones and Medavoy have is linked to a five year old dump job homicide. The father of the woman who owned the car that the gun was found in is brought in and he tells them about his daughter and the guy she was dating at the time, Sonny Wood. He identifies their Jane Doe as being his daughter who he'd thought left town five years earlier. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. start down the list of names and begin to interview women about their experience with the clinic. McDowell and Ortiz see their latest victim, and then they go to Don's apartment to see if they can find any trace of him there. They don't. Clark Jr. makes a discovery when looking at the patient list; he sees Haywood's name listed. Jones and Medavoy interview Sonny Wood who denies any knowledge of his girlfriend's death. Ortiz finds out that a call was placed to one of their victim's from the inn where Ortiz had found her husband cheating on her, so she and McDowell decide to go the inn and check it out. Clark Jr. shows Jones the patient list from the clinic and Jones doesn't know exactly what it means. The clinic doctor and her lawyer show up at the squad, threatening to sue the department and the detectives individually if they didn't turn over the list of names they have. Jones confronts Haywood about her name being on the patient list, she tells him that she just went there for counseling and wonders why he would think that she lied about the miscarriage. He asks what she expected; since she's kept him out of the decision making all along when he wanted to help. She asks if it is because he loved her or because he felt duty bound. McDowell and Ortiz arrive at the hotel and find the body of ADA Don Harrison. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview a battered woman whose husband may have been involved in the clinic bombing. They play her the tape of his 911 and she recognizes his voice. She tells them where to find her husband and they bring him in and play the tape for him as well and get his confession. A still tense, from his encounter with Haywood, Jones with Medavoy and their tenuous pieces of evidence, get their suspect to confess to the five year old murder. The new Captain in IAB comes to the squad and talks with Rodriguez about his relationship with Ortiz; it seems that Harrison had raised it as an issue with some of his colleagues. Rodriguez tells him his relationship ha sonly been supervisory in nature and that he runs a "clean squad and if he wants to waste his time proving otherwise, be my guest." Jones and Haywood decide to cool it for a while. McDowell cancels her plans with Sipowicz and Theo as she is going to take Ortiz out to dinner. Instead the entire squad decides to stick together and take fellow team member Ortiz out to dinner; leaving John Irvin to do the baby-sitting.moreless
