Episode Summary

EDIT
Here Comes the Son
AIRED:
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
