Episode Summary

EDIT
Hit the Road, Clark
AIRED:
Sipowicz and Clark Jr. come to a working agreement. Clark Jr. promises that his father won't interfere anymore, but Sipowicz is reluctant to believe that. Eddie Gibson moves from night watch to the dayshift and is partnered with McDowell on a DOA. Medavoy and Jones help Sipowicz and Clark Jr. in looking into the death of a corrections officer from Rikers. Gibbons puts to rest any fears McDowell might have, having a man as a partner, while she just tries to adjust having him as a partner. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview their victim's ex-boyfriend, but until they find her car they don't find any concrete leads. A receipt from last night leads to a drugstore. McDowell and Clark interview their victim's mother and then her ex-husband, whom they find and bring in, but neither leads to anything. The stakeout of the drugstore gets the other detectives a man who was last seen with the corrections officer, but in his interview he points to his friend Darrell who was with him and the victim for their sexual encounter. When a phone dump comes back on the victim's apartment showing phone calls to and from her mother's home, McDowell brings the victim's mother back in. When the mother comes in with her granddaughter, McDowell interviews the granddaughter, to ascertain the whereabouts of her grandmother. The victim's mother reveals her feeling that her daughter was unfit to be a mother and her daughter's intention to keep her daughter. The mother did what she felt she had to do for her granddaughter's benefit. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. discuss how to write up the 5's on their case, after Darrell has told them point blank that he shot the woman for her gun, after she had put her gun away. Clark Jr. goes to Rikers in search of more background information on the victim, so that he can determine how to write up his case. When that is done, he returns home for the evening to find out that his father has thrown him out.moreless
