Episode Summary

EDIT
Ortiz gets word from a man that his wife and her husband are having an affair. The man has a copy of an e-mail that his wife and her husband may be rendezvousing later that afternoon. The detectives catch a homicide from the night watch. When Ortiz and McDowell begin question a potential witness, her mother comes along, tells them that her daughter knows nothing and takes her away. The detectives discuss strategy for their case. Sipowicz asks Clark Jr. and McDowell to continue working the case without him; he is going to spend some time working on "nailing this Beacham asshole". Jones and Medavoy are assigned to another homicide, while looking into the case, Jones tells Medavoy about Haywood's condition. Medavoy is a little put out; when he finds out that he wasn't the first to know. Sipowicz tells Beacham about his investigation into Beacham's dealing with Mrs. Hornby's money. McDowell, Clark Jr. and Ortiz have a witness that refuses to give anything up, fearing the recriminations of going against Tito. Some tension begins to mount between Jones and Medavoy. Haywood's mishandling of a case the previous week allowed their suspected gunman, Tito, to be free this week; upset with herself she leaves the squad, without Jones getting a chance to speak with her. Sipowicz interviews one of Beacham's bookkeepers, and he agrees to be a witness. Jones and Medavoy interview a drag queen as a possible suspect in their investigation, but she points to Palo. Clark Jr., McDowell and Ortiz go to bring Tito in for questioning, but when they collar him a friend of his says something in Spanish that causes Ortiz to turn around the slap the friend. The interview of Tito goes nowhere. Ortiz flies off the handle and McDowell confronts her on the way out, but Ortiz isn't listening. Her mind is elsewhere and she arrives at the hotel where her husband's rendezvous is supposed to take place and she catches him in the act. She tells him to be out of their home by morning. Sipowicz comes to Beacham's office to arrest him for grand larceny, fraud and embezzlement. Jones and Medavoy interview a woman who's in love with Palo; she can't give them Palo's location, but mentions the name of Palo's lawyer. They go to the lawyer's office and learn that Palo will be their soon. While waiting for Palo, Jones tries to clear things up with Medavoy. Clark Jr. and McDowell bring in the woman and her daughter and Haywood tries to reassure the mother about what will happen. The girl readily IDs Tito, but he's still not giving it up, feeling confident that no one in the neighborhood is going to back up the ID. Jones and Medavoy bring Palo in for an interview, he tells them he was there when she died, but that she killed herself. With the knife injuries she had, its doubtful that she was able to stab herself in the front and the back; but that is where this case is left. Ortiz returns back to the squad and tells McDowell about what was going on. Sipowicz also returns and finds out that Mrs. Hornby isn't going to sign the complaint. Another witness comes forward who will identify Tito and can give them the names of others who will also come forward. Sipowicz goes to Mrs. Hornby's apartment to advise her not to drop the complaint and she agrees. At Baldwin's apartment, Valerie arrives and they discuss the fate of their unborn child. They decide they are going to keep their baby; meanwhile Sipowicz delivers Mrs. Hornby back out into the real world.moreless
