Episode Summary

EDIT
Officer Laughlin is back on the job when the detectives arrive on the scene of the murder of a carjacker. The carjacker was shot in a struggle with an unknown man who went running off after the shot was fired. The carjacking victim, Denise Woodson is anxious when the detectives have to keep her car to process the crime scene. McDowell and Ortiz go to the last known address of the DOA to see what they can find. What they find is a filthy apartment that has three small children in the bathroom. Crime scene reports to Sipowicz that they found two ounces of cocaine in Woodson's car, they leave to bring Woodson in. Rita is planning a rendezvous for John, and she asks John Irvin to help her with the conspiracy. Rodriguez gets a call from Queens, and they want him to report to a crime scene. Jones and Medavoy go to talk with the social worker who's been handling the welfare of the three children. He asks them what happened to the fourth. He tells them he will get them the file on the children, as soon as he can find it; but more importantly where they might find the mother, if she has begun using again. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson and ask her about the cocaine. She claims to know nothing about it and they tell her because it was found in her car, it is hers, unless she can tell them something otherwise. She gives them the name of her boss and the musician she was going to deliver the package to. Rodriguez gets to Queens and finds out that Angela is dead. She may have been doing speedballs of heroin, but he doesn't believe that and wants crime scene to process the site and do a full workup. He wants the truth about her death uncovered. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson's boss, who denies any knowledge of the cocaine. He does tell them that she has a brother who just recently got out of prison for drugs. They decide he might be worth looking into. John Irvin attempts to pass a message onto to Clark Jr. about an "in service" training session he needs to attend at the Hyatt in Mid-Town. Clark Jr. asks to see if it can be rescheduled, John Irvin says he'll try. Rodriguez returns and a witness to the carjacking indicates that Woodson talked with the unknown for a good 20 seconds before he left the scene of the carjacking. McDowell and Ortiz have found the abandoned children's mother, Joyce Bradovich and they bring her in for questioning. She tells them she left her baby with her cousin. Then she finds out they visited her apartment. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk with Woodson's brother and he tells them what went down. They don't believe him, but despite that he offers to have it all put on him, so his sister won't suffer. When they ask how much cocaine there was, he misses it by two ounces, so it isn't going to go on him. McDowell and Ortiz visit the apartment of Bradovich's cousin and find out that her baby isn't there. Rodriguez talks with Andrew Taylor about their investigation into Angela's death and he tries to find from him if he knew she was doing heroine. McDowell and Ortiz go back at Bradovich about the whereabouts of her baby. She tells them she hasn't been visited by her social worker in over a year. She finally tells them that she left the baby on the roof of her building. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. try to make a deal with Woodson to help her out, but she wants to "bet her life" that her musician boyfriend will stand up for her and tell the truth. Up on the roof, Ortiz finds the baby. They go back to Bradovich and tell her they know the baby has been dead at least a week. Bradovich confesses to having burned the baby to death when she was trying to give it a hot bath. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. run their case by Haywood, which is probably going to go the way they suspect, Woodson will go down for the possession on her own. Before he leaves Rodriguez's office, Sipowicz gets Rodriguez to tell him what's been going on that has mind elsewhere. Sipowicz tells Rodriguez that he can talk to him anytime. McDowell and Ortiz try to run the possibility of charging the social worker with child endangerment with Haywood. She tells the best they'll be able to do is get him fired. The social worker arrives, with his paperwork and demonstrates to the detectives his ignorance of the some of the children in his files. He only manages to piss McDowell off. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Woodson's boyfriend, who won't back up her story. As they expected, they have to take her to central booking to be processed. That evening, Rodriguez goes to visit his former in-laws to give them the bad news about Angela. John goes to the hotel for his training session and is delighted to find Rita is there instead. At the Sipowicz/McDowell household, Connie and Andy reflect upon the day's events and how lucky they are.moreless
