Episode Summary

EDIT
Sipowicz is doing a little studying and Medavoy catches him; he confesses that he is studying for the sergeant's exam. Medavoy quips that Sipowicz's career is on the upswing, while his own is going down; he isn't sure what his future holds for him, Sipowicz reassures him that he is a good cop and he'll get through this. Jones is looking to take some lost time; the final custody determination hearing for Michael is set for this afternoon. Bale grants him the time to do what he needs to do and then Medavoy comes into his office to plead his case, but Bale isn't going to cut him any slack. The jury in the trial against Simon Kerensky is hung and the judge declares a mistrial. It will be necessary for Lucy Welker to testify again, only it probably won't happen until February. Faced with this new burden, Lucy wonders why no one else involved has to deal with this, she blurts out the name Ike, which is the name of Simon Kerensky's brother. Lucy tries to backtrack mentioning that name. In the precincts lobby, Jones asks a couple of fellow cops to help set up Craig Woodruff into making a drug buy and if it looks like it will take to long to pull off, perhaps the matter could be helped along with something being planted on Woodruff. They are reluctant to get involved and Jones tells them not to worry about it. Lucy Welker is briefed on how she will be protected for the near term. While she is being taken through the lobby when they are leaving they encounter Sipowicz, who is bringing Ike Kerensky in. The sighting makes Lucy Welker uncomfortable and she wants Det. Clark to bring her to see her doctor. Ike Kerensky doesn't believe that Lucy Welker has anything to worry about from his brother and he also has nothing but good things to say about him. While Clark and Lucy Welker are walking down the street, Clark spots a man who begins to fire on the pair. Clark shoots back and takes the gunman out and gets a partial plate number on the white Cadillac that drove away. He calls it in and his colleagues arrive to help assess the situation. Medavoy meets with his delegate and a trustee. The trustee recommends that he take the 30 day rip, but despite that advice Medavoy decides he is going to bear the burden of the trial room. Bobbi Kingston reports to Jones that Michael's father had attended his son's parent-teacher conference this morning. Despite the fact that Craig Woodruff didn't yet have the right to do it, his lawyer is probably going to use that to show the judge that he is taking an interest in his son. She tells him that school reported that Michael was upset by the situation and Jones who is frustrated by these events vents his feelings toward Bobbi, who has only been trying to help Jones and Michael through this situation. As she leaves she reminds him that she is not the enemy. As Sipowicz enters the precinct lobby, one of the cops that Jones had approached earlier tells him about what Jones had asked them to do to Craig Woodruff. Sipowicz tells him that he'll talk to Jones. Lucy Welker's sister Janet comes into the squad wanting to talk to someone in charge. She wants the business with her sister to stop. She wants to take her sister home. Clark stands up for Lucy and when Lucy herself protests against her sister's interference, her sister leaves her to deal with the situation on her own with her police friends. Clark in follow up conversation with Lucy presses her a little more to tell the complete truth and he asks her more about Ike Kerensky's involvement in the case. She tells him that Ike had tried to talk his brother out of setting the fire and she also admits that she and Ike were lovers. Murphy and Ortiz go out to the address attached to the Cadillac that carried Lucy Welker's attempted assassin. Sipowicz and Clark have brought Ike Kerensky back in and they are telling him that he is going to go down as a co-conspirator if he doesn't tell the truth about the fire. They decide to put him in the downstairs lockup to give a taste of what he has to look forward to. The girlfriend of the shooter and owner of the Cadillac isn't moved by the fact that her boyfriend was killed in a shootout with the police as she is when she finds out his accomplice Butchie is the one who was driving her car. Sipowicz tries to talk with Jones about what Moretti told him. Sipowicz tells him to let him play it out, but Jones isn't so trusting that the system is going to work for him. Medavoy tries to give Sipowicz advice for his upcoming exam. The desk sergeant calls upstairs to report that Ike Kerensky tried to hang himself in his cell. At the hospital Sipowicz and Clark try talking Ike Kerensky into doing the right thing. Murphy and Ortiz interview Butchie about his driving the getaway car and he finally tells them that he and his friend were hired by Kerensky. Jones arrives to the hearing late, he wasn't able to find Michael to bring to him to family court. The judge isn't going to proceed in the case until Michael is found. The judge adjourns and leaves the room and then Craig Woodruff makes some threatening remarks to Jones if he doesn't return his son to him. Bobbi Kingston tells Jones that she can help him if he is in fact hiding Michael. Jones indicates that he truly has no idea where Michael is located. Medavoy meets with the lawyer who is going to represent him at his trial; he also thinks that the trial is a bad idea, but since that is what Medavoy wants, that is what they are going to do. Sipowicz and Clark bring Simon Kerensky into the squad. Sipowicz reports in to Bale, who congratulates him on his plan to take the sergeant's exam. Bale offers him his copy of the patrolman's guide, with all his notes in it. ADA Munson and the detectives bring Lucy Welker good news; the driver of the getaway car and Kerensky's brother are going to join her in testifying against Simon Kerensky. Munson commends Clark on his handling of the case. Jones returns to the squad and tells them about Michael's disappearance, they all offer their help.moreless
