Episode Summary

EDIT
Faith Chandler, a hooker, was murdered in the apartment of a former madam. Chandler was working an AA program. The former madam gives Sipowicz and Clark the name, Bob Cavanaugh, a man she knows was one of the victim's clients. Brigid Scofield comes to the squad to see Medavoy about a possible apartment she's found for him. Caught a little off guard, he agrees to meet her at lunch to look at the apartment (that of course he doesn't really want, need or more importantly can afford). Murphy and Ortiz go to the scene of a woman, Tracy Llewellyn, who was found murdered. The landlord tells them that the woman's apartment was being paid for (in cash) by designer named Hal Matheson. Bob Cavanaugh comes in for questioning with Sipowicz and Clark. He admits to knowing Faith Chandler and having more than a business relationship with her but he hadn't seen her in two weeks. Murphy and Ortiz go to the Hal Matheson's design studio and meet his wife, Paige. When he calls into the studio, Paige lets him know that some nice and pretty detectives want to question him. Hal Matheson meets them at the precinct. They break the news to him about his lover's death. Matheson obviously doesn't want his wife know and they promise to try to keep it out of their investigation. A dump on Tracy Llewellyn's phone indicates that calls were made to the home of an Annabelle Matheson. Medavoy talks to Jones about his situation with Brigid Scofield. Jones tries to tell him that if she really likes him, she will be able to deal with the realities of his financial situation. Murphy and Ortiz see Matheson coming out of Annabelle's apartment, kissing her and the two kids. They stop him and bring him in for further questioning. He admits to them that he has two wives and tells him how he did that and having a girlfriend besides. Beside the ongoing murder investigation, the detectives want to hold him and also charge him with bigamy. He tells them that he isn't actually legally married to Annabelle. The AA sponsor of Faith Chandler comes into the squad with information for Sipowicz and Clark. She gives Sipowicz a list of names that the victim felt that she had hurt over the years. She also tells them about a guy that she had met at a meeting. Sipowicz tells her about his 8 years and gets her to tell him about a 5:00 PM that she had seen that man attend in the past. Murphy and Ortiz are back at the victim's apartment and find out from her answering machine that she was pregnant. They go to the clinic, where the receptionist tells about Tracy and Matheson's visit with the doctor and the fact that a private detective was also inquiring about the pair. Meanwhile back at the squad information comes in that Faith Chandler's death matches another one from the 9th precinct. Bale is going to find out if there any other homicides out that might fit this possible pattern. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Annabelle about her husband's whereabouts. She gives them his schedule, which matches his story. They tell her about her husband's infidelity with their victim and the fact that she was pregnant. Annabelle doesn't believe that her husband is capable of the crime. The detectives don't tell her about her husband's other wife. Sipowicz goes to the AA meeting and confronts Paul Hartley about his relationship with Faith Chandler. Medavoy starts to look at the apartment, but then does the honorable thing and confesses his financial difficulties. She asks if he has ever tried to do anything about that. He tells her the bouncer story, and she suggests that he consider trying real estate. She asks him to join him on the possible closing of a deal later that evening. He agrees to give it a try. Back at the squad, Murphy and Ortiz talk with the private investigator, who tells them that the woman who hired him Paige Matheson also inquired about the possibility of getting rid of Tracy Llewellyn. With a third case, a taskforce is going to be created to try and find a suspect and Bale is even authorizing overtime. Murphy and Ortiz go to the studio to collect Paige and bring her into the squad. They ask her what she knows about Tracy Llewellyn and her hiring of the private investigator and her attempt to hire him to get rid of her. Jones interrupts their interview to tell them that Paige's car went into the city at 3:15 AM that morning. They confront Paige about the car, and then they tell her about Annabelle, Matheson's other wife. Paige admits to having seen the victim in an attempt to convince her not to have the child. They get her to write up her story and tell her to get a good lawyer. When taking her out of the pokey room, Paige gets to meet Annabelle. Then they tell Annabelle who the woman was who attacked her and that she isn't legally married to Matheson. They break the news to Matheson that his wives know the truth, but despite not being legally married to him, Annabelle looks like she is going to be staying by his side. Medavoy and Brigid Scofield show off the property and Medavoy's advice to the husband seals the deal on the property. Now Brigid Scofield wants to take him out for a drink and see if Medavoy can close another deal. The task force convenes and Bale lays out the plan, the females will speak at the meetings and try to appear vulnerable. Murphy gets up and speaks at an AA Meeting with Clark watching and Sipowicz is doing the same with Ortiz at another meeting.moreless
