Episode Summary

EDIT
In-Laws, Outlaws
AIRED:
A body is found in an alley. The victim is Nicholas, the homeless guy that was supposed to be in lockup overnight. Sorenson has some words with the desk sergeant when he returns to the house. Fancy negotiates a deal with the desk sergeant, to keep the peace and to keep Sorenson out of trouble. All Sorenson has to do is apologize, given his current state of mind it might not be too easy. Mauricio is brought back in from Rikers' to get him to give up the location of Diego who is still their prime suspect in the Jefe homicide and now perhaps Nicholas's murder. Nicholas's family comes in and it is revealed that with the money he had he probably could have had a Park Avenue address. They later return when it is discovered that Nicholas made a phone call to them shortly before his death and Nicholas's brother-in-law admits to taking the call. While on a stakeout for Diego Medavoy asks Jones is he's ever thought about asking ADA Haywood out. Jones doesn't want to discuss the topic. They capture Diego and bring him in for questioning. With some convincing from a wound-up Sorenson, Diego admits to the Jefe homicide, but denies knowledge of Nicholas's murder. Later Nicholas's father comes forward with suspicions about his son-in-law who has a gambling problem. The son is brought back in and confesses to seizing the opportunity to get rid of Nicholas, so that his wife could inherit the rest of her mother's estate and help pay off his gambling debt. Meanwhile, Russell catches a case of murder/suicide; however, it is discovered that the female victim has the e-mail address of Harry Denby in her computer. Not returning Russell's phone calls, Denby contacts Sorenson and after a brief conversation about the murder/suicide he switches the subject to Russell, with who he implies that he had relations. This puts Sorenson over the edge and he has words with Russell up in the squad room and the both storm out. Sipowicz finds Sorenson in a bar and warns him that he is digging a hole, only he doesn't know how deep or if Danny will be able to get out of it. While Sorenson says he's got to work it out himself, Sipowicz lets him know he will be there. Finally Andy has another date that goes well despite his preoccupation with Danny's problem.moreless
