Episode Summary

EDIT
A bus is "hijacked" and wrecked by an inebriated Vince Gotelli, the cop with medical problems and who's a mere 2 months from having 30 years on the job. However, Fancy meets with the bus driver's boss to work out an arrangement about their investigation of the bus incident and he suggests that Vince take a medical retirement. Bobby has regrets about his participation in the FBI investigation into Salvo when the "Rat Squad" begins investigating him for the license plate number he ran. Especially after he discovers no one, Fancy or the FBI will stand up for him. Andy resents that Bobby will not tell him what's going on. Meanwhile, they must investigate the rape and beating (and eventual death) of a woman in her apartment. Their witness identifies the perp, despite his misgivings about doing the right thing. In the end the witness pays the price for his cooperation. With IAB breathing down his neck and the necks of everyone in the squad, Bobby asks Diane to stay somewhere else while he tries to sort everything out.moreless
