Episode Summary

EDIT
Ortiz and Murphy arrived on the scene of a shooting, where two of Sipowicz's men were involved in chasing down a suspect, who got away after he able to shoot one of the officers. Back at the squad, Sipowicz tells the pair about a possible witness to the crime that he saw while they were all still at the scene, an elderly woman sitting at her window. Even though it is Medavoy's last day on the job, Sipowicz doesn't feel like getting his picture taken. With Medavoy leaving Clark is now partnered with Jones and together they go to the scene of crime, where a woman, Deborah Olshan, was beaten to death in her home, a possible victim of a robbery. At the scene they interview Maxine Annunziato, her friend and the one who discovered the body. Murphy and Ortiz talk with the woman that Sipowicz identified as a probable witness to the shooting of the officers. She tells them that she saw the officers enter the building, but she didn't see them chasing anyone. Clark and Jones return to the squad to find Barry Olshan and his attorney waiting for him. They talk with him and he goes over his wife's normal routine. Since there was no obvious sign of forced entry they begin pursuing a line of questioning regarding his business. Also the fact that he has brought his attorney along with him raises some questions in their mind. Clark and Jones interview employees at the jewelry store. One of them opens up about the behavior of Debbie Olshan and her friend, Maxine Annunziato. Ortiz and Murphy meet Off. Perez at the hospital to go through the sequence of events. His recounting is different than that of the woman from across the street. Clark and Jones go back to talk with Maxine Annunziato about the last time she was with her friend. She tells them about a business deal they had going to open a salon and they discussed that. She tells about a man Debbie called "Russian Mike" that they met from time to time when they would go out to the clubs together. "Russian Mike" was interested in the diamond that she wore. On the way back through the precinct lobby, Clark stops and talk with Sipowicz about the current case. When asked about working with Jones, Clark says he thinks its okay, but he tells Sipowicz he'd rather be working with him, something that Sipowicz tells him he doesn't want to hear again. Clark and Jones find out where to find "Russian Mike". Murphy and Ortiz talk with Off. Donatelli about the sequence of events. His story matches the one Perez gave them, but neither matches the description of the witness. When confronted with that information Donatelli starts to become uncooperative. Back at the squad Ortiz comments that she suspects that Donatelli's wife knows something and she believes they should go back and try to talking with her alone. Medavoy is still taking photos on his last day. Jones and Clark return to the squad and ask Bale to join them on hitting the apartment of "Russian Mike." By having Bale come along they don't have to deal with the headache of dealing with Emergency Service. Jones asks Medavoy if he'd like to come along. The detectives enter the apartment, but Bale who is still in the hallway is shot by someone fleeing into the hallway from another apartment. At the hospital the Chief of Detectives, Duffy, has arrived on the scene and he tells Sipowicz to get "out of the bag" and "back in the suit" and start working the case of Bale's shooting. Back at the squad, Barry Olshan comes back in without his attorney and confesses that he uses his business to redistribute money. He tells them about a business dealing he had with Lenny Russo and Maxine Annunziato. He recent embracing of his religion with his wife was having him put a stop to his illegal activities, which also meant he wasn't going to back the hair salon they wanted to open. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Donatelli's wife and she tells them that her husband has terminal cancer, that he didn't want anyone to know about. Back in the suit, Sipowicz tells "Russian Mike" that he will tell him the name of the man who shot Bale. After some convincing, "Russian Mike" gives him the name Sergei Yesenin and he tells them what little he knows about Sergei's possible whereabouts. # Clark and Jones interview Lenny Russo about his possible deal with Barry Olshan, which leads to them getting him to confess to trying to rob the apartment. Debbie Olshan walked in on the middle of the robbery and attacked him. He tells them that Maxine Annunziato gave him all the information he needed to commit the robbery, implicating her. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Perez about what they know about Donatelli's cancer. Perez tells them that they were just trying to look out for Donatelli's family by getting him ¾ quarters of his pension for a line of duty shooting. They talk with Sipowicz, who tells them that an accidental shooting would entitle him to the same thing. He agrees to help them work the paperwork out to Donatelli's advantage. Clark and Jones reinterview Maxine Annunziato about what Lenny Russo told him and what they know. Bale is out of surgery and stable. Following up on the shooter, "Russian Mike"'s information was good but they still haven't located Sergei Yesenin. With all that was going on, everyone has forgotten that it was Medavoy's last day. Sipowicz talks with him and tells him that despite what is currently going on he should still take advantage of his opportunity to have something to go to. Sipowicz "out of the bag" finally agrees to take a photo, with Medavoy.moreless
