Sipowicz plays the answering machine message she left for their victim. She tells them the victim was gay and is "a grade A prick." Jones and Medavoy talk with Roy Pardee and he tells him that he really doesn't know anything about his wife's personal life, she is very secretive. After discussing the case, Rita reminds John about the naïveté of the concept of remaining friends during the short term. At the criminal courts building, Haywood tries to keep a jury convicted drug dealer Jerry Wells from being released on bail (the only witness against him has recanted his testimony). The judge lets Wells go, but as he prepares to leave, he makes a comment to Haywood about there being no hard feelings and he winks at her as he leaves the courtroom. McDowell and Ortiz talk with Justin Tangier who they've found is using their victim's credit card. He tells them that he was using the in conjunction with his band that the victim was backing. He gives them the name Remy Blanchard as his alibi. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's co-worker, whom they've been told that he is more than friends with. He tells them about that the relationship that their victim has with her husband Roy Pardee. Blanchard confirms Justin's alibi; but the fingerprint on the murder weapon gives the detectives the name of an AWOL Marine named Russell Stokes, whom another witness says was seen with Blanchard. Sipowicz and Clark go the apartment of Remy Blanchard and they get him to admit knowing Stokes. They get Blanchard to place a call to Stokes and have him return to the apartment. When Stokes returns, Sipowicz and Clark take him into custody. Jones and Medavoy reinterview Roy Pardee about his wife. They tell him they also know about his previous marriage to another mail order bride, who mysteriously disappeared a few years earlier. Sipowicz and Clark bring Stokes into the precinct. Before they can get him to the pokey room for questioning, John Irvin has a chance to see him and recognizes something in him that he had gone through 15 years earlier, which is being gay and coming to grips with it. Stokes is brought into the pokey room and gives them his story, which is that Justin had brought him to the victim's apartment and that he woke up with the murder weapon in his hand. When confronted with being outed, Stokes tries to position himself as being able to commit to the crime. He tells them that they need to talk to Justin. John Irvin has witnessed their interview of Stokes. Jones and Medavoy run their case by Rodriguez as Haywood arrives. She is there to talk with Jones about the creepy feeling she got from Jerry Wells earlier in the day. He gets Wells information from her and tells her that he will take care of it.

They get him to admit to concocting a story with Justin and they bring him to the pokey to confront Justin. Justin gives them the story of what happened. Jones and Medavoy interview Pardee's brother, who they suspect may have assisted his brother in beating his current wife and getting rid of his first wife. Using his FBI lie detection technique, Medavoy get Pardee's brother (who is slow of mind) to confess to his crimes. The brother confesses that he alone had killed his brother's first wife and beat his current wife, since both women were just using his brother.
