Episode Summary

EDIT
Sipowicz meets Clark at the scene of a homicide and tells him that his meeting with Frank Colohan gave him no useful information that would help in his and McDowell's defense against Colohan's parents for custody of Michelle. At the scene of the crime they are beginning to investigate, the victim was reported to have stumbled his way to the front of the bodega and died, presumably as a result of what appears to be an injury to his eye. Back at the squad, Jones arrives late after canvassing Jerry Well's building again. Rodriguez tells him that he needs to be a little more subtle in his investigation into Haywood's beating. It seems Wells has been complaining of harassment. The bank card of Sipowicz and Clark's victim is being use at an OTB near their crime scene. They are going to go back out, but first Sipowicz hears what the other detectives have found on Frank Colohan's parents. Medavoy gets a line from the DEA that Frank Colohan's mother once was busted for smuggling a type of cheese that has trace elements of hemp in it. At the OTB parlor, Sipowicz and Clark find the man who was using their victim's bank card. The man, Bernie Carpenter, knows Sipowicz from years ago, back in the Andy's early days of recovery for his alcoholism but unlike Sipowicz, Bernie hasn't stayed on the wagon, which Sipowicz later talks with him about. They ask him about what he knows about the fight their victim was in. While he saw some of the fight, he didn't get to see the attacker clearly. Medavoy talks with Colohan's guidance counselor about Frank's past. She tells him that Frank has a sister named Adrian, and she recalls a time when Adrian took a turn for the worst. She gives Medavoy the name of a woman that might lead them to finding Adrian. Ortiz has a line on a line on a loan shark that was known to deal with the victim. Making up for his DEA bust news, Medavoy lets the other detectives know about Frank Colohan's sister. A hit comes back on a fingerprint found outside of Haywood's apartment. Jones and Medavoy leave to retrieve the owner of that print. When McDowell needs to run down the location of Frank's sister and Sipowicz is otherwise occupied, Ortiz has to join Clark in the questioning of the loan shark who was brought in for questioning. The former loan shark claims to have forgiven all his loans. He has found religion and has become a Promise Keeper. An anonymous tip comes in the victim was arguing with Marty Irons, an employee of a record shop located a block away from the crime scene. McDowell's not had any luck contacting the woman who knows Frank's sister. She also hasn't heard whether the grandparents are going to be allowed a custodial visit this evening or not. Clark gets a phone call from Dr. Devlin, who he was supposed to meet for lunch. Sipowicz and Clark interview Marty Irons, who acknowledges knowing the victim. He tells what went down, he and victim exchanged a few words, but he and the victim didn't get into a fight. They ask him to appear in a lineup, which Irons agrees to do. Jones and Medavoy start to interview Rinaldi, the man whose fingerprint was found outside Haywood's building. He denies being there, but eventually cops to it, denying knowledge of anyone named Jerry Wells and admitting that he was acting alone. Marty Irons appears in a lineup and Bernie, Sipowicz's alcoholic friend doesn't pick him out of the lineup. Sipowicz feels that Bernie knows more than he is saying. Baldwin stops by Valerie's apartment and tells her with what they now know, it might have been a case of wrong place, wrong time. Of course, Jerry Wells is still out there, does he know enough to stay away from Haywood? Sipowicz and McDowell talk with the woman who was a friend with Frank's sister Adrian. She tells them how Frank's sister was a total "goody-two-shoes" until she got pregnant, had an abortion and started doing alcohol and drugs. Was Frank that baby's father? She gives them some information that should help them find Adrian Caffee. Medavoy makes a connection between Rinaldi and Jerry Wells and they go back at Rinaldi, who doesn't admit to them that he did the crime for Jerry Wells. Sipowicz and Clark go back at Bernie, who they know call the music store just after they had interviewed him that morning. He tells them that he witnessed Marty Irons killing the victim using only his hands. Sipowicz tries to offer some counseling to Bernie. McDowell tells Sipowicz that she's located Adrian Caffee. Jones and Medavoy go to Jerry Well's apartment. Medavoy takes the lead, to help keep Jones temper in check. They bluff Jerry Wells into believing that Rinaldi has given him up and they find out that Wells witnessed Rinaldi kill someone in Singapore years ago and that's what he had been holding over his head. Jones lets his anger almost get the better of him, but Medavoy's presence is the only thing that keeps Wells alive. McDowell and Sipowicz meet with Adrian Caffee and they are truthful with her and ask her some frank questions about her brother Frank and her parents. She denies that it was her brother who got her pregnant; could it have been her father? This seems to strike a nerve with her and she asks them to leave. Clark, who's done a background check on Marty Irons, brings him in and talks with him about a possible self defense strategy for the crime that they are going to charge him with. When their lawyer arrives, McDowell and Sipowicz tell him where they are at with their background checks of the Colohans. The attorney takes a call and tells them that the grandparent's have been awarded a custodial visit. Clark goes on a date with Dr. Devlin, but the doctor gets paged in the midst of their date. Sipowicz arrives at the Child Services office without the baby and tells the grandparents will not be seeing the baby tonight, since the baby has a fever. The grandfather says that the day after tomorrow is the last time they are going to see that child. Sipowicz replies, "We'll see."moreless
