Episode Summary

EDIT
Connie still watching her daughter catches her and a friend with a joint. She brings them to the precinct with the intention of getting to know her daughter and her adoptive parents. Sipowicz, Gibson and Clark Jr. investigate a drug related murder, while McDowell begins to help Medavoy and Jones with their homicide at a construction site, but is anxious to return to the squad. Mrs. Murray joins the detectives in the interviewing of her son Michael, who eventually gives them the name of someone they should be looking at for the murder. Upon McDowell's return she begins to interview her daughter, probing to find out information about her parents and how they've raised her. When Sipowicz returns to the house, he recognizes Connie's collar as her daughter. He re-advises her to let it go, but Connie claims that she only wants to talk with the mother, and then she can go. Sipowicz, Gibson and Clark Jr. interview Carter Freeman, but it doesn't lead anywhere. They advise him that they are going to put the pressure on him and shut his business down. As they apply pressure, they respond to a call and discover that Mrs. Murray has been shot and killed. Jennifer's mother comes in and Connie asks her more questions than she probably should have. In the construction site homicide, the victim's husband, Phillip Connor is brought in. Medavoy and Jones tell him about his wife, only he doesn't believe it. He believed that his wife had died in the World Trade Center attack, since she worked there and went missing around that time. Michael is questioned about his mother's murder and Gibson gets overanxious, causing Sipowicz to get him out of the room. Afterwards Sipowicz tells Gibson he knows about the cancer and Gibson tells him to keep it quiet. Michael admits Freeman killed his mother with his favorite gun that has "a lot of bodies on it". Denise Connor's friend is brought in for questioning, and she admits that Denise was having an affair with James Franklin, who is the owner of a construction company. Richard Beck comes in and tells McDowell that he knows who she is and that she needs to stay away; otherwise he'll get a restraining order. The detectives reacquire Freeman. Jones and Medavoy question Franklin about Denise Connor and his affair; he asks for his lawyer. Haywood advises them that they'll need more evidence before they can convict Franklin. Harrison, an ADA from Brooklyn, talks with Rodriguez about getting a position in the squad for his wife, Det. Rita Ortiz, whose currently in Vice. Rodriguez mentions he doesn't have any openings, but he will keep her at the top of his list. A position may soon open up; however, when Sipowicz tells Rodriguez about Gibson's cancer and the fact that he is going to give the Freeman arrest to Gibson, which should be good for a bump in grade. In the precinct lobby, Connor confronts Franklin about the affair and Jones lays down the law to Franklin, warning him that he will be out their watching him. McDowell's daughter arrives at the precinct and they go out to talk. Rodriguez makes a call that winds up giving Gibson a double bump, up to Detective 1st Grade and will allow him to go out securely on medical leave. In talking with her daughter, Connie realizes that she has made a mistake, since now that her daughter knows she exists, she will always be thinking about her, probably to the point of distraction from the life she has been leading. Later McDowell shows up at Sipowicz's door crying, admitting that she screwed it up bad.moreless
