Episode Summary

EDIT
Sipowicz and Clark have dinner and a conversation. Clark doesn't want anyone else to get "checked out" of his life and Sipowicz makes a deal that if Clark sticks around, he'll stick around, which reiterates his statement back at the squad locker room that he isn't going anywhere. Clark and Sipowicz arrive on the scene where a woman, Lucy Welker, was beaten by a guy she describes a white homeless guy that looks like a lion. She can't give them any better description than that. Medavoy arrives to work with a black eye, given to him by a woman he describes as 5 foot nothing and Murphy offers him some makeup to help reduce the shine. Bobbi Kingston comes by to tell Jones that Michael's father is applying for visitation rights and probably eventually custody. Jones is surprised to find out that the hearing is this afternoon. Bale arrives at the squad, with a note to give someone a call, he is brought up to speed on the morning's cases and notices Medavoy's shiner, which he asks him about. Medavoy tries to pass it off as an accident in the shower. ADA Munson comes to the squad to talk about Lucy Welker, it turns out that she is material witness in a case they have against her boss Simon Kerensky. Munson wants to put some of their own people on the case, given the support she was given by the pair on the recent McClintock case. She decides to give them a chance and Clark owns up to her that he was entirely responsible for the trouble on that last case. Sipowicz and Clark go to prison to interview Kerensky. He doesn't know anything about the attack, but asks them to give Lucy his best. Ortiz reports that Lucy Welker has purchased a bus ticket out of town. She and Murphy are sent off to collect her from the bus terminal. James McGowan stops by the squad at Lt. Bale's invitation and following up on an anonymous tip Bale asks him about Medavoy's possible employment at his bar. McGowan denies his employment, but Bale, detecting a lie, threatens to come down on him if he doesn't tell him the truth. McGowan leaves the office and Medavoy waits in anticipation of Bale's next move. Meanwhile, Jones talks with a lawyer about what can and cannot be done regarding the hearing with Craig Woodruff. Murphy and Ortiz find Lucy Welker and manage to bring her in, where Lt. Bale is laying into her about her legal status if she runs. The detectives manage to get him to back down and Clark gets her to talk about what really happened this morning. She tells them that Lou DaSilva, one of Kerensky's employees, threatened her if she goes through with her testimony against Kerensky. She is so scared at the moment that she'd rather be put in jail than testify. Jones talks with Craig Woodruff about Michael. Woodruff claims that he has straightened out his act and is grateful to Jones for all that he has done for his son. Sipowicz is searching for Lou DaSilva and he gets a line on where he can be found, so he and Clark go after him. Lucy Welker's sister Janet arrives at the squad and she tells Murphy and Ortiz what she thinks about her sister's ability to go through with her testimony. Jones meets with Michael and he tells him about his father's request for visitation rights. Sipowicz and Clark have returned with Lou DaSilva and talk with him about his whereabouts this morning. Lou DaSilva denies knowing Welker, but then admits to attacking her in an attempt to steal her purse. Lou DaSilva tells the detectives that he rather do the time for the assault than do anything that will hurt Kerensky, because if he does that, he knows that he is done. Bale calls Medavoy into his office and tells him that he knows about his job moonlighting at McGowan's. Bale tells him to turn himself over to IAB, but he should continuing working his regular duty while this makes its way through the system. Sipowicz gives Medavoy some things to think about, including talking to his delegate and the option of turning in his papers. At family court the visitation hearing begins and both sides present their arguments for the judge. With no compelling evidence against Craig Woodruff, the judge grants one supervised visit per week, pending a psychological evaluation. Lucy Welker is brought in to give her testimony against Kerensky. She is very nervous and Clark offers her support, which helps her to get through it. Jones brings Michael for his first visit with his father. Clark, Munson, Lucy Welker and her sister return to the squad; since Lucy was not able to complete her testimony she will need to return to court in the morning. Bale won't authorize overtime, but Clark volunteers to keep an eye on Lucy's apartment. Sipowicz offers his assistance in getting her place setup, even though it is not on his way home. Medavoy talks with his delegate about his options. The delegate tells him about the option of going to see a doctor and see about getting a stint, which can get you out on a disability right away with ¾ quarters of his pay. At Lucy's apartment, Sipowicz and Clark make sure the place is secure. Clark assures her that he will be across the street in his car and available if she needs him. And that is where he begins to pass the night.moreless
