Episode Summary

EDIT
A Jewish jeweler is gunned down outside of his shop. His widow tells Sipowicz and Clark that a white guy who's recently converted to Islam had been giving her husband some trouble lately. Clark gets the address for Tim Garrity, the recent convert to Islam; just as Jones gets a call that Michael's aunt has been brutally assaulted. Jones and Medavoy go to the aunt's apartment. Jones talks with Michael, who tells Jones that his aunt wasn't seeing anyone, and that his father wasn't around. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the converted Muslim. A uniform is bringing in Michael's dad and Jones is preparing himself for the pending interview. Rodriguez suggests that Medavoy and Ortiz take the interview, that way Jones won't succumb to his desire to beat the crap out of Craig Woodruff and give him what he wants. McDowell interviews an employee of the dead jeweler and she tells her that her boss had an ugly argument over the phone with a rapper named "DJ Drayno." Rodriguez has her get the info to Sipowicz and Clark for a follow-up. Medavoy and Ortiz talk with Craig Woodruff and try to bluff him into a confession that he isn't falling for. Sipowicz and Clark find "DJ Drayno" and bring him in for questioning. "DJ Drayno" tells them that the jewels he got from their victim turned out to be worthless and his argument with the victim was about getting a refund. Michael stops by the squad to find out if Det. Jones had found out anything about his aunt. Jones is out for lunch, and Medavoy and Ortiz tell him they haven't found anything yet. As Michael is ready to leave, Sipowicz decides to have a talk with Michael about his father. Jones enters the room and tells Michael to leave for school and then tells Sipowicz that he needs to leave Michael alone and let him decide when it is time to come clean on his father's involvement in the death of his mother and the probable beating of his aunt. The jeweler's widow has come in to answer some questions. She tells them about another one of those musicians who extorted her husband in the past by trying to get compensated for a necklace that wasn't the same one he had sold him. At the hospital, Jones, Medavoy and Ortiz go into Tammy Carlyle's room and she tries to tell them she was beaten by someone other than Craig Woodruff. She knows that even if she did finger him as the assailant, there is a good chance that when he gets out of prison he will come after her. After all, that's what he did to his wife. After being out for an hour, Rodriguez returns to the office and gets an update from on the jeweler case. "DJ Drayno" and the other musician the widow mentioned both have the same manager, Osias Freeland. Freeland comes into the office and tells them that his conversation with the jeweler last night was going to result in the replacement of the phony necklace. In the meantime, McDowell finds outs that Garrity, the Islam convert hasn't been seen at his mosque all day. Sipowicz and Clark are going to leave to go in search of him, when Michael comes into the squad and tells Jones that he wants to talk with Sipowicz. Michael tells Sipowicz that his father wasn't involved in his aunt's beating, but he does tell him that he did witness his father killing his mother. Sipowicz comes out and tells the other detectives what Michael has told him; he also tells Jones that Michael considers him a father figure and that is why he couldn't confess his real father's guilt. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Garrity again. He confesses to them that he wasn't at the mosque for morning prayers; instead he was at a massage parlor, where he is a regular. McDowell finds out that Osias Freeland has made numerous calls to a costume jeweler. Sipowicz and Clark decide they need to bring him in for further questioning. Rodriguez stops Ortiz, who is on her way out with Jones and Medavoy to pick up Craig Woodruff, and asks her if she'd be available for dinner that evening. Sipowicz and Clark reinterview Freeland, who eventually cops to the fact that he replaced the real jewels with fakes. Jones goes into the bar and arrests Craig Woodruff and since his own son has sold him out, Woodruff is happy to let Jones take care of him. Later that evening at dinner, Rita wonders what her situation with Tony is. He asks her if they could be together, free and clear of their current on the job relationship, would she be interested in pursuing something further. He tells her about an outside job offer he has had and knowing with the outcome of his trial that he will never rise above his current rank he is considering the opportunity, which would make him "free and clear." Rita is definitely interested. Baldwin takes Michael to his apartment, where he tells him that he can live here and that he will pursue the paperwork that will officially let him be Michael's guardian.moreless
