Episode Summary

EDIT
Fancy comes down on Russell and Sorenson for yesterday's display in the squad room. He assigns Sorenson to work with Medavoy and Jones on a subway double homicide and Russell is to get assistance on her apparent murder-suicide case from Sipowicz. Russell runs into Denby while canvassing some of the employees at the courier company, she indicates to him that the relationship with Danny didn't work out and that piques his interest. Further investigation into the murder-suicide reveals that the murder victim was operating a drug distribution network using the courier service, and it now appears as though Harry Denby has taken it over. Det. Olivo, an old friend of Sorenson's from narcotics, meets Sorenson to inform him that the case that is being worked in their squad may jeopardize a case their task force is building. He has to refer Olivo to Russell and Sipowicz, since he is working another case; however his knowledge of Russell getting involved with this case, puts him on edge. The suspect that was brought in on the subway double homicide feels the wrath of Sorenson, when Sorenson beats him. The beating screws up any reasonable chance of prosecuting their suspect, which brings down the wrath of Captain Bass. As a result, the suspect is let go and Sorenson is suspended for an undetermined length of time. Meanwhile, Russell and Sipowicz join the taskforce. Denby arrives on the scene, shoots several people and takes a wounded cop hostage. He asks for Russell and she agrees to go in and left with little choice, she takes him out, permanently. When they return to the squad room, Russell and Sipowicz learn about Sorenson's suspension. Andy talks with Danny about his situation and tells him that since he wanted to work this out for himself, he is now on his own.moreless
