Episode Summary

EDIT
Ortiz is still working undercover at one of the AA meetings and she is approached by a man who wants her to sell her hair. Then another man at the meeting, Justin Deroos asks her out to breakfast, but an interruption by a new potential sponsor for Ortiz interrupts his invitation. Sipowicz, who is also at the same meeting gets a call, they have another related homicide on their hands to respond to. Ortiz and Sipowicz arrive at the scene and join the others in the investigation. Sipowicz and Clark interview the victim's sister, her sister's story fits the pattern of AA victims. Back at the squad Ortiz floats the theory that the perp might also be a woman, as the woman who approached her at the morning's meeting seemed like she could be more than capable of strangling someone. Jones takes a call on another homicide; Bale assigns Clark to work with him so that Sipowicz can remain working on the taskforce. Clark and Jones go to the scene and find that the victim is Steve McClintock, the male nurse who was allowed to go free a couple of months ago when it was discovered that Clark had slept with the prime witness against him, Carly Landis. At the scene they find evidence of drugs. Carly Landis is brought in for questioning; she tells them that she hasn't been in contact with McClintock lately. She also tells them that she knows he was in need of money and probably had begun distributing drugs again. After the interview she talks to Clark about what happened with the trial and wants him to know that she is not the person that he thinks she is. The drugs found at McClintock's apartment were high end steroids. From the AA victim's diary, a name of Roger is discovered as someone worth talking to, as his record shows a history of domestic violence. Sipowicz and Medavoy leave to bring him in; meanwhile Jones and Clark have gone to a health club, where they talk to a competitive bodybuilder about the phone call he had recently had with McClintock. The bodybuilder quietly confesses to them about his need for steroids, but doesn't give the detectives any reason to think he was responsible for McClintock's murder. Sipowicz and Medavoy interview Roger Harborn; he wasn't with their victim, but has a hard time coming up with a solid alibi for his whereabouts last night. Sipowicz knows it was because he was drinking last night. Munson asks Clark to lunch and he tells her that he can't as he is tied up with the McClintock case. He tells her what they know so far and the fact that he has already talked to Carly Landis, whom Munson reminds him proved to be untrustworthy. They agree to do lunch on another day. Jones tells Clark about the call he just got from Narcotics, they've caught a guy, Nathan Creek, who had a couple hundred doses of the steroid found in McClintock's apartment. Clark and Jones go to interview Creek, who admits to having stabbed McClintock when he attacked him; McClintock wasn't supposed to be there according to his accomplice in the crime, Carly Landis. Carly Landis is brought back for a reinterview. She denies have anything to do with Creek and she has a solid alibi for the morning. They run what they got by Munson to see if they can hold Carly Landis for a while, but she wants them to come up with more solid evidence before they waste anymore of her time. Roger Harborn still hasn't come up with any client names, but he recounts to Sipowicz and Medavoy the story of what he did do with their victim yesterday. When he had started drinking at a restaurant, she had left him. He doesn't remember much after that, as doesn't remember anything until the state trooper woke him up this morning. Medavoy receives a gift from Brigid Scofield. Clark runs the state of their case for Bale, telling him that they are still trying to get evidence that proves that Carly Landis setup the break-in by Nathan Creek. As for the other case, despite Harborn's alibi starting to prove out Bale wants Harborn held, since they have no better suspect in hand. Jones and Clark interview another man who had placed a call to McClintock. He also brings up the name of Carly Landis. She had him arrange a meeting for this morning with McClintock, which would insure McClintock was there when Nathan Creek broke into the apartment. Back at the squad, the detectives are reviewing a tape of the people going into and out of one of the AA meetings. Ortiz recognizes the man who asked her out to breakfast that morning. Sipowicz brings Harborn in to look at the tape and he recognizes the man, whose name he says is Justin. He also tells them that he had seen Justin talking with their victim. Carly Landis is presented the evidence they've found and she admits to having set McClintock up. The taskforce strategize what they are going to do when and if Justin makes an appearance at one of tonight's meetings. They intend on luring him to a phony apartment, where they are going to apprehend him. At a meeting attended by Murphy and Medavoy, Justin makes his appearance. At the meeting, Murphy lays out her story for the group and after the meeting Justin approaches her. They begin talking and Justin talks her into considering trying to take just a little drink. She takes him back to the apartment and Justin tells her a story about his mother and he tells her that he is going to get rid of her, just like he did the others and he makes his move. Murphy makes her move right back and quickly subdues him. The detectives take him into custody. Back at the squad, Munson comes in and apologizes to Clark for her behavior earlier that day when she accused him and Jones of wasting her time. They agree to have dinner on Friday night. Sipowicz reports to Bale that Justin Deroos admitted to the four homicides and Bale tells him that he has heard the results of the sergeant's exam, Sipowicz's has passed. Bale asks him if he is ready to be a boss.moreless
