Episode Summary

EDIT
Waking Up is Hard to Do
AIRED:
It's the morning after and Danny and Diane talk about not talking about it at work. Gee, hasn't Diane been here before? The results of Theo's blood test are positive, they're not perfect but it is enough to put Andy in an unnaturally good mood. Andy and Danny catch a homicide involving a cab driver, part of wave of attacks on cab drivers. Since their shooting resulted in a homicide, Bass creates a task force and takes over Fancy's office. DiSalvo reaches out to Russell from Rikers and Sipowicz reminds that he was the guy that jammed Bobby up with IAB. Danny follows up at Rikers and the meeting with Denby. Andy, Baldwin and Diane follow leads in the cab shootings. DiSalvo offers Danny a hit on Don Kirkendall, and Denby provides a lead on the whereabouts of Lauren. A lead in the cab shootings results in a stakeout, which leads to the capture of a suspect. Diane finds Lauren, but she has little memory of the incident, but she will be glad to say whatever they want. Without her as a witness, the detectives need to some other proof. Danny goes home to a planned rendezvous with Mary, but it is cut short when DiSalvo calls Sorenson back to Rikers; Don Kirkendall is dead; knowing about the hit in advance DiSalvo was just trying to cash in. With no Kirkendall, IAB's case against the squad is closed. Hmmm, no loose ends, expect for the pending Danny and Mary breakup over Diane.moreless
