Episode Summary

EDIT
John and the good doctor have renewed their intimate relationship, but something is wrong; her medication isn't letting her feel anything. She decides that for his benefit they need to end their relationship. The detectives are on the scene of a homicide that looks like a mob hit. The building superintendent (a poet) has a lot of detail for the detectives, including the license plate number of the vehicle driven by Russians. Following up, Sipowicz and Clark go to the address where the car was registered. They find a man, Ilya Antropov, knocking on a nearby door and determine that the door they were at was the door he was really intending on knocking on. They bring him in for questioning and decide to hold him in a cell until they can check out his story about being a busboy. McDowell is planning to go to the doctor for her first ultra-sound. Sipowicz and Clark go to talk the woman, a renowned photographer that their victim worked for. The photographer recently had taken photos of convicts and perhaps one of them may have done her a favor. She decides they need to talk to her attorney. Ilya Antropov story checks out and he can be let go. A man, Brad Cutshall, comes up into the squad room; he wants to file a report regarding constant break-ins to his car. McDowell gets ready to take his statement and he handcuffs himself to her. He tells everyone that he is wired with a bomb. The people who attached the bomb to him (and are holding his daughter) are demanding the release of Ilya Antropov. With the bomb up in the Squad room the precinct is full of activity in the lobby. Sipowicz and Clark go and talk with Antropov and he denies knowing anything about Cutshall. He does tell them that back in Russia he was once leader of a loyal group of rebels, but that group is now scattered and he doesn't know how to contact them. McDowell starts talking with Cutshall and manages to get him to give her is cell phone number. Cutshall's phone rings and they now have one hour to let Antropov go or the bomb will be detonated. Clark remembers that Antropov said something in Russian to an old man when they were leaving that building. They decide they need to bring that man in for questioning. Back at their original crime scene, Medavoy and Ortiz do some follow-up questioning and find out a tenant that had a dead cat nailed to her door. They talk with Katie Driscoll and find out that her father had been living with her for the last few weeks. They ask her to contact her dad. Meanwhile back at the squad, McDowell talks with Cutshall trying to gather further information. Sipowicz asks Rodriguez why they can't just let Antropov go, they were going to do it this morning anyway. Rodriguez tells him the brass doesn't want to negotiate. They find out that Cutshall has gambling debts. Perhaps he owes money to the Russians? Cutshall says no. The old man that Antropov talked to earlier that morning is brought in and he eventually tells the detectives that Antropov is someone he is more afraid of than the police. Sipowicz and Clark go back to Antropov's cell and Sipowicz tries to "convince" him to call off this bomb. Katie Driscoll brings her dad to the precinct where he doesn't recognize a photo of Antropov. They decide to keep pursuing every possible lead. A dumpster blows up outside the precinct. Sipowicz goes upstairs and McDowell insists that he go back downstairs. Cutshall gets another call on his cell phone that says that the next bomb is theirs. The FBI arrives, but they have nothing on Antropov. A background check of Katie Driscoll's father reveals that he has a record for crack possession. Clark goes to see Driscoll and gets him to confess the name of his Russian dealer, where he works out of and that he is in debt to the Russians for $50,000. The pieces begin to fall together; Antropov is really a big hitter that came to US under an assumed named. Sipowicz decides on a plan of action. He needs to get Cutshall's phone so that Antropov can make the call he needs to make. Sipowicz has brought Antropov's son to the cell. Sipowicz threatens that he will bring Antropov's son upstairs and cuff him to the bomb. Antropov calls the bomb off and after it has been removed from Cutshall everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Cutshall is reunited with his daughter and everyone can go home for the evening. At the Sipowicz home, Theo only concern for the day is that he needs to get a new baseball mitt and shoes. A short while later Connie breaks down when the impact of the day's events finally hit her.moreless
