Episode Summary

The squad investigates the "Letterhead Beatings" in which several people have been assaulted, tied to their beds, and the first letter of their last names is carved into their foreheads. Palermo is certain there is a message here, but his inability to solve it in time to prevent further victims compounds his burn-out. When the letters add up to spell A-L-E-R-M-O, the solution appears. Palermo realizes the attacks are personal. Chris and T.C. discover she's pregnant. T.C. proposes marriage, but Chris refuses to "get married at the end of a shotgun." Each fantasizes about impending parenthood, but just as they're settling into the idea, they learn that Chris is not pregnant after all. Palermo hosts the daughter of his high school sweetheart, a young aspiring actress. A night of dinner and wine lead to lovemaking... and serious morning-after regrets from Palermo, who is already suffering from a mid-life crisis. This and the Letterhead Beatings make him question his current path in life. At the end of the episode, he takes a two-month leave of absence to go to Italy and deal with his mid-life crisis. Cory is devastated when her boyfriend Tim Stone suddenly elopes with his ex-girlfriend. She hooks up with Doug Fraser, a nice guy she punches out in a bar, and sleeps with him on the first date. Realizing her behavior is totally out of character, Cory assumes the relationship is doomed to failure, but her chemistry with Doug is too strong to ignore -- as much as she tries to. Fearing that Internal Affairs is about to fire him, Victor ponders early retirement from the force.moreless
