Episode Summary

EDIT
Can I Get A Witness?
AIRED:
Despite family opposition, Mike's cousin Brendan wants to join the police force. Elizabeth announces that she wants to have a big wedding, after all -- at the Plaza Hotel. Mike's working-class ethics make him uncomfortable with the idea. Zane tells his Nana that he plans to re-open his father's case once more. Mike and Zane take a call about an apparent hate crime at a Jewish-owned store, but it turns out that the son of the storeowner was responsible. At court with the son, Zane meets up with a defense attorney and interests her in his father's case. Captain Schmidt tells Mike not to let things "get complicated" when he appears before IAB on Chris Livingston's complaint against Brad Ulrich. Ulrich pressures Mike to cover for him. Livingston is upset about Mike's talk with Schmidt and urges him to do the right thing at the hearing. The Jamal Jones protesters get wind of the Livingston situation and are outraged when Ulrich gets another slap on the wrist. Mike spots Beatrice on the street with her new boyfriend, Rick Jensen. Rick calls Zane a "pig moron" and a fight, in front of witnesses, ensues. Zane borrows Elizabeth's make-up to hide the damage from the Captain, but Jenson presses charges, landing Zane on a desk pending an IAB hearing. When Elizabeth works late, Mike and Zane finish a bottle of Wild Turkey and talk about Mike's reservations over Elizabeth's money and his own ambitions. Elizabeth and Mike fight over the wedding when he shows up drunk at the hospital, but end up agreeing to go ahead with the extravaganza at the Plaza. (UPN)moreless
