After his interview, he begins to help Andy and Diane with their investigation of a homicide. The victim's psychiatrist thinks the father is the one they should be looking at. They think differently. A man from a magazine that wrote a bad story on the cops in New York, needs their help when his mugged trying to help someone in trouble. Greg and James help him out.

Shannon about Andy's presence. Jill works her source, Leo Cohen, to try and get information out about the pending indictments against Andy and Bobby. The FBI tells Bobby he is on his own. They had other plans for Lt. Shannon, after Andy had given his testimony. When the squad is called to a scene, where the suspect in Andy's case is holed-up, a shot is fired in Andy's direction. Shannon is identified as the shooter. The whole mess gets unraveled; it is revealed that the 15th squ
Things are back to "normal" at the squad when Bobby returns to work. Gina still hasn't officially announced anything; however, after thinking it over she accepts James' proposal for marriage.

A young woman's charred body, complete with a bullet wound, is found in an abandoned vehicle; Bobby, Diane and Andy investigate. They miss a chance at getting their prime suspect when the night watch falls asleep while on their stakeout of the suspect's home. When he is apprehended, the suspect claims it was an "accident."
Andy and Bobby investigate the murder of man where the only witness is woman who's a little off the deep end. Meanwhile, Andy also contemplates the meaning of "Pop Goes the Weasel."

The life of Andy and Bobby's witness is in jeopardy when their suspect's lawyer has her kidnapped. When they get some incriminating evidence on the lawyer, Cohen uses his influence to help find the location of the woman. When Cohen wants to keep his word to the incriminated lawyer, it doesn't sit well with Andy; however, Jill supports him. Naomi obtains some library research for Andy's quest

Diane reports to Bobby that she is 4 days late.
A young boy is reported missing by his parents. Simone and Sipowicz agree to look for the young boy, when the father tells them it may have been his fault for letting him talk to a homeless man. Instincts tell Andy that the father is guilty. They locate the homeless man, named Israel; however, communication is difficult because he is a mute. Unfortunately, the boy's body is found and the detectives now must determine if Israel is responsible or perhaps the boy's father. Andy may have tipped his hand to the boy's father that he likes him for the murder. So for a while Andy bows out of the case and Diane steps in. Meanwhile, a Hasidic Jewish girl is murdered and the other detectives have to juggle the need for their investigation against the needs of her faith for a quick burial. Israel is brought in for further "questioning" to let father think suspicion has been removed from him. The father watches the interrogation of Israel with interest. The father has set-up all the evidence to poi
Andy begins to make sense of the Bible passage that Israel pointed out to him; only to discover that Israel has hung himself. The detectives aren't sure how to proceed with the parents now that Israel is dead; Fancy is out of the office because his daughter Jennifer has had an appendicitis. The detectives decide to let the parents know about Israel's death, but lead the parents to believe they have a witness that saw the father plant the shirt in Israel's "home." Diane begins to reach the mother. Bobby senses the father is jealous of all the attention. The detectives decide to lie low and wait for the father to make a move. It doesn't take long and the father contacts Bobby, who tries to connect with him like Diane is doing with the mother. Emotions run high until a confession is finally delivered. Meanwhile, the other detectives find a doctor who is helping out the homeless by getting them a job with insurance benefits that he helps them collect.

An old friend from his school days stops by to ask Andy to talk to his daughter about the company she is keeping. The daughter is living with a woman who's looking to eventually change her sex, but that isn't the issue, it's her boyfriend is an unstable element. So unstable, that despite Andy's visit the next morning the daughter's roommate is murdered. Another of Andy's old schoolmates might be the key to unraveling the mystery. Also for some unexplained reason, Sipowicz seems unusually agitated with Fancy.

Sipowicz returns to active duty, but perhaps a bit too soon as his system hasn't quite adjusted and he has an accident when later interrogating a suspect. He begins to work a case with Russell and Simone, investigating the murder of a woman's boyfriend by her ex-husband. Before the investigation gets going, Simone is called upon by Det. Savino to help investigate a missing persons report that is being filed by the nephew of one his building's tenants. The missing woman had run-ins in the past with Simone's partner and building manager, Henry Coffield, so he is suspected and the other tenants support that theory.

One body belongs to a car salesman and the other to a prostitute. Simone and Sipowicz look into the car salesman's death. The other detectives look into the prostitute's death. While Andy seems to be fully recovered from his surgery, the results of a recent blood test are not entirely favorable and he is nervous about telling Sylvia. The MO of the suspected perp in the prostitute's murder is to buy used condoms from a prostitute and then mix the spent semen with his own to cover his crime. However, Medavoy gets tough and is clever with the perp during the interview. Meanwhile, the uniforms bring a man into Simone and Sipowicz. They can tie the man to their victim, but are convinced that the man's honest account of the event leading to the shooting is true. Realizing that the man wasn't capable

Greg calls upon the blonde. Andy gets his prescription filled and is able to t
Bobby dreams and later he visits his dentist. Besides the checkup, the dentist asks him to check on his daughter, whose boyfriend deals and uses drugs. However, Simone also seems to be showing signs of a health problem that he thinks is a chest cold, as he joins the other detectives at a crime scene, where they are beginning to investigate a stabbing death. The victim's father, who shows up at the scene with Mike Roberts as a bodyguard, asks the detectives to "make it right." Russell and Kirkendall get redirected to check into a possible rape case, but it turns out to be a false alarm.

The detectives arrive on the scene of a shooting, where the shooter is Det. Walsh, from the 27, who was having a late night out with a few drinks and hooker. Simone arrives on the scene, but his difficulty breathing causes his so much discomfort, he is taken to the hospital. It appears as though Bobby has some heart trouble, its enlarged, cause unknown. Later, back at the squad room, Sipowicz begins questioning alcoholic Det. Walsh. Walsh's lieutenant arrives, ready to crucify him, Fancy steps in and ask him wait until their investigation is over. The investigation concludes and the detective's actions are vindicated, although Andy offers him some advice about his drinking. Bobby's condition may be caused by an infection; however, more tests are needed to know for sure.
Bobby isn't doing much better the following morning; the doctor recommends they do the test he recommended, earlier than planned. When Andy hears about these tests it puts him on edge and makes him more difficult to work with than usual. While Jill waits with Diane, the other detectives investigate the death of a man who was murdered in the park. The tests reveal that Bobby's heart is damaged; the only long-term option is a heart transplant. Meanwhile, back on the case, the detectives interview a suspect who initially gives them misleading information because she is trying to protect herself from the actual perpetrator, a man with ties to the mob.
The word goes out to the uniforms to look out for any possible donors for a heart for Simone. Sipowicz, Medavoy and Martinez investigate the homicide of an elderly woman whose hands and feet were cut off of her body. Bobby is transferred over to the surgical staff, where his new doctor recommends that waiting for the heart transplant is his best option. The woman's two sons are probable suspects, one son, Arnold Struel, shows no remorse over her death, the other, Stanley an alcoholic junkie, who didn't like her, at least shows some compassion. Sipowicz finally gets Arnold to give it up. Later, when he returns to the interview room, he sees that Arnold is hanging himself. He debates about waiting until he is dead, to provide a donor for Bobby, but circumstances (Medavoy) prevent him from waiting. By chance, an off-duty cop is shot in the head and for all practical purposes is dead; Fancy makes a pleas with the widow, for a directed donation. Eventually she consents and Bobby is prepped

Bobby takes a turn for the worse and the entire squad is put on edge. Diane insists on seeing Dr. Carreras. He lays the hard news on Diane; it would be better overall for Bobby is he was kept from suffering any further. Dr. Carreras and Dr. Swan have differing opinions on the prognosis for Bobby's future. Carreras feels that Swan wants Bobby's inevitable condition to be on another department's record. Andy gets Katie to agree to begin attending meetings, as a way meet the terms of her.

Sorenson catches his first case, a drive-by shooting, which then gets mixed in with the case Russell has caught, the shooting death of the drive-by shooters. Russell is annoyed when Sorenson takes over both cases. Sylvia stops by the squad to ask Andy's help in checking out whether a man, Suarez, who was put into prison may have really been innocent. So he tries to reach out to cop who made that arrest, but Dornan has a better memory of the way he's seen Sipowicz act in the past.
An elderly couple that Sorenson is familiar with is brutally attacked and the woman dies. Dolores hasn't shown up for work, so John Irvin fills in as the PAA. There is a homicide at a strip club and Russell and Kirkendall catch the case. When trying to round up their witnesses for interviews, they discover a familiar face, Dolores, who isn't implicated in the case. Their other interviews lead to the identification and capture of a suspect (a client) who readily confesses to the female detectives. Meanwhile, Sorenson and Sipowicz begin their investigation, which leads to the interview of a suspect, where Sorenson shows Sipowicz some of what he's got in the interview room. Sorenson regrets his action. Later in the day, Sgt. Dornan returns to the squad to talk with Sipowicz about the Suarez case. He now believes the case should be reopened. When Andy gets home to tell Sylvia, she tells him it has become a moot point, Suarez was just murdered in the laundry room at Rikers. Danny and his gi
The cop that stopped Fancy for a broken taillight a couple of years ago is involved in the shooting of a black undercover officer. Tensions rise between Sipowicz and Fancy when the black and white issue comes up and later Fancy interviews Szymanski. Sipowicz and Sorenson's evidence from their interviews, points to the fact that Szymanski's story is good. Sipowicz tells Fancy that he can't jam up Szymanski for this. The tension in the squad rises so high, that Fancy and Sipowicz come to blows with each other. Shannon stops Russell and Kirkendall to tell them that Dolores was caught shoplifting. They reach out to help her and then try talking with her; however, Dolores only seems interested in knowing whether she still has a job. Sylvia returns home, disheartened by the Suarez story; Andy offers to help her get him justice.

Meanwhile, Medavoy and Martinez investigate a homicide where an informant on an old case may be the key suspect. Dolores implores John to help her find out her status with Fancy, she doesn't seem to want to face him or the detectives. With Sipowicz meeting with Sylvia and Dornan about the Suarez matter, Russell and Sorenson find a suspect in the stabbing. With their cases down, Russell joins Sorenson, Medavoy and Martinez after work in a bar. Sorenson expresses curiosity on whether Russell drinks or not, after she almost takes a beer that M
Diane contacts Jill for help. Greg gets an offer of free Chinese food from a shop owner who he and James helped out on a previous case. Sylvia, Andy and Sgt. Dornan meet with someone who will help them nail the man who had Suarez framed and killed. IAB and the FBI are interested in the burglary case that Sorenson and Sipowicz are working. When the Feds leave the room, IAB reveals the information they have about two retired cops who pulled the job. When the retired cops are collared, the FBI reveals their information which points to the nephews of the retired cops. Greg panics when he gets the impression that IAB is there about the free Chinese food. Sorenson talks with one his informants who he recognized from one of the robbery's surveillance tapes. With this evidence they are able to put down the case, at least as far as the FBI will let them. Sylvia, Andy and Dornan interview try to make a deal with the Suarez killer, but he won't deal, with the leukemia he has, he has nothing to lo
A woman is murder in her apartment and a woman (who only wants to talk to Sorenson) keeps pointing to the building's gigolo as the culprit. Meanwhile, Sorenson has problems of his own. He takes lost time to help his Army buddy deal with some emotional problems, but calls in Sipowicz for support when the situation gets out of hand. They get the situation under control, but later in the day Sorenson gets a message from Joey that he's leaving town.
The detectives are called to scene of a homicide of man whose body was dumped, Medavoy and Martinez take the case as Russell and Kirkendall stop to offer advice to a family whose daughter may have gone missing and Sipowicz and Sorenson are held up in traffic. John Irvin reports to Sorenson and Sipowicz that he fears Dolores is in trouble, because she's turned to hooking. He knows that she was last seen with a well to do man named Malcolm Cullinan. His attempt to help her out only gets him into trouble, starting with a visit from James Sinclair, the high profile criminal defense attorney who is representing his wealthy client and one of Sipowicz's favorite people. The family Russell and Kirkendall stopped to help, bring a suspect to the station, a man with head problems confesses to dreaming about killing the girl. A man is beaten by the brothers of the victim in Medavoy and Martinez's homicide, but this man's story leads back to the one of the brothers. Sinclair shows up set to negotia
A woman's body is discovered in a ditch and the detectives begin their investigation when Fancy calls Sipowicz and Sorenson back to the squad. Back at the squad, Dornan (who was demoted back to Detective) is there with his Lieutenant. They are looking to raid a supply of weapons that are located in the 15th precinct. The raid turns up the weapons, but no suspects. Meanwhile, the ditch victim's mother positively ID's her daughter's body, but her daughter is actually alive and knows who killed the woman who had her ID. Kirkendall and Russell suspect the mother was looking to commit fraud with an insurance company. A stakeout is begun with the weapons store, then suddenly Fancy is shot at with an automatic weapon, his vest protects most of his body, but he is grazed in the arm. For Sipowicz's sake, Sorenson finds out from IAB's Martens, why Dornan was busted, it wasn't because of the Suarez case. Russell must deal with Bobby's old tenant, Henry Coffield, Bobby left him his pigeons.
Sorenson's sister, Lori comes to town and spends the day in the city trying to hook up with him. However, he and Sipowicz are investigating the murder of a nine-year-old girl who was found murdered in the basement of the building where she lived. The building's superintendent is only interested in getting his tools back. Sipowicz and Sorenson find the tools in the possession of a tenant of the building who has his own passageway into the basement. Meanwhile, Medavoy and Martinez investigate the case of an elderly man who comes to the precinct claiming he's been embezzled by his young girlfriend through influence by a friend of hers. The detectives debate about how to tell the old man about the nature of "girl" who's been giving him great pleasure. Dolores Mayo's long estranged father comes looking to visit her, Diane and Jill give him the news of her death.
Sipowicz is having a recurring dream involving his father and Sgt. Dornan. In the dream Sipowicz's father claims that Dornan was responsible for putting his eye out. One of Sorenson's informants helps the detectives with their investigation into the shooting death of a drug dealer by a police officer. The officer might just not be cut out for police work, but the shooting is proved right. Vince Gotelli comes to the squad looking for help with one of his insurance company's chronic complainants, a man with mob connections. The complainant alleges that his downstairs neighbor is constantly vandalizing his car; Vince wants the detectives (Sorenson and Kirkendall) to tell him his options. None of their advice is heeded as the complainant is beaten to death by his neighbor. Sipowicz meets with Dornan to tell him what he thinks his dream meant. Dornan, who's been drinking during the time before Sipowicz arrived, doesn't offer him any support, which sends Sipowicz running from the bar, intent
Sorenson's girlfriend Nadine comes by to give him some news about the lateness of her period, but she feels that he doesn't seem to be ready for this, when he can't remember her last name. The situation puts Sorenson out of sorts for the shift and the squad's curiosity raised as they try to figure out what is going on, keeping them all from focusing on their case of a body found in dumpster. The victim is ID'd and a dim-witted man, Ted, who the detectives pick up, used his credit card. After interrogation, Ted points to the man who gave him the card as the one who had him move the dumpster. Later that evening Danny lets Nadine know that he will take care of his responsibility. The detectives try wiring Ted, to get a confession out of his boss. When the wire doesn't work the first time, Sipowicz poses as his brother. Nadine stops by to tell Danny about the results of her doctor's test, negative.
Sipowicz and Sorenson investigate the death of a woman who was killed for her valuable coin collection. Evidence points them towards her son who might be supporting his drug habit. Meanwhile, Russell and Kirkendall are investigating the robbery of a courier truck; the courier that secures the truck car is the company that Mike Roberts now works for. So Roberts comes to the squad to give them information about who probably have pulled the job. In addition he needs to talk with Sipowicz about his something that is on his conscience, but isn't able to get to the particulars that are bothering him. Robert's tip to the squad about the dispatcher, who leads them to the perpetrators whom, are going to use the same M.O. and commit another robbery. Although, the tip doesn't look good in the eyes of Roberts' boss, since Roberts had greenlighted the background check of the dispatcher. Mike Roberts warns John Irvin that rich people who've been humiliated will take their revenge. Later, John realiz
Mike Roberts is dead. His body was found on top of a car after being thrown out of the window of his office building. John Irvin approaches Sipowicz and tells him what Roberts warned him about. So the detectives begin to see if they can build a case around Cullinan, the rich man that John punched out. Medavoy looks into a book that Roberts was writing for clues. Kirkendall volunteers to become the bait for the trap they lay for and catch Cullinan in. Cohen isn't delighted with her performing this task, which she feels is just a part of her job. She tells Russell that she isn't going take the crap from him, so they are through. As the squad waits for the lawyers to work out the details of the Cullinan bust, Medavoy reads more of the notes of Mike Roberts, featuring Donna Abandando.
Katie Sipowicz seems on the road to recovery, but Dornan is in desperate need of it. Cohen brings news to the squad that they are going to need more evidence to make any case against Cullinan that will stick and his broken relationship with Kirkendall seems to be beyond repair. Meantime, Sipowicz appeals to Fancy to reach out on Dornan's behalf. James Mayo comes to the squad, it seems that John Irvin has been keeping him informed about the pending investigation into Dolores' death, and he demands that they do something or he will. Fancy lets John Irvin know where he stands in the squad and later tries to do the same for Dornan. Sorenson and Sipowicz interview the women who obtained the drugs for Roberts and she points to a Wall St. courier who is the supplier. Sorenson offers to take Kirkendall's boys to a baseball game; he'll even let her come along, even though he really still has an eye for Russell. Cohen asks Russell about the possibility of making up with Kirkendall. Katie comes t
Sylvia decides that Danny would be a much better witness than Andy would in the pending trial of Cullinan. Sipowicz seems to still have unresolved issues with Sinclair that would jeopardize the case. She works with Sorenson and Kenny, the drug courier, to ready them for the trial. John Irvin tells Sipowicz that he is still in contact with Dolores' father, although he says he is not providing him with any more information pertaining to the case. Meanwhile, the other detectives investigate the death of a woman's husband. They believe she may have done it for the insurance money and her son gives them evidence that coaberating evidence. Although the woman and another person they interview during their investigation keep reminding them about the Diallo case, something they'd all rather not be reminded about. Sinclair promises Sipowicz that he will get him on the stand, even if the DA won't let him. Sipowicz tells Sorenson that he will be taking the stand. Sylvia disagrees with him, but whe
Andy prepares for his confrontation with Sinclair. John Irvin meets with Jimmy Mayo, but Mayo seems focused elsewhere. Officer Shannon brings a 13-year-old boy to the attention of Sorenson; Shannon (and later Sorenson) feels the boy is upset about something that he won't talk about. When he does tell his story, what he reveals disturbs Sorenson. Sorenson is so worked up; Fancy calls Medavoy and Martinez in early to accompany him in his questioning of the suspected pervert. The pervert freely confesses to his crime, and the detectives try to locate a relative for the boy, to keep him out of the system. At an awkward moment, Danny kisses Diane on the lips. Meanwhile, the hearing has begun, Kirkendall testifies, evidence is admitted (subject to connection) and Jimmy Mayo arrives in court just in time for a recess. Next on the stand is Kenny, the drug courier. During another recess, Sylvia gives Andy some words of encouragement. Then he takes the stand and Andy holds his own, with just a l
As a result of her injuries, Sylvia has died. The squad worries about Andy's state, will he start drinking again. Andy is staying in his apartment, only making sure that Theo makes it to and from school. He is only accepting a minimal amount of help from his ex-wife Katie. Medavoy and Martinez interview a man who claims that he was hired to murder Kenny Priest at the Cullinan trial. He points to his sister, Lurleen as the one who set him up with the job; she also had something to do with Cullinan's murder of Mike Roberts. Sorenson goes to seek Sipowicz's help, when they get Cullinan to drop his high priced attorney. John Irvin is hard on himself and feels that he can never face Andy again. Danny gets Andy to help with the interview of Cullinan and the very subdued interview gets Cullinan to crack. John Irvin and Andy silently pass each other on the stairwell. A few moments later, Andy reappears and assures John he doesn't hold him responsible for Sylvia's death. Andy debates about how
The 15th precinct "reopens for business" a little later than anticipated this season, but Sipowicz took advantage of the extra time to grieve Sylvia, raise Theo and lose some weight. Yes, Andy has shed a few pounds. Sipowicz and Sorenson begin an investigation into the death of man who was beaten to death by a pair of cops. One of the cops, Sorenson had helped out in last season's case involving the shooting of a black police officer. Medavoy gets a dirty uniform working a parade detail. Jill seeks Diane's opinion about restarting a relationship (for the sixth time) with her ex-husband Don, who's been real helpful lately, as their son Kyle gets ready for his first communion. Sipowicz, Sorenson and Franco with some reluctant help from Laughlin uncover the truth about the beating. Which officer performed the beating death, will be left for the jury to decide. Sipowicz goes home to Theo and later that night at the bar, Sorenson wants to discuss the outcome of their investigation with Laug
Kyle Kirkendall receives his first communion and just outside the church, Sipowicz and Sorenson spot a surveillance van. At the squad Danny talks with Mary Franco who is about to see the captain about her possibly being transferred to the anti-crime unit. Sipowicz is informed that the surveillance team is watching Don Kirkendall who's been delivering packages from Peru. He tells Diane who feels compelled to tell Jill, who isn't receptive to the information and feels that Diane has that "I told you so" air about her. Sipowicz and Sorenson help a probation officer get one of his clients to give himself some protection against some his former running buddies who've harassed him. It looks bad for him when later that morning one of his old buddies is found dead and he is convinced that he is going to be convicted of the crime. A woman at the scene of the crime later comes to the squad in a search of a reward for her information. Meanwhile, Russell and Kirkendall reluctantly work together to
Danny and Mary spend the night together. Andy seeks advice from Katie about some trouble he is having with Theo. She tries to give him some advice, but he misses her point. Sipowicz, Sorenson and Medavoy look into the murder of a man who assailant fled the scene wearing two right shoes. There is also a question of theft at the crime scene, when it is discovered that the jewelry the victim was wearing disappears just after the fire department has left the crime scene. Meanwhile, Russell, Kirkendall and Martinez investigate a mother's concerns that her son has become a thief. In reality he is receiving gifts from a teacher who claims she is looking out for his interests, or rather is it just her interest in him?
Sipowicz, Sorenson, Russell and Kirkendall begin investigating a homicide where the bodies of seven naked men are found. Medavoy and Martinez investigate a victim whose body might have been dumped near a sweatshop, but Greg is more interested in the female paramedic on the scene. Sipowicz and Sorenson get assistance from a department profiler that Sipowicz doesn't like and Morrison from the Organized Crime Bureau. After returning from a canvas, Jill gets a message that her ex-husband Don has been arrested. She goes to see him and he plans to use her giving the heads up to help save his ass. Never mind that that her losing her job will affect the kids. When she returns, Fancy finds out about her indiscretion and works to save her job. Meanwhile, Sipowicz and Sorenson work with Morrison to sit on a suspect that Morrison likes for the crime, which doesn't pan out, but a cab driver who picked up some suspicious characters comes forward. Later, Mary makes dinner for Danny.
Jill seeks advice from Diane about her current situation with Don. The detectives investigate the death of a man who was shot in front of his wife and the victim's brother, Joaquin is happy to help the detectives know about his brother's background. Martinez tells Medavoy that he's passed the sergeant's exam and since he scored well he expects to get the promotion. Preston Ross (from Latent Prints) is impressed enough with his work in getting prints off the gun used in the murder, so much so, that he delivers the results in person, much to Andy's delight. Medavoy allows Martinez's pending promotion to distract him. An officer from narcotics questions Russell in an attempt to get information that will help them with their case against Don Kirkendall. Mary Franco comes downstairs from anti-crime, causing Sorenson to become a little flustered evidently she got her promotion. After talking with Jill, Diane agrees to meet with Denby to get a better feeling for him. During her meeting with h
Martinez arrives at the squad for his last day. Diane tells Jill the results of her conversation with Denby. Sorenson and Sipowicz look into a murder, where the gun used was involved in a shooting 2 years earlier. With help from the gun owner's mother, they get the gun and the name of the party who last had the gun. That party points to the gun owner's brother as the one who really wanted the gun to accompany him on a visit to his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend. Denby tells Russell that Don Kirkendall escaped from his supervision last night (after his night of drinking with Russell) and if Don contacts Jill, Russell should let him know, so he can save his own ass. Jill gives into Don's continual calls and asks Diane for the use of her apartment, knowing that her own apartment is probably under surveillance by Denby. Jill gives Don some money and tells him to leave, but before he goes he swipes Bobby's wedding ring from the mantel. The squad gathers to celebrate the promotion of James Martin
An off-duty cop is found dead. Diane has yet to tell Jill about Don's fate. Det. Baldwin Jones (formerly of the Bias unit and who prefers to be called "D") reports to his new assignment at the 15 Squad. Sorenson's street contact "J.B." tries to bring them information for their case but Danny isn't buying. The dead cop's partner comes in for questioning and Sipowicz's style gets her to reveal that she had a relationship with her partner, which doesn't lead to anything. All the while the new guy and the other detectives canvas the neighborhood and find someone who can point out a probable suspect for the shooting. Fancy tries to find out why Jones was transferred into his unit, without any notice and it turns out it was just someone wanting to remind him about the fact that Fancy still lets Sipowicz do his job. Russell talks with Sipowicz about what she should do with the information that she knows and he suggests that she should tell; otherwise it would destroy their partnership. Meanwh
Danny wakes up after having a dream about his sisters being in a fire with his mother who doesn't do anything to help save his sisters. He becomes angry with Mary. Kirkendall and Russell investigate the death of a woman who was thrown out of a van under the wheels of a bus. The contents of her body were removed before she was pushed under the bus, because one of the hazards of her occupation as a drug mule killed her. Her boyfriend's complaints of the stomach flu make it seem as though he might know more than what he is letting on. Eventually the contents of his digestive system and his story make themselves present. Meanwhile, Jones catches his first case. He and the other detectives investigate the disappearance of a Russian couple's two children. The husband is convinced that the boys are with his sister; however, his wife doesn't share that conviction. The husband also hears voices in his head, which eventually say enough that the detectives figure out that he knows where the boys
An old friend of Andy's stops by to ask Andy if he would take his niece out on a date. Andy asks for a couple of hours to make a decision, seek advice and find a babysitter if one is needed. Meanwhile the detectives are sent out to investigate a homicide where the victim is a little ripe. Fancy asks Jones to call his old boss at the Bias unit, when the crime looks as though it might have been gang related. Andy asks Danny if he thinks it would be all right if he went out on a date. Danny encourages him to give it a try. Abner and Fancy have words and Jones isn't sure what to make of the situation. The investigation concludes when the mother gives up her son as their suspect and Jones conducts the interview (with Abner watching). Andy goes on his date as Katie watches Theo. The date goes well, but when Andy returns Katie lets her feelings be known; that is that she wished he had dated her.
Danny has another bad dream about his sisters and Mary witnesses his plea for relief. He goes out for an early morning walk, but loses track of time. Sipowicz is called to the scene where an 8-year-old girl's skeletal remains are found. A dog's nose contains a bullet that might be the key to Medavoy's case; only the dog's owner won't authorize the surgery that would remove the bullet. Sorenson arrives to work late but Sipowicz covers for him. They go to the house of retired detective that handled the missing girl's case. Only the old detective brain is a little scrambled and he isn't keen on letting Sipowicz and Sorenson handle his case file, without him being there. Jones comes up with a solution to the problem they have when the dog owner can't identify the man who shot her dog. A canceled check in the case file and a tenant list, lead Sipowicz and Sorenson to suspect's for girl's murder, meanwhile the senile old detective has wandered of and got lost. Sorenson goes off on the suspec
Fancy meets Abner, who wants to say his goodbyes and wants that same message conveyed to Jones. Sipowicz and Sorenson (with Medavoy and Jones) investigate the murder of a nightclub owner's partner. The nightclub owner, Dave Lorenz and one of the bartenders believes that his partner may have been the victim of a hit ordered from inside prison, since the partner was known to be sticking it to a mob informant's former girlfriend. Russell and Kirkendall work with a woman (Shanice) who claims that her boyfriend raped her. Fancy believes there might be something more to Abner's message, so he passes the message along to Jones and asks that Jones give Abner a call in return. When Abner doesn't answer any phone calls, Fancy takes some lost time to go to Abner's apartment and finds Abner dead in his bathtub from a gunshot to the head. Shanice's boyfriend is brought in, but will not talk with female detectives, he requests a brother detective. So Jones conducts an interview and the boyfriend pre
Sorenson, Sipowicz and Medavoy with help from John Irvin, investigate the disappearance of a gay man (with evidence of foul play), whose nephew indicates that his uncle's former lover might be their man. The lover is brought in for questioning, but their questioning reveals that the lover's new roommate might be someone worth questioning as he's referred to the victim as "Satan incarnate." Meanwhile, Russell, Kirkendall and Jones help the meek victim of a gang rape. The victim at least had the presence of mind to keep track of where the gang took her to be raped, despite the fact they wouldn't let her see where they were taking her. Retracing her steps leads the detectives to the apartment where the raped occurred and to "the fifth man in," which will eventually lead them to the other four.
Sorenson and Sipowicz start looking into the disappearance of snooty art dealer, Noel Beller's collection. Medavoy and Jones interview a man who's reporting his wife as missing. During their interview with him, the man never looks them in the eye. A woman, Nikki Cameron, who's trying to write her first article for an art magazine about Beller, returns to the squad to give the detectives additional information about the art dealer's cousin, who had a set of keys and has returned to New York. There also is a hint of mutual interest between Nikki and Danny. A man comes in with information about the missing woman, causing Medavoy and Jones to revisit the strange husband and confirm their suspicion that he had killed his wife. After meeting Beller and his cousin, Sorenson and Sipowicz return to Beller's apartment, where they are nearly ambushed by Nikki Cameron's accomplice who's carrying a gun. Both Nikki and her accomplice are brought into the squad and Sorenson lets her know that it will
Sipowicz and Sorenson investigate a robbery that's turned into a murder. A former traffic cop, who is now working as a security guard for the daughter of the victims, makes their investigation. Sorenson's street informant J.B. has info about the case and Sorenson is still disappointed by J.B.'s continued drug use. A wealthy woman, Kathleen Gallagher, comes to the squad to report to Medavoy and Jones that her former housekeeper has been evasive about the circumstances regarding her baby's death. With Russell and Kirkendall they interview the housekeeper who claims that she and her husband don't know where the baby is buried. The husband says that he doesn't know where the baby is and it didn't matter to him as the baby wasn't his, but rather the baby was the son of his wife's boss. J.B.'s information is good and the case is easily put down. Later, Danny takes J.B. to stay in his apartment in an attempt to help him get clean again; however, Mary, who was waiting in Danny's apartment for
Danny is disappointed and annoyed when he discovers J.B. left his apartment during the night. Later a junkie named Leslie comes into the squad to report to Sorenson that J.B.'s might be in trouble. A woman reports to Medavoy and Jones that she thinks she's bought some old dresses that are actually stolen property. Kirkendall brings in a woman named Lucy, who Laughlin from Anti-Crime recognizes as a repeat offender. According to Laughlin, Lucy's husband sends her out to do the crimes. The husband claims she is a "friggin' kleptomaniac". Sorenson arrives at the scene of a fire, only to discover a body that is J.B.'s. He returns to the squad and hopes to seek some comfort from Mary, but she gives him the realities of the situation, but he isn't prepared to listen. Meanwhile, Sipowicz is annoyed because he was taken out of rotation. Sorenson breaks down in the squad and Russell seems to be the only one who will comfort him. A woman comes to the squad to claim the stolen property that Jones
Andy tells Katie that he doesn't know how to handle Danny, who told him that last night he was planning to get a load on. Katie tells Andy about how Danny reminds her of Andy Jr. and they both discuss the fact that they have seen visions of Andy Jr. Danny wakes up in Diane's apartment after his night of drinking. An old friend of Medavoy's, Charlie Sung stops by hoping that Medavoy can help him out with a problem; but Medavoy can't help him without more to go on. A young interracial couple comes in to report that they've found his parents murdered. Sipowicz looks toward their son as their most likely suspect. Jones interviews the suspect's girlfriend and makes a connection with her that they might be able to exploit against her boyfriend. Sipowicz is still distracted with his concerns about Sorenson's recent behavior and lets it get in the way, until they finally discuss it. That aside, Jones brings the girl over to their side and Sipowicz brings the suspect down. When Sung brings him
A body is found in a barrel in the basement of a home that was formerly owned by mobster, Pete Mangrini. Medavoy and Jones begin a stakeout of Mangrini's current home, but they encounter a female reporter, Nicole Graf, who's following the same lead as the detectives. When Jones tries to persuade the woman to leave, he winds up accompanying her while they tail Mangrini to a restaurant. While at the restaurant Jones confronts Mangrini who's been abusing his wife; meanwhile Medavoy gets into an accident with Jones' Blazer. Sipowicz and Sorenson arranged to get Dino "The Rat" Ferrara back to the squad to build a case against Mangrini. Dr. Kroft, the medical examiner, whose wife is dying of cancer, seems to have an issue with Sipowicz's ability to have moved on past his wife's death. Ferrara is questioned, but doesn't reveal anything useful. Then Ferrara and Mangrini meet in the hallway and exchange a few choice words. The body is finally identified, but it is not Magrini's missing wife, bu
A woman reports to Russell and Kirkendall that her twin sister is missing and the body is found in the trunk of a car an hour later. The car only reveals one fingerprint, that of Marcus Potter. Sipowicz, Sorenson, Medavoy and Jones meet Anthony a boy-looking man who lives across the hall who has a few opinions for the detectives regarding their investigation into the murder of a man's wife. The woman's son comes into the squad and establishes his alibi with Fancy. The son was at a convention for the vitamin company that Fancy's wife was working for a few years ago and Sipowicz still has an issue with why Fancy wouldn't sell him any of those vitamins. Meanwhile, the husband and his cousin are brought in for questioning and Sipowicz doubts the husband is really Italian. Russell and Kirkendall get Marcus Potter brought in so they can question him about the body in the trunk. With help from Medavoy and Jones, Potter reveals what he knows about the trunk. Sipowicz and Sorenson eventually ge
The reporter that Jones gave the story about Magrini's dead wife 2 weeks earlier, Nicole, approaches him about the possibility of the two of them getting together for sex. He'd rather try the possibility of dinner first. A retired English cop, Jimmy Cheatham, comes to the Squad with information about a possible suspect that might help with the homicide case that they are working. Since Simpkins from the 25th precinct wasn't listen He takes Sipowicz into confidence that he is suffering with a condition that might be related to jet lag. Russell and Kirkendall question the employer of the suspect and get him to let them put his mortuary under the surveillance. Meanwhile, Jimmy Cheatham's ex-partner who's on vacation in NYC arrives to offer her assistance. The surveillance begins and ends the following evening with the suspect being taken into custody. Since Jones wasn't able to meet Nicole for dinner, he asks for another chance, which she gives him; however, when dinner ends they get busy
A man comes into the squad reporting that his wife's houseguest might be responsible for a series of gas station robberies where the perp cuts the attendants, even after they give him the money. A gas station attendant positively IDs the houseguest and the man's wife as being guilty of the robbery; Sorenson and Sipowicz only have to bring them in for a little questioning and put them away. Russell spots Denby across the street and she believes he is talking with Don Kirkendall. She takes Sipowicz into her confidence, while she waits to see if Denby reaches out to her. An elderly man believes he may be being duped and Russell and Kirkendall investigate. They believe the man is being duped by a band of gypsies that they plan on catching using video surveillance, which they later do with help from Medavoy's "anchor takedown". Meanwhile, Denby reaches out and Russell asks Jones to do her a solid, by following Denby, to see if he meets a man who resembles a photo she's given to Jones. A pho
Andy takes Theo to the doctor to get a something Andy noticed about the color of Theo's mouth checked out. Jill meets with Don, so she's known all along. She asks him if someone is all right; who does she refer to we ask. Andy gets the results of Theo's blood test, he goes to pick up Theo, meet Katie and then the doctor, where the doctor tells them that Theo isn't making red blood cells the way he should. Medavoy and Jones look into the beating death of a man who was killed by the brother and the father of the girl the man was attacking. Russell and Sorenson wonder how they should help Jill. Medavoy and Jones' attack victim was actually raped by the victim four days earlier. Andy returns to the squad, but is beside himself, not knowing what to do. He doesn't feel he has the strength needed to help Theo through this medical problem. Medavoy and Jones interview the person who was seen fleeing the scene of the rape and he reveals that his friend was allowed to come over for sex, with veng
Sorenson stops by the hospital waiting room and tells Sipowicz that the Kirkendall situation is heating up. Fancy talks with Russell about Kirkendall's situation. He tells her that the job knows. Medavoy has an accident in the kitchen with the refrigerator door. Diane and Jill have a loud discussion and Diane tells her that she is out of time. Jill leaves, taking her last "lost time" ever. Theo undergoes his bone marrow test while Medavoy and Jones commiserate about the fact that they sometimes don't feel included in all the activity going on around the squad. Sorenson meets with Sipowicz at the hospital, to find out how Theo is doing and to ask advice about the mechanics of disposing of a body if the need arose, not that he is looking for that solution to the Don Kirkendall situation. Russell meets with Denby and she spots that IAB is following him. Theo results come in; he may have leukemia or his bone marrow may just have shut down temporarily as a result of a virus. Sorenson meets
It's 5 days until Theo's final blood test and Andy feels the need for this health situation to just be over. So he tries to get Theo's final test pulled up. Diane asks Danny about his relationship with Mary; but he expresses that he still has an interest in her. Leo Cohen has become a defense attorney and is he preparing to represent members of the 15th Squad in IAB's investigation of the Kirkendall situation. Don Kirkendall is trying to make a deal for himself that may jam up the members of the 15th squad. The investigation of a multiple homicide at a fast-food restaurant takes a twist when an accomplice in the crime is worried about his daughter, who he used as collateral to his drug dealer. The squad goes after the dealer. Meanwhile, when Medavoy gives his statement to IAB, Martens informs him that "the good cops" need to find someone who will back up their story. They realize to do this they will need to find Denby who might be their only connection to the woman who was "holding" F
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 witn
Andy is bonding with Theo (who mentions he wants to be a cop) at the park, when he hears on his radio that all the emergency vehicles rushing by are going to the scene of a cop shooting. The cop's partner is worried that he is going to be jammed up as his wounded partner's husband is a captain in the NYPD and he was pursuing another suspect at the time (and not backing his partner up). When the 15th Squad is ready to break into the apartment of a possible suspect, Danny gives Diane something else to do, thus keeping her out of harm's way. She later calls him on it, when he tries to do the same thing when they are set to take another suspect. When they return to the house, Danny stops off to break off his relationship with Mary. The Captain stops by to see how the investigation is proceeding into his (now dead) wife's shooting. Knowing they have a suspect in custody, he watches some of the interview and then breaks into to assault the suspect, jeopardizing the investigation. The s
A tourist is raped in her hotel room on the 4th floor and the detectives begin their investigation in a hotel filled with swingers. The following morning Jones and Medavoy catch a homicide in that same hotel on the 8th floor. Are the crimes related? The head of security at the hotel is a retired cop that Sipowicz knows. Danny tells Andy about the relationship that Andy already suspected. Danny wants to make sure that Andy doesn't have a problem with it and later Diane asks him the same thing (although she doesn't seem as sure as Danny). Andy just wants to know if everyone's happy. The last number dialed by the homicide victim was to Stella Kensington; she's a prostitute who also happens to be a little person. It turns out the victim was a pimp who was able to furnish talent for unusual needs. And some of that talent leads the detectives to a witness of the homicide. Meanwhile, the hotel's lawyer offers the rape victim a $500,000 settlement. The rape victim's brother gets it raised to $
Diane consults with a member of the survivor's network over her mixed feelings about her relationship with Danny, while she continually thinks about Bobby. The body of a Russian is found floating in the river. The detectives begin their task of figuring out who he is and why he was found there. The floating victim's wife Ivgenia comes into the squad and shows reservations about talking with Baldwin, she feels more comfortable when Diane is in the room. In the meantime, her black gardener says that he and Ivgenia are having a relationship and that she shot her husband. A bit suspect, given the impression of racism she's given to Baldwin and she later says that he shot her husband. ADA Valerie Haywood suggests that they go after the gardener because in this "he said/she said" situation they've got, the case will be easier to prosecute. The detectives disagree and arrest the wife. Meanwhile, Greg spends the day dealing with two Chinese men who've been brought into the squad. They are only
Alyssa, a 15-year-old schoolgirl is strangled and Russell, Jones and Medavoy investigate. Two of Alyssa's friends are brought in to help gather some background information, but one of them seems reticent to talk. Some essays that Alyssa wrote point to her having had sexual encounters. Her teacher can offer no assistance except a name cited in her last essay. The name mentioned leads the detectives to a suspect who is a registered sex-offender, but his alibi checks out. Later the reticent girl comes forward and reveals there was a relationship between Alyssa and her teacher. His story to the detectives reveals that he was trying to stop Alyssa's obsession with him, which he says started because of the encounters cited in her essays. Meanwhile, Sipowicz and Sorenson investigate the death of a man, where the only witness to the crime is a slightly crazy homeless guy with a TV and a microwave. Their investigation doesn't lead to a conclusive suspect, so they decide to keep their key witnes
A body is found in an alley. The victim is Nicholas, the homeless guy that was supposed to be in lockup overnight. Sorenson has some words with the desk sergeant when he returns to the house. Fancy negotiates a deal with the desk sergeant, to keep the peace and to keep Sorenson out of trouble. All Sorenson has to do is apologize, given his current state of mind it might not be too easy. Mauricio is brought back in from Rikers' to get him to give up the location of Diego who is still their prime suspect in the Jefe homicide and now perhaps Nicholas's murder. Nicholas's family comes in and it is revealed that with the money he had he probably could have had a Park Avenue address. They later return when it is discovered that Nicholas made a phone call to them shortly before his death and Nicholas's brother-in-law admits to taking the call. While on a stakeout for Diego Medavoy asks Jones is he's ever thought about asking ADA Haywood out. Jones doesn't want to discuss the topic. They captu
Fancy comes down on Russell and Sorenson for yesterday's display in the squad room. He assigns Sorenson to work with Medavoy and Jones on a subway double homicide and Russell is to get assistance on her apparent murder-suicide case from Sipowicz. Russell runs into Denby while canvassing some of the employees at the courier company, she indicates to him that the relationship with Danny didn't work out and that piques his interest. Further investigation into the murder-suicide reveals that the murder victim was operating a drug distribution network using the courier service, and it now appears as though Harry Denby has taken it over. Det. Olivo, an old friend of Sorenson's from narcotics, meets Sorenson to inform him that the case that is being worked in their squad may jeopardize a case their task force is building. He has to refer Olivo to Russell and Sipowicz, since he is working another case; however his knowledge of Russell getting involved with this case, puts him on edge. The susp
Sorenson is given modified duty which lets him sit as his desk and catch up on paperwork, he has a chance to be reinstated if the DA's office decides they have enough information to press charges against Sid Thompson. Det. Connie McDowell reports to the precinct for temporary duty and is partnered with Diane. They begin to investigate the stabbing of man in hotel room who claims he was attacked in his room. It is revealed that he was in the company of a trio of Goths. The one Goth left in the hotel room is brought in, but cites one of the others as the probable stabber as he was passed out at the time. The other two are eventually found, one a runaway teenager from Minnesota, the other her mentor and eventually proven to be the stabber. Meanwhile, the father of one of the victim's of Sid Thompson's attack, the case that Sorenson blew, comes in asking about the investigation and the whereabouts of the son's crucifix. So Sipowicz takes a "vacation day" and follows up on the necklace, hop
A small scuffle breaks out in the precinct lobby when the man who enters is identified as the one responsible for the vehicular homicide death of a cop's cousin. This is the second scuffle that the driver has gotten into with the surviving relatives. Sipowicz and Sorenson are able to negotiate to keep charges from being filed against all parties and everyone is satisfied. Captain Bass's wife is stabbed and Russell goes to speak with her, while Jones and Medavoy investigate the crime scene. Bass tells Fancy he wants a full court press to get the guy who did this. In the interim, with a little push from Medavoy, Jones and Haywood make a date for a night of doo-wop. Russell mentions to Fancy that is was suspected but never proven that Bass's wife might have set a fire she was involved in 10 years ago. John Irvin meets an antique toy dealer who is interested in seeing his lead soldier. Danny speaks with Diane about his plans to leave if he gets out of line again making her uncomfortable.
Sipowicz spots something going down. He saves the victim and then pursues the suspects. Seeing one of the perps holding a gun he fires on their car shooting out the rear window, but the car gets away. When he returns to his own car, the victim (now his witness to the shooting) has disappeared. Russell and Sorenson begin an investigation into this shooting, as Sipowicz is required to stay back in the house when doubts are raised as to whether he shot at the right car. Meanwhile, Jones and Medavoy work a robbery and rape case and are joined by McDowell; Medavoy suspects that McDowell might be from IAB, since she only seems to show up when one of them is in a jam. Speaking of IAB, Martens stops by to see Fancy about the Sipowicz story, pressure from 1PP mounts and Sipowicz is asked to see the department shrink. Haywood and Jones discuss their date and the Sipowicz case, Haywood with some doubts and Jones in Sipowicz's corner. A wallet is found that leads to the witness in the shooting
A body is found in a trunk, which Sipowicz and Sorenson believe might be a message to the members of the Scarpelli crime family, since the car was found in their neighborhood. Russell and McDowell interview a man whose member (penis) was sliced off and later found two blocks away by a woman at an ATM. Fancy gets his promotion to Captain. Sipowicz suspects that Fancy knows who his replacement is, only he doesn't know why Fancy's holding onto the information. He has lunch with Cynthia have lunch and discuss what they may or may not be looking for. They concede to see how it goes. Sipowicz finds out that Fancy's replacement is a female lieutenant from the rat squad. John Irvin knows her from GOAL, Gay Officer's Action League, and he describes her as a real ball-buster. The other detectives search for a suspect in the dismemberment as Sipowicz and Sorenson collar a member of the Marino crime family. Their suspect wants a deal with the US and district attorneys, promising that and h
While digging up old cases, to avoid the being around the squad for the arrival of Dalto, Sipowicz and Sorenson encounter a man carrying a cash register named Freddy. Fancy is moving out and Dalto is moving in and she starts making waves. McDowell asks Fancy if the ink is dry on her transfer. The general feeling in the squad is tense. Fancy meets with Capt. Bass to see if anything can be done to get Dalto removed from taking over his old squad. Meanwhile, Freddy takes Sipowicz and Sorenson to the places that he's robbed, but for a chance to get out of his jam, he tells them where he's seen a dead body. The body's been there at least a year and it seems Freddy knows something about it. They find the dead girl's relatives and learn that despite her young age of 14, she was an experienced crack-whore. Gibson stops Andy to ask about his niece, as to the status of their relationship; it seems Cynthia may have an opportunity with someone else, but she hasn't heard from Andy in a while and G

Eddie Gibson confesses to Andy that he mislead Andy last week, so he could find out where he stood with his niece. When the ex-cop comes to and can finally answer some questions, he puts Sipowicz and Sorenson onto a lead involving his daughter's ex-boyfriend or pimp, since his daughter had also been hooking. It turns out to be nothing, but a pattern of other homicides is found. Something of Rodriguez's past comes up; it is revealed he was a hero cop in narcotics.

A cop, allegedly working a second job gets shot, allegedly in a carjacking. The cop's story begins to unravel when during the course of the investigation the detectives find out about his mistress and her ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Medavoy and Jones investigate a shooting at a small business where he knows the owner. The owner fired shots with an unregistered gun, so Medavoy tries to help him out by telling him that his story should be that the gun he fired was carried by the suspects who robbed him. That story doesn't last long, when it is discovered that one of the storeowners' gunshots hit an innocent victim. Diane runs into Dr. Carreras, Bobby's doctor, and they make plans to have dinner that evening. The shot cop tells Sipowicz and Sorenson that he was with a hooker that morning. A suspect is brought in and after Rodriguez interrupts the interrogation and brings it to a close, Sipowicz has a few words for him out in the hall.

They eventually track Tisha down and agree to stay with her for the night, ensuring that she can testify the following morning. Tisha's comment about Diane still having Bobby's picture up and living in the same apartment gets Diane thinking. Meanwhile, Danny tells Andy that he hasn't got Diane out of his system, he plans on putting in for a transfer and he admits to having been outside her apartment the previous evening.

Ryan Lipe is brought in and Sipowicz and Clark Jr. question him; Lipe claims that the shooting was in self defense. After the interview, Sipowicz asks John Irvin about whether he had made any attempt to talk with his father, to which John tells him about his attempt to talk with his father. An old friend of Rodriguez's stops by to ask him for a favor, looking into a situati

They tell him about the reward and he mentions a guy who was looking for a shotgun. McDowell and Ortiz start looking into the death of a woman whose body was found in a garbage truck. Sipowicz tells Clark Jr. about his upcoming vacation plans and then they talk about his relationship with McDowell. Then they spot Julian seemingly playing on the other side of their case. McDowell reports to their interim
Since the Captain has found out about the grudge match, the fight between Laughlin and Clark Jr. is off the card for tonight's fight. McDowell wants to discuss flights to Orlando with Sipowicz, but he doesn't want the whole world (at least the squad) to know about their trip together with Theo. He'll talk to her later; meanwhile Clark Jr. catches a rape case, so they are off to the hospital to begin their investigation. One of the cops at the hospital makes a clucking noise as Clark Jr. is walking away. Back at the squad, Clark Jr. puts a call in that he wants to talk with Laughlin. McDowell decides that she needs to talk to Sipowicz now about her perception of his embarrassment at being on a vacation with her. She tells him she's not going to go. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz interview a registered sex-offender who lived in the area of the rape their investigating. Jones and Medavoy start investigating the shooting of a man who has an ID that indicates he is a doctor; but later it is
It's the morning after and John and Rita scramble to get ready to leave for work as their pagers go off.

A man comes to the squad to report that his sister may be in trouble. McDowell and Ortiz interview the man who reports that a priest wants a $1000 to get her out of trouble. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. bring in Terence Cates and Hughes tells them that the victim's son identified Cates from the mug book. They plan to interview Cates to find out for themselves. So there isn't any mystery, Sipowicz announces to the squad that he and McDowell are going to Disney

He also mentions the missing boy wasn't thrilled with his homelife; preferring to live with his father over his mother. A man, Ted Munns, who believes he has information about their missing child case. He tells them about his suspicions about a man who's online and lives near where the missing boy lived. Jones and Medavoy talk with him and then they lay out a plan to capture this predator, which they su
McDowell and Ortiz arrive at the scene of their homicide. The victim is an elderly woman who was the victim of a assault. One of the tenants in her building, Larry Tyner, is a self-declared former perpetrator of rape-assaults; he mentions that the victim had a junkie grandson who was always looking for a handout. Ortiz questions the building supervisor and he mentions that Larry Tyner is liked by everyone in the building, including the murder victim. Jones and Medavoy re-question Catherine Lowe about her son's murder.

On their suspect's floor Sipowicz gets into a verbal encounter with a woman that winds up with her spitting on him and him helping her to the floor. They find their suspect is one the hallway's onlookers of the incident. They take him out of there and back to the precinct where they start their questioning, but all their suspect can do is wonder what is going to happen to Sipowicz. He tells them that Sipowicz knocked to the floor, the main woman of a big player in the neighborhood named "Money T." Moments later Det. Winslow stops by and tells Clark Jr. that his name was in a dead prostitute's call book. While he doesn't recognize her immediately, Clark Jr. identifies her as one of his CIs (Confidential Informant), although she is unregistered with the department. The detective promises to try and keep him out of the report. Jones and Me

McDowell questions the clerk at the hotel, where her sister and brother-in-law were staying. She gets him to give her the key and she finds her sister lying injured in her hotel bed, with her husband nowhere to be found. Clark Jr. and Sipowicz find their possible suspect at the pool hal
The detectives are on the scene of a shooting where Officer Maya Anderson's partner was shot to death.

Back at the squad, McDowell tells Sipowicz she plans to pick her sister's baby up after the tour; then she is assigned to join Ortiz in looking into a child's abduction. The missing child's parents tell them that they should consider looking at the birth mother for the kidnapping, since she had recent frequent contact with the adoption agency. Clark Jr. who is on a canvas of the area surrounding the crime scene encounters a boy who admits to witnessing the shooting. The boy has told Clark Jr. that the other perp in their shooting was also wounded in his right hand. Sipowicz tells Clark Jr. that they need to keep the kid under raps, so that the boy's father won't disrupt their investigation. McDowell and Ortiz tal
Theo tells his father that he misses having Connie around. Andy tells him that Connie has other responsibilities with the new baby but they will get to see her again, eventually. At the squad McDowell is on the phone checking on the baby (again) when they are called out to the scene of homicide in a vacant lot. The victim is a woman that Sipowicz believes is a hooker, based on her wardrobe; but her ID indicates she was a fashion student.

Angela comes into Tony's office and tells she does want something after all; she wants him to take a look a spot on her inner thigh where she thinks she was injured on the subway this morning. As his office isn't the right place for that sort of activity, he takes her into the observation room for a look and then some. At the scene of a homicide where the detectives have all gathered, one of the uniforms recognizes the victim as one of the precinct's auxiliary cops, her name is Heather Peterson, who is 17-years-old.

Sipowicz and Clark Jr. are on the scene of the death of a caseworker in child services, it's not clear whether she committed suicide or was the victim of foul play. The uniforms on the scene and back at the house have copped an attitude towards the detectives; it seems that those officers who had admitted to their relations with the auxiliary cop are going to be questioned by IAB. Both Sipowicz and Clark Jr. deny to them that they contacted IAB. With murder a possibility, the detectives receive the dead caseworker's files to begin sorting through. An old member of the squad's widow, Ruth Dwyer comes in to talk with Sipowicz about her husband's last wish, which was to have half of his ashes buried or spread somewhere at the 15th squad. He agrees to try and help her out after he runs it by the boss. Rodriquez isn't comfortable with the notion and plans to run it by building services and in the meantime, Sipowicz is going to talk to Eddie Gibson, who might better remember Dwyer beca
The Sipowicz's have moved out of their apartment and Andy has sublet it to John Irvin, which will allow him to keep his same address with the department and avoid any "jackpots" with him and Connie living together.

At the Sipowicz/McDowell household all is not right with the world as Theo has wet the bed for the 3rd night in a row and Andy hasn't made the time to pick up the detergent to get the sheets clean from the previous events. The baby is colicky and crying and tensions are mounting as Andy's pager goes off.

Clark Sr. realizes that Sipowicz is probably on the job. Meanwhile out on the street, Sipowicz is on the job, shaking down a drug dealer named Gordo who he tells that he is looking for any information on any cops that may have been shaking down any dealers.

The tension that has been building between Andy and Connie almost comes to a head after the babysitter has to cancel and Andy can't stay behind to watch the baby until the replace arrives. They exchange a few words with ends with Andy saying he is leaving. Theo, who must have overheard some of their discussion, asks his father if he will be coming back, after all he said he was leaving. Andy tells him he will never leave him as Connie watches the pair leave their home together. Sipowicz arrives late to the crime scene where Clark Jr., Medavoy and Jones are beginning to investigate the death of an 18-year-old Pakistani woman. McDowell arrives to the squad late, citing babysitter problems, which she assures Sipowicz are taken care of. A man, Gordon Dillit, and his wife come in to report that he was mugged and his wife's antique watch was stolen.

Sipowicz and Clark Jr. arrive at crime scene, with Clark Jr. commenting to Sipowicz that he hasn't been able to get in contact with his father. At the crime scene, the detectives encounter Julian Pisano, the snitch who led them to finding Sorenson's body. Julian was shot in the arm, but heard his shooter also cry out in pain. Sipowicz asks him to go alphabetically through the list of people who would want to see him killed. He tells them about "The Dentist" a man he may have recently screwed over in a deal. They tell him to go to the hospital and stay there. Back at the squad, McDowell tells Ortiz about her encounter with Theo, which John Irvin overhears. McDowell asks Sipowicz how Theo was when he dropped him off at school. Sipowicz tells her that Theo insisted that he be dropped off at Hooters.

Ortiz comments to McDowell that she hadn't spoken or heard from him for the past three days. The detectives get a line on a possible suspect, named Todd Grady. Jones and Medavoy go to suspect's apartment to attempt to speak with him. When no one answers they decide to check with the neighbors. Suddenly someone they assume is their possible suspect rounds the corner and doubles back when he realizes they are there to talk with him. He then comes back around the corner with a gun drawn. Jones and Medavoy fire their weapons and after waiting a moment proceed to go around the corner. There they find a boy has been shot by a bullet that went through the wall, from one of their guns. Sipowicz and Clark arrive on the scene as an ambulance is being called. The detectives and Rodriguez are at the hospital, when they find that the 13-year-old boy doe
The morning after their breakup and Clark and Ortiz are on the scene of a homicide and there is a hint of tension. Aware of what has transpired, Sipowicz tells McDowell that it is just a matter of time before it hits the fan between Clark and Ortiz. The homicide the detectives have caught involves a victim who was bludgeoned to death. The murder weapon is still at the scene and contains one good fingerprint. Back at the squad they run the case for Rodriguez. Sipowicz gets a call from Theo's teacher, who refers to McDowell as Mrs. Sipowicz, something which appears to make Sipowicz uncomfortable.

The woman's husband, Roy Pardee arrives on the scene. Sipowicz and Clark arrive at the office of Carla Whitford, a woman who was doing business with their victim.

Andy wonders if that is something they should talk about, but thinks again and changes the subject. The detectives respond to scene of the death of an African man (the third in 6 months). One of the other residents of the building exchanges a few words with Sipowicz. No one at the scene is cooperative, except a uniform at the scene who tries to help out to much. They get into the victim's apartment, where they find his wife screaming and bleeding from her arm. At the hospital the detectives find out the status of the victim, she will be able to leave the hospital and come down to the squad for questioning. Clark is caught flirting with the attractive doctor who is caring for victim's wife. Both Ortiz and Sipowicz are witness to this event. Clark seems oblivious to the fact that anything happened. Jones
Sipowicz meets Clark at the scene of a homicide and tells him that his meeting with Frank Colohan gave him no useful information that would help in his and McDowell's defense against Colohan's parents for custody of Michelle. At the scene of the crime they are beginning to investigate, the victim was reported to have stumbled his way to the front of the bodega and died, presumably as a result of what appears to be an injury to his eye. Back at the squad, Jones arrives late after canvassing Jerry Well's building again. Rodriguez tells him that he needs to be a little more subtle in his investigation into Haywood's beating. It seems Wells has been complaining of harassment. The bank card of Sipowicz and Clark's victim is being use at an OTB near their crime scene. They are going to go back out, but first Sipowicz hears what the other detectives have found on Frank Colohan's parents. Medavoy gets a line from the DEA that Frank Colohan's mother once was busted for smuggling a type of

The other detectives are on the scene of a woman who was murdered in her own apartment. A neighbor, who had heard some commotion going on in that apartment gives them the name of the victim's boyfriend. Meanwhile, Sipowicz meets with Diane Russell, who is now working in the special victims unit.

Sipowicz believes with her experience Russell might be able to talk with Caffee and Russell agrees to try helping out. Clark and Ortiz interview the boyfriend of their victim, whose name is Stan. He tells them his girlfriend was doing her brother-in-law, which is one of the reasons why she was his ex-girlfriend. He appears to be shocked when they tell him about her death, and he gives them an alibi to confirm. He claims to have been returnin
It's the morning after for John and Jennifer and they'll both be late for work if John doesn't put the honey bottle away. The detectives respond to the scene of a homicide in grocery, where no money was taken. Ortiz spots Clark getting out of Dr. Devlin's car and is short with him when he says hello. Back at the squad, canvas hasn't turned up anything, but crime scene did get a fingerprint from a similar crime that occurred the night before. That fingerprint belongs to Terry Parkhurst. Medavoy tells the others that he is anticipating receipt of the list that might announce his promotion to detective 2nd grade. McDowell makes plans for a small wedding ceremony that might be able to take place later that evening. Rodriguez calls Sipowicz into his office and tells him that the commissioner will not allow two detectives in the same squad to be married. Sipowicz asks Rodriguez if it will be a problem with him if they go ahead and get married anyway. He tells them it won't, as long a
Fraker is on trial for the attempted murder of Rodriguez. Haywood is for the prosecution and Sipowicz's old "friend" James Sinclair represents Fraker. For Sinclair's part, he lays out a defense that makes it look like Fraker and IAB were getting ready to take down the corrupt 15 Squad. The detectives hear about Fraker's defense plans, but at Sipowicz's direction start to concentrate on the case at hand. Freddie Langford is the brother of murder victim and he reveals himself to the detectives as a convicted sex offender. Rodriguez is back on the job and his detectives run their case for him. Ortiz leaves to testify at the Fraker trial. Langford comes in for questioning. He tells them about the father of one of his alleged victims who has been hassling him. He also tries to tell the detectives how he was setup and wrongfully convicted of his sex crime. Jones and Medavoy talk with one of Langford's brother's co-worker who had once gotten into the fight with the victim. The fact
The detectives are on the scene of a transvestite's murder. They know the victim's friend "Monika" from a case from the previous year and when Sipowicz's charm doesn't work with that friend, McDowell and Ortiz step in and take over the interview and ultimately the case. Haywood has Martens on the stand, where he tells them about the unusual activity that IAB has had with 15th precinct. He also talks about Fraker's state of mind on the day of the Rodriguez shooting. Sipowicz and Clark go to the hospital where a surgeon was knifed. Dr. Devlin asks Clark for special attention on this case, as the surgeon was a great teacher for her. The doctor, has trouble remembering what his attacker looked like, he only remembers the knife. Back at the squad, Rodriguez tells them that the doctor once did some work for someone the mayor knows, so the case is high profile. Jones learns from hospital security that Nathan Dale might be someone worth talking to in the surgeon's stabbing as he had a c
Sinclair has brought to the stand Hector Acevedo, the man who Rodriguez roughed up when he found it was Acevedo who broke into his mother's apartment and robbed and beat her. Then he calls Det. Olivera to the stand, the one witness to Rodriguez's treatment of Acevedo. Haywood asks for a sidebar and gets sometime to prepare for this witness, whose testimony might be damaging, but Rodriguez isn't worried. The detectives are on the scene of the assault of Ron Szudarek. They interview the victim's next door neighbor, but the guilt on his face is only caused by the fact he is smoking behind his wife's back. Back at the squad there is discussion about Olivera and the trial as well as what information they've gathered on their case. Medavoy and Jones are reported to be on their way to interview Bob Drazin, an employee of the victim's barber shop. In the meantime, a woman comes into the squad to report that her husband is missing; Sipowicz and Clark agree to look into it for her, even th
The detectives are on the scene of a dump job, as always Medavoy wants to talk about the trial, whose outcome is as yet unknown, because it is only 8:00 AM. While Medavoy and Jones examine the body, Sipowicz and Clark talk to the swimmer (in a Speedo) who found the body. Sipowicz tries to get the swimmer covered up, but cries "Uncle" when the swimmer bends over. Back at the squad another dump job comes in, while the detectives run their case by Rodriguez. Though he tries to hide it, Rodriguez is distracted by fact that the jury is still out. McDowell and Ortiz get to the scene of the other dump job, meanwhile the male detectives go to the first victim's apartment and find themselves distracted by their victim's neighbor, who is wearing thong underwear during their interview. In the midst of all that distraction, she tells them they should look for the victim's son, Michael Woodruff, which Sipowicz send Medavoy and Jones off to do. McDowell and Ortiz interview their victim's husba
John is surprised by an early morning visit from Jennifer. Sometime later that morning he and the other detectives are on the scene of a homicide when Russell joins them on the scene. The homicide they caught matches a case she had three weeks earlier. When a piece of evidence is found that helps to link their cases, she decides to stay and participate in their investigation. Jones meets with Michael Woodruff and Michael tells him that he has told his father about their get togethers, but he hasn't told him where he is currently living. Back at the squad Russell runs down her case, which matches their homicide almost exactly. The detectives talk with a bartender and the owner of the bar where the victim was last seen. Word had begun leaking out about the similarity of the cases; the press and 1PP are taking an interest, increasing the pressure for the squad to close the case. Russell leaves to take an important call. Jones and Medavoy respond to the scene of a possible arson, t
Andy and Connie wake to the call of another possible "Time Bar" homicide. They decide they have nothing further to discuss on the situation with Diane. Besides, Connie has not been feeling good in the morning. The detectives arrive at the scene of the homicide and find a match book that indicates the victim was at another bar that is owned by the Time Bar owner. McDowell accompanies Sipowicz to the Time Bar where they are going to meet Russell. As before, the owner offers them nothing but he does make a comment about what he heard about Russell's behavior the previous evening. After Russell leaves, McDowell comments that if it was only about Russell drinking again, why couldn't he tell her about that? He tells her to drop it. When he enters the squad room, Clark is handed a mysterious message that John Irvin tells him was left for him downstairs. The message smells of Dr. Devlin's perfume. Medavoy and Jones get a call for a homicide at the home of the Ackermans, their recent a
Clark, Ortiz and Russell are on the scene of a woman who's managed to survive an attack by the "Time Bar" killer. Lucy Wenner, the victim, tells them that two men were involved in her attack. She heard one of them mention that "Jimmy is gonna be pissed." The only James involved with the case that the detectives know is the "pain in the ass" owner of the Time Bar, James Carlin. They are going to talk with him, in the meantime Rodriguez reports back to the brass in his continuing effort to keep a task force from being formed. Jones and Medavoy arrive on the scene of the death of a mugger by an off duty cop named Trotter. They are told by Trotter that he was on the scene planning to meet one of his CI's named "Flossy" and that it was a "good shoot." They believe him, but need to ask all the questions. While awaiting the arrival of Carlin, Russell tells Sipowicz that her biopsy is in an hour. He tells her that she should talk with McDowell who wants to help. Sipowicz, Clark and Ru
McDowell and Sipowicz go into Rodriguez's office and tell him about her pregnancy. Of course she'll be assigned to desk duty from this point forward. Back in the squad room, they let the others know that their wedding is back on and Sipowicz asks John Irvin to perform a simple service at their apartment at 8 o'clock that evening. The reality of the job sets back in when a call comes in for another "Time Bar" homicide; McDowell citing the stomach flu stays behind while the other detectives leave for the scene. They meet up with Jones and Medavoy who are already on the scene. The crime scene is very familiar and the victim was a nurse at the hospital where Dr. Devlin works, Clark plans to follow up with her about the nurse. Sipowicz suggest that Russell should go and deal with what she needs to deal with; she tells him that she would prefer to keep working. Back at the squad, McDowell runs a theory past the others that the perpetrator might be an impersonator, since none of the cri
Andy bangs on the neighbor's door at 5:00 AM; the neighbor is practicing his bassoon for a big concert later that evening. He returns to bed, only to receive a call to a crime scene. He arrives with Clark at the scene of a retired cop, Roy Shaughnessy, and his wife who were beaten and robbed in their home. Sipowicz worked with the cop at the 20th precinct. Shaughnessy has been taken to the hospital; his wife tells the detectives what happened. While leaving Clark makes an off-hand comment about "old-timers," or rather as he corrects himself when Sipowicz appears annoyed "all-timers." The neighbor comes across the hall and gives Connie complementary tickets for her and her husband to his recital. Medavoy and Jones are on the scene of arson, where Barry Tytel, the author of a book "Only Schmucks Pay Income Tax," has found that his vehicle has been torched. Medavoy is more interested in the content of the Tytel's book rather than the arson. Michael's foster father comes to talk to
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
A Jewish jeweler is gunned down outside of his shop. His widow tells Sipowicz and Clark that a white guy who's recently converted to Islam had been giving her husband some trouble lately. Clark gets the address for Tim Garrity, the recent convert to Islam; just as Jones gets a call that Michael's aunt has been brutally assaulted. Jones and Medavoy go to the aunt's apartment. Jones talks with Michael, who tells Jones that his aunt wasn't seeing anyone, and that his father wasn't around. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the converted Muslim. A uniform is bringing in Michael's dad and Jones is preparing himself for the pending interview. Rodriguez suggests that Medavoy and Ortiz take the interview, that way Jones won't succumb to his desire to beat the crap out of Craig Woodruff and give him what he wants. McDowell interviews an employee of the dead jeweler and she tells her that her boss had an ugly argument over the phone with a rapper named "DJ Drayno." Rodriguez has her get the inf
Sipowicz and Clark are at the scene of a hit and run, where the driver of an SUV has struck down a guy on a bike and killed the young daughter of a known mobster. They move over to the scene, where the suspect's SUV has been found, but the young black men at the scene, who impeded a group of Italian boys who were looking to hold the driver and the vehicle for the police claim to not know the whereabouts or the identity of the driver. Back at the squad they find out the SUV was reported stolen and the others find out about Jones plans to become qualified as a foster parent for Michael Woodruff. Ortiz and Medavoy go to the hospital to interview a woman who was raped in her own apartment. Jones reports back from the canvas that a plate number was obtained from a vehicle leaving the scene, which gives them a lead to start with. Meanwhile an anonymous caller on the hit and run gives the detectives the name Calvin George. They get George's address and go to the home, only to find a car
A jogger who was gunned down in a park manages to contact his wife via his cell phone before he passes. His wife (now at the scene) tells Ortiz about her husband's partner and their business dealings and a British tourist with a camera makes the start of the investigation interesting for Sipowicz and Clark. Meanwhile at another crime scene, Jones and Medavoy are investigating a body found in the trunk of a stolen car. The DOA is the owner of the comedy club. It's Rodriguez's last day and John Irvin passes around a card for everyone to sign for the going away party that will be held later that evening. Sipowicz and Clark interview the dead jogger's business partner. He tells them about the affair his partner was having with another man's wife and gives them her name, Janet. At the "Laff Pit" Jones and Medavoy interview the comedy club owner's wife, Lois Rubicoff. She tells them about some minor problems that her husband was having with some of the talent. Boxes for Rodriguez's r
The detectives are on the scene of what appears to be a gang killing. A new detective arrives at the scene; his name is Stan Hatcher, whose previous accomplishments include saving kids on a school bus. With his contacts he tells the others that he's heard someone made inappropriate comments to a leader of the Latin Kings. Sipowicz tells him to run with what he knows. The detectives return to the squad to find that Gibson has brought his obnoxious African Gray parrot. Hatcher tells the detectives what he's heard about the Latin Kings and leaves with Ortiz to find the leader. A man comes into the squad to report the "kidnapping" of his 15-year-old daughter. He tells them about an older boy that his daughter has been seeing. His attempts to get in touch with the boy (or his parents) Medavoy and Jones agree to look into what they define as more of a "runaway situation." Ortiz and Hatcher find "King Jazz" (Wilmer Lopez) leader of the Latin Kings. Hatcher seems to know the way to
Sipowicz is in early and sees that his little ploy has worked; Gibson's parrot now only has a one word vocabulary: "douche bag." Sipowicz meets Hatcher and Clark at the scene of an apparent suicide where he finds that Hatcher has already let one of the witnesses go. The victim's suicide note makes reference to man who had kidnapped her last year. The note indicates a partial license plate number and a description of the kidnapper's vehicle. However, other than the victim missing her rent last year for two months, no one can find any other indication that the victim ever told anyone about her kidnapping. An elderly woman comes into the squad to report that something dear to her has been stolen and she thinks she knows who stole it. She thinks her nephew may have stolen her diamond ring; the nephew at one time had some trouble with drugs. Medavoy suggests an approach they can take to begin questioning her nephew. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Paul Grady, the man who owns the van wi
Sipowicz and Clark arrive at an early morning scene (so early it's still dark), where Hatcher has been wounded in a shoot out with a man in a window. Hatcher says he was chasing a black male suspect and was looking for him over a fence when a light came on behind him. He turned around and was shot by a guy in the window with a gun. Hatcher returned fire and struck the shooter. Sipowicz and Clark go up to interview the man that Hatcher shot and wounded. He tells them a different story; he says that he saw Hatcher draw his gun, whereas Hatcher says he already had his gun drawn. Sipowicz wants Hatcher to get his story straight, because a shooting involving a civilian is going to get the bosses involved. Sipowicz and Clark tell Gibson what they know about the morning's shooting. Gibson wants to know if they are standing by their fellow detective. Sipowicz responds that they are doing their job and investigating the shooting. Gibson wants to know what he's supposed to tell Hatcher'
Gibson calls Sipowicz into his office; Sipowicz has been transferred to Missing Persons at the morgue. Sipowicz accuses Gibson of not having the spine that he once told him he would need to have when it came time to do something about Hatcher. Sipowicz grabs an empty box out of Gibson's office and uses it to clear off his desk, while he is telling the others about the supposed man-power redeployments that have caused his transfer. Hatcher doesn't seem as surprised by this turn of events as the others. Sipowicz goes to see the Chief of Personnel and lodges his complaint about the Chief's nephew, who he says doesn't belong on the job. He tells him that he has been protecting a bad cop. The chief doesn't want to listen, so Sipowicz leaves and reports to the morgue, where he meets Det. Wally Dorland, a sixteen year veteran of the morgue assignment. Back in the 15th precinct Clark and the others start to work the homicide of a woman who was purported to be a therapist. They find evid
Sipowicz meets with Haywood who has had an old case that was recently reopened dumped upon her. The case against Leonard Peeler has been reopened since the testimony of Earl Bezdek, a man who's found God and is dying of AIDS, has been recanted. This allowed DNA testing to occur that exonerates Peeler. Sipowicz tells her that the case (we later learn his first as a detective) was a good arrest 18 years ago. She asks him to be prepared to offer his assistance if the case does get officially reopened. Sipowicz leaves to join the other detectives on the scene of a homicide where a body was found by a cigarette smoking nursing student who can't handle dead bodies. Gibson introduces a new detective to the squad, Det. Kelly Ronson; she comes from narcotics and is pursuing a law degree in the evening. A woman, Alyssa Huber, comes into the squad looking for help to find her missing baby, who's been missing for maybe a couple of years. She left her daughter in the care of a woman while sh
Clark arrives at the hospital where there is a victim who's lost his memory after being shot in the head. The victim has no recollection of anything from the time before he was shot. In court Sipowicz is on hand as Leonard Peeler's conviction is dismissed "without prejudice", which means that that they still have the right to re-file against Peeler, should the need arise. Sipowicz returns to the squad to find out that the DA squad is looking to take over Sipowicz's case file on the Clifton homicide. Sipowicz and Clark go to see Ann Marie Sullivan, the woman that Peeler said he was with the night of the little girl's death. She continues to stick to the story she told eighteen years ago. Ortiz and Ronson are at the apartment building where the amnesia victim was found. They knock on the door of an apartment that the super tells them is vacant; a young girl answers the door. Another woman pulls her back and tells them that she didn't see the man in their photo and she quickly shut
Jones and Medavoy arrive on the scene of a shooting; meanwhile back at the squad Sipowicz and Clark are getting ready to leave and interview Cindy Clifton's mother, despite the fact that Cindy's father "lawyered up" the entire family. Clark's departure is delayed by the arrival of Jennifer Devlin, someone he hasn't seen in quite some time and now is sporting a wild streak of color in her hair. She wants to Clark to accompany her to on a trip to Miami. He declines her invitation, offering dinner instead, but more importantly he asks her if she's taken her medication and she responds that she doesn't want to be treated like a child. Clark is confused by her behavior. At the library Sipowicz and Clark try talking with Sharon Clifton. They get her to give them a list of everyone who stayed at her home the Thanksgiving weekend that Cindy Clifton was killed. She relents and gives a list to work with. Medavoy and Jones run down what they know about their shooting victim, Kevin Traylor,
Clark comes into the squad and tells Sipowicz he's been trying to find Jennifer Devlin, who walked out of the psych facility last night. Sipowicz tells him about a man who is coming in for an interview, one of Cindy Clifton's teachers, who wrote an unusual note "special, special pal" in her yearbook. The teacher, David Lewis tells them that he did have a support group relationship with Cindy Clifton, which was nothing like the relationship Cindy told him that she had with her half-brother Sam Jeffers. The detectives let him go, but having found him a little strange, Sipowicz gets Lewis' used piece of gum and sends it off for a DNA test. The detectives try to run down information on David Lewis, but they can't seem to find anybody that will say anything bad about him. Jones is leaving for court as today is the day when Michael is supposed to testify against his father. Brockhurst comes in with information on the sex-offenders that lived around Cindy Clifton, but it is Medavoy who c
John meets Jennifer for breakfast, she appears to be on the road to recovery and he continues to offer her his support. At a crime scene Sipowicz arrives a little out of sorts, earlier that morning Connie gave birth to their son, Matthew Nicholas, 7 lbs. 3 oz. Jones and Medavoy also arrive at the scene, where a woman has been robbed and beaten to death in her apartment. Irma Pacheco, one of Ronson's old contacts from narcotics comes to the squad and tells Ronson and Ortiz some information about a guy she's seeing, Pete Murphy, who is going to be receiving a shipment of arms. Irma wants to know from Ronson what kind of reward she might receive and whether or not it would be enough money for her and Ronson to run off together, a comment which leaves Ortiz speechless. Sipowicz and Clark talk with the dead woman's husband, Andrew Moss. He mentions his wife's ex-husband, Ed Pisarchik, as someone they need to look at. Jones leaves to go to the court; the jury has come back in Craig Woo
After another late night out Clark arrives late at a crime scene, wearing the same clothes he wore the day before. Sipowicz comments that his new lifestyle doesn't suit him. Back at the squad, Det. Laura Murphy has joined the detectives as Ortiz's new partner. She comes from a group that did background checks on future cops, no real detective work according to Sipowicz. She assures him that her three years as a uniform have prepared her for working on the street. They are also anticipating the arrival of a new CO. The morning's victim, a Dr. Miller, was reported to be in New York researching a book and he received two phone calls that the detectives are going to follow up. Sipowicz receives a package containing a dead rat and a note "PAB", which Clark laughs off. Out on the street, Ortiz and Murphy go to the scene of another homicide, where Murphy runs into Off. Keogh, someone she went to the academy with. The victim, a homeless man, was observed by a witness to be hanging out
Sipowicz arrives at the scene of the homicide of a pregnant 18-year-old. According to a uniform, Clark is already on the scene but asleep in his car waiting for the others to arrive. Ortiz and Murphy arrive, followed by Bale who wants all of the detectives to confer before they begin their canvas. Sipowicz covers for Clark, but then goes to give him a rude awakening. Back at the squad, Sipowicz notices that his fish are listing at the bottom of their tank. Sipowicz and Clark are going off to follow up on lead and Bale reiterates to the detectives that he wants to know everything going on with their cases, "up to the minute." Sipowicz informs him about his fish. Jones and Medavoy go to the scene of a robbery, where the thief stole her grandmother's diamond ring. When asked who else knew about the ring, the victim, Lorraine Stuval, says she was the only one. Her husband, Leon Belkin, an ex-con released six months ago, couldn't have had anything to do with it. The detectives deci
The detectives are on the scene of ex-con Lester Byrd's homicide when Sipowicz receives a call from his wife telling him that Theo didn't arrive at school this morning. Sipowicz leaves the scene and arrives at the school to find that Theo has shown up. He finds out from Theo that he was met by a man who said he was a friend of his dad, the man had a detective shield and exhibited knowledge of recent events in their lives. The man took Theo for a half hour ride. Back at the squad, Bale introduces his new movement log policy and he puts John Irvin in charge. The detectives run the case by Bale. Sipowicz arrives and Bale magnanimously lets him not charge his morning's activity to lost time. Sipowicz asks to be off the case for the day, citing that Jones can work the case with Clark. Sipowicz wants to catch up on his paperwork and Bale allows him to do this, but says that he is not setting a precedent. Theo's guardian Anna comes into the squad and he questions her about what happen
Clark leaves his latest encounter's apartment, hoping to make it to work on time. The other detectives are already on the scene of the blunt force trauma homicide of artist Tracy Gilchrist and Clark (of course) arrives late. Annoyed with this, Sipowicz shuts Clark out of his interview of one of the victim's neighbor. She tells him that the victim worked as a phone sex operator. After the interview Clark tries to address the situation, but Sipowicz isn't listening. Back at the squad room, Sipowicz takes delivery of a package (of kiddie porn). When he signs his name, the FBI agent reveals himself and takes him to the coffee room, where his partner and Lt. Bale are waiting. With the recent pattern of harassment to back him up, Sipowicz and Bale get the FBI to drop their investigation. Clark leaves for court, he is testifying in the case against Steve McClintock. Scott Garvin and his attorney come to the squad to report the probable kidnapping of his son. Garvin has received a ran
Sipowicz receives a late night phone call and he goes to the bar where Clark is drinking and tries to convince him that it is time to go home. He takes Clark's keys and leaves with Clark in pursuit. Outside of the bar three shots are fired in their direction, one of them strikes Sipowicz in the shoulder. At the hospital Sipowicz has been stitched up and is going to work. He tells Medavoy that he thinks the shooting was a random act, or related to Clark and had nothing to do with his stalker. Murphy and Ortiz interview the bartender, who admits to making the call to Sipowicz about Clark's drinking. He also tells them that an off-duty cop works his door, but he had left before the shooting occurred; he also tells them that he isn't giving up that cop's name. They convince him it is in his best interest to do otherwise. In the squad's coffee room, members of Sipowicz's AA support group are there to give him some support. Someone called and told them that he had begun drinking agai
On a city bus a man was stabbed in the chest in front of his wife and kids. A witness reports to Sipowicz that the victim and his killer were eyeballing each other down before the stabbing occurred. Medavoy tells Jones about his daughter's plans to buy a house. He is going to need to find a part time job to help her out. Jones tells him about a position as a bouncer, but he doesn't think Medavoy can handle that kind of job. Medavoy is a little put out that no one thinks he handle himself. Sipowicz is contemplating the stabbing case when Clark arrives and tries to discuss it with him. Sipowicz is distracted by the effect of the killing on the victim's family; he is also bothered by Clark's feeling for the case. They run the case by Bale and then Bale checks in with Sipowicz's mental state, post shooting and everything else that has recently been going on. Sipowicz tells him that everything is okay. An antiques dealer, Gerard Prosser comes into the squad to go over the details o
Sipowicz and Clark have dinner and a conversation. Clark doesn't want anyone else to get "checked out" of his life and Sipowicz makes a deal that if Clark sticks around, he'll stick around, which reiterates his statement back at the squad locker room that he isn't going anywhere. Clark and Sipowicz arrive on the scene where a woman, Lucy Welker, was beaten by a guy she describes a white homeless guy that looks like a lion. She can't give them any better description than that. Medavoy arrives to work with a black eye, given to him by a woman he describes as 5 foot nothing and Murphy offers him some makeup to help reduce the shine. Bobbi Kingston comes by to tell Jones that Michael's father is applying for visitation rights and probably eventually custody. Jones is surprised to find out that the hearing is this afternoon. Bale arrives at the squad, with a note to give someone a call, he is brought up to speed on the morning's cases and notices Medavoy's shiner, which he asks him ab
Sipowicz is doing a little studying and Medavoy catches him; he confesses that he is studying for the sergeant's exam. Medavoy quips that Sipowicz's career is on the upswing, while his own is going down; he isn't sure what his future holds for him, Sipowicz reassures him that he is a good cop and he'll get through this. Jones is looking to take some lost time; the final custody determination hearing for Michael is set for this afternoon. Bale grants him the time to do what he needs to do and then Medavoy comes into his office to plead his case, but Bale isn't going to cut him any slack. The jury in the trial against Simon Kerensky is hung and the judge declares a mistrial. It will be necessary for Lucy Welker to testify again, only it probably won't happen until February. Faced with this new burden, Lucy wonders why no one else involved has to deal with this, she blurts out the name Ike, which is the name of Simon Kerensky's brother. Lucy tries to backtrack mentioning that name.
Sipowicz is still studying for the sergeant's exam. Medavoy's trial is today. Jones is still looking for Michael, he's been in e-mail contact with him, but Michael doesn't want to be found by his real father. Murphy and Ortiz go off to investigate a molestation case. Jones goes to Craig Woodruff's apartment and after breaking into it, finds him there, dead. Sipowicz and Clark arrive on the scene and they need him to account for whereabouts. Bale wants him to voucher his three guns with the desk sergeant. Murphy and Ortiz go to the school and talk to the boy who was molested. The boy tells them that a man wanted his underwear for three DVDs. The man touched him. The boy was smart enough to get a license plate number of the van. Medavoy testifies in his trial, each side quickly presents their case, but Medavoy asks to speak on his own behalf and tells the story about him trying to help his daughter out. Jones comes back to the squad and wants to talk with Sipowicz and Clark.
Sipowicz reports for the sergeant's exam and finds he is the oldest taker of the test. The detectives are on the scene of a death of the brother of a mentally disabled man. Medavoy makes small talk about the exam, which causes Sipowicz to leave with Clark and go up and talk with victim's brother Martin Schweiss. The interview with Martin doesn't go well; the brother thinks that his brother is with his girlfriend and he asks the detectives if they have any weed. Kathleen Halloran, the woman caring for the brother tells them what she knows about the victim's girlfriend, Elena Lozada, including the fact that the girlfriend they recently had a big fight with the victim about Martin. Jones and Medavoy are redirected to investigate an assault case. They arrive on the scene to find two tenants trying to move into the same apartment. They give Jones and Medavoy all the information they have on the man, Jerome King, who rented them the apartment, which the detectives are going to pursue.
The detectives are on the roof of a parking garage, where an attorney has been found shot to death in his car and the apparent victim of a robbery. Medavoy is sporting a new shirt, which is a little bright in the other guys' eyes. Back at the squad, Sipowicz and Clark run the case by Bale. The murder might have been part of a pattern of robberies, since three similar robberies had been reported in that area, but this one was the first to result in a death. It's been two weeks, but the results of the sergeant's exam haven't been published yet. Medavoy gets more grief about his outfit, but both Murphy and John Irvin love it. Murphy and Ortiz are sent off to a schoolyard shooting and as Jones and Medavoy are departing, Medavoy suggests that they might make a detour if they pass a menswear shop. Murphy and Ortiz arrive at the shooting scene. The guys at the schoolyard are preparing for a basketball tournament. One of the players on the court, Tyler Newell, might be the next Lebron
Faith Chandler, a hooker, was murdered in the apartment of a former madam. Chandler was working an AA program. The former madam gives Sipowicz and Clark the name, Bob Cavanaugh, a man she knows was one of the victim's clients. Brigid Scofield comes to the squad to see Medavoy about a possible apartment she's found for him. Caught a little off guard, he agrees to meet her at lunch to look at the apartment (that of course he doesn't really want, need or more importantly can afford). Murphy and Ortiz go to the scene of a woman, Tracy Llewellyn, who was found murdered. The landlord tells them that the woman's apartment was being paid for (in cash) by designer named Hal Matheson. Bob Cavanaugh comes in for questioning with Sipowicz and Clark. He admits to knowing Faith Chandler and having more than a business relationship with her but he hadn't seen her in two weeks. Murphy and Ortiz go to the Hal Matheson's design studio and meet his wife, Paige. When he calls into the studio, Pai
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, t
The owner of a diner, Gene Stratis, has been stabbed to death and Sipowicz and Clark interview the victim's son. The son gives them his father's background, a real immigrant's success story, but he tells them nothing that would indicate his father should be the victim of murder. Ortiz's aunt comes to the squad to talk to her about her cousin, Paula. Ortiz's cousin has started hanging out with someone that her aunt isn't comfortable with and it is causing her daughter's behavior to change. Ortiz promises her aunt that she will stop by where her cousin works and check in on her and her new boyfriend, the owner of the business where she works. Sipowicz and Clark are going to run down a former employee of the diner who was let go last month. Jones and Medavoy are on the scene of a murder of public relations man, Paul Westerville at a parking garage. While looking into the victim's affects, Jones finds a picture of Brendan Quinn, a recently paralyzed cop that he went to the academy wi
Sipowicz and Clark arrive on the scene of a car bombing. The victim's daughter, Elizabeth Keenan, is on the scene and she addresses the detectives in a very cool businesslike manner when answering their questions and giving them information about her father. Back at the squad they run the case by Bale and Munson; the Feds, the DA and the Chief of Detectives is interested because of a possible terrorist implication of the bomb. The other detectives break up the list of past and present employees of Brett Keenan's company to checkout; meanwhile Murphy and Ortiz are sent off to a homicide in an alley. Their victim is Garrett Tinsley, a 17-year-old boy from a private school. The man who found the body tells them that the victim was a real asshole. Medavoy and Jones interview Phil Beckett, one of the former employees of Brett Keenan's company. He appears successful and indicates that he left the company on good terms. He tells them about Keenan's trouble with a bodyguard on a trip to
Sipowicz and Clark arrive at the home of an 80-year-old millionaire, Hugh Rasmussen, who was smothered to death. They talk to the man's secretary, Judith Howell, a middle-aged woman, who found the body. Then the wife, Amy Rasmussen arrives back home; she's come back from the gym and she is young enough (28-years-old) to be the victim's granddaughter. She acknowledges the comments that her husband has been thought about as a dirty old man and that she may be considered a gold digger, but as far as she's concerned they can all go straight to hell, she loved her husband. Sipowicz and Clark run the basics of what they know so far by Bale and Bale notes to Sipowicz that today is the day of his promotion and he offers his congratulations. Jones and Medavoy go to a retirement home, where Olive Rosenthal was found dead. The doctor found a suspicious needle mark on the woman's body. The director of the home wants the detectives to avoid talking to the other residents, but they tell her th
The detectives arrive on the scene of shooting outside of a school. The victim is Lester Bakewell, a sergeant in the US Army who was at the school to do recruitment. Also on the scene is another sergeant named Sipowicz, who is there with his uniform officers. Clark takes the opportunity to bust the new sergeant's balls. A woman, Denise Campo, comes in to report her great uncle has missing for four days. Jones and Medavoy take the case and she tells them that he is homeless and that he is just a sweet old man. She gives them a picture of her uncle. An Army warrant officer Steve Nutting from CID is in Bale's office, he is going to assist in the investigation. Clark and Nutting interview the dean of students from the school. The dean tells them about the peaceful demonstrations against recruiters, but he also tells them about Paul Corbelli, one of the students whose brother was killed in Iraq four months ago. He does know that the boy had access to a rifle and that according to t
Ortiz and Murphy arrived on the scene of a shooting, where two of Sipowicz's men were involved in chasing down a suspect, who got away after he able to shoot one of the officers. Back at the squad, Sipowicz tells the pair about a possible witness to the crime that he saw while they were all still at the scene, an elderly woman sitting at her window. Even though it is Medavoy's last day on the job, Sipowicz doesn't feel like getting his picture taken. With Medavoy leaving Clark is now partnered with Jones and together they go to the scene of crime, where a woman, Deborah Olshan, was beaten to death in her home, a possible victim of a robbery. At the scene they interview Maxine Annunziato, her friend and the one who discovered the body. Murphy and Ortiz talk with the woman that Sipowicz identified as a probable witness to the shooting of the officers. She tells them that she saw the officers enter the building, but she didn't see them chasing anyone. Clark and Jones return to the s
The interim boss Lt. Henry comes into the squad and introduces himself to the detectives, who in turn introduce themselves. They offer to bring him up to speed on their cases, but Lt. Henry is the anti-Bale and tells them they can get to it when they get to it. He is more interested in knowing if any of them like to play golf. Murphy and Ortiz go to the scene of a homicide where a young Muslim woman, Farah Amar has been stabbed to death. In questioning the neighbor they learn that the woman had numerous loud arguments with her husband. Back at the squad while Sipowicz tries to bring their new boss "Arnold Palmer" up to speed on their investigation into Bale's shooting, Jones and Clark try to get more information about Sergei Yesenin's whereabouts from "Russian Mike" who has come back in for further questioning. "Russian Mike" wants a deal before he will cooperate any further with the investigation. The husband of Murphy and Ortiz's victim, Adeeb Amar, comes in for questioning. Th
Jones and Clark respond to the death of woman named Pamela Wyatt, who appears to have been a high priced call girl. Ortiz and Murphy arrive on the scene along with Sgt. Sipowicz who enlightens Jones and Clark about his officially taking over command of the 15 Squad.
