It Takes a Village

A son is bitter about his father's death and offers $5000 in cash to anyone who can produce the killer. Andy avoids getting the eye surgery he needs. Simone and Kirkendall try to work the case, despite the impedance to the investigation caused by the reward. A drug-addicted pregnant mother gives up her kids up for the reward. Sipowicz and Russell investigate the rape of a 9-year-old girl. The victim's mother is convinced that the perp may be a retarded youth from their building who's going through adolescence. Later the girl is able to recall more details that get them on a lead on the real perp, a man who says he was rehabilitated. The outcomes of their investigations have different effects on each of the detectives. Diane and Bobby engage in some intense activities that cause them to believe they've made a baby.
