In the second episode of a three-part story arc, the investigation of the murder of civic leader Felix Wilson's (James Earl Jones) housekeeper yields two possible suspects -- one of them a member of Wilson's immediate family. The rest of the homicide unit begins to suspect that Giardello (Yaphet Kotto) and Pembleton (Andre Braugher) will go to any lengths to protect their friend Wilson from scandal, especially after he reveals that he was having an affair with the dead woman. In other developments, Falsone (Jon Seda) launches a potentially embarrassing investigation into the questionable circumstances surrounding the shooting of drug kingpin Luther Mahoney; and the management of the Camden Yards baseball park asks the squad to be discreet as they look into the murder of a Yankees fan during an Orioles-Athletics game -- a difficult task, inasmuch as there are some 48,000 "suspects."
