Synopsis by Hal Erickson
While John (Bill Brochtrup) is in Africa with his new beau, the squad's temporary PAA is part-time screenwriter Dave Moore (Dan Bucatinsky), whose presence arouses the muse deep within Det. Greg Medavoy (Gordon Clapp). Valerie (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon) waits an inordinately long time to inform Baldwin (Henry Simmons) that she has miscarried. After their passionate kiss, Andy (Dennis Franz) goes out of his way to avoid Connie (Charlotte Ross). A drunken Don (Stan Cahill) humiliates his wife, Rita (Jacqueline Obradors), in public. And back on the job, a rookie cop inadvertently tampers with evidence, a perp Andy (Dennis Franz) brought down 20 years earlier seems to be leading an exemplary life, and several skeletons are revealed in the closet of a saintly doctor who has been murdered.
