Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Henry Simmons makes his first series appearance as Det. Baldwin Jones, the replacement for recently promoted James Martinez. A former hate-crimes officer, Jones finds that his training comes in handy as he and new partner Medavoy (Gordon Clapp) track down a perpetrator -- while Lt. Fancy (James McDaniel), skipper of the 15th precinct, broods over the fact that Jones was added to the squad without his approval. Elsewhere, Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) discovers that a female cop who was murdered while off duty was having an affair with her partner, and Diane (Kim Delaney) agonizes over telling her partner, Jill (Andrea Thompson), that Jill's ex-husband, Don, a drug trafficker, has been reported killed.
