Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The recently demoted Dornan (Richard Gant) returns to the 15th in search of a stash of illegal weapons. This leads to a racial-political crisis, culminating in interdepartmental ill will and a gunshot wound for Lt. Fancy (James McDaniel). On another front, a mother positively identifies the body of her daughter, found in a ditch -- but this turns out to be part of an elaborate scam when the "dead" girl shows up very much alive. And, in her continuing efforts to console herself to Bobby Simone's death, Diane (Kim Delaney) pays a visit to Henry (Willie Garson), unofficial caretaker of Bobby's pigeons. Former recurring actor Bill Brochtrup becomes a regular in the role of gay Anti-Crime Unit assistant John Irvin.
