Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Working undercover for the Feds to nail Joey Salvo, Simone (Jimmy Smits) realizes that he can rely on absolutely no one when he is investigated by the IAB for his alleged criminal activities. Just shy of 30 years on the force, the gravely ill Gotteli (Carmine Caridi) "hijacks" and crashes a bus. Fancy (James McDaniel) tries to work out a deal whereby Gotelli can escape prosecution and take a medical retirement. A rape-murder occupies most of the other detectives. And Diane (Kim Delaney) is left out of the loop just when she needs moral support the most.
