Synopsis by Hal Erickson
NYPD Blue returns after a five-week hiatus with Detective Baldwin Jones (Henry Simmons) under intense scrutiny of both the IAB and the media. It all started during a shoot-out with a suspect, in which an innocent bystander, a 13-year-old teenager, was killed. Jones' future looks bleak until evidence reveals that the "innocent" victim may have been anything but. And in the aftermath of his father's suicide, John Clark Jr. (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) is unable to control his grief, which spills over into his relationship with Rita Ortiz (Jacqueline Obradors) -- who is having enough trouble investigating an unsavory case of improper police procedure.
