D. Sloan is terribly nervous about an IRS audit, sees 'sloppiness' everywhere, and leaves a 'death threat' on his accountant Ernie Pitt's answering machine, desperate for help. When Mark sneaks out from Agent Gretchen McCord's first interview for a 'medical emergency' he thus ends up bent over Pitt's corpse, stabbed to death. LAPD Detective Claire Van Sickle grants him no favors as colleague Steve stood her up a while ago. The two harpies team up to 'coordinate their attack' on Mark. While investigating -with Jack and Amanda in pretense characters- Pitt's heiress and the other threatening clients, martial arts master Nick Cove and Attorney Avery Decker, who specializes in setting up insurance fraud with false diagnoses, he is attacked by the real killer together with McCord...

The principal from Forrest Gump is in this one.

Sam Anderson features in this IRS-themed episode. I remember him as the school principal in Forrest Gump who banged Forrest Gump's mother played by Sally Field.

Also featuring in this episode is the dignified Holland Taylor, whose current partner is Sarah Paulson.

Here Dr Sloan is a bit upset and agitated about the upcoming IRS audit, and he's accused of murdering his accountant. Thankfully Dr Sloan is cleared of the crime by the end of the episode (relief). Anyway, complicating matters is Steve Sloan's former romance with a cop, who happens to be investigating the murder.
