A street junkie is found shot to death on the grounds of an Upper East Side private school and it turns out to be the son of a multi- millionaire Henry Woronicz. It turns out this kid had some bad substance abuse problems and was thrown out of his plush existence years ago by his father and told to clean up his act.
This kid truly hated his father and that's the key to this whole episode which involves him helping a young girl prove that she is his half sister as a result of an indiscretion by Woronicz years ago. It all ends quite tragically for the principal players in this story.
But I have to single out a performance by Kelly Cole as a junkie and a confidential informant for narcotics detective Fernando Lopez. Lopez comes into the picture when Briscoe and Green get his pager number off a cellphone they retrieve from the deceased's affects and Lopez in turn identifies a possible witness to what might have happened.
The scene with Jerry Orbach, Jesse L. Martin, Fernando Lopez and Kelly Cole in a restaurant is absolutely priceless.
