Detectives Briscoe and Logan have a rough shift when they catch a series of unrelated murders. All Briscoe hopes for is that he'll get out of the shop to make to the Knicks/Rockets basketball game that evening. The first killing is the shooting of man in a parked car. Later in the day there's a virtually identical shooting and they fear they may have a serial killer on their hands. In their next case, they arrest a woman who has cut off her cheating husband's genitals. The third murder involves a violent drug user. After they make their arrests it turns out that one of them is innocent. That person won't make it out of Riker's Island jail alive. Written by

The normal pattern is broken by showing the detectives as they work a shift involving four separate homicides (including one they roll up on while working another) vs. the usual crime, arrest, and prosecution. No court scenes are shown- although ADA Kincaid, EADA Stone, and DA Schiff are shown in some scenes. See more
