Cop killer Hal Lockwood, whom Beckett visited unsuccessfully in jail for months hoping for a lead in her mother Johanna's closed murder case, is released by a faked order into the general population, where he slices rogue cop Gary McCallister's throat, then is helped by fake cops to escape. Beckett, his likely next target, receives warnings from her father, Montgomery and Castle. Much helped by Ryan and Esposito, the duo work out that there must be a police accomplice and/or mastermind controlling Chuck Ryker, the debt-ridden corrupt jailer who was found murdered at his home.

I've already lost my wife over this. I've already lost... Now, look... it took me years, but I've made my peace with that. But Katie? She won't listen to me, and she won't back down. Not unless someone can convince her that her life is worth more than her mother's death. Look, she cares about you, Rick. And unless you're a lot dumber than you look, I know you care about her. Don't let her throw her life away.
