Jane and Maura investigate the murder of 25 year-old Victoria Green who was found posed her on a bus stop bench and made up to look like a toy doll. They first suspect Herbert Buckley who was recently released from prison and has a fetish for dolls but that proves to be a dead end. It's only the first of several murders and it seems that the killer is finding the women on the public transit system. Maura finds a sliver of ash wood in the first victim's scalp but the blood on it is 20 years old. It proves to be the vital clue that leads them to the killer. Meanwhile, Korsak find a well-trained service dog who turns out to belong to someone at the veterans center where Jane's friend Casey works. Maura returns the dog and learns Casey's secret. It's left to Jane's mother to get Jane and Casey together again. Written by
