Storyline

The team investigates the 1983 murder of an openly gay man who had been extremely active in attempting to stop the spread of AIDS. This included likely burning down a bathhouse where gay men were transmitting the disease and threatening to out closeted homosexuals who did not agree to petition congress for a solution. The early investigation also discovers that he was estranged from his prominent father who had kicked him out of his brother's wedding for bringing his partner along to the reception.
