Toby and Oz arrive at a homicide scene where a Russian Consul General is found dead and the diplomat's middle son, Dmitry, confesses to his murder. When McCluskey arrives to take over the investigation, Toby reveals she may need more than a simple confession to close the case. Despite Dmitry's confession and representation by lawyer-brother Yuri, Toby and McCluskey believe someone else may have been present at the murder scene, and discover Dmitry has a 14-year-old younger autistic brother, Pavel. In order to get to the truth, Toby and McCluskey must navigate their way through the Volkov family secrets while Toby attempts to communicate with Pavel through his obsession with his toy trains, believing it is the key to solving the murder. A new gurney is tested at EMS after complaints of back injuries but fails its field test after Oz apparently injures his back employing it. Written by Shaftesbury Films/edited by statmanjeff
