Recap

The episode begins with ADA Barba rehearsing with Detective Cassidy, who will be testifying in the Bart Ganzel case. A woman comes to the station and tells Nick that she was raped by a cop. The woman is claiming Cassidy raped her when he was working undercover four years ago. She never saw him again until she recognized his photo in the papers about the Ganzel trial. Munch feels a woman showing up and claiming something like this, right at the time when Cassidy is going to testify against Ganzel, is too much of a coincidence. ..
