Memphis Beat: At the River

The squad is plunged into a case involving the death of an admired police officer who may have been involved with a white supremacist group. The case hits home for Dwight, who relates to the son of the officer left behind. It also introduces Dwight to Claire Ryan, a tough investigator from Internal Affairs. Meanwhile, Rice starts riding Whitehead about taking the lieutenant's exam, but her reasons for wanting him to pass aren't exactly a vote of confidence.

She says that she wants Dwight to work with Internal Affairs on this and make sure that they honor Don. Whitehead takes offense and tells her that she can’t split them up.

Dwight tells Whitehead that it is nothing and says that they just have to find the killer...
