With Bayliss as primary, Pembleton takes his first case since returning to duty: the murders of a woman and her two sons in their own home. The detectives have different theories about the case, with Pembleton favoring the woman's boyfriend and Bayliss focusing on her ex-husband. They have trouble following each other's leads, but eventually work together in the Box to catch the killer. A witness at a drug dealer's shooting points Lewis and Munch to Junior Bunk, Luther Mahoney's nephew, who readily incriminates Mahoney but is then intimidated into recanting his statement. Brodie gets evicted from Kellerman's boat, then tries and fails to talk both Gee and Russert into giving him a room. Kellerman receives a grand jury summons and spends the night with Cox
