A high-profile divorce lawyer is found dead in his own swimming pool, and a man claiming to be his son shows up in the homicide office with evidence to incriminate himself. Pembleton and Bayliss soon find themselves in a face-off with the National Security Agency and a second suspect whose sudden confession seems a little too convenient. Meanwhile, Brodie tries to toughen himself up, Munch buys a VCR of highly questionable origin, and Kellerman tries to unmask the "Lunch Bandit" who has been stealing everyone's food from the office refrigerator.
