After a man is found dead in the apartment of one of Brodie's graduate school classmates, Munch is ready to write it off as a suicide, but Brodie refuses to let him drop the matter. Munch and Howard investigate further and, with Brodie's help, lay a trap that exposes the classmate as a murderer. Kellerman and Bayliss uncover the connection between a pair of bombing deaths - the trial of the man who killed the Korean shopkeeper in "Have a Conscience" - and race to stop the perpetrator from completing a campaign of revenge against those responsible for his acquittal. Marriage counseling for Pembleton and Mary only leads to worsening arguments between them, and after he misses Olivia's baptism, Mary takes her and moves out.
