The strangulation death of a woman in a parking garage stirs up childhood memories for Munch, since she, her ex-husband, and her current boyfriend all attended high school with him. As he and Kellerman work the case, which shows connections with a series of recent attacks on other women, the Jewish rituals surrounding the burial cause him to think about his own lapse of faith. After Pembleton's interrogation skills fail him in the Box, he looks in vain for comfort in a dinner with Bayliss and attendance at morning Mass, then goes on a call with Bayliss.
