In the meantime, a father's suicide accidentally kills his son as well.


Arc Advancement


  • Leo's old partner recalls a girl went missing right across from where Josephs lived. Following up, Dominic learns from his mother that her husband was out in the garage that night and it's surmised that Charlie discovered it and forensics later dig up the girl's body. This is believed to be enough to tie to Josephs and charge him.
  • Leo tells Goose about Josephs killing his sister and that he's under surveillance. The next day, Leo claims to have hurt his hand changing a flat tire and Josephs's dead body is fished out of the river with bruises and cuts on his face.


  • Kosmo notices Mick is still wearing his wedding ring. When she suggests it's sending a message to his subconscious, he claims it's "Don't be the same fool twice."
  • Dominic asks Regan what's going to happen to Leo, adding that if Leo's to ride out his time on a desk, he could use a good investigator.
  • Dominic calls Vera, only to have her husband pick up.
