Meanwhile, Costas lends a big assist to Russell and Kirkendall in their investigation of a teenage girl's rape. 

Tuesday, October 27 1998 - "Cop In a Bottle"

The detectives of the 15th precinct investigate a double homicide involving one of their own, an alcoholic cop who seems to have done the right thing, but can't remember key details about the incident. The situation becomes more precarious as the cop's lieutenant tries to use the incident to get him kicked off the force.

Tuesday, November 10 1998 - "Numb & Number"

Sipowicz, Medavoy and Martinez try to unravel the confusing information given by the suspect in the murder of a Pakistani man, who was found semi-naked in a park. Meanwhile, Simone's deteriorating health continues to worry Russell and leads Sipowicz into conflict with everyone, including Costas. 

Tuesday, November 17 1998 - "Brother's Keepers"

Simone languishes in the hospital awaiting a new heart, Sipowicz spirals out of control and Russell hangs on by a threat in this intensely taut episode. Beginning with the eerie image of an enshrouded Simone and ending with Fancy soliciting a cop's young wife for her husband's heart, "Brother's Keepers" deals with the squad's investigation of an old woman's brutal murder while they struggle to keep their fears and frustrations for Simone in check.

Tuesday, November 24 1998 - "Hearts and Souls"

As Russell fumbles with Simone's shirt buttons the day he is to be discharged from the hospital, the swarthy, strapping detective looks like a frail and frightened little boy, yellow fluid oozing from beneath his starched white shirt. The squad's nervous anticipation of their colleague's release then turns to devastation when it becomes clear that an infection jeopardizes Simone's ten-day-old heart transplant.

Totally distraught, Sipowicz is thrown by the unexpected appearance of his intoxicated ex-wife, who timidly asks for his help on a DWI charge. Overcome with grief about the past--and the present--Sipowicz expresses remorse about his treatment of Katie and confides in Costas, "my new friend is gonna die . . . he told me in his eyes."

Russell clashes with Dr. Swan--who recommends brain surgery after Simone experiences a seizure--and asks for Dr. Carreras to visit. After sharing his grim prognosis with Russell, Carreras assures Simone that he understands the signal Simone will give when "it's time . . . to stop fighting."

In a half-dream, half-reality sequence, Simone lies on a rooftop amid his beloved pigeons, murmuring remembrances of parochial school and the job while Fancy, Martinez, Medavoy and Kirkendall silently and tearfully bid him goodbye. As the son he never had reaches out for him, Simone's hand is squeezed by Sipowicz, who promises to take care of Russell. Russell remains beside her failing husband as he removes the oxygen tube from his face, gives the signal and smiles one last time.

Danny Sorenson transfers from Narcotics to the 15th Precinct's detective squad.

Meanwhile, Costas has misgivings about the accuracy of the past conviction of a teenager and asks a reluctant Sipowicz for help.

Tuesday, December 8 1998 - "Czech Bouncer"

Sipowicz mentors Sorenson when the latter goes overboard with a suspect in the killing of two elderly gift shop owners; and Russell and Kirkendall investigate the murder of a strip club patron and are shocked to learn that they know someone who is working there as a dancer.

Sipowicz and Sorenson are beyond frustrated when the FBI and Internal Affairs show up and meddle with their investigation of a family of dirty cops who may have been involved in a robbery-homicide. Meanwhile, Medavoy chafes at being the butt of one of Sipowicz's jokes; and Diane, still consumed with grief, reaches out for help.

Sipowicz is eager to testify in the Cullinan murder trial, but Costas worries that Sipowicz is no match for defense attorney James Sinclair.
