The Major Crime Squad is criticised in the press for spending too much time and resources on a bombing investigation that is beginning to run out of steam. Jock wants to release the image of their suspect to the press, or at least the police but the legal department won't allow it for fear of compromising future witnesses.

Forensics meanwhile is tied up with a trio of murders for which Peter Faithfull has been working with Homicide and when word comes down that surveillance is being scaled back, Laz, Megan, and Blazo and forced to take on the job themselves during their off hours.
