    Who Let the Dogs Out?

    When a jogger stumbles across a woman and her dog who have been brutally attacked and killed in the park, the detectives are called to the scene and determine that the victims were mauled by an animal, possibly another dog. Although they search the park with no luck, they are determined to find the dog, and hold its owner responsible for the deaths. But it is tough to track down the animal, until another innocent victim is attacked. They find the dog, a pit bull, and are finally able to sedate and capture it. The dog has a chip implanted in its ear, which allows them to trace it to a breeding farm. But the breeder says he sold the dog to a company in Brooklyn, along with several others. They find a warehouse where dogs have been tortured and "bred" for fighting, but now all the dogs are dead. Someone has drugged them all.

    A man is found stabbed to death in an alley. His hands reveal his profession, he shined shoes. With no identification, it's difficult to figure out who this man is, but autopsy reports show he's in his mid 50's and that his liver is shot as he's clearly been quite ill. Meanwhile, a Chinese gang member is brought in as a possible suspect when a customer of the victim recalls that the man had been roughed up recently by some of the Chinese gangsters. The gang member admits to beating him up in the past but denies the murder. However he does provide some clues. He claims he saw John Doe with two other middle aged white men, getting into a dark blue 4-door sedan Mercedes. Eventually, Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) figure out who their victim is, he's Joseph Eastman and he lived in poverty in Queens. They find an unopened box in his apartment; it has his Bronze Star inside from his tour of duty in Vietnam.

    Possession

    Virginia Boone looks like a bag lady but lives in a penthouse with a spectacular view on the Upper East Side. She is found stabbed to death inside her apartment building, but robbery is not the motive. Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) talk to a tenant in her building, Stefan Havel (Conrad John Schuck), but he doesn't provide much information. They also talk to Martha Taylor (Linda Thorson), who owns the pricey custom dress shop on the ground floor. Taylor, it turns out, not only lives in the building but owns it as well. Virginia worked as a school cafeteria worker and had very little money. Her rent, $362 a month, was unheard of, even though it was rent controlled because she had lived there since 1969. Rents for an apartment like hers in that area run between $6,000 and $8,000 a month. Now the Detectives suspect someone killed her to get her out of the apartment.

    Formerly Famous

    Johnny Vega (Gary Busey) used to be a huge singer, and he still gets recognized on the street. He is a regular at Noonan's, a local Irish pub, and has been patronizing the establishment every Friday night for the past ten years. After a routine dinner with his wife Mary Ann, he comes rushing into the restaurant and tells the owner his wife has been shot. Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) are on the scene and piece together the timeline. Vega and his wife had left the restaurant around 9:00, then Vega came back to switch a bet he had placed and left again, only to return a few minutes later in shock, saying his wife had been shot. He had a panic attack and was taken home. Briscoe and Green go to Vega's house to question him and find his manager, Arthur Cahill (Joe Piscopo), and grown children, Peter (David Allan Case) and Jason, visiting the panicked singer. Their theory is that Mary Ann was mugged while Vega went back to switch the bet.

    The Fire This Time

    An apartment building, under construction at the former site of a well-liked community park, is ablaze. The charred naked body of a woman is found in one of the back apartments. Arson is suspected because of the chemicals found at the scene. Conventional wisdom is the arsonist didn't know someone was in the building, but now this is a murder investigation. It takes awhile, but they finally ID the victim - Karen Fried, a local elementary school teacher. She was last seen with Eric Shollar (Michael Leydon Campbell), the father of one of her students, but he's married and hesitant to talk to the cops when they approach him at home. Eric admits that he and Karen were having an affair and he brought her to the building under construction. He claims she was waiting for him while he ran out to buy condoms and the building blew before he got back.

One of the victims liked to party and was actually scoring heroin for a friend earlier that night, but those leads also turn up empty.

    Equal Rights

    A well-dressed businessman is found dead near a ferry landing. Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) have a tough time identifying him because his wallet has been stolen, but a rare cigar leads them to a cigar bar where he apparently spent his last hours. Through a credit card receipt, they learn the victim is John Cooper, an analyst at Dreisner Investments. At first, they think the killer could have been one of his ferry buddies with whom he had a poker group. John owed one of them, Peter O'Mann (Lawrence David Kopp), fifty thousand dollars. O'Mann admits he met John the night of the murder, but claims he cannot disclose their conversation because he was John's attorney and their meeting is protected under attorney-client privilege.

    Slaughter

    A young man is found stabbed to death outside a pizza parlor, with no identification. Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) soon learn, however, that he is Andrew Hatcher, an NYU student. Hatcher's grieving parents claim they got a call from him on his cell phone hours after the estimated time of death, but it turns out someone else made the call. Tracing the cell phone, they find a drug dealer named Jimmy Gaines (Gregory Russell Cook), who has Andrew's watch too. But he insists that he found Andrew's possessions in a dumpster. The police then find a blue denim shirt with blood on it nearby, but there is no trace of Jimmy's DNA or prints on it, so he is in the clear. They did find bovine blood on the shirt though, and the M.E reports that Andrew was stabbed with a six inch butcher's knife. They deduce that the killer worked in the nearby meat packing district.

    Dazzled

    Kate Hollis Snyder, an attractive 28-year-old woman, has plunged to her death. Her new husband, Don Snyder (William Atherton), is a powerful and rich businessman. Kate lived with Don and his two children on the Upper East Side but kept her old apartment to use as an art studio, which became the scene of the crime. Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) realize Kate's death was no accident, she was pushed. After finding out that Kate was spending her new husband's money to renovate their apartment and hired her ex-boyfriend as the contractor, they question her husband. He initially gives an alibi but then admits that he was at the apartment the night of her death, but swears he didn't see her. Since his DNA doesn't match the perpetrators DNA from under her fingernails, he's off the hook. Next they question Gary Phillips (Joseph Murray), the contractor and her ex-boyfriend. His DNA is under her fingernails, but he says it's from an encounter they had earlier in the day when he tried to kiss her. Then the medical examiner makes an important discovery that changes the direction of the investigation.

    Foul Play

    Mike Drucker, a private investigator, is found shot to death in a vacant apartment in Washington Heights. Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) look at his cases to see who might want him dead. Initially they suspect a real estate magnate whose wife hired Drucker to uncover her husband's unreported net worth, but the husband has an alibi and is off the hook. Next they make a connection between Drucker and a local businessman, Frank Leahy (Jon Seda), who runs a local little-league all-star baseball team. The coach of a Westchester-based team had hired Drucker to check into Leahy's team because their star first baseman, Ramiro Benitez, looks a lot older than 12. They are on to something.

    Attorney Client

    Marjorie Jensen, the well-to-do wife of successful defense attorney Harold Jensen, is shot point blank in her car as she's leaving her apartment building. At first, Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) think it could have been a car-jacking but only the hood ornament was stolen. Because of her husband's line of work, the next concern is that since the car has tinted windows, the killer may have accidentally hit the wrong target. The Detectives investigate some of Harold's (Peter Friedman) more dangerous clients, and his assistant points them toward Leon Griggs (Lord Jamar), a client who went to jail and who sent Harold a slew of threatening letters. But Leon has an alibi.

    Oxymoron

    The body of a scantily clad woman is found on the Upper East Side. Because of her attire, it is initially presumed that she could be a high-class escort, especially after promiscuous behavior is uncovered by the medical examiner. The detectives uncover a seven-digit number on a slip of paper inside her pocket, which turns out to be a hack driver's ID. They track down the cab driver who claims he dropped the woman off on 60th St. and there was a black Infiniti waiting for her. But she died 33 blocks uptown. The Detectives retrace her steps and discover she had been at a "swingers" party where she got into a fight with another woman, Alexandra Shabtai (Caprice Benedetti). Alexandra works at a nightclub and ID's the dead woman as Eliza Glaser, a cosmetic dermatologist who was providing her with the narcotic Oxycodone.

    Patriot

    A tenement building explodes and the lone victim is Joseph Haden. The building was rent controlled and there had been a tenant strike, so the police initially suspect arson. But the landlord doesn't have insurance, ruling out their arson theory, and the medical examiner discovers that Haden's neck was broken and he was tied up before the explosion happened. Trying to figure out Haden is even more difficult. He didn't appear to have a family or a girlfriend and never got any substantial mail. He worked at the Jiffy Job service station making minimum wage, yet had $90,000 in the bank. Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) do some more digging and find out that Haden was using an alias, and his real name was Juseff Haddad.
