Lt. Bosslady walks into her apartment and greets her turtle, Arlo. She asks him if he wants to share her Lucky Charms for dinner, and then offers to tell him about her day as she pours herself a glass of wine. She picks up the turtle and her cereal and heads out of the kitchen. In the bathroom, she takes off her jewelry. Just when I'm thinking, "So is the point of this to show us that she's kind of a loser?" she opens the shower curtain, only to find a man standing there. It's Pesco! That is like my biggest fear. I always karate kick the shower curtain when I'm home alone and I go in the bathroom. Pesco sprays something in her face, and she falls to the floor. He makes a comment about most home accidents occurring in the bathroom. He steps out of the shower, and we see that he's wearing booties. He drags her body away, and the camera focuses in on the note card he left -- the same as the ones he was leaving before, the pink envelopes with the symbol on the front.
At the police station, Stella (Stella!) asks Frank about the crime scene in Lt. Bosslady's apartment. Frank (who is oddly wearing a bright purple turtleneck sweater) says that they didn't find any evidence, but Stu (Stu!) is going over the scene. Frank slams his papers down on the copier. Goddamn copier! Stella assures Frank that they'll find something. The elevator doors open, and a short guy stomps out. Frank thanks Short Guy, who we discover is Captain Ruiz, for coming in on his vacation. Ruiz is all business and pretty much ignores Frank's small talk. Frank runs down the status of the investigation and recaps what happened last week, in case you missed that episode. Frank, thankfully, is much less wordy than I am when it comes to recapping. Frank says that Pesco leaves cards with clues inside at every crime scene, so they brought in a consultant to help with the investigation. Ruiz has heard of John Doe, but doesn't seem too impressed. Stu shows up with the news that the only evidence they found in Lt. Bosslady's apartment was a single footprint. Frank finds that odd, since Pesco usually doesn't leave any evidence. Stu says the print fits Pesco's profile, so they're going to try to find manufacturers and distributors. Ruiz asks why they need John Doe. Frank says that John has "enhanced deductive powers." Ruiz points out that Pesco posed as a victim and "played [them] the whole time," and that John might be doing the same thing. Frank is sure that's not the case.
