Fall Pilot Season 2011: Prime Suspect
Elsewhere, Jane is hitting up old pal Detective Evrard Velerio (Damon Gupton) -- the one male detective in the NYPD who will talk to her -- for the names and addresses of the victims that were attacked by the Madison Avenue Rapist so that she can pursue her theory that this guy and the Townhouse Killer are one and the same. While she's pursuing actual leads, "Beef Trust" members Duffy and Keating are involved in their own investigation with Sweeney to see who can finish off a bottle of whisky the fastest. Just as Keating is about to let loose with another pearl of wisdom, he grabs his chest and collapses to the floor. The other guys chuckle and then jump into action when they realize their friend isn't playing around. They beg him to "stay with us" as we go to commercial.
When we return, the mood is somber at the precinct as the detectives wait around for news. Duffy and Sweeney walk in with downcast faces and inform the squad that Keating died while being prepped for surgery. Jane's eyes dart towards the whiteboard, where her name is still at the top of the list. Cut to Sweeney's office, as she diplomatically tries to get the lieutenant to put her on the Townhouse Killer case. To say he reacts badly would be an understatement. "What kind of a wo-" he starts to say, before catching himself and beginning again "What kind of a person are you that you can come in here like this today and ask for that man's job?" He composes himself and tells her he hasn't decided anything, but will let her know as soon as he does. "Get out," he tells her and she wordlessly complies, picking up an empty glass from last night's carousing on her way out.
Now we're outdoors in a part of Brooklyn I'm proud to call my stomping grounds (Kensington/Ditmas Park represent!) and Jane climbs the steps to a house with her various rifle cases flung over her back. She greets her dad, Desmond (Peter Gerety) and hands him the guns to store away. They discuss Keating's death, establishing that Papa Timoney was a cop back in the day as well. She tells him about her charged encounter with Sweeney that morning and he quotes Curtis Mayfield back at her, "May not come when you want it, but when it does..." "It'll be right on time," she completes. Y'know, it's a shame Don't Forget The Lyrics isn't on anymore. These two would be a great team for that show.
