Anyhoo, it's quitting time and Jane heads back to the home she shares with Matt. Instead of a relaxing night in, they're meeting with his ex-wife to discuss why she's uncomfortable with their 6-year-old son staying over. Ex-Wifey ticks through a list of things wrong with the apartment -- an unmounted TV, a kitchen water tap with an instant boil option -- before interrogating Jane about where she keeps her gun when she's off duty. In response, Jane leads her to a locked closet door where she keeps an entire arsenal of rifles. Ex-Wifey takes one horrified looks and flees the room, while Matt's face falls as he realizes he won't be cooking dinner for his kid anytime soon.
Meanwhile, Keating and Duffy meet with Sweeney and fill him in on why they like Hull as the woman's murderer. The lieutenant pulls a "Not sure I agree with you 100% on your police work there, Lou" routine and blames them for pissing Jane off enough to come to him and piss him off. The guys dredge up the bureau chief business again and Sweeney doesn't deny the rumors that the two were an item but insists that Jane got her current job on the strength of her work solving "the murder in the park." Costello -- that's the offending bureau chief, who we'll inevitably be meeting at some point this season (Dominic West, call your agent) -- had nothing to do with it, he swears. Keating and Duffy aren't convinced. "She an empty suit," Duffy says, gesturing with his finger so we know he's serious.
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.
