At first, Eames informs Goren that the victim was her husband's partner on the night he was killed. As the detectives delve into the case, they interview the fallen officer's partner, who feels that the murder could be gang related. He also claims he can make an ID of the suspect if presented with the opportunity. When the main suspect is arrested, the witness detective identifies him as the shooter, but Goren discover the officer's early stages of macular degeneration, which makes his testimony inapplicable in a court of law. The case takes a major turn when a drug dealer is gunned down in a park. Eames recognizes him as the man who had testified against the shooter in her husband's murder trial 10 years ago. It is now clear that her own personal involvement in these murders is deeper than she originally presumed.
Meanwhile, Goren works tirelessly to examine forensic evidence and deduces that the man who was charged with killing Eames' husband could be innocent. His instincts tell him that a young man, infuriated by the incarceration of his innocent father, must have had a motive to take the law into his own hands.
