"Untethered" is a seventh season episode of the television series Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Plot summary[edit]

In this episode, Frank Goren, who has unsuccessfully attempted to contact his brother Robert, convinces Eames to intercede on his behalf and convince Robert to talk to him. Robert, still angered by Frank's actions following their mother's death (Endgame), learns that he has a nephew Frank had not mentioned previously. He also learns that this nephew is being held in a prison in upstate New York, and that he claims to have witnessed the guards murder another prisoner and engage in cruel behavior. Robert agrees to do what he can to investigate.

Goren is rebuffed by Captain Ross, as he lacks jurisdiction. He decides to proceed nevertheless, filing off his fingerprints so they will not show he is a police officer. Keeping Eames in the loop, he gets himself arrested and sent to Tates Correctional Facility, the prison in question.
