- In the beginning
was the Word.

And the Word was with God
and the Word was God.

So, from the starting gun,
it's all about the Word.

All about communication.

Couple million millennia go by,
along comes man.

God wants somebody
to chat with.

Turns out man wants
more than that.

Man wants the gossip page
and phone sex,

re-runs of "Seinfeld,"
and auctions in cyberspace.

Man's got his own plan
as far as communication goes

and the inventions
to see it through.

And poor God.

- He's still got no one
to talk to.

- He pulled out a gun...

- Shot Said dead.

- Your press pass says that
your name is Lemuel Idzik.

Is that, in fact,
your real name?

like that?



- I'm Detective McGorry,

I need to ask you
some questions.

- I did it.

I killed Kareem Said.

What more is there?

- You'd be willing
to sign a confession?

- Yes.

You write out the words
and I'll sign it

- Leo, we just got an inquiry
from a local TV station

wanting verification
of Said's death.

- Shit!
How'd the word get out so fast?

- I guess the Muslims
must have contacted them.

- Well, don't call
the station back just yet.

- They said they're
sending over a news truck.

- Well, don't let them

Have them park in that empty lot
across Monroe Boulevard.

- Well, that was
relatively easy.

- Did Idzik say
why he killed Said?

- No.

No, he just kept talking

about nightfall,

I'm gonna
take him downtown.

Mayor Loewen, Harrison Beecher,

in a matter of weeks.

- There doesn't seem
to be a link

between any of these deaths.

- Is that supposed
to make me feel better?

- Do you have any suspects
for the Wilson Loewen case?

- There were 11 men
on the ward that night.

All of them are suspects.

The difficulty is
narrowing the list.

- Look, just pick someone,

- Governor, you're not actually
suggesting that I do that.

- I'm suggesting that you do
your job, McGorry, and fast,

before I tell
the police commissioner

to put another Sherlock
in charge.

- So, Detective,
now what?

- Beats me.

Easy answer is that a black man
murdered Loewen...

only my gut tells me
that's not what happened.

This isn't about prejudice.

This is personal.

Somebody hired somebody
to kill Loewen.

- Yeah, but who?
And why?

[typewriter keys clacking]

[typewriter bell dings]

- The printing press
changed the world forever,

and for the better.

Bibles got printed in vernacular
rather than Latin,

bringing God out
of the Dark Ages,

out of dark corners,

to ordinary folks
like you and me.

But imagine old Gutenberg
at a newsstand today.

Think he'd be proud
of paving the way for "Juggs,"

"High Times,"
and "Soldier of Fortune"?

- Toby, you really think
there's a chance,

I mean,
with this eyewitness?

- Well, you see,
he's the key.

I kept wondering why
Jerry Heekin waited four years

to contact the authorities,

and then the law firm
did some digging--

- Heekin was caught
dealing crack.

Yeah, your dad told me.
- Last year.

And he was arrested
for the third time.

Three strikes, right?

So, hoping for a deal
he goes to the FBI,

says he saw you dump
Bryce Tibbets' body.

Now whether he did or not
is immaterial

because I think your pal,
Agent Taylor,

helped him fill in
most of the details.

In Heekin's initial conversation
with the FBI...

he doesn't say anything
about the flashlight.

Only afterwards,
to the D.A.,

does he add the flashlight
to the story,

which is bullshit, right?

Because you would've
noticed somebody

shining a flashlight on you,

especially if you're dumping
a dead body.

- Christ almighty, this is what
I kept saying to McClain.

- Well, the bottom line is,

he can cut a deal with the D.A.
pending your conviction,

and because of that we can imply

that Heekin made up
the whole story

or was given the account
by Agent Taylor.

Unreliable witness testimony
plus prosecutorial misconduct

equals an overturned verdict.

- That's beautiful.

- Can you girls
keep the giggling down?

- Yeah, I'd better
get over the courthouse.

on Carlos Martinez.

You'll be glad to know
that he didn't die

of methylene chloride poisoning.

He suffocated,
or I should say

he was suffocated
by someone else.

- What?

- I guess that's
one less plaintiff for you

- You still pissed off at me

for not sending Martinez
to Benchley Memorial?

- Yes.

But not half as much
as I am at myself.

You know what's
really disgusting about this?

I'm relieved that a prisoner
was killed in his sleep

instead of dying of what might
have been a preventable death.

Now, I'm not guilty.

Now, I'm just horrified to find
myself thinking this way.

killing Martinez?

this rash of murders

with the methylene chloride

promising to release
the autopsy,

the media is not
gonna let this go.

They're gonna scream
for an investigation.

And I need to learn
every detail I can.

- Okay, sorry.

- You told Officer Murphy
that you visited Martinez

just before he died.

- Yeah.

Martinez sent word
that he wanted to see me

'cause he was desperate
to confess that Morales

was the one who ordered him
to cut my tendon.

anything suspicious?

Any threat
from the other patients?

- No.

did the deed, sir.

Take the fucking

- I didn't even see Martinez

the night he died.

- Oh, Jesus, Dave.

- You and I both know

I simply took Martinez's death
as an opportunity

cutting him up...
- Was totally justified.

- No, because we had no proof.
