Nick Russo is found dead in alley with gunshot wounds to the chest and heroin in his pocket. His dad is Daniel Russo (guest star Michael Nouri), a ruthless mob man from New York. BANG! BANG! BANG! Shots blast into the alley. Tommy tackles Megan to remove her from harm’s way. It’s a brave move, but Megan is ticked that he ruined her snazzy outfit. Adam is hit. He’s wearing his vest, so he’ll be okay. Daniel Russo bursts in the Medical Examiner’s office. He promises Megan that the next body on her table will be the man who killed his son.
Tommy takes out one of Daniel Russo’s bodyguards to have a chat with the mob man. These two go way back. Tommy was never able to lock up Russo while he was in New York. He advises his old nemesis to get out of his new town. As for the case, a viral video shows the face of the person who fired at the cops in the alley. The shooter claims he was high when he fired the shots. He swears he didn’t shoot Nick, but says the real killer’s car dinged something in the alley as it sped off. The roof shooter is transferred out of the station. BANG! BANG! A mystery gunman shoots the guy dead in what looks a lot like a mob hit.
Philly’s top defense attorney, Martin Davis, lets Tommy know that he’s to stay away from his client. He also lets Adam know that he’s glad to see he’s okay. Later, Daniel Russo is interrogated for the shooting of the initial suspect. He clues Adam in about his partner’s trouble past on the NYPD. Russo also lets it drop that his attorney just happens to be Adam’s dad. Before Tommy has time to digest this, Megan storms in to let Russo know that he shot the wrong man. Tommy needs her to find proof that the slippery mob man was behind the hit so he doesn’t get away with murder. Again!
Michael Avery runs a boxing gym where he works with former gang members. He also had a relationship with Nick Russo. Avery says the victim was looking to get out of the mob life. Tommy realizes this guy is a dead end. He offers Megan a ride home and talks her into joining him for dinner on the way. As it turns out, he made reservations at the restaurant. Megan is ticked to learn he set this whole thing up. Tommy says he only did it because he knew she wouldn’t accept an offer for a pre-planned dinner date. He was right about that one.
