A whistleblower against a private college with questionable practices, the victim was killed on the eve of testimony that could have cost the university millions. When the social worker turns up dead, and an innocent man seems willing to take the fall for the murder, the detectives know there’s certainly mischief afoot.

Facing possible criminal prosecution from the District Attorney’s office, Holmes also must deal with the news that regardless of the DA’s decision both Holmes and Watson (Lucy Liu) days as official consultants for the NYPD have come to an end. While this is likely just a temporary bump in the road for the detectives it does introduce a new wrinkle to the series with Holmes and Watson likely taking non-department cases for the foreseeable future.
