POLICE LOG: Officers Andy McNally and Marlo Cruz are quarantined due to possible Anthrax exposure as their fellow officers hit the streets searching the source of a deadly tainted drug supply. Detailed report follows:
Gail wonders if her boyfriend and Andy have become a little too chummy after having spent all that time undercover together. She gets ticked when Nick makes her an omelet. Gail doesn’t do eggs. In other news, Dov gets a jealous when he catches Chloe flirting with a fireman at the Penny. So he asks her out on a date. He wonders if he did the right thing when he finds some pills for bipolar disorder. All indications are they belong to Chloe. The partners respond to a call where a distraught husband blames his wife’s ex-boyfriend for her current drug overdose.
Andy believes she can become friends with Marlo once the two of them get to know each other better. Her riding partner, however, would like to keep things professional. She adds that things are working for her and Sam because they keep an emotional distance. Andy can buy that. The partners check in on the ex-boyfriend who may have supplied the OD victim. He flips over a table covering both Andy and Marlo in a white powder before passing out. Frank lets them know that the guy’s heroin is contaminated with Anthrax.
The contaminated officers are ordered to sit tight until the HAZMAT team arrives. Andy is freaking out, but Marlo is trying to keep cool. Detective Jacob Blackstone (guest star Motive’s Louis Ferreira) is brought in as the lead on the case. He lets the team know that the dirty drugs have hit the streets which means more people will be infected. The infectious spores will kill users within 48 hours. A corpse that has been infected can also produce the spores. The race is on to find the source of the dirty drugs—something called Midnight Heroin.
The HAZMAT guy, Howard, lets Andy and Marlo know that they are going to be fine. He just needs to decontaminate them. That means they have to strip off all their clothes and empty out all their belongings. Marlo must fess up that the bipolar pills found back at the station belong to her. She says she’s been managing her problem ever since she had a few bad days at the academy. Andy lets her know that she’s never doubted Marlo’s ability to do her job. Nothing about that has changed. Sam doesn’t know about Marlo’s condition. Andy assures that he won’t find out from her.
