In the bullpen at the 11th Precinct, Captain Dwyer welcomes Captain Gregson back to duty in front of his command. In Gregson's office, Detective Bree Novacek tells Gregson that she's leaving the NYPD. Gregson is concerned given Novacek's excellent record and that she's close to her pension. Ridley Dineen returns to his apartment with a bag full of cash and calls his girlfriend Janice over to celebrate. Janice arrives and finds a trail of cash leading to Ridley's bedroom. She finds him dead, laying half-naked in bed on top of many bills. At the Morgue while viewing Dineen's body, Detective Bell tells Holmes and Watson that Dineen robbed other criminals. Dr. Hawes notes Dineen died of an overdose, which he believes was fentanyl. Bell and Holmes argue whether Dineen was poisoned by touching fentanyl-laced cash while Bell reports that blood was found on Dineen's gun.

At the precinct, Janice tells Gregson and Watson that Dineen was given a tip about the cash being in a stash house, but doesn't know who gave it to him. She also says Dineen never used drugs. Bell and Holmes find nothing that Dineen's apartment but Holmes notices cat hair everywhere, but no signs of a cat. At the precinct, Watson reports to Gregson that no one turned up at any hospital with a gun wound from Dineen's weapon. Gregson tells her about Novacek leaving and asks Watson about Dwyer's conduct. Noting that Dwyer was on probation for a past sexual harassment complaint, Watson suggests Gregson confront Dwyer whether he harassed Novacek. At The Brownstone, Watson brings Holmes a toxicology report on Dineen which confirms he died from a fentanyl overdose. Noting that the blood on Dineen's weapon wasn't identified, Holmes sees from the report that Dineen used an inhaler for cat allergies and heads back to Dineen's apartment.
