Bill Sutton comes up and introduces himself as the Dock’s Chief Executive Officer. He asks if they can cover up the body and says that it is horrible. Korsak asks if Patty Doyle has given any extortion threats lately and he says that there has been none because he has been trying to clean up the Docks and get away from Doyle’s grasp on them. Korsak tells Jane that they are not going to get anything from the Dock Workers because it is like the Brando movie. Korsak gives his best impersonation of Marlon Brando. Jane says that she will do the training just as long as Korsak doesn’t do that again. Later, Dr. Pike gets in and is complaining about Maura’s organization.

At the house, Maura is continuing her game of chess with Tommy when Paddy Doyle and his “associate” come in. The associate points a gun on them and says that he needs a doctor. She looks at the gun shot and says that she is going to need Tommy’s help. She asks why he got shot and Doyle says that it is business. She asks if Melissa was just “business” and he says that he didn’t kill the girl.
At the station, Barry tells Jane that he pulled the surveillance footage and sees Melissa leaving. Barry shows what he found on the SD card. Officer Duncan comes in with a battery and tells him to take it to Evidence. He sets it down and tells her that he isn’t going to do it for homicide.

Doyle gets up to leave and he says that he doesn’t kill women or children. He says that he is being framed. Jane gets in and gets them untied. Jane says that someone must have given Doyle up. Tommy says that Doyle has a heart because he loves Maura. Korsak says that none of those dead under Doyle’s hand were men. Jane says that he is not usually this messy and says that it would be brilliant if someone did. Officer Duncan comes in and she is nice to him. He smiles and says that he can take it to evidence. He leaves and Barry says that it is love. Inside the things that Duncan brought, they find a modifier. Maura comes in and questions Pike’s autopsy and says that she needs him to look at Melissa’s mouth. He says that he released it to the funeral home. She snaps at him and says that he better get it or she will send him to a place where he will not like it. He obliges.

Jane says that Doyle still could have told Ray to take Melissa out. Jane gets a message from Barry and tells Maura to come with her.
They go to the other room and Barry says that he pulled off the information on the SD card. They watch a video and see that it wasn’t Doyle who put out the hit, but Bill Sutton, the Chief Executive.
