Dante assigns as many of his officers as possible to keep an eye on a shady arms dealer who may be peddling his wares in New York. Pezzini protests the assignment, citing her already overflowing homicide workload, but Dante insists. Gabriel comes to Pezzini with word that one of his best friends has been killed, but she can find no evidence that the deceased – a comic book artist with a drug habit and more than a few enemies – did anything more than commit suicide. The arms dealer surveillance assignment quickly blows up as the man in question is gunned down by a sniper with a powerful weapon. Not long afterward, Ian Nottingham – Kenneth Irons’ hired hand (and hired gun) – turns himself in to Sara, claiming to have been the shooter.
