In  last night’s episode the team finds the remains of a body that appears to have been killed in his own bathroom, but when the homeowner shows up alive and well, that leads the detectives to having to find out who the murderer is and who the victim is. Meanwhile, Laura and Jake try out “nesting” as a solution to fix their shared-custody struggles. The episode starts off with the victim, Mark's, neighbor finding his skeleton body in a bathtub of blood. Laura and Jake are struggling to figure out how to share custody of their sons.  Laura suggests "nesting," and that if Jake wants to see the boys on the weekends then he will have to come to her house. When Laura goes to investigate the medical examiner says the body was dissolved in sulfuric acid and it's going to take weeks to determine who exactly the person is unless he can salvage the teeth for dental records. Billy and Laura question the neighbor, Mrs. Greenburg, who tells them that the last time she saw Mark was on Friday because he takes out her trash. She also tells them that he was a hermit, who worked at home. He met a woman name Corinne and he began to become more social and would throw parties.  The DNA examiner comes into the living room and tells the detectives that there were multiple DNA samples in the bed. They are able to find a fingerprint on a knife in Mark’s apartment, the ID belongs to a man named Carlo Carelli. Back at the station, Jake wonders why Max rearranged the office desks. Max tells him it's a feng shui thing...and also Laura doesn't want to sit next to Jake. Laura and Billy head to Carlo’s apartment where he is having a party full of half-naked people dancing.  Just brings back memories of college, doesn't it? When questioned,  Carlo insists that he doesn’t remember Mark, he says he runs a party business called a “Very Chubby Affair.” Carlo says that he doesn’t know Mark, he just rented Mark’s apartment on a website called “NY Pad Exchange.” Who does that? That just seems like a bad idea. Anyway, they hack into the NY Pad Exchange website and learn that he has rented his apartment 84 times. The last person to rent his apartment was a porn star named Cody Roberts. Laura and Billy head to back to Mark’s apartment and searches for evidence of Cody Roberts. While they are searching the apartment Mark Harris and his girlfriend Corinne walk in. So that means Mark isn’t the person who’s body they found in his bath tub.  Mark and Corinne reveal that they were in the Hamptons, they said they gave the keys to Cody on Friday and left, everything seems to be in place at the apartment, Cody’s clothes are still in the dresser. Their sons and their friend Ethan gets dropped off by Ethan's mom who Jake instantly has an attraction to.  He invites her in for dinner and drinks where they discuss Jake's career as a cop.  They both share a look over their glasses of wine.


: Jake better not hookup with another woman in Laura's house. Back at the station, Laura and Billy find a "Mommy and Me" appointment card, for a class at 9am tomorrow, in one of Cody Roberts’ pockets. Laura heads back to her hotel room and takes full advantage of her vacation. She begins binging on snacks in her bed while reading magazines, she orders room service and a massage for herself. Then she heads to bed to watch what she wants on TV...Bravo. Can I do this even though I don't have children? The next morning, a reluctant Laura and Billy head to Cody Roberts’ Mommy & Me class. They notice a woman pacing back and forth waiting for someone, she quickly reveals, no seriously she was very open about it, that she is waiting for Cody because he was supposed to bring her crystal meth. Laura brings the woman in for questioning, she says she was overwhelmed with motherhood until Cody showed up at class and offered her a sample of meth and said, "all the moms are doing it." Really? That kind of peer pressure works? Back to the plot, she reveals that she never seen Cody, but he had a partner that worked at a rollerblade hut on the beach. You put $200 in your shoes in the locker and when you return there is a week’s supply of meth in your shoe. Laura and Jake decide to send an under-cover cop in to pose as a mom and rent rollerblades at the hut to bust Cody’s partner. Someone tips the dealer off and he runs down the beach and in to a house, Jake chases after him. Jake needs to not such tight fitting pants or something because he was struggling during that chase. The guy climbs out the upstairs window on to the roof just as the house explodes and sends Jake and the drug dealer flying. When they arrest the drug dealer he is relieved to find out that they are police officers and not a drug dealer named Jimmy’s henchman, which Meredith takes as a compliment. The dealer says he has no idea who Jimmy was, but he supposedly killed Cody because Cody wanted out of the business. Cody’s partner says that he used to pick meth up from a bodega downtown. Laura and Billy head to the bodega and spot two men coming out of the shop with bottles of liquid meth. Laura jumps out of the car and says she needs to confiscate their bottles, and one of the guys punches her in the face. Not cool, bro! Chaos ensues and back-up officers arrive and help them take the guys down. Laura takes the guy that punched her in the face into questioning and it turns out that he is actually an undercover cop who is also trying to take Jimmy down. When it checks out the undercover cop’s story is true their two departments are going to work together to bring down Jimmy. After Jake uncuffs the DEA worker he asks Jake to set him up with Laura, and Jake tells him not to even think about it. Jealousy doesn't look good on Jake. Jake is home with the boys later that night and Nora shows up on his doorstep and says she really needs someone to talk to. He pours her a drink and they sit down so she can rant about her ex-husband, who apparently told their son that she is fat. Laura texts Jake to check on the boys, which he ignores because he is busy with Nora. Nora tries to seduce Jake, but he declines since he's in Laura's house and his kids are upstairs. That doesn't stop one of Jake’s kids from coming downstairs to ask Jake why he was "wrestling" with Ethan's mom on the couch. The next day the DEA agent meets with Jimmy and his men to buy a large shipment of meth. While they move in and make the arrest, they realize that Jimmy is actually a woman. Jimmy lawyers up and refuses to talk to Laura and the cops, so Laura brings in Mark Roberts, since he mentioned he saw a woman outside of his apartment. Mark correctly id's Jimmy in a lineup and while Mark is ID’ing her Laura notices that he has a stutter, just like the soccer mom said Cody Roberts had. With the new discovery, Laura heads into Jake’s office and says that Mark is actually Cody Roberts. Cody wanted out of the drug game so he killed Mark Harris and stole his identity, knowing the police would think that the body in the bath tub was actually Cody Roberts. Laura has Cody’s dentist bring his records down to the police station, but when they don’t match the body Billy tells her that her theory might be wrong and Cody Roberts really is dead. But, then they see a pamphlet form Mark Robert’s dentist and realize tha this girlfriend Corinne works at the dentist office and she switched his dental records so that he could steal Mark Harris’s identity without any evidence. Mrs. Greenburg, Mark’s neighbor, shows up at the police station and says that someone stole her wallet. They think it may be Cody Roberts since he can’t use his own credit cards, they trace her credit cards and catch Cody Roberts and his girlfriend Corinne and arrest them for killing Mark Harris and stealing his identity. Jake gets a call from Nora who informs her that she left her underwear and Laura's house. I have a word for women like Nora, but I'll keep it to myself. Jake quickly goes to Laura's house and finds one of the boys walking around with Nora's underwear on his face. What have learned from this episode? Do not just go around exchanging your apartment with random people without an extensive background check. Until next week.
