We start off the episode with a news story about Congressman Jameson having an affair and him denying it while someone loads bullets into a gun while wearing surgical gloves. The person screws on a silencer as the reporter says they have an interview with his mistress, Caitlyn. Jake wants Laura to work the Jameson scandal, but it's her day off and she wants to take advantage of her spa coupon. He asks her to follow Caitlyn and she refuses to because it's a job that any woman can do, but he tells her that it may be an extortion set up. 

Laura watches the mistress and is surprised by how well Caitlyn is able to avoid the paparazzi. Laura is in the middle of some shopping sale and is basically being pushed out of the way by very persistent shoppers. She peeks out from behind a rack and sees the mistress and ends up talking with her about clothes. When they are done, and Caitlyn leaves, Laura follows her out of the store and into Times Square. She gets a call from Jake and she tells him she doesn’t think the girl is guilty but then says she thinks Caitlyn is there for a meet up. While looking at the screens Caitlyn is shot down.

A reporter runs up to Laura and Billy asking for a quote from her. They ask his source since it could have been the killer, but he refuses and they tell him to leave. Laura and Billy split up with Laura going to talk to the Congressman and Billy going to Caitlyn's place. Jameson tells Laura that he was at a pancake breakfast and says Caitlyn could have cleared his name. Laura asks if it’s an equipment problem and says they need to verify it. He tells her that he’ll have his doctor send the records but asks them to be discreet. He says Caitlyn was a good person and didn’t have anything to do with this.

Over at Caitlyn's place, Billy talks to her roommate who says Caitlyn wasn’t crushing on Jameson. She tells him that she was working for a guy named Walters at the Justice Defense Fund. Her roommate says they were besties – plus she has an alibi. When Billy goes to see Walters his alibi is that was at a hearing at the time. He really liked Caitlyn and Billy asks if she had any disgruntled clients but he says no. Walters says he met Caitlyn at moot court and that he was on the short list for a judge if Jameson was elected. He says the man was delightful and he doesn’t see Caitlyn throwing her career away for an affair. He suggests that they take a closer look at Store, the reporter.

Store was the first reporter on the scene so they wonder if she was meeting him. After Max pulls up all his information and activity Billy finds that Store spends $350 at a tea room on Tuesdays. Laura, who was not able to use her spa groupon, takes full advantage of the silence. A dominatrix comes out and Billy asks what they can get for $350 and she says 30 minutes of beginner bondage.

Whatever floats your kinky little boat, I guess.

While they wait for Mistress Alex Billy goes to prowl around and finds a guy tied up being spanked, a man with an apple in his mouth being greased by girls in maid’s costumes. Laura goes into Store’s room where he’s blind folded and he says he needs to be punished.

Again... whatever floats your boat.

Laura is not here to play out his fantasy. She gets straight to the point saying he fabricated a story about Caitlyn and then she died and because of that he’s a murder suspect and she is going to drag him out in his dog collar and tighty whities. He plays her a voice mail that says it’s Caitlyn, she had an affair with Jameson and wants to tell him the whole story. Laura tells Jake that Store gave up the source and it was Caitlyn. She replays him the message saying they had sex on April 12th at the El Rey hotel.

They find Bill, Jameson's opponent, giving a speech to a group of Indians. He makes a bunch of promises, offers platitude and takes in the applause. He chews out his campaign manager for the PA squelching out. Laura tries to charm the campaign manager and she says that he is better than Calvin Gold, a crazy campaign who punched an elderly volunteer and is now in an anger management rehab. The detectives have a 3D of Times Square and they show the line of sight from cameras. She was in a dead zone but Jake says the guy had to get there and tells Meredith which camera feeds to pull.

Laura has to find a way into the rehab center to talk to Calvin. She tells the receptionist she has mom burnout but the woman says she needs a clinical diagnosis. After a few examples of how burnt out she truly is the woman hands her a form to fill out. She finds Calvin and informs him that his candidate is up by 13 points. He asks why and she fills him in on the affair and murder. He mentions the blind spot and says the Secret Service found it last year but it was highly classified. He denied being a puppet master and also in charge of an assassination while he was in rehab, but admitted that McGuire was busted for ethics violations so he hasn’t been able to run a dirty campaign. He tells her how he would have set up the sex scandal and says the timing was sloppy and obviously the work of an amateur. Calvin says whoever did this wanted to make sure McGuire wins.

Meredith got the security footage and when they watch it the camera goes dark and doesn’t come back on until five minutes after the shooting. Jake sends her and Billy to investigate. Walking by the gaming store Meredith is a sight for sore eyes to the nerds. They ask who controls the security cameras and one guy takes off so they give chase. The guy runs into Lady Liberty and Billy is able to tackle him. When they bring the guy back he says it wasn’t his fault and that he had no idea. 

He says the Overlord told him to do it and that the guy had God mode, which Meredith says is impossible because of the encryption. 

I think Meredith is a secret nerd, y'all!

He continued to tell them that the Overlord IM’d him and knew all about him saying he would rat out his porn addiction to his boss if he didn’t turn the camera off. Billy decides to play online in order to track the Overlord. Billy struggles, but hands the controller over to Meredith, who has been trying to help him beat the level, and she confesses that it's already hard being a female detective. Add a hardcore gamer to that and it's a recipe for disaster.

A little trivia for you: Janina Gavankar, who plays Meredith, is a huge gamer in real life and is said to be the first person on Twitter. 

At Caitlyn’s apartment, Jake and Laura search and wonder how she did well in law school when she flunked her LSATs so badly. Laura notices a dead plant and pulls it up and finds an ID there. An ID with Heather’s photo and Caitlyn’s name. They go to talk to her BFF again. Unfortunately, when they show up, Heather is dead on the sidewalk! Going through Heather’s stuff Laura notices she did the crossword in sharpie (Who is she, Rainman?). They soon realize that Heather most likely took the bar exam for Caitlyn.

Max confirm handwriting ID on the test and Laura says Heather probably knew about the blackmail. Billy says they are zeroing in on the Overlord and soon figure out Overlord has a fast ping time which means he’s close to the server in Queens. Meredith says they have to lure him in and she logs in as herself, Foxy99 a level 40 Paladin. Really Meredith really?

Billy falls asleep and is woken up when she finally gets him. He asks her to turn on her camera and Billy grabs Max's One Direction poster and starts rearranging things so it doesn’t look like a police station . Billy traces the guy's location while Overlord and Meredith play.

Police cars zoom in and Jake is outside the guy’s door. They find Paul Scott at his gaming station and he tries to attack Jake. He almost gets away, but Laura is there with her gun on him. 

Paul is arguing with someone when he makes his free call. It seems like his lawyer doesn’t want to come down and he ends up asking for a public defender. When Laura redials the number it goes to the Justice Defense Fund. Jake heads over to talk to Jameson and asks if he knows Caitlyn’s boss Walters or talked to him about being a judge. Jameson of course denies knowing the guy.

Laura shows up to arrest Walters and says she’s glad so many lawyers are there so she can make sure it’s by the books. She says she knows McGuire offered to make him a judge and recalls them from the debate clipping in his office. She says Caitlyn trusted him enough to tell him about cheating on the bar and he used that to blackmail her to say she had an affair. She says when Caitlyn was going to come clean, he decided to kill her. She sits and says Caitlyn’s roommate Heather knew too much and also had to be killed. Walters doesn't admit to anything and says she has no evidence. She tells him he lied when he said he was at immigration court because it’s closed for fumigation. She tells him that his hacker client also told them that he had him blackmail the game store clerk.

Walters breaks down and says he worked hard and says all he wanted was a place on the bench. He says Jameson blocked him and she says the guy has no idea who he is. Walters pulls a gun and Billy is there and shoots him in the shoulder. Laura jokes and says he stole her thunder and that she promises to let him shoot the next one.

Laura finally gets her spa day, but not in the normal place. We see her in a robe with cucumbers on her eyes, however, she’s in a holding cell trying to be all zen. I mean, you got to take what you can get.

I enjoyed last week's episode a little better than this week that's for sure. Four episodes in and I just feel there is something lacking with the series. It could be the lack of chemistry that I feel or I just think the writers don't know exactly what direction they want to go. I hope whatever it is it's figured out before it's too late.
