Marcellus survives two attempts on his life, causing Olshansky and Marcellus to re-examine Marcellus' past cases in hopes of discovering who wants him dead.
While preparing to leave the hospital after his surgery, Marcellus is shot by a man masquerading as an orderly. Then, after surviving the wound, Marcellus is shot at again while with his wife.
Upon finding the "orderly," Olshansky learns that the source of vengeance is an anonymous man who ordered the hit -- who fully intends to keep going until he's successful. Meanwhile, Liz hires Jamie to help her deliver donated furniture to a battered women's shelter, and, as a result, Jamie finds himself becoming a "big brother" to a young boy.
