While Mark is her radio guest, she gets a call in the long-lasting search for her mom; she doesn't take it seriously, but after the show an assistant shows that the caller, Joanne Lombardi, knew about her secret birthmark. Meanwhile, Jesse warns everybody that his visiting mother is a terror by being too nice- she surprises even him by offering a full partnership in her private practice in Minneapolis. Denise goes looking for Joanna, finds her dead and is arrested. Mark fills in as radio host, and while providing sage advice over the air, snoops at the station. Someone plants the murder weapon in her flat's aquarium, but its obvious place convinces Mark it's a frame; then is appears Joanne was not a mother but turned in the Arriaga family with Immigration, but how can he trap the obvious suspect?
