The victim: Dr. Garrison Osgood, a plastic surgeon with his own private clinic in partnership with Dr. Lucy Everhill. When Angie, Brian and Oscar first encounter Dr. Osgood, he is still alive in the clinic, the chief suspect in Dr. Everhill's murder, she on one of the operating room tables slashed to death. However, Dr. Osgood spouts off a cryptic sounding message before he quickly crumples to the floor and dies in front of Angie and Brian's eyes. Despite suspecting that the two business partners were having an affair hence part of the reason they were in the clinic in their evening attire with champagne and a cigar late at night, the doctors' assistant, Paul Murphy, who found Dr. Everhill, tells the detectives that the doctors didn't socialize outside of the office. Dr. Everhill's husband confirms that there was tension between the two doctors of a legal nature. Betty is later able to confirm that both doctors' deaths were from a PCP overdose, the chemical compound which was found doused in the cigar in the operating room, smoking a cigar which was Dr. Osgood's Friday night ritual. As such, the thought is that Dr. Everhill was collateral damage in Dr. Osgood's murder. The detectives also find some somewhat contradictory issues in Dr. Osgood's past. They have to find the nature of what seems to be more than just an above board professional association Osgood had with his lawyer Charles Castella and tie it back to these contradictions to discover Ashley as the killer and the motive for murder. By the end, Oscar begins to question his professional judgment. Meanwhile, Angie takes her concern that she believes she is being followed by someone to Mark. And Neville and Guenther have narrowed down the source of the company leak to one of two people: Maria or Robert. Written by Huggo See less
