| You now have the entire Manhattan DA's office out to nail you.
Two women sharing the same name, Sylvia Rossi, were shot dead early in the morning (one in her bodega and the other one in her hometown). Later on, another girl was killed in a garage by the same gun. Some witnesses saw a man with mechanic-like cap calling from phone boots before every murders: detectives managed to track down the truck he drove, finding a list of people who deserved to be killed, including McCoy. The prosecutor recognized all the situation is connected to an inmate (Daniel Hugh Kelly) convicted nine years before for killing his wife. Fontana and Green found a married couple from the list dead as well at home, another two witnesses. Using an alias, it's not easy for police to locate him; finally they catch the guy, a lowlife very close to the convicted man....

This episode seemed at first a remake of "Terminator" in which Schwarzenegger killed every women named Sarah Connor: nothing so far from the truth. McCoy has never been so close to his own death.
