|Detective Morris, "Another One Wipes the Dust"|
Morris takes Spence's phony confession. ("Another One Wipes the Dust")
After the famous actress Peri Westmore is found brutally murdered in her home by her ex-husband Spence Westmore, Detective Morris and Detective Shaw show up at the house to question the latter, who is the prime suspect. Shaw learns that Spence got his memory back following a six month sufferance as an amnesiac, but then he started drinking the night before and blacked out, meaning he can't remember Peri's death or whether or not it was as a result of his actions. Shaw finds this awfully convenient and, after allowing him to reunite with his other ex-wife Rosie, she later arrests along with Morris him because Morris claims his finger prints have been found on the murder weapon: Peri's America's Choice award. Spence's sponsor Ben comes to visit him down at the station but Shaw won't allow it unless he's a lawyer; as such, Ben phones in a favor from a friend and Shaw is obligated to let him visit, for apparently Ben has friends in high places. Later, Rosie shows up after having found a stripper named Cinnamon who can corroborate an alibi for Spence, only for Shaw to tell her that Spence, thanks to Ben, already confessed to the murder and is now recording his statement. Morris is the one in the room with Spence as the confession is recorded, with Ben standing behind the camera looking shady. ("Another One Wipes the Dust")
