Dr. Sloan suspects a cunning D.A. in the murder of an acquitted defendant.
While Mark is on jury duty -slacking according to Norman, as doctors can excuse themselves-, defending reasonable doubt in the murder case against mobster Yuri Andropovich after crucial evidence was declared inadmissible, which causes his third acquittal, D.A. Patricia Purcell smuggles a bomb into the courthouse's subterranean parking via vacant judge's chambers past bailiff Billy Randolph and hides it in a car, staging a break-in; the explosion kills Yuri as he leaves. Steve looks for the bomb-builder in Koreatown; although forbidden to, Jessie takes Amanda there. Old Qwan Lok's crook hand can't do such work, his grandson Eddy Lok, who runs their grocery store and has a record, talks cocky but denies any part. Mark questions Purcell's procedure faults and unusual non-tenacity while sleuthing the bombing with eager Jessie, ties the threads and sets a trap.
