Nicky swears the drugs aren’t hers but she refuses to turn on her friends. Erin tells the officer to put Nicky in solitary holding until morning to help convince her to tell the truth.
Nicky uses the name Boyle so that people at school won’t know she’s connected to the NYPD. Nicky still won’t snitch on her friends and thinks the Bronx DA won’t charge them all. Erin tries to explain how wrong she is and shows her that she’s already been suspended from Columbia until the investigation is concluded.
The charges are dropped after Nicky lies to her friend Kyle, telling him the plastic bag with the drugs has been fingerprinted and tested for DNA and that his only chance for a deal is if he comes forward and confesses. Kyle does. Erin wants to know who coached Nicky on what to say to Kyle to get him to confess. Everyone denies it. Frank says it wasn’t him because Erin told him to keep a good 500 feet back from this situation but it turns out he had Sid Gormley call Nicky and give her advice.
