You think you're brilliant. You will never make senior partner.

A Caucasian male dentist (Adam Heller), whose clinic is placed in a black neighborhood, is killed inside his place while inhaling oxygen: as a matter of fact he was a tank addict and the perp murdered him by reducing oxygen. The killer turned out to be the mother of a teenager patient died shortly before visiting the clinic. Then detectives realized that there has been a misunderstanding because the doctor had nothing to do with raping and killing, actually these kid took advantage of him thanks to a mouthwash who helped them getting high. During the investigation, a female career fabulist (fake degree, fake achievements) turned up, but Goren is tough enough to deal with this peace of work.

Nice episode, showing us competition inside a company, where lies matters more than real skills and you must exploit the right moment.
