Stella Wong, A reporter believes Sam Rhodes a tennis player is being doped, with something that doesn’t pop a drug test. He has been treated over the years by Dr Razmik Maier who turns out not to be on the up and up. Red postulates that the The Boswell Syndicate, a sports betting ring of big name players pays Maier significantly for insider information on sports stars, and perhaps even murder to bring up their margins and ensure their winning ways.
Ressler is still dealing with his addiction problem even post visit to Liz's grave as he tries to steal pills from a couple who lost their son to Maier's ways. Later he tries to steal a script from Wong's apartment where Park catches him in the act. Cooper is also in hot water as he continues his investigation only to come upon another dead body.
We hear what may be an unreleased song called "Rotten Tree" over the final scenes of the episode with Ressler handcuffed in his office and Cooper framed for another murder.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
