Jarvis Bowes has spent the last 30 years in a psychiatric hospital after being convicted for the rape and murder of Malory Cerone. While institutionalized, he wrote a song which was covered by a pop band and has recently hit the top of the charts. Now Alicia and Lockhart/Gardner are helping Malory's daughter sue Jarvis for the proceeds from the song, claiming he wrote it about killing her mother. But when Alicia looks into Bowes' crime, she finds that the roots of the song may be even more disturbing than they had initially thought. Meanwhile Alicia and Diane help Eli attempt to secure citizenship for Natalie, but their case hits a snag when Natalie's father is wrongfully arrested and threatened with deportation.
