The scene opens with a bunch of Navy soldiers at a bar. It is Fleet Week in Boston. A woman walks through the bar and a Navy soldier kisses her like the iconic photo of a Navy Soldier and a woman. Later, the same woman comes out of the bar and is approached by a man in dress whites. He attacks her. The next day, Jane, Maura and Angela watch as all the Navy Soldiers are puking from last night’s partying and Angela’s car breaks down. The soldiers offer to push the car for them and push it to Julvani’s auto shop. They get there and Julvani comes out and welcomes them. Maura likes Julvani’s body and Jane introduces him to Maura and when she takes an interested in him, she blocks her. Angela tries to hook Jane up, but she is not interested. Maura and Jane get a call and Julvani offers his 1975 Alfa Romero for them to take.

They get to the crime scene and Jane tells Maura that she shouldn’t go after Julvani because he is nice until he starts to talk. They go up to Barry and Korsak and Barry tells that the victim is Brenda Martin. She was sexually assaulted and killed. They realize that she came out of the bar and go inside. Jane asks why Maura is coming when she tells that she is coming too and Maura says that if she wants to sleep with Julvani she will. She says that she is going with her because she has to go to the bathroom. They get inside and the bartender tells them that he doesn’t know what the sailor who kissed the woman looked like exactly. Back at the station, Maura tells that Brenda was strangled to death. They find semen on Brenda and Korsak says that he is going to run it through the Navy records. He asks if she wants to get a burger and she says that she will get something from the cafeteria. Korsak says that Stan, the postman, is working there and that he has a brother on the inside to get him the job.

At the cafeteria, Frankie and Jane talk and Frankie says that he will pay to fix Angela’s car and says that Angela needs a job. Jane makes a comment to Stan and tells that his coffee tastes like he put his socks in it. Frankie says that he wants in on the Fleet Week Killer case. She sees Juvani comes in with flowers and chocolate and Jane thinks that it is for her, but he asks for Maura. He goes in her office and says that asks if she likes to go out to dinner and asks about Italian. Maura says that she loves Italians and then continues to correct herself. She says that it would be faster if he came to her house. He agrees and leaves and Maura is infatuated. She calls up Korsak and it is a Navy Sailor. They bring in Petty Officer Richard Salerno in and Korsak gets word from the District Attorney to hold him for aggravated assault. Later, Admiral Frost, Barry’s father, comes in and demands that they release Salerno. The Admiral warns Barry that Boston will lose Fleet Week and Barry says that they will manage without it. Meanwhile, Jane and Maura are at the bar and getting drinks from young Sailors. Maura says that Julvani is giving Angela a discount on fixing her car. Frankie comes in and says that they have another victim. He says that Admiral Frost bailed him out.

They get on scene and Barry is upset that Salerno was allowed to leave and that his father bailed him out. The woman is still alive, but barely. This time the rapist had surgical boots on. In the hospital, Maura says that there is bleeding on her brain and it doesn’t look good. Jane talks to the woman and tells that they are going to find who did this. The woman wakes up and tells details of the rape and asks why. Jane gets a text from Angela that is misspelled. Maura says that Angela needs a loner car. Jane asks when Julvani is going to get the car done and says that he told her that he is waiting on “special parts”. Maura tells that the car will be ready tomorrow. Maura and Jane walk by a Navy Sailor giving away an Energy Drink. Barry tells that Salerno has an alibi and so it wasn’t him. Maura says that it might rain and Jane says that the light at the top of the building is blue. That means no rain. It suddenly dawns on her that was what the victim of the second rape was seeing. They go to the station and Barry is able to find the Dolphin logo at the Sea Harbor Hotel.

Jane and Korsak go to the hotel and enter the room with the “Do Not Disturb” sign on it. They enter and it is the actually scene of the crime. Jane finds a name tag of the victim. Her name is Kim Tretorn. She is a Sales Rep for a software company in Minneapolis. They look at the cameras, but can’t find any suspicious behavior. Jane gets a call that tells her that Kim died in the hospital. Meanwhile, Maura has her date with Julvani and he is not classy at all. Maura feels a little uncomfortable, but pushes on. She stops him when he says that he wants to lick her face and tries to do it. She tells that she feels nauseated. Back at the station, they go through the video when Maura comes in and tells that Julvani wanted to lick her face. She tells that she wanted to sleep with him, but he talks too much. Jane finally sees a Naval Officer coming out with a suitcase and Korsak says that Naval Officers don’t sleep in hotels. They realize that Kim is stuffed in the luggage and the zipper mark on Kim’s face matches that of the suitcase.

Korsak comes out the next day and says that there were murders in New Orleans, Indianapolis and Houston with the same type of rape and killing. Barry says that it is not connected because the Navy doesn’t dock there. Korsak tells Barry that he should tell him father about what he does and Barry tells him to handle things that he knows about and leave his business alone. Jane and Korsak go to the cafeteria and Stan says that he put his underwear in the coffee today. Jane sees Angela working at the cafeteria and asks why she is. Angela tells that she has to pay for her car somehow. Maura comes in with a stuffed bear with a necklace. Maura says that Julvani is being too much. Jane brings Julvani into Maura’s work, but he likes it. Jane takes Julvani out of the room. Meanwhile, Barry realizes that there is something wrong with the Navy Officer’s uniform. Korsak says that his medals are out of order and one is from Vietnam. Barry says that the uniform is a fake. Jane asks Maura for any information on the fibers they found. She says that she hasn’t and Jane says that they have to find a fake Navy Officer. Frankie comes in with Angela’s Chicken Pot Pie and gives some to Maura. Frankie drinks the Energy Drink that the Navy Officer was passing out. Jane realizes that the drinks are the key.

They go to Barry and Korsak and realize that the drink is for Street Promos Inc. They have been to Boston, New Orleans and Indianapolis. Jane gets him as Devon Bosco and lives in town and has been on all three places where murders happened. They go to the location and stop Devon, but he runs. They chase after him and Frankie catches the guy by hitting him with the car door. Later at the bar, Korsak and Barry talk about the case and Barry doesn’t understand how someone could do that. Korsak asks if Barry’s dad ever told him that he was good at what he does and Korsak says that he is a great detective. Meanwhile, Jane and Maura go to pick up Angela’s car and it is streaked with a racing stripe and enclosed in leopard print padded seats. Julvani asks Maura if she wants work under the hood and Maura and Jane get close and they tell that they are together as “LLBFF” (Life Long Best Friends Forever). Julvani finally takes the hint and realizes that he doesn’t have a chance. He says that he has always wanted to be with two girls though. Maura is being polite still as Jane drives off in the car.
