9/8c - GONE: Detective Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) matches wits and moves with a paranoid but murderous chess grandmaster (as David Blum, guest star Robert Carradine) after a newly engaged woman is found slain and tossed in a garbage bin -- but Goren believes the killing might be a case of mistaken identity and finds links to a wealthy family and a pimp. Edging closer, Goren and Detective Eames (Kathryn Erbe) study the passenger manifest on the victim's recent flight and they discover the curious zig-zag path of one disturbed man who is later discovered to be a famous chess prodigy-turned-fugitive now intent on blackmailing his family for money.

8/7c - COLLECTIVE: After police accidentally shoot to death an innocent collector of expensive toys, Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) discover that the victim might have fallen prey to a conniving vixen (guest star Kim Director) who trolls sci-fi and vampire conventions in sexy outfits looking for lonely men who have massed rare and valuable collections desired by cult-like fans. The detectives attend a costume ball for fans of a "crypt club" and find a death-obsessed secret society -- some of whom could be responsible for a real murder.

9/8c - The murder of a corrections officer points the Major Case squad toward a corrupt Brooklyn prison where unaccounted-for prisoners are secretly abused by guards -- and the key to exposing the ring lies with a prison nurse whose boyfriend is the maverick Detective Mike Logan (Christopher Noth, NBC's "Law & Order"). As Logan warily aids Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) in their probe, they discover an unseemly political connection and ultimately must jeopardize their lives inside the forboding walls.
