Martin is talking to Mr. David about Malcolm in the courtyard when Jerry's body lands near them.

They call in Gil and the team.

Prodigal Son Season 2 Episode 4 Quotes

Lieutenant Arroyo, Gilly, this isn't a suicide. I was in therapy with Jerry just a few hours ago. All he could talk about was his impending freedom, and lobster, a man like that does not then go and kill himself does he? 

Martin

Martin: Ugh, come on, Martin. It's my form, right?
Mr. David: It's so much more than that.
