A special episode of “Wet/Dry” in which Officers McMurtry and Davis bring in tree whisperer Jack Killian and U.S.-born Nigel Devonshire to help solve the case of a promising young high school baseball player killed in a botched heroin deal behind a bowling alley. Using whichever pieces of evidence have not already been swallowed by the district’s leading forensics experts, the team tracks the case from the world of commercial refrigeration to a surprisingly upbeat tenement house, interrogating everyone from a grieving, caffeine-addicted couple to one remarkably gay family. When an off-camera explosion threatens to scuttle the entire investigation, they’ll need the help of Ronny Keane, some avid reality TV fans, a computer lady and a car guy, a parrot in a wig, the governor’s butler, a blandly attractive set of quintuplets, a group of horny New Yorkers, and a really funny payroll guy who works with Uncle Gene. Not to mention, of course, a manephant.
