Pimp Milton Wilder is shot in an alley by women. An embezzled businessman who finds his partner also cheated him with his wife fails to kill him, follows the paramedics to Community General and fails again in Jesse’s OR because of a crazily daring intervention from Steve’s LAPD colleague detective Taylor Lucas, the new partner of more orthodox rising vice squad star Amy Devlin, detailed to assist Steve in the Wilder case, but first they must arrest bail-jumper Laurette Stipe in a biker bar, which leads to a gun-fight killing Stipe with a bullet matching the Wilder murder, as it was planted by Lucas who was among his killers.
