Episode Summary

EDIT
Lifeguard Confidential
AIRED:
The episode starts with a man named "Riptide" Roger Peltyn flying over the beach with his helicopter. He keeps bothering the lifeguards. He tells everyone about the fantasies he has about Donna, he calls J.D. the "Daytona pier killer" and he bothers Newmie during his workout. Lt. Taylor Walsh watches everything on TV and gets upset. She storms out of headquarters and tries to force him to leave by waving her arms. Mitch sees this from the TV in the weight room and runs out to stop her. He knows that this is exactly what "Riptide" wants. Taylor tells Mitch that "Riptide" must have a spy at Baywatch. Otherwise he can´t possibly know so much about the lifeguards. J.D. has no place to stay at and Cody tells him that he can stay with her and Caroline for a while. He plans on sleeping in Stephanie´s old bedroom but Cody tells him that no one is allowed to sleep there. So he ends up in Caroline´s bed since she is away to New York. She is auditioning for a part in the TV-series "Shannon´s Hope". In the middle of the night, Caroline returns home from New York. She is very surprised when she finds J.D. in her bed. He ends up sleeping on the couch. The next day, Caroline tells Cody that she didn´t get the part she wanted in "Shannon´s Hope". Caroline returns to work at Baywatch after being away for six months. Taylor places her at Mother´s Beach, a beach full of children and parents. Caroline tries to convince Mitch to give her a better beach, but Mitch tells her that Taylor is in charge of all tower assignments. When Mitch has spoken to Taylor, Taylor agrees to place her in a tower right next to Newmie. Later when Cody, Newmie and his new girlfriend Chantal is visiting a night club, they are surprised to find Lani as one of the dancers there. The next day she tells Cody that she is ashamed of what she is doing and that she doesn´t want anyone to know anything about it, especially not "Riptide". But he finds out about it, and the next day, he is flying over her tower. At the same time, Caroline sees a shark in the water. She quickly tells everyone to get out of the water. Then the cameraman sees the shark and they close in to get a better view. When the helicopter tips a bit, the cameraman falls in. When Caroline and Newmie see this from the beach, they head out to rescue him. The cameraman tries to grab hold of the helicopter´s landing base when "Riptide" lowers the helicopter in order to save his partner from becoming shark food. But the cameraman soon slips back into the water and "Riptide" crash-lands with his helicopter in the water. The buckle of his safety belt remains stuck preventing him from freeing himself. The helicopter is sinking pretty fast. When Taylor tries to rescue "Riptide", the tether of her rescue can get caught on the helicopter. Her strained movements propel her into the helicopter, hitting her head. Just when the shark is about to attack Taylor, Caroline comes to the rescue. She holds Taylor with one arm and with the other one, she grabs the rescue can and uses it as a weapon against the shark. The shark gives up and leaves. Mitch and Newmie rescue "Riptide". When they are back on the beach again, Chantal comes running towards them, looking worried. Newmie thinks that she´s worried about him, but Chantal is worried about her real boyfriend "Riptide". This makes Newmie the spy at Baywatch. When Taylor finds out that Caroline rescued her, she starts respecting Caroline more.moreless

    An enjoyable episode as a tv news host named "Riptide" Roger is televising the lifeguard update from his helicopter, as he is also the pilot. All of the lifeguards don't like him apart from Lani, who thinks he is funny. Wherever there is action, he is there.



    He knows personal information regarding everyone of the lifeguards and says it live on tv for the public to hear. So there must be a spy in Baywatch giving him the info? Mitch isn't happy with his humurous news work and tries to get him fired!



    Caroline is back from New York and her big broadway debut didn't go so well, so decides to start lifeguarding again and thinks this is where her career is. Cody let J.D. sleep in her bed till she got back.... so she comes home and finds J.D. ! she thinks he is cute and sparks are starting to fly. Taylor signs her to the mother beach, where it is boring and isn't really the ocean, she wants to be where the action is and wants to move to a different tower.



    Later on at Caroline's tower, she sees a shark and who is there, you guessed it "Riptide" Roger... his cameraman falls out into the water and "Riptide" tries to save him, but ends up putting his helicopter in the water and his seat buckle is stuck, so he sinks to the bottom. Mitch and Newmie end up saving "Riptide" and Caroline ends up saving Taylor from a close shark attack!



    The Baywatch spy ended up being Newmie's girlfriend and she hugs "Riptide" after he is saved...Newmie can't believe it and only told her stories that he had been told - therefore making Newmie the spy.



    A great episode with some great lifeguard saves and lots of action - a must see!moreless
