Episode Summary

AIRED:
When a man is seen drifting in the ocean, Matt and Stephanie are called in to rescue him. But as they are approaching the victim, a Coast Guard helicopter waves them away from the victim, and they rescue him instead. Later Stephanie and Matt confront one of the Coast Guard members Scott Daniels about calling the scarab off. Scott explains to them that they couldn't see it, but the scarab was about to travel across a fish net, which would have folded the scarab propellers. At first Stephanie doesn't like Scott, and she is less than thrilled when she discovers that she will work with him on the beach for a day because Chief Thorpe thinks it will be a good thing for the Coast Guard to see what a lifeguard does and the other way around. Scott is convinced that life-guarding is all about working on your tan, but when Stephanie is forced to make a rescue and Scott doesn't have a clue who the victims are, he agrees that life-guarding is a very serious job and that you have to be on your guard all the time. The next day, Stephanie joins Scott for a week of Coast Guard duty. But she encounters problems when she is about to dive from the helicopter. She can't go through with it because she has been afraid of helicopters ever since her father died in Vietnam when she was seven years old. Later Scott explains to Stephanie that the man they rescued in the fish net the other day is involved with gun-smugglers operating in the waters. They are on a boat named the La Paloma. Mahorn and Laimbeer on the La Paloma have smuggled guns for quite some time now, and the Coast Guard is on full alert for this boat. When Mahorn and Laimbeer are about to bring a big shipping of guns to shore, their engines stop working. When Mahorn and Laimbeer have abandoned the La Paloma in a small boat, Matt and Stephanie arrive in the scarab. As Matt and Stephanie pull the men from the water, Stephanie recognizes the emblem on their life jackets that say the La Paloma. But before she can call it in, Mahorn and Laimbeer have pulled their guns at them. Matt is thrown overboard in a fish net and is left drifting in the ocean. When Matt has been dumped, Mahorn and Laimbeer try to run away with Stephanie hostage. But they are forced to stop when they are surrounded by the helicopter, the Coast Guard boat and another scarab with Newmie and Barnett. Then Stephanie is picked up by the helicopter and they go searching for Matt. When they find him, Stephanie is forced to make the dive, because Scott got injured by one of the bullets Mahorn shot at the helicopter. She manages to go through with it and brings Matt to safety.moreless
