Episode Summary

AIRED:
When a vital piece of evidence goes missing from the station, Tom has to face the unpleasant prospect that one of his team might be corrupt. As the accusations fly, Monica Draper arrives to conduct an investigation. Both Adam and Dash comes under scrutiny—both have a connection to the case and both had the means and opportunity. The stolen evidence, a videotape, incriminates Dash's ex-teacher—a woman who had a profound influence on Dash and convinced her to join the force. Could Dash have acted to protect her mentor? Adam's close connection to local businessman and politician Doug Healy also makes him a suspect. Did Doug pay Adam to break into the station and steal the evidence? The case against Adam looks particularly grim when Dash discovers the stolen videotape in his car. He insists the evidence was planted by Healy. The Heelers want to believe him, but the seeds of doubt have been sown. Meanwhile, a burglary victim reveals that not only is his stereo missing but $250 in cash. When the Heelers bring in a young girl she admits to stealing the stereo but denies knowing anything about the missing money. The Heelers are stunned when the furious victim accuses the Heelers of pocketing his money. Soon after, Dash can't help but ask questions when Adam pays $250 cash to buy her a present. The pressure of the investigation creates an atmosphere of suspicion which threatens to split the close-knit group of Heelers apart. Fears mounts that Adam may be corrupt. Even when Monica Draper discovers Doug Healy stole the videotape from the station and Adam is exonerated, the Heelers still feel lingering doubts about their colleague. PJ investigates and discovers that not all of Adam's dealings have been above board. His car, PJ learns, is a stolen "rebirth" job. Not only that, but he can prove Adam knew it was stolen and chose to keep it quiet. Adam is feeling the pressure and when Tom confronts him with the matter of the stolen money, Adam lashes out and takes a swing at Tom.moreless
