  • Good bye Larry

    9.1
    This was the sendoff of Larry Zito, as John Diehl left the series.



    The only real problem is a very convulted plotline that is hard to follow. The nutshell version is that Zito helps young fighter Bobby Sykes train with his manager Moon.



    But using him as bait to catch a kingpen named Guzman backfires when Moon is killed when not accepting Guzman's offers to take over the fighter's career.



    Zito agrees to helpo train Sykes with a guilty conseience. Unfortunately, the same fate awaits Zito. Switek arrives to find his partner dead, with a needle in his arm, another victim of Guzman.moreless
