Episode Summary

EDIT
The No-Cut Contract
AIRED:
Angel is visiting Jim when two men storm into the trailer demanding the tapes that King Sterdivan gave Jim. Jim is puzzled as they ransack the place and eventually take some ‘Count Bassey’ cassettes. Jim and Angel are on their way to the police, when Jim spots he is being followed a chase ensues but they are caught at the cinema and arrested by the Federal Agents. Agent Dan Shore questions Jim about the tapes, but Jim has no idea what they are so Shore tells him about Larry Sterdivan, a football player for the Southern Illinois Warriors. Jim goes to a TV studio to meet Sterdivan, who causally runs offs, so Jim catches him at a player’s party and saves Larry from an ambush laid out by a pretty girl for Norman and Bill, the goons from before. Larry explains he picked Jim’s name from the Yellow Pages to get these hoods and the Feds off his back. Jim is unimpressed, but Larry takes him to see his manager, claiming he can sort it out. They find the manager dead, so Larry takes Jim at gunpoint and accuses him of the murder. Dennis arrests Jim while Beth meets Larry, who makes a pass at her. Beth is unimpressed. Next day Jim is released without charge, and learns that Larry owns the ‘King’s Castle’ nightclub in Illinois, which was burned down overnight, and now Los Angeles has filed up full of gangsters from Illinois. Jim is determined to find Larry and goes to Angel for some information. Jim learns Larry’s address, and also that every gangster in town is after him. Jim goes to the address and finds Larry forcing him to reveal that the club was frequented by gangsters so he bugged the tables in the club, has lots of information on syndicate business dealing and prominent murders. Larry takes Jim to the tapes that he kept hidden at Lisa’s house. At the party Larry meets ex-ball player Dick Butkus, and then shows Jim the tapes hidden in amongst Lisa’s music collection, when the goons begin to arrive….moreless
