    Corrigan has a new girlfriend named Jill. She works at an aeorobics studio. Jim goes to take her out after work. She is acting strange and is tired and just wants to go home. At the same time three guys are ripping off jewels in a building. A man named Tom Warfielsd tells his buddy Bobby Curtis that his girl did a great job of getting them the schematics to the building. Hooker and Romano respond to a silent alarm call relating to the jewelry robbery. They chase them onto a construction site. A small boy is shot by Hooker. Hooker thought he saw a guy with a pipe in his hand. Romano chases the others and they hotwire helicopter and escape. Back at Jill apartment, Bobby tells her to get him some more schematics. Hooker takes the boy to the hospital and gives blood to help him. Internal affairs rips Hooker for shooting the boy. A friend on the force named Dave Reemer, tells Hooker he can stay on the job while there is an investigation. Bobby and Tim force Jill to sleep with another guy to get the schematics. They have footage of her doing porn to make her do what they want. Hooker goes to see a man named Lester. He tells them he showed some guys how to hotwire copters. Back at the hospital, the boys family totally blame Hooker and don't want to hear his excuses. Jim sees Jill at her apartment one more time. She is glad to see him, but tells him to leave. Hooker gets the name Ramsey from the shot boy. That is one of the names that Lester gave them. The next morning Jill is found dead. They get another jewelry robbery call. Hooker & Romano chase them. They shoot the one guy, but Bobby and Tom get away in another chopper. Jim and Stacey go to Jill funeral and talk to her friend. She said Jill was upset about paying for one big mistake she made. Hooker pulls the rap sheet on the man he shot. His name was Jeremiah, and he broke out of jail with Tom. Jim believes Bobby, who was a camerman at the aeorobics studio, was involved by the way he looked at Jill. Stacey tells Jim she is going undercover at the studio to find out more about Bobby. The next scene shows her at the audition. She asks Bobbby how to score points with the director. She does a very nice routine and gets the job.(Heather Locklear looks fantastic in a light blue & white leotard. She has such a nice body and it is always nice to see it showcased like this.) Later on, Stacey finishes her routine and tries to find some evidence. Bobby catches her and finds her police ID. He grabs her and waits for Tom. As they leave, Stacey flips on the camera to record where they are headed. Hooker and Ramano and Corrigan find evidence of Jill's prono past that ties all the bad guys together. They head over to the studio and find camera tape that tells them they are at an air strip. They race over to an air strip where Ramsey works. They get there and they stop Tom and Bobby for good. The next day Hooker visits the boy named Paco that he shot. He is going to be ok. Another great episode. Robert Davi makes his second appearance as a buy guy and is great. Judson Scott also does a great job as the other bad guy. The standout scene is seeing Heather in a leotard. She is so sweet and hot and sexy all at the same time.moreless
