    Stacey and Jim stop by a market. Stacey goes inside and is involved in a robbery. She is shot by one of the guys. They run off. Hooker & Romano arrive and take her to the ambulence. Hooker is determined to nail the scum that shot Stacey. Hooker and Captain Sheridan talk over her life. Hooker puts a guard at Stacey's door. The bullets used were armor pierced and Hooker thinks they can trace them down. He goes to see a girlfriend of a guy who used to sell those bullets. She tells him of a gun store that might sell them. They go to the store. A black man walks in and walks back out. They go to see where he is going. He takes off in a car seen at the shooting. Hooker jumps over the counter and finds the bullets. He roughs him up until he tells him that he sold them to the guys. Corrigan & Romano try to calm down Hooker, but he doesn't want to hear it. Hooker visits the hospital and is told that Stacey will die if they operate and will die if they don't operate. This makes things worse. Hooker goes out to the streets looking for a guy named tooth pick. He finds a guy and almost beats it out of him. Internal affairs calls in Hooker and they hammer him with all the laws he is breaking. Hooker does not care one bit. He is looking to find the shooter, period.
    The crooks plot another robbery. Hooker goes to see a basketball coach he knows. He tells him Willie Joe Ellington Brown is Tooth picks real name. The crooks hit a jewelry store. Another cop is shot as they escape. The other cop heard the gilrs name driving the car, it was Jo-beana. Back at the hospital, the doctor's say Stacey is improving but they need to operate. Corrigan finds out she was Tooth picks girlfriend. They go to where she lives. They arrest her, but her boyfriend gets away. Hooker loses it again and threatens him until he tells him where the shooter is. He doesn't talk. Ramano calms him down. Hooker goes back to the hospital to see Stacey before the operation. He then goes back to talk with Joy-beana about her future. She tells him where the other man hangs out. Hooker goes to the place named Ana's, a restaurant downtown. Hooker sees the man he's looking for and follows him. He follows him into a motel. He tells the manager to send for backup. He breaks the door down and the guy picks up his gun to shoot and Hooker blows him outta the window onto the street. Back at the hospital Stacey talks with Hooker in the recovery room. Stacey asks him if Hooker got him and if he did it by the book. He says he did not cross the line. This is one of those great epiosdes that shows Hooker outta control and willing to do anything to catch a crook that shot one of his own. Wow, this was pure entertainment.
