Back at the station Stacey and Hooker discuss all of the murders at the mall recently. All of them are young, blonde and work at the mall. Stacey wants to go undercvoer as a salesgirl at the mall. A necklace was found at the scene and Vic Farrows name comes up as the owner. They go to see him about it. He runs but they catch him. He is wanted for other charges but he is not the killer. They set up Stacey with an apartment and she is wired. The next scene shows the killer putting his gun into a LCPD bag. Hooker tells Romano a clip they found from the murders is from a gun only sold to cops. Stacey meets Dave Manetti, a full time vice cop and a part time mall detective. Stacey's new friend goes home with her on the bus. She tells Stacey she is getting weird phone calls. She is killed that night. Hooker believes that Manetti is a prime suspect since he is a cop. Stacey decides to take Manetti out on a date. Corrigan is really upset that Stacey is out in the open. Hooker and Romano take over the stake out that night. They check out his home while he is out and Stacey checks out his Van. He catches her and Hooker comes in to arrest him. He says his gun was stolen. That is the gun that was used in the killings. He also said he did report it stolen. They check him out and he checks out. The next day Manetti tells Stacey he would still like to see her. Manetti goes home that night and is met by the janitor. He shoots him. He is Manetti's brother named Tony Parino. Hooker finds out all about Parino from the files. Corrigan escorts Stacey to the van where she is supposed to meet Manetti. Tony is inside with a gun and takes her away. Hooker goes to Manetti's home and finds him there. He says he is going to kill her. Tony takes her out into Harris park. Hooker goes up in a chopper to get reception from her wire. Hooker jumps on him from thechopper as Corrigan and Romano arrive. The final scene has all four meeting Manetti in the hospital. Stacey is going to spend some time with him while he heals. Another good episode here. Stacey going undercover always adds some tension to the episode.moreless
