    A man named Mickey Tovelli is hired by Willie Duncan. He gets a chemically based firebomb to try to kill Hooker with. They throw the bomb into the car. Hooker and Romano survive it, but Romano is blinded. His girlfriend cop Maggie is called in but Romano does not feel like talking to her at the moment. Hooker takes her as his partner for the time being. They find a name in the crooks car, Robert Smith. They track down the chemical to the seller. He tells them his real name is Mickey Tovelli. Willie is shown telling Mickey that Hooker was responsible for killing his friend. He wants Hooker to die a horrible death. Hooker and Maggie go to where Tovelli used to work. He is no longer there but his partner Duncan is shown working there and watching them. Later on Romano's bandages are removed and he can see. They all meet at Sherry's bar and go over the suspects left that want Hooker dead. Maggie is going to take Hooker's car to get some charcoal. It blows up and she is killed. Ramano is devastated and can't believe she was killed. He regret not telling her he loved her. He also wants revenge until Hooker talks to him about it. Hooker offers to give him a week off and he wants to stay on the job. They get a drawing of the Tovelli's hideout and look for him. They find his workshop as he flees. Hooker jumps on his truck and stops him. Ramano loses it and tells him to run so he can shoot him. Hoker stops it before he goes to far. Tovelli wants to strike a deal for the other guys name. Hooker won't budge and he tells him the name Walt Dugan. Tovelli asks if Hooker will help him now, and Hooker says he will recommend a pill drop for his death. Willie buys a 44 magnum to kill Hooker with himself. Ramano tells Hooker he is sorry and Hooker lets him back in. Corrigan comes in and tells Hooker the guys real name they want is Willie Duncan. They search his house and he takes a shot at them from across the street. Back at the station Hooker decides to wear a vest. He goes out on his own and Finds Willie. He chases him down and has a shootout on a roof. He shoots Hooker. Hooker acts dead and kicks the gun out of his hand as he is going to shoot again. He knocks him hanging on to the roof's edge. He thinks about letting him drop. Ramano comes up and tells him "I was wrong". Hooker helps him up. Another solid episode. Ramano's blindness is another memorable occurance in the series. Karen Kopins is also good as Romano's girlfriend. I also loved Robert Dryer and Don Gordon as the bad guys.moreless
