EDIT
The Confession
AIRED:
Responding to the latest in a string of rape muggings on women using automatic teller machines, Hooker finds that the latest victim is Episcopal female priest Beth Harrison, an old acquaintance. Although terrified, she agrees to testify when Hooker and the team nab the culprit, but the attacker cunningly goes to church to give confession about the rape to her, leaving Beth sticking to her sworn vow of silence over confessions and thus refusing to give testimony. Hooker tries to convince her to go against her beliefs and testify, or else the rapist will be free back on the streets and strike again...moreless

    A woman is robbed and raped in front of an ATM. Hooker and Romano chase a car with two suspects. They lose them in the chase. Back at the scene Hooker recognizes the victim as Beth Harrison, a female priest. Back at the station Lt. O'brien sets up an undercover ring to smoke out the crooks. They will stake out ATM machines in the area. Ramano is upset because his mom was just mugged in Philadelphia. Hooker & Ramano check out all the bar and watering holes in the area for clues. Hooker asks a bartender about men that carry a marauder knife. He tells them Pyro and Dancer are the guys they want. Ramano gets a call from his mom and she is ok. Hooker visits Beth at the church. He talks about all the people she has helped. He asks her to help him by remembering what happened. She remembers him calling her "Marita". Corrigan and Stacey see the guys robbing a woman. Pyro leaves his buddy behind and Corrigan is forced to shoot him. Hooker catches Pyro after a chase. Pyro says he was not involved and was just scared. There was no evidence in his car and he has no convictions. Hooker tries to get Beth to testify. She finally agrees to do it. Later he comes to the church and confesses his crime to her. She now feels that she cannot testify against him because of what he did. Hooker tapes Pyro saying he does not believe in God. Beth still won't testify. Hooker puts out the word she will so Pyro will make another attempt on her life. He comes to the church to kill her and Hooker is waiting for him. He takes him away. Hooker decides to go to church and hear Beth's first sermon. A very memorable episode. Paul Koslo who plays Pyro is always great in every part he plays.moreless
