Episode Summary

EDIT
The Obsession
AIRED:
Corrigan and Stacy respond to a seemingly trivial call about an illegally parked vehicle, only to stumble onto an armed robbery of a check-cashing outlet. As Corrigan calls for back-up, Stacy intervenes in the robbery to stop a man from being shot, only to be taken hostage by the trio of armed thieves. With Stacy held prisoner by the robbers, the head of the trio rapidly develops an "obsession" for her, much to the aggravation of his girl-friend, who is also one of the theives.
As Hooker and Corrigan search for Stacy and the thieves, they risk taking on the might of City Hall when it becomes apparent that the father of one of the trio is involved in the Mayor's re-election campaign and is prepared to pull strings to keep the whole case quiet. Meanwhile, the trio's leader's obsession with Stacy continues to grow – and it is the only thing that is keeping her from being killed...moreless

Stacey gets one of the bad guys to like her and she takes advantage of it. She tries to escape with her hands still tied. She is caught and taken back to the cabin. The crooks pull off another robbery and kill the bank guard. One of the tellers saw one of the crooks faces. Hooker goes back to the father with the new information.

They get two of them as the other takes Stacey up to the roof of a building. Hooker chases him down and he threatens to throw her off the roof. She kicks him and gets away.
