Episode Summary

EDIT
Backlash
AIRED:
A woman, Mrs. Wilson, is concerned about her daughter, Angie, so she hires Dan. She tells him that at night she and two of her friends, Allison and Beth go out dressed like teenagers, and she overheard them talking about meeting older men. What they don't know is that the girls, who are on probation, are being coerced by their probation officer, Kurt Struyker to coerce older men into revealing on tape that they are about to have sex with an underage girl. His associate, Kier, then blackmails these men. Dan begins by checking out where they work, which is a limo service owned by a man named Anthony Belmont, who is also an art dealer, who is also being coerced by Struyker, who was also his probation officer, when he was arrested and tried for an art scam. When Dan follows the girls he catches her with their latest mark but Dan interrupts them and Kier walks in and keeps Dan from finding out anything. Binzer then finds out the connection between Struyker, Belmont, and the girls, but is all circumstantial. When one of the girls decides she wants out, Struyker has Kier work on her, she and Angie then go to Dan who promises to help them. Struyker worried about what they are going to do deduces that the girls will go to Dan for help, so he has Kier grab Binzer who was watching Belmont, and tells Dan to turn the girls over to him for Binzer but Binzer manages to tell Dan where he is. Dan goes there and takes out Kier but Struyker appears and is about to shoot Dan when a fight breaks out, that ends with Dan stabbing Struyker.moreless
