Episode Summary

Mr. Chapel meets a man with a bag full of money, but before the switch can be made, Chapel is shot. He returns to K.C. and is treated by a vet. During his convalescence, we see what led up to the shooting. Chapel is pursuing Harold Wabash, the judge in a mafia trial. Wabash is on the take. Chapel intends to see that the mafia leader is tried and convicted, so he steals some of Wabash's money, and sends it back--after a trip through a paper shredder. This leads Wabash to get help from a former hitman, the man who shoots Chapel. After Chapel recovers, he captures the hitman, Garcose, and befriends him. He uses another client to make the mafia think that Wabash is a traitor, and then he gives Wabash a choice: do the right thing and you can still have your money, or else...moreless
