Plot Overview

While Kavanaugh sweats Lem, the rest of the Strike Team try to reiterate their strength on the street. However, it backfires when they have to hunt down a thug who retaliates by going on a rampage.

Dutch and Claudette investigate what appears to be an attempted murder that's tied to aversion therapy by a minister.


Arc Advancement


  • Kavanaugh releases Lem with him wired. Lem later tells Vic about it.
  • Kavanaugh and Aceveda discover that Lem, at least, was unaware of Vic killing Terry Crowley.


  • Lem suspects Vic of killing Terry Crowley.
  • Dutch takes note of Claudette being late and leaving for a supposed errand.



The Show

  • Kavanaugh says Crowley's murder was two and a half years ago. Given the timeline established in the previous episode, this would mean the first four seasons occurred over the course of just two years.
