The Buttercup Killer
When a Greek shop owner is found gunned down, Crowley is surprised to learn that robbery wasn't the apparent motive -- the victim was petrified with terror even before the fatal shot was fired. The killer dons a nun's habit and walks with a profound limp. The only clue is a dried buttercup flower dropped next to the victim. When another family member is killed in the same manner, the team realizes a serial killer is at work, and the clues are designed to remind the victims of a dead or absent woman back in the old country, someone whom they wronged terribly and are ...

Merry Christmas Waldo
In this remake of a "Police Story" episode from that show's first season (but with a different outcome), an old pensioner celebrates the Christmas season by robbing banks through trickery, usually donning a Santa suit and passing a note claiming he has an armed partner (or, in one case, getting a sidewalk Santa to stand by while he robs the bank in civilian clothes). The old man lives very quietly, except that he's a forceful advocate for the elderly. Pepper and Crowley begin to suspect that he's not pulling the robberies for himself, but to benefit other old people.

Death Game
It's hot and the air keeps going out in the police station. A street kid threatens Pepper while she drags him into a prison cell, making her wonder why the guys seem to take their rage out on women, if there's one around. Then, frustrated that their latest drug bust (Nehemiah Persoff) has already made bail before they can finish their drinks at Vinnie's, Pepper leaves the bar and almost gets run over on purpose in the parking lot, but, being a good cop, she just goes home and doesn't tell anybody about it until later. When she finally does, Bill is pissed, and they ...

The Human Rights of Tiki Kim
The Korean mob (led by Philip Ahn in his last role) tries to put muscle on Koreatown by extortion and murder. An immigrant organizes a neighborhood association to fight them, so the gang targets the honest man's cute 8-year-old niece for kidnapping, with the price for her safe return being that he remain silent. They then arrange for her to be "adopted" and sent back to Korea by a native family they've hired, using their Washington connections to threaten the man with arrest for violating immigration laws if he, Pepper or a friendly journalist interfere. The title ...

Stopped at a traffic light while driving to work, Crowley notices the driver of the next car is unusually nervous and sweaty, and apparently has "made" Crowley as a cop.

The driver flees on foot, but Crowley tackles him.
