Capturing A Drug Dealer, 28 April 2015
Author: Desertman84 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Slippin' Into Darkness is the second episode of the third season of 21 Jump Street.Officers Tom Hanson and Dennis Booker team up once again to catch a drug dealer.Unfortunately,their mission was messed up by a gang of young vigilantes that cleaned up the streets of the crime to remove clues and evidences.

Meanwhile,Officers Judith Hoffs and Truman Ioki go undercover as Guardian Angel-type street patrol group members that intend to help Hanson and Booker in capturing a the drug dealer the latter intend to capture.Finally,Captain Fuller now asked Officer Doug Penhall whether he wants to join the 21 Jump Street team or not.

The episode was pretty decent as we get to see all members of the group in one mission of capturing a drug dealer.Added to that,we get to see how compelling the partnership between Hanson and Booker are becoming in it and probably in the episodes to come.
