When a man says in confessional he knows Father Morrissey has 'sinned', the priest takes a gun from a hollowed Bible, drives his car over him but finds the envelop he looks for gone, stolen seconds earlier by a girl. Father Morrissey even fakes stomach pain to be admitted in the same L.A. hospital, Community General, so he can administer a fatal injection, surprised only by bag lady Alice, who was just admitted for amnesia, however possibly still somewhat treatable. The physician in charge, Dr. Mark Sloane, smells a rat after Morrissey discharges himself and goes talk to Father Morrissey, coincidentally the parish priest of hospital administrator Norman Briggs. Sloane's son, LAPD Detective Steve Sloane, still only worries about his hair perhaps falling out, but the autopsy by Amanda Bentley-Livingston allows her witnessing friend, senior resident Dr. Jack Stewart, to trace a dragon tattoo to the Cobras, a gang of convicts a cousin of his belongs to...

From the beginning, Steve Sloan is supposed to be with LAPD, but in early episodes all cars have Colorado license plates. It appears that the series didn't move until well up into the first season. See more
