Furillo (the always magnificent Daniel J. Travanti) suspects that Jesse John Hudson (a magnetic Danny Glover) is behind the theft of a cache of weapons. Washington (Taurean Blacque) investigates the murder of a prostitute. Goldblume (well played by Joe Spano) works undercover as a cab driver and saves lonely young lady West Virginia (a touching portrayal by the lovely Karen Austin) from a couple of street thugs. The orangutan Baby returns to provide a few cute comic moments. Moreover, there's an exciting sequence with Belker (Bruce Weitz) busting a transvestite hoodlum who's been holding up taxi drivers. Veteran character actor John Dennis Johnston contributes a stand-out performance as antsy snitch Freddy. The show's treatment of this character is truly impressive: Freddy is depicted as an admittedly wormy, yet still human and sympathetic person instead of as some despicable one-dimensional sleazebag (the scene with Freddy being arrested in front of his son is genuinely moving and tragic). Nathan Cook likewise does well as hip undercover cop Virgil Brooks. The ever-radiant Barbara Babcock is in first-rate fiery form as the scorchingly sensuous Grace Gardner, who splits with Esterhaus (Michael Conrad) and goes on a hysterical date with Hunter (a delightfully dry'n'droll James B. Sikking) to an art gallery exhibit. And this episode boasts an extremely poignant scene with West Virginia talking about her sad plight to Goldblume and coming on to him.
