Bang-up episode

Furillo (Daniel J. Travanti, terrific as ever) angrily agrees to use his men to protect shifty corrupt cop turned informant Ralph Macafee (a pleasingly sleazy portrayal by Dan Hedaya) from a possible assassination attempt. Esterhaus (a wonderfully warm and affable performance by Michael Conrad) has second thoughts about his upcoming marriage to Cindy after Grace Gardner (Barbara Babcock in splendidly bold and sexy form) pays him a visit at the station house. Meanwhile, a gang war breaks out on the streets. The always vibrant and enticing Bancock totally burns up the screen with her sensuous and smoldering presence as Gardner; her big confrontation scene with Esterhaus in the basement of the police station is a sizzling erotic doozy. Hedaya likewise excels as the nervous Macafee; he astutely nails the twitchy paranoia of his character as Macafee slowly, but surely succumbs to blind panic while holed up in a crummy apartment. Betty Thomas as Lucy Bates has some sweet moments talking to potential dates on the phone. Michael Tucker contributes a marvelously engaging turn as charming cat burglar Mr. Heidel. Goldblume (Joe Spano) has a lovely locker room chat with Esterhaus about tying the knot. And the disastrous climactic wedding ceremony is a complete hoot.
