Davenport (sharply played by Veronica Hamel) gets assaulted by a suspect in the booking area. LaRue (a fine Kiel Martin) butts heads with brutal corrupt narc Stan Mizell (a bravura performance by a young Robert Davi) over who gets credit for an undercover bust. Fed-up old man Mr. Seligman (an outstanding performance by Peter Brocco) threatens to jump from the top of an apartment building that he's being evicted from. Belker (essayed with scruffy aplomb by Bruce Weitz) has trouble having a loan approved by the bank. The whole subplot about the tenement building being cleared out offers plenty of poignant insight into urban blight; the plight of the old black woman in particular is quite moving while both Goldblume (an excellent Joe Spano) and councilman Detweiler (solid Michael Fairman) have a strong dramatic moments with Seligman. Hunter (a nicely quirky James Sikking) overcoming his bumbling shyness by admitting to his attraction to nurse Linda Wulfawitz (a radiant Kathleen Lloyd) provides some welcome humor. Popping up in neat guest roles are Peter Jurasik as the oily Sid the Snitch and Jeffrey Tambor as pushy attorney Alan Wachtel. And this episode makes a valid point that police work is dangerous for everyone involved with it.
