Storyline

Continuation of Episode #1.1. "Pilot: Part 1" Nan Woodall, the murder victim in the previous episode, is buried and the community is devastated. While investigating Nan's and Willie Jones' murders, Virgil is badly beaten by redneck thugs. Surprisingly, Chief Gillespie is sympathetic and cooperative, and he dresses down every police officer who is reluctant to work with Virgil Tibbs. The case leads into the seamy side of life in Sparta, including orgies and pornographic videotapes. Working together, Tibbs begins to carve out a place in the department, and Gillespie turns out to be a superb, insightful investigator. Written by richardann
