McCloud investigates the death of a woman he finds dead on the balcony of a Senator's apartment. When the body vanishes before the crime scene can be processed, nobody believes him and McCloud finds himself assigned as a school crossing guard. Soon however, the missing body is recovered from a Central Park lake and other women are turning up strangled all indicating it's the same killer at work. McCloud gets a glimpse of the killer moments after he commits his latest murder and the Chief decides to put him on the case after all. The dead women were all call girls who once worked for Karen Chandler, an ex-madam who was been in the business for a long time and is now retired. McCloud thinks Karen is having the girls killed to keep them from testifying against her at an upcoming trial but another killing puts that theory to rest. McCloud thinks he has the solution however.

During the foot pursuit, McCloud climbs over a wood fence in an alley. On a wall beyond the fence, a "peace symbol" and the word "peace" is painted on a wall. In the next shot, as McCloud runs up the stairs, the "peace symbol" is covered by a sign that reads "This Area Condemned." See more »

Crazy Credits

For some reason, the credits show McCloud getting shot and falling down in a scene from "Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue" (episode 1.2). This is repeated in "This Must Be the Alamo" (episode 4.5), but without the sound effects. See more »
