Kristy McNichol co-stars in this, probably one of her finest early TV roles
13 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Molly "Pete" Edwards (Kristy McNichol) is a young girl living on her own on the mean streets of the city, she is a tough little kid that is used to taking care of herself. She does have a father (King Moody) but as he has spent a lot of time in jail and the rest of his time drinking he isn't much of a father to her. Starsky and Hutch run into "Pete" at a local grocery stealing food and try to help her. Her father has some problems of his own. Before he went to jail the last time he and his buddies pulled off a diamond robbery and he ended up with the loot. Now that he is out again his friends want their cut of the money no matter what they have to do to get it. They accidentally kill him while he is trying to get away and now they begin searching for his daughter, the only person alive that might know where the diamonds are. Meanwhile Hutch has decided to try to help Molly and she moves in with him, at least until other arrangements can be made. The killers, having finally tracked her down kidnap her but she somehow manages to escape. Molly then decides to use herself as bait for a trap to capture the men that killed her father, but it is a dangerous game she is playing, a game that could get her killed.

This was Kristy McNichol's second appearance on this series and also her best. Her role here is much more developed than on the other two episodes in which she appeared. She is also given more time to develop her character and to fully display her acting abilities. She has several touching and memorable scenes and her character is completely essential to the story, in the case of this particular episode probably even more so than the show's stars.
