****SPOILERS**** Ironises episode that has to do with the gunning down of Officer Whitfield, Barbara "Babbs" Anderson,who as she's operated on to save her life we go back in time to see how this rich well connected society girl ended up becoming a San Francisco policewoman working for her boss the legendary Chief Robert T. Ironside, Raymond Burr. It was way back then when pretty Eve Whitfield was having a drink in a swank San Francisco bar that a robbery took place. It was there where a SFPD police officer having a drink to cool off after a hard days work was gunned down right in front of her. Giving the police or Chief Ironside, who at the time was able to walk on his own, a perfect description of the killer he was not only captured but it gave Eve who was tired of attending parties and fund raiser that made up her entire social life an idea of becoming a policewoman herself.

We now go back to the present with Eve on life support and her friend and fellow cop Det Sgt. Ed Brown, Don Galloway, trying to track down the person who shot Eve with the description she gave of him before she lost consciousness. It's during that time we again go back and forth in time to see Eve as a rookie idealistic policeman and a veteran cop going under the knife in order to save her life. We also get to see the connection between the cop that was shot and killed that Eve was a eye witness of and herself in how the police handled both cases.

****SPOILERS**** Sure enough the description that Eve gave of her assailant career criminal Frank Sharkey, Sturet Rice, was accurate enough to track him down and capture him. But at Eve's insistence of not taking revenge because he shot and possibly killed a policeman or in this case policewoman not to gun him down even if he didn't surrendered. Like as a civilian when Eve went out of her way to prevent the person who gunned down a policeman years ago, before she herself joined the SFPD, to let justice not emotions do the job. So did her friend and fellow cop Det Sgt. Brown go out of his way not to gun down Sharkey when cornered like a rat he meekly gave himself up. By the way Eve did pull through at the end of the episode giving it both an happy as well as thought-provoking ending as well!
