  • Brenda and the Priority Homicide team investigate the murder of Rachel Hughes, a movie studio hair-stylist found beaten and stuffed into a storage box in a studio truck. She was getting divorced from her actor husband, Ryan Hughes, who visited the studio the previous evening in violation of the restraining order she had out against him. Though he maintains his innocence, claiming she asked him to stop by, Rachel previously spent some time in a shelter for battered women. When police find her current apartment, they discover it ransacked but holding evidence to convict her killer. Throughout, Brenda gets additional pressure on two fronts: Chief Pope and Commander Taylor want Brenda to hand off the case to the DA, as LA Times reporter Ricardo Ramos is writing an unfavorable series on Priority Homicide. At home, Brenda's parents drop by to lean on her into marrying Fritz.
