Storyline

Ben enjoys his LAPD recruitment poster boy 'star' status. It is equaled less graciously by partner Sammy Bryant, who becomes the 'celebrity' hero of the day while moonlighting as nocturnal pop star bodyguard by accidentally witnessing and preventing a violent kidnapping, but still has a hard time allowing his ex and her new partner even to allow him discussing better custody terms. Cockily pursuing petty thief, Dewey Dudek gets badly hurt but enjoys being a pampered prick patient. Cooper's back injury may be rekindled by his overzealous rookie's charge on a giant suspect. Written by KGF Vissers

Southland Off Duty
13 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The final scene with Lydia opposite the guy behind bars and just from her face alone it is an example of how underrated she is on the show in how subtle her acting is. John really got hurt this week with a fellow police guy having a heart attack and him getting injured by a guy falling on him adding injury to his already hurt back. Regina King once again impressed me this week in most of her work this episode from the scene opposite the guy behind bars and also earlier in the episode when she was with her partner because those two actors have such great chemistry from each other they can really do anything. Sammy and Ben were less then impressive with one becoming famous as they make their way around with cases. A good episode if not for King's acting and how her character was handled this week.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Regina King)
