Malloy is filling in for Mac, so Reed has a new partner (Gus Corbin) who has been on the job nine months. They stop a car with a woman and her daughter who are chasing a man who stole her purse. They find the purse in a garbage can outside a church and the suspect inside in the confessional. Reed and Corbin spot a break-in at a pharmacy where the thieves used the store to break into the pawn shop next door. One suspect is captured on the roof but Corbin defies Malloy's orders and searches the pawn shop before help arrives. He spots the second suspect and he and Malloy capture him. Afterwards Malloy gives Corbin a lecture on safety and risk taking with which Corbin agrees. A pursuit turns into a foot chase but Corbin loses his gun. He continues anyway catching the suspect who is unaware Corbin is unarmed.

Near the end of the episode, when Gus Corbin (Mark Harmon) is speaking with Jim Reed, Corbin's hair & lighting changes dramatically when the camera pans from Corbin to Reed & back to Corbin. It's an obvious result of poor editing. Looks like the producer or director had Harmon re-shoot the scene. See more
