I thought it was just a freak thing. You know a carjacking or something.
7 November 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

An old couple was standing in line before a red traffic light. Suddenly, a fender bender occurred, caused by a car behind them. The driver, together with another guy with a cast in the right arm, ran away shortly after. The elderly couple was stunned in noticing a wounded body was lying in the trunk. The victim is a black girl who works in a bank and she is the head of the loan department. She is pregnant and her soon to be husband (Albert Jones) is the bank manager. Doctors manage to save baby's life, but his mother dies shortly after the offspring. Briscoe and Green manage to find the two men at a local workshop, but later on detectives figure out they're actually two lowlife thieves who stole the car in a parking lot, looking for spare parts. There is another lead to follow: she could have granted a loan for drug trafficking and the one who called the hit may have two motives in killing the girl.

Another episode in which the victim lead two different lives: she's not so close to her husband (even if he's a supportive man so beloved by the mother in law) and she's drawn to more successful guys. Luckily popular sportsman are not above the law.
