Four times an LA perfectionist bank-robber made the clients-hostages strip before locking them in, so none would do anything, and violates one, but quickly slips into more violent assault against uniformed men. The team realizes he started out as a clever thief, but the opportunity made the sadist awake, who forces odd couples to play sex in front of the others and becomes more violent. The race is on, fearing he'll become murderous...

This episode is based on a slew of robberies committed on Long Island in 1982 by a gang of 5 men known as the Sutter Avenue Boys. They first hit a parking garage in Flatbush, Brooklyn where they robbed and beat a parking attendant and 6 other people, leaving with cash, jewelry, and a Cadillac. While fleeing, they happened upon a graduation party in Plainview where they robbed and beat 22 house guests and the owners of the home, and raped 2 women. Finally, they robbed the Sea Crest Diner in Old Westbury, NY. They told everyone (more than 80 diners plus employees) to undress and forced them all perform sexual acts; if they did not comply with orders they were beaten. They raped a waitress and shot 2 people. Three members were apprehended the following day as they were leaving their apartment to fence the items they had stolen off their victims; the remaining two turned themselves in later. They were arraigned on 822 counts, including 3 rapes, 15 assaults, and 84 robberies and sentenced to 3,000 years each. Unfortunately, due to a technicality within the law, each is eligible for parole after 30 years, which the victims and law enforcement oppose vehemently each time a member of the gang has a parole hearing.

At the very end of the episode, when the ambulance door closes, we see an orange balloon fly off. If you look closely, you can see another balloon in the distance, most likely from a previous take. See more
