Storyline

Bringing in a cocky criminal, Ben and Cooper pass a school bus which was robbed of the kids' field trip cash by two armed teenagers. Standing around is a wandering orphan, whose rambling about a 'magic cave', although waved away by the social worker, inspires their seemingly hopeless search, leading them to its grim content. Sammy peeks in a file to identify Nate's Latino murder suspect and kidnaps him, makes him dig a grave but walks away, only to find widow Moretta has sold Petey's home to move back to her parents in El Paso. A lush would-be actress, the sole witness in a murder after the rookie cop failed to mirandize the suspect, proves troublesome for her minders but also acts far too much. Written by KGF Vissers

"We gotta speak up for those who can't speak up for themselves"
27 January 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

It's a staple of cop shows that first responders never know what they're walking into when they answer a call. And 'Fixing a Hole' is another exhibit for the court. In this case, the horrifying subject of child abuse is cleverly composed as a missing child case. those scars run deep for Cooper.

This is compelling from start to finish, whether it's Sammy's ever more confused situation with his partner's family, his own thirst for street justice, or Cooper's focused effort to find out where this kid came from. That avenue leads to an unbelievably sad end (and so does Sammy's) but it also offers serious character development on both fronts.

Geez, the writing on this show.

9/10
