The next returning Alcatraz inmate is Ernest Cobb, a crack-shot who shot series of crows and people in different cities all over he US before being arrested. He deliberately shot a guard in the leg to be relocated to Alcatraz, hell-bent on a quiet, private cell. Warden Edwin James sadistically kept denying him isolation, leading to more inside crimes. Diego 'Doc' Soto's knowledge proves invaluable to catch Cobb before he makes his third victims batches before moving to another time, but the stress and danger of the chase make him doubt if he's fit as SFPD partner. Emerson Hauser remains frustratingly secretive and again seizes the recaptured villain for openly hostile 'interrogation', like Jack Sylvane's despite his claim to remember nothing.
Did You Know?
On the roof, just before Hauser shoots Cobb in the hand, a gun cocking sound is heard. His gun is a hammerless model incapable of making that sound. This sound is also usually heard when Madsen pulls or puts away her gun, and is likewise a hammerless model. This sound effect is a common TV firearm error added for dramatic effect. See more
