|Summary by JoeyPare
Arizona. / USA
| The kidnapping of a young girl and a former case involving a young man makes Joey feel that his job as a cop is worthless. After finding the girl dead and discovering that one of the killers may walk free - LaFiamma walks into Beaumont's office and turns in his badge.
While on a stakeout waiting for the second killer to show up, Levon is approached by the dead girl's father and, in an ensuing struggle, Levon is shot in the shoulder. The father takes Levon, at gunpoint, to Reisner where the first killer is being held.
Estaban and Joe storm an apartment where they believe they second killer is hiding and after a short foot chase capture him and take him to Reisner. There they find Beaumont, detectives and a SWAT team in the hall and find out that Levon and the father are in the holding cell where the first killer is being held.
Having resigned, Joe disobeys Beaumont and goes in unarmed to find Lundy handcuffed to the bars. Joey talks the man out of killing his daughter's killer and makes him realize that his wife is suffering as much as he is.
While paramedics are administering first aid to Levon, Joe meets with Beaumont and takes his badge back.
(There is an excellent scene between Joe and police shrink sitting at a huge circular bar.)
