ÂJackie and Danny investigate a cop shooting at a diner, but are surprised to find neither the cop nor the owner of the diner (Connie Markos) are still there. They eventually learn the cop is actually auxiliary police: a man named Mike Galatis who is Connieâ€™s nephew. Connie was threatened by loan sharks and Mike killed Billy in self-defense. Although Mike swears Connieâ€™s innocence, they find stolen handguns in Connieâ€™s storage unit, and when Connieâ€™s arrested, he puts the blame on Mike. Encouraged by Danny to do the right thing, Mike proves Connieâ€™s criminality and this forces Connie to reveal the bad guyâ€™s location.
