POLICE LOG: All officers, be on the lookout for a triple-murderer who escaped a prison transport. Suspect bears a distinctive snake tattoo across his head and face. Escapee is on the streets and may be tweaking on meth. Detailed report follows:
The rookies are assigned their partners for the shift. Andy is riding with Sam Swarek, back in uniform now that his cover has been blown. Luke Callaghan tells Andy that if Swarek gives her any grief to give him a call over in homicide. Callaghan’s obviously got a little thing for her. As for Sam, he tells Andy he’s not her boyfriend, so he will not be holding her hand. Andy responds, “Well, that’s great because I don’t date cops anyway.”
Andy wants to look for the escaped triple murderer. He should be easy to spot; as he has a lovely snake tattooed across his bald head and is affectionately referred to as Snakeface. But Sam has other plans. He wants Andy to arrest a woman named Emily. He produces a warrant which turns out to be a takeout menu for Chinese food. The document isn’t legally binding, but it does offer some hot and spicy Szechwan cuisine.
