Less than an hour before Andy first met Leslie, she and Sam were responding to a robbery at a children’s party. A guy dressed in a giant chicken outfit was shot. Video surveillance shows the shooter exiting the location. He was not alone. It seems chicken man left the back door unlocked so an estranged father could sneak in to see his son. What our fine feathered friend didn’t know is that he was actually helping a drug addict abduct his young son.
Chris is picking up on all the unspoken tension between his two roomies. Gail eventually spills the details of her recent experience with Dov love which sends Chris into a tizzy. The ensuing tense discussion is put on hold when the rookies spot the kidnapper dad at a checkpoint. This brings us back to present time, as all officers converge to hunt for the suspect as he flees on foot.

It’s a tense standoff as the rest of the team arrives. The suspect has no way out. Sam convinces this desperate dad to show his son that he can still do the right thing. The gunman lowers his weapon. Everyone is safe. Make that almost everyone.
