11"The Twisted Triangle"Georg FenadyJoseph GunnOctober 24, 1989 (1989-10-24)106
A woman claims that she was raped in the middle of the day in the elevator leading to her apartment. Her rich and influential husband demands immediate police action, but as Daniels and Molina vigorously pursue the investigation, elements of the woman's story don't seem to quite add up.
22"The Living Victim"Charles BailBurton ArmusOctober 26, 1989 (1989-10-26)103
When factory worker Joe Flynn's body is found inside a parked car, Molina and Daniels have their hands full with a long list of suspects, all of whom are happy to learn that the universally disliked man is dead.
33"The Payback"Georg FenadyElliott AndersonOctober 31, 1989 (1989-10-31)110
Daniels and Molina are assigned to the homicide of Darrell Fowler, a reclusive ex-Marine turned wealthy real estate developer. The investigation begins with an interview of Fowler's business partner, Emmett Stone, which leads the detectives to investigate the source of Fowler's wealth; Fowler had grown up in foster homes and joined the Marine Corps virtually penniless, but when he was discharged four years later he was a multimillionaire.
44"The Bigamist"Charles BailSteve JohnsonNovember 2, 1989 (1989-11-02)107
Distraught Lauren Taylor arrives at the station claiming that her husband has stolen all her possessions and cleaned out their bank accounts. Daniels and Molina explain to her that her husband did nothing wrong but agree to take one shot at finding him. They go to his place of employment only to discover that he quit without notice. After talking to an employee, they pull the man's office phone records and follow up on a number that appears frequently. There, they find another woman claiming to be his wife who has a similar story to Lauren's.

Daniels and Molina are called to the upscale Mayfield Hotel, where Steven Lewis was found dead from an apparent heart attack. Although the case seems routine, a few small details — the doctor leaving the scene hurriedly because he can't stand the sight of a dead body, and the victim never being seen the hotel staff — don't add up and, during a lull in police work, the detectives decide to look deeper into the deceased's life.
66"Automated Muggings"Georg FenadyJoseph GunnNovember 9, 1989 (1989-11-09)102
Daniels and Molina are assigned to work a series of robberies where a lone gunman holds up individuals after they have made withdrawals from an automated teller machine. One curious aspect of the investigation is that every robbery takes place when patrol cars in the area are occupied on other calls.

The theft of Greg Elias' boat is reported by his lawyer, and Daniels and Molina investigate why Elias is reluctant to talk to them.
