Motor City Murders
Sanchez looks at the kids at the hospital, where they are getting checked out. Mason calls Stone into her office. She's putting him on homicide, and giving him Sanchez as a partner... which means more flirting and less of Stone dressing like a hoodlum. Everyone wins. Longford gets a call from Italy... he got the house, but he looks sad about it. Washington stares at the board o' murders, when Fitch walks over and says that every day is like the first day and that it never gets old. Washington wants to know about Fitch's claim that he occasionally feels suicidal and has hurt the ones he loves. Fitch's vague response: "It was true when I said it." Getting to know you... getting to know all about you. Fitch explains his mantra is to get the crimes solved... to make room for the next one. He then jokes that they are possibly the last assembly line in Detroit... which would be funny, if it weren't sorta true and miserably depressing to consider. Washington gets to change the crimes to solved.
The new partners then take James out of holding and hand him off to the cop who will take him to lock up, but as soon as they let him go and they've turned their backs, he's stolen the gun off of the corrections officer and shoots at Washington. Fitch quickly shoots at Burke, then calls for help as the strains of the "Baby Love" ringtone play. Yikes. What a cheerful and disturbing way to end the pilot of a show. And by that I mean I love it. Much more interesting than your typical procedural where the bad guys get locked up all nice and easy and the good cops just keep on fighting the fight unscathed.
