Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson has a lot going on in her life. Her parents, who don't yet know she and Fritz are engaged, come to visit; but, worse than that, having survived a recent attack by a serial killer, the police psychiatrist declares her unfit for duty. Chief Pope, forbidding her from conducting any investigations, orders her and Sgt. Gabriel to chauffeur a local TV journalist interested in doing a piece on how the police department is under-resourced. Soon after setting off on their ride-along, their car - with Gabriel, Brenda, the journalist and his camera operator inside - is attacked by a sniper. Assuming Brenda was the intended victim, Pope assigns two SWAT officers to guard her (further complicating her personal life), but evidence and a video of the crime suggests someone else may have been the target.
