Jesse is sent to ask a singer if she will do a PSA for the department. When he sees her, she tells him she doesn't like cops. Later, her boyfriend/manager takes her away. Jesse has a funny feeling about him so he follows them. When they arrive at her home, some men are there, he gives her a video tape and tells her to hold on to it. Jesse arrives and she goes on the run. With help from Norman they find out she was close to a musical legend and they go to see him and she's there. Later the men who killed her manager tries to grab her but they grab her friend instead. Jesse asks her what's going on, she gives him the tape and they watch it. It shows a murder but unfortunately the man's face is not clear so there's nothing they can do. She then leaves because she saw something but doesn't tell them what she saw. Jesse then takes the tape to Norman to see if he can do something with it. And they learn who the killer is and his victim. Written by

Jesse meets with a Madonna type pop sensation Deborah Shain (Daphne Ashbrook) and ask her in appearing in the police department's anti-drug campaign. Deborah mistrusts the police for interfering each time she ran away from home and from her abusive father.

Meanwhile her manager and boyfriend Virgil (Lee Ving) is another charmless individual who is using an incriminating video tape to blackmail a record Neil Jacobs. Neil gets a couple of goons to kill Virgil and get the tape.

With Deborah's life in danger and also a possible suspect for Virgil's death. Street Hawk needs to find the goons and with the help of Norman they make the link between Neil and the death of his partner.

There are some 1980s songs in this episode such as Safety Dance and Bob Seger's Hollywood Nights which is a song that appeared in a few 1980s show. It enlivens a boring episode where most of the action takes place in the Universal lot.

It is a good job when Street Hawk is in hyperthrust that the roads are empty.
