Eleven cents. Need I say more?

BOLANDER, MUNCH and GEE
Unlike, MURDER SHE, WROTE, H:LOTS prefers to kill besties rather than have them falsely accused of murder. When Gee’s bestie Sam – a community activist type who runs his own newspaper – is gunned down at a restaurant, Gee assigns Bolander and Munch to the case. This is a welcome distraction to Munch who is barely treading water in the stormy seas of the Bayliss/Lewis/Zoole love triangle and the havoc it has unleashed.

BAYLISS and PEMBLETON
Bayliss gets some unfortunate news regarding Emma’s affections. Namely, that he’s not the only cop currently starring in the Coffin Follies. Instead of chasing down killers he’s chasing down – with Pembleton a reluctant partner in crime – his understudy, an unimpressive city cop named Andy. The two were supposed to be trying to determine why an elderly woman was stuffed into a freezer. Oh well. Bayliss confronts Emma about things and gets some more bad news – she’s planning on more out of town tryouts. This sends Bayliss into a tailspin resulting in a cookie and beer binge and ends with him pulling a gun on a clerk who won’t spot him eleven cents. Now you know why all convenience stores have those “leave a penny, take a penny” trays.

FELTON, RUSSERT and HOWARD
Felton’s wife ran off with the kids causing him to call every HoJo on the Eastern Seaboard. Why a woman married to a cop – a good one at that – thinks she’s gonna be able to hide from him (while using their joint credit cards) is beyond me. Meanwhile, Felton is getting shit from the other women in his life, Howard and Russert. The latter appears to be ready to close the book on their relationship.

    You crack me up. And about women marrying cops — I think there are a lot of people who go into relationships thinking somehow they’ll be immune to the shit their partners manage to pull on everyone else. People are weird. And H:LOTS does people (and weird) better than any other cop show I’ve seen.

    This is message I took from the episode.
