Southland is strongest when it allows the police officers' work to bleed into their personal lives.
In Tuesday's episode (10/9c on TNT) that's the case for Detectives Nate Moretta (Kevin Alejandro) and Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy).
"You get to go on a journey with Nate and Sammy and sort of discover who they are," Alejandro tells TVGuide.com "You learn how they deal with life, their personalities and how they grab on to certain things. There's some big stuff that happens. It's one of my favorite episodes."
Through the second season, Nate and Sammy have been part of a task force building a case against Trinny Day (Wood Harris), an ex-gang member who claims to have cleaned up his act. The case intensifies when gangsters take aim at a club and kill someone with connections to a cop.
