After nine months, Southland is back and as good as ever. The first fresh episodes made since the show moved to TNT, season 3 starts off with an episode that encapsulates what makes this series great.
It’s New Years in Los Angeles, and the detectives find themselves dealing with the aftermath of two similar cases – which have had very different outcomes. Sammy and Nate investigate the deaths of two gang members who were recently acquitted in a rape trial, while Lydia and her new partner, Josie, try to prove a security guard is guilty of the rape and murder of a cleaning lady.
Elsewhere, officers Cooper and Sherman are called to a bank robbery and find themselves in a shootout. Thanks to a bit of quick thinking by Cooper, an injured cop is saved, but the only robber left alive promptly commits suicide. Cooper’s back pain issues are reaching a head – as is his addiction to prescription painkillers – and witnessing the robber’s suicide may have lead Ben to seek a little distraction with a cougar-esque woman. Will this end well?
