Dan wants redemption for a seven year old sting gone wrong so he goes back undercover in the mob movie homage Silvio's WayÂ episode of THE GOOD GUYS. Jack and Dan are assigned to a vandalism case where Sparky the fiberglass mascot has been pushed through an electronics store window three times, but during a stakeout spent in a bar, they run into a member of a crew Dan set up to rob a dog track seven years ago. It was the perfect heist and Dan overslept, missing his own sting and losing $400,000 of department money. Determined to get the crew this time, he sets them up in a new sting, but a couple of Bonnie and Clyde wannabe drug store robbers the rest of the department is chasing overhear and try to hijack the heist. Jack, meanwhile, nearly blows Dan's cover but Dan gets almost naked and beats Jack before tying him up in a freezer.
Plot-wise, this is one of my favorite episodes. The three stories come together well and I love that two idiots with Uzis are taken down, more or less, by two teenagers pushing over a giant mascot while the only successful criminals weren't even criminals at all until Dan planned their dog track heist and then he got them enough money to make honest lives for themselves. Plus, psycho Bonnie bickering with dumb Clyde cracks me up. This is Texas. Everyone has a shotgun.Â
