In the final episode of Louis Theroux's LA Stories, Louis spends time in the twilight world of the city's paroled sex offenders, whose crimes have made them pariahs living on the fringes of society. The State of California has some of the toughest regulations anywhere in America controlling sex offenders. On leaving prison they can spend years on parole, tagged and tracked, and a lifetime on an online sex offenders register. Louis spent several months at some of the hostels in Los Angeles where sex offenders live, talking in depth to sex offenders themselves as well as the people charged with monitoring them. The tough rules governing where they can live and who they can see make it hard for registered sex offenders to find work or even housing, and many are forced into homelessness. Meeting these outcasts Louis asks whether these tough rules keep society safer and when, if ever, it is right to give sex offenders a second chance.

Los Angeles is home to more than a quarter of a million dogs - from the pampered pooches of Beverley Hills to the pit bull terriers of the projects. Louis Theroux enters the bizarre world of LA's dogs, meeting the characters whose lives revolve around the city's huge canine population. In the toughest neighbourhoods of south LA, he has a terrifying encounter with a 'weaponised' dog, trained to attack on command, and goes on patrol with 'Dogman', whose mission is to rescue some of the thousands of stray and feral pit bulls roaming the streets. At the city's biggest animal shelter, Louis meets the hard-pressed staff, whose heartbreaking job includes euthanizing thousands of unwanted dogs every year. He also encounters the middle-class Americans who adopt some of these delinquent dogs, as well as the colourful dog-training gurus who claim to be able to take the ghetto out of the dog once the dog has been rescued from the streets.
