John Cooper and Ben Sherman are the first responders to a gruesome triple homicide in Hancock Park, where a mother is bludgeoned to death and her young daughters are found bound, gagged, raped and dead in their bedrooms. In investigating the case, Lydia Adams and Rene Cordero realize they have two very different styles of doing detective work. Sammy Bryant continues to have problems with his wife, who seems unable to complete even the simplest of tasks. Meanwhile Sherman confronts Cooper about his increasing reliance on pain pills.
