  • Sam discovers that his mother in 1973 owes money to a gangster who has a very cozy relationship with the precinct. But Sam is the only person who isn't willing to take the payoffs and look the other way.

  • Sam busts a guy for accosting his mother, only to find out he's a loan shark and she's into him for a thousand dollars. When his mother doesn't want to prosecute, she, unknowingly, leads Sam down a road that puts him on the outs with Annie.

  • Sam again reviles his NYPD colleagues' ease in accepting 'liberalities' from crime baron Elliott Casso, whom Hunt considers an invaluable source. Unease becomes despair when Sam finds out Ruth Tyler, his mother, already caring for him as a small boy, is working for the scum to pay off a loan-shark debt. Worse, she refuses his help although an earlier recruited 'working girl', who was sent to him with a double dirty agenda, is murdered for disobedience.
