A strangler of women -- including an undercover cop -- moves through Central Park with the greatest of ease, and McCloud, a sergeant and two policewomen must track him down before he kills again.
Did You Know?
Sgt. F.J. Cameron watches McCloud on a firing range, impressed by his marksmanship, but puzzled when McCloud stops firing after only five rounds. McCloud explains to her that he always leaves the first chamber empty (with the hammer on it) to prevent the hair-trigger weapon from accidentally discharging as he draws it. This was a common practice with Colt .45 revolvers in the Old West, but McCloud never does it again (often firing more than six shots in a gunfight). See more
Vince Polk had to be scratching his head. Three weeks ago ("Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue," episode 1.2), he was a detective second grade relaying information to Chief Clifford (himself a lieutenant at the time). Today he is a detective lieutenant in charge of the investigation into the stranglings. Next week ("Our Man in Paris," episode 1.6), he will be a detective assisting Broadhurst. Then he is off the show for the next three seasons, reappearing (again as an assistant detective) in "This Must Be the Alamo" (episode 4.5). He keeps this job until the series finale, "McCloud Meets Dracula" (episode 7.6) when he is a S.W.A.T. tactical officer. See more
