Steve calls it quits
27 August 2015 | by kapelusznik18See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Inspector Steve Keller, Michael Douglas, is shot in the heart-off camera-at the beginning of the SOSF episode and is in intensive care hanging on to his life by a thread while his partner, not feeling quite up to it, with his cherry pepper looking nose now grown to twice it size Det. Let. Mike Stone, Karl Malden, up to his neck in trying to rescue an entire bunch of jury members who convicted the Tanningers, whoever they are,in supporting local Bay Area terrorists. Even though two of the jury members voted to acquit thus according to the US Constitution, in not being a unanimous verdict,which actually had them found innocent!

With the leader of the terrorist trio crazy lady Susan Rosen, Patty Duke Austin,and her two accomplices the dead eyed stone cold killer Barbara Ross, played by all American girl next door Susan Dey, who had earlier shot Inspector Keller and the not quit playing with a full deck Black Panther member Arlen Washington, Ron Glass, who are threatening to murder the hostage jury members, including the ones who voted to acquit, one at a time if the Tanningers-again whoever they are-are not released within the next 12 hours. With Let. Det. Stone's getting Inspector Dan Robbins, Richard Hatch, who's an expert scuba diver to enter the abandoned freighter where the hostages are being kept that Let. Det. sniffed out and then engage the terrorist in a fire fight to free them. It's then that the police led but Let. Det. Stone in a surprise move will, by using tear gas, rescue the hostages before crazy lady Susan Rosen and her gang can finish them off!

***SPOILERS*** Let. Det. Stone's nose as well as Inspector Robbins diving skills worked to perfection freeing the hostages and capturing their captors but the best was yet to come. Inspector Keller, remember him, fully recovered from his near fatal injury and in the end, in seeking a less dangerous line of work, ended up teaching finger painting as well as arts & crafts at a SF kindergarten where, and that's the best part of his job, no one will take a shot at him: Or so he hopes!
