Life: Powerless

While attending one of her AA meetings, Danni Reese thinks she hears a fellow attendee confess to rape. Unable to let go of this information, and despite Crews’ advice to drop it, Reese becomes preoccupied with getting this individual to confess. Her persistence puts her face to face with a very dangerous man in a life threatening standoff. And, while on a stake out with Lt. Davis, Crews learns his former partner, Bobby Stark, lied to him about his involvement in an infamous Los Angeles bank robbery years earlier.
