The Finder: An Orphan Walks Into a Bar

After recovering one of John Fogerty's (guest-starring as himself) beloved guitars, Iraq veteran Walter Sherman helps a teenage boy (guest star Brett Davern) locate his missing father, a military pilot and war hero whose plane vanished after embarking on an undisclosed mission. Walter turns to Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada for insider information about the missing colonel. Meanwhile at the Ends of the Earth Bar, owner Leo and Walter keep a watchful eye on Willa, a teenager on parole from juvenile detention and employed at the bar as part of her probation.

He meets a white bearded backstage professional, and promises that the guitar he is looking for, will be with him by the next night. Walter gets a warm hug as Fogerty is about to start his opening number. Later, a man is running through an uptown hotel lobby with a guitar case embossed ‘Fogerty’ on the front. He rushes through corridors and saves himself from banging into trolleys. The he enters a stairwell area connected to an auditorium. He runs for his life, and hides behind a wall, which leads to another set of steps. Meanwhile, at the hotel auditorium, US Marshall Isabel and Leo are contemplating when to pull out the weapon. Now tired and sweating, the man with the guitar pulls out his gun while he thinks he is hiding, which is when he hears footsteps. It gets louder, and keeping the guitar aside, he gets ready to shoot down the approaching sound. The footsteps belong to a robot, and it has a camera fixed on it. The man, although surprised, takes it out in violent sparks. ..
