The Good Guys: Partners

Jack and Dan investigate a simple dine-and-dash at a local restaurant, but things become complicated when Jack's former partner, who is now the assistant chief of the department, shows up after Liz's informant against a mafia kingpin is murdered. With a dirty cop behind the hit, and their lives on the line, everybody must learn that the only way to survive is to stay close to the ones they trust.

And before long, there is a man running out of the cafe having skipped his check. Dan has something interesting now. He gives chase, breaking through a glass wall, and before anyone knows it, Jack has to follow too.
