When a reporter is murdered while covering the new "French Connection", Nash comes face-to-face with a startling revelation – his brother, a Vietnam MIA, thought dead for the last 24 years, may be alive and in San Francisco.
A show played largely for laughs (and with Walker not involved in the story; he has a few scenes checking in with Alex's obstetrician to try to find the sex of their upcoming baby): Trivette leads a group of Rangers backstage at Las Colinas Studios (and the actors' trailers for this show) to investigate skulduggery on a movie being filmed in Dallas.
Killer Lavocat breaks his gang members out of prison to help kill the Rangers he determines a threat to his life. Lavocat caused the death of CD, Jenson, and attempted to kill Trivette. A Hayes Cooper story parallels the modern day story.
Caroline Larkin is a new teenage girl in town from a poor working-class Ohio family who wants to be accepted into a local high school clique. So she lies to the snobbish girls of the group about seducing Eddie whom she develops a crush on. But Caroline's domineering, overprotective father has Eddie arrested for statutory rape after learning about Caroline's so-called score. Meanwhile, Eric Turner is a former Baywatch lifeguard and Mitch's old friend who was the best of the team, until he lost his job after an accident which injured his back and confined him to a wheelchair. The paraplegic Turner also wants to reconcile his lost relationship with the Australian lifeguard Megan whom be pushed away along with everyone else that tried to comfort him over his disability.
An angry and frustrated Eddie is suspended from Baywatch by Mitch over the statutory rape charges and feels abandoned when no one believes his innocence pleas, especially after his juvenile criminal record is made public. Shauni, despite some doubt about Eddie's true story, attempts to track down Caroline, who has suddenly disappeared, to get the real story to clear Eddie's name. Meanwhile, the reckless Turner is still trying to win back Megan when Ross, a handsome marine biologist that Megan is now dating, arrives and Turner tries to impress her by hand-gliding off a cliff.
