Scott and Erica team-up alongside Hooch to protect a young witness from a dangerous assassin. Meanwhile, Scott’s relationship with Brooke starts to fizzle out.
The episode is completely Erica/Scott centric as he enlists the K9 trainer’s help with building a bond with his new witness – a boy with autism. Anthony forms an immediate connection with Hooch but remains wary of Scott. This results in several heartwarming sequences between the marshal and Erica. Finally, the chemistry is beginning to shine and their relationship is making progress in the right direction – who isn’t Team Erica?
Brooke is less receptive to Scott’s affection, hinting that he is overbearing by contacting her everyday. Okay, so maybe Scott is one of the good guys considering Brooke has been at the forefront of his mind since she reappeared in his life. Give the guy some credit here; he may be blind to Erica’s genuine interest in him but he’s suffering from a case of puppy love with Brooke – no pun intended.
Whilst Scott deals with his own case, Laura finds herself at her wits end with her father’s investigation. To say this storyline is being drawn out would be the understatement of the century. What do we actually know about their father? Other than what the original movie told us, Turner Sr is a mystery. It’s probably time to start wrapping this arc up – not that there is much to end – but it’s likely we’ll be left hanging until the finale for the case to be solved.
Episode 9 is full of adorable Scott and Erica content. Scott is less high maintenance and let’s himself have fun on the job. Brooke seems to be digging her relationship with Scott into the ground, not that we’re complaining, but it’s nice to see that Turner is actually growing as a character.
