During a drug bust, one member of Team One struggles with a secret that could jeopardize their career.


Early in the morning, all SRU teams are preparing for a simultaneous strike against the local drug cartel and all their bases. Though the initial assault goes well, the cartel leader escapes. And the cop who was undercover in the cartel as an accountant is determined to pursue him himself, given that he's become romantically involved with the leader's girlfriend. The cop, irrationally refusing assistance from Team One, attempts to rescue the girlfriend himself and slap the cuff on his target. Things don't go as planned, as the girlfriend is shot by the cartel leader, claiming that she alerted the police. In a rage, the cop attempts to throw the murderer off a bridge, had not Wordy intervened.

At the end of the day, Wordy confesses to his team that he has Parkinson's Disease, which Ed found out about recently but Greg has known about. He didn't tell anyone about this because he wanted his team to think he was perfect. Everyone else confesses that they aren't perfect either.
