When his mother Carlotta (Elsa Raven) is brutally mugged, Vinnie (Ken Wahl) decides to risk blowing his cover by telling her that he isn't a crook, but instead an undercover agent. Things take a sinister turn when Vinnie discovers that the man who beat up his mom has ties with Vinnie's crime-kingpin "pal" Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey). Meanwhile, our hero's OCB contacts Frank (Jonathan Banks) and Lifeguard (Jim Byrnes) struggle mightily to prevent Vinnie from literally outliving his usefulness.
