Welcome to Los Angeles, circa 1982, during the rock 'n' roll, cocaine-infused revelry of the Sunset Strip. But all is not glitter as there's a serial killer on the loose, and two detectives find themselves on one of the toughest cases of their careers, on the series premiere.
Jack and Paco get a lead on the serial killer's next possible victim and race against the clock to try and track her down before the killer gets to her; Kent struggles over whether or not to invite Betty to take part in his murderous rampage when it becomes clear that she doesn't trust him and may leave him, and Jack and Paco continue to search for Karen, who has disappeared from the club.
Jack tries to find out more about Kent's secret adulthood. Meanwhile, Betty reveals to Kent she is ready to take on a new life with him. Vicki goes out with some older boys and ends up on The Strip, where Kent and Betty are waiting.
Jack focuses on a woman from the past who may have been the catalyst for the murderer's current killing spree; Betty decides to go all-in as Kent's partner, and together they troll a club in search of a victim; Karen is offered a job with "Rolling Stone," which does not please Diver; a menacing old flame of Betty's reemerges and sets his sights on trying to reignite their troubled past; and Dianne finds herself in dire straits when her allegiances are questioned by a powerful drug lord.
Betty finally introduces Kent to her kids, but her perfect fantasy soon ends when Jimmy blackmails her. Jack and Paco begin to connect the dots, and Jack misses a direct encounter with Kent but finds new evidence inside a building. Meanwhile, Jack and Dianne navigate their feelings for each other.
Having identified where Kent works, Jack and Paco unleash a full-scale LAPD manhunt for Kent. Kent visits Betty at the hospital to break up with her, and they begin hatching a plan to get the police off their backs. Meanwhile, Karen begins to realize her addiction to the spotlight.
Twisted sex, murder dud set to the sounds of the 1980s.
