Two reckless teenage friends of Hobie are involved in power-ski hit and run accident that leaves a windjammer rider dead. When Hobie discovers that they are responsible, he is torn between protecting his friends identity and leaving the case unsolved to the local beach patrol officer, Sgt. Garner Ellerbee, or telling Mitch and risk facing his anger since he has repeatedly warned Hobie over the dangers of water skiing. Meanwhile, Craig discovers that Eddie is in fact homeless after catching him sleeping in his lifeguard tower in which he and Gina offer their storage closet for him to crash until he finds a place of his own. Also, Trevor continues to stir up more trouble for the Baywatch lifeguards in which Jill is both drawn to and repulsed by his arrogance and disregard for the local county regulations.
