Dog is sick as a dog, but he still must lead the hunt for a fugitive named James. James' girlfriend tries to cover for him, but Dog surprises James in his bedroom and leads him away in cuffs. On the way to jail, Dog finds out that the reason James missed a court date was to protect his girlfriend from her ex-boyfriend. James also explains that a previous conviction led to legal trouble and ex-con discrimination that left him utterly disheartened. Sympathetic as always, Dog encourages James to persevere.
