Teenaged Emma Karn, is missing and Ken, her well-connected Beverly Hills lawyer dad, is much more worried about political repercussions than about his underage daughter. Grace Karn calls LAPD Det. Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) for his help and he recruits young talent, Off. Brian Shafe and Off. Charmain Tully, to go far out undercover on the teen party scene. They learn Emma was seen with a guy named Charles Manson. Their worries are fueled by Manson's (arrest) jacket: he is 33 and has spent half of his life inside for crimes ranging from possession to rape and attempted murder. Hodiak and Shafe get new information from Manson's PO; Ken has a very close encounter. Written by LA-Lawyer

Did You Know?


David Duchovny's character, Sam Hodiak, is strumming a guitar in the home of Mike Vickery while Hodiak and Brian Shafe are pressuring Vickery for information. Vickery is clearly upset and nervous about Hodiak messing with his guitar, telling him that it's a Martin. This seems to be a reference to Martin Guitars, the makers of acoustic guitars for well over a century. These guitars are known for their high quality and sound, and treasured by their owners.
