To Protect and to Serve

On a day off, Provenza and Flynn have skybox tickets for the big Dodgers Giants game, but when they discover a dead woman in Provenza's garage they ignore official duty and decide to wait until after the game to call in the crime. However, when they return to the crime scene, they get the shock of their lives: the body has disappeared! After learning Robbery/Homicide has found this mystery dead woman in a vacant lot, they take over the crime scene pretending they have orders from Chief Johnson. Their actions land Brenda in hot water and she chooses to go to bat for her team. While Brenda conducts a covert investigation to find the killer and delicately side steps Captain Taylor's efforts, she seeks favors from Fritz to help cover the detectives' lapse in judgment.
