'Hill Street Blues' Season 4 Episodes
“Here's Adventure, Here's Romance”
A multiple slaying in a gay bar has the homosexual community clamoring to Furillo for more protection. And an off-duty cop who was an eye witness is afraid to identify the psychopath responsible since it will expose his private life.
In the absence of former chieftain Jesus Martinez (now incarcerated), a power vacuum develops in the ranks of Los Diablos.

“Death by Kiki”
The Hill Street force sees the dark side of the normally controlled Hill. Captain Furillo notices Hill’s downward path as he and a dogged Renko try to offer help before the street cop is canned for good.
“Doris in Wonderland”
Furillo is caught in the middle when Chief Daniels tries to put the squeeze on a new rival mayoral candidate, a black commander in another precinct.
Relying on a useful tip, the Hill Street blues finally nab Nicky Casner, a notorious bandit whose courteous modus operandi earns him their grudging admiration and the name “Emily Post Bandit.”

Detective Belker tries to go undercover as a disabled person to snag an automatic bank teller thief but his every move is dogged by a gritty wheelchair hotshot.
“The Russians are Coming”
Three touring Russian journalists – two men and a woman - are very curious to observe the law-and-order procedures as practiced on the Hill.
“Ratman and Bobbin”
A quiet fear grips the police as one by one – and sometimes by twos – cops are gunned down on the street with no apparent motive.
“Nichols from Heaven”
A maniacal cop killer continues to reap more victims as paranoia slowly creeps in among the shaken Blues.
“Fuchs Me? Fuchs You!”
Furillo does some house cleaning when he orders the arrest of fellow cops for running a ring of corruption.

Sergeant Esterhaus dies suddenly in the arms of Grace Gardner and the entire station is grief stricken, with each officer trying to cope with the death by remembering good times.
“The Other Side of Oneness”
The two teenage Diablos that Furillo reluctantly set free – in exchange for information from their leader, Jesus Martinez - rob and slay an old man.

When Joyce is assigned to defend Williams Mullins for murder, she notices the effect that his threatening brother Timothy has on the prosecution’s witness.
“The Count of Monty Tasco”
A horrendous day has Capt. Furillo slowly caving in to pressure when the mayor relieves him of his command.
The disgruntled Blues try to sort things out in the wake of Furillo’s departure, while the harried captain is tempted to take his first drink in seven years. Meanwhile, Calletano resorts to a daring strategy to restore Furillo to the Hill.
The Mayor’s handpicked head of the Youth Corps Summer Job Program is Marcus Peabody, an ex-member of the Blood Gang. His style and administration draw more than just resentment from the other gangs.
The biggest gang war in six years threatens to explode on the Hill. Death is in the air when the rival Diablos and Blood gangs – the latter headed by recent mayoral appointee Marcus Peabody – stage pitched battles and count their casualties.
Renko thinks that open window in the church looks mighty good just minutes before his wedding to Daryl Ann, especially after a day that’s seen him and partner Hill lose their patrol car with its expensive fitted computer.
