With Annie Cabot back from her maternity leave and her replacement, Helen Morton, staying on as part of the team, Alan's got his work cut out trying to make the two girls see eye to eye.
Their first case involves a young boy, taken from his home by two people posing as social workers. Banks puts Annie on the sidelines, thinking a child abduction case is too much for a new mum to handle, but she's determined to be back on the front line and prove herself.
Meanwhile, Helen's having her own personal problems with a delinquent son who won't listen to her. Can they all put their issues aside and solve the case?
