Terriers: Missing Persons
The boys show up at their diner for breakfast and it turns out a kid freaked out and has locked himself in the restroom. They make a deal with the owner: if they can get the kid out, they get free breakfast for a week. Turns out, the kid can't remember who he is or where he is. Hank and Britt takes him to the police station and the kid freaks out and disappears after seeing a poster about a missing college student.
Of course, Hank starts to investigate the missing student in hopes that it will shed some light on who the kid is and what happened to him.
On our serialized end, nothing more on the Montague story, but we see more of Steph slipping away. By the end of the episode, she decides to have Hank commit her to an assisted living facility. Just like last week, our standalone provides a parallel story to this. In the final confrontation with our amnesiac, the kid blubbers on and on about how he can't believe he did something wrong and that's not him and he shouldn't be allowed to live anymore. Hank tells the kid to suck it up because there are folks out there with bigger problems that will never get fixed and they have to live one day at a time.
Some more fun moments. Early on, Britt is worried that Katie will find the engagement ring he has stashed in her place. He thinks Katie can sense its presence. Hank makes a "Tell-tale Heart" reference about this. And another one at the end where our heroes bicker about who in the partnership is Batman and who is Robin (Britt: "I'm no sidekick.")
