In season two opener Anatomy of a Frame Harry helps Lt Trench who is being investigated by internal affairs over a murder case. Trench is called to the house of a contact only to find her dead when he gets there, he himself is knocked out. When he comes too all evidence seems to point to him actually being guilty of her murder.
As Harry investigates he discovered links to a group of heroin traffickers and the death of a young police colleague who worked for Trench’s department.
We get a nice reminder about how Harry is considered to be a drop-out when he visits him on his ever being fixed up boat.
Anthony Zerbe is chief guest star as Trench and he would become Harry’s new police confidante for the second season. Otherwise the most familiar face belongs to Rene Auberjonois as the crooked Rabbit.
