Sheriff Valenti loses his tin star in this well-scripted episode, which finds the lawman taking orders from an ambitious FBI agent.
Jim Valenti’s unorthodox methods during the search for a missing girl draw the ire of a by-the-book police officer (Keith Szarabajka) and an equally intolerant judge (Robert Katims), who suspends Roswell’s leading law enforcer. The sheriff gets a temporary reprieve when an eager Federal agent requests his help with the case. However, playing second fiddle doesn’t sit well with Valenti (William Sadler), who has no choice but to keep his demanding new boss in the dark when the investigation takes an unexpected turn.
