The Crazy Gang (Episode #1210H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jan 26, 2020 -- 5:00 AM

UCOS is threatened with closure following their perceived mishandling of the Henway case. Their final case begins with the bloody murder of a political activist 15 years ago at The Madhouse - a hub for those suffering from mental health issues. Just as the team is getting somewhere, the order comes from above for Ted, Danny and Steve to cease the investigation. But in true UCOS spirit, the boys throw away the rulebook and uncover something much bigger than just a straight forward murder, involving some top officials, a multinational drugs company and signs of a massive cover up. Danny and Fiona's relationship hangs in the balance as she must give an answer to the job offer in Aberdeen and Sasha is pulled into a game of political cat and mouse as she realizes UCOS are merely puppets in Cynthia's game.
(Note: this is the series finale.)

Life Expectancy (Episode #1209H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jan 26, 2020 -- 4:00 AM

A blood-stained bust is uncovered during some reconstruction work in a cemetery, pointing UCOS to the murder of an alternative medicine practitioner, bludgeoned to death seven years ago. The evidence leads to the pioneering but controversial world of cryopreservation - the practice of keeping "clinically dead" patients frozen in time to extend their life cycle. In a sensitive case, with the watchful eye of their bosses upon them, Sasha is determined that her team won't put a foot wrong. But with suspects constantly running rings around them and the sobering possibility that two perpetrators are still at large, UCOS must go out on a limb if they are to unlock their most difficult cold case yet. Fiona is offered a job too good to be true in Aberdeen, leaving Danny bereft at the thought of losing her. Ted is devastated when he realizes he's lost his lucky cigarette case, and Sasha has an interesting offer from the notoriously cut-throat Assistant Commissioner Cynthia Kline.

Lottery Curse (Episode #1208H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jan 19, 2020 -- 5:00 AM

A skeleton uncovered in the foundations of a swimming pool is identified as Cheryl - a young, pretty lottery winner reported missing 17 years ago. UCOS's prime suspects are her fellow quiz team mates, who won their lucky windfall as part of a syndicate. But while some have put their money to good use, the victim's boyfriend has fallen on hard times and the media remain convinced he is the prime suspect in her murder. As allegations of affairs, fights and betrayal begin to surface, the team is left to ponder whether money really is the root of all evil. Sasha is set for a night in studying, but the boys have different plans and plot to set her up with Fiona's colleague Adam.

The Russian Cousin (Episode #1207H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jan 19, 2020 -- 4:00 AM

UCOS investigate the murder of a private investigator, who is stabbed through the heart in a suspected robbery gone wrong. The answers may well lie with the victim's last three cases, but it'll take the whole team's expertise to crack the codes within his mysterious notebook. The movements of a rare collectable stamp 'Russian Cousin' could hold the key to the whole investigation - if only UCOS could track it down. Steve rents out his flat to a pair of demanding and hot-tempered Italians while Ted is determined to avoid a trip to the doctor for fear of coming face to face with his own mortality.

The Fame Game (Episode #1206H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jan 11, 2020 -- 10:34 PM

While Sasha is occupied with an intensive training course, the boys' investigations take them to a lookalike agency, where their top two acts were found dead in an apparent double suicide 13 years ago. In an industry reliant on the art of the illusion and their suspects intent on giving them the run-around, Ted, Steve and Danny are convinced there's more to this case than first meets the eye. Steve can't contain his excitement when their enquiries take them to the door of one of his football heroes - but his glee is short-lived when he remembers an expensive promised birthday gift. Sasha tries to instill discipline in her son Alex, and Danny and Fiona end up in a stalemate over their living situation.

With Sasha back in fighting form, UCOS investigate the death of a talented cricket prodigy, a star of the pitch and apple of his father's eye, yet loathed by his teammates.

Meanwhile, wise to Steve's monetary problems, Danny appoints himself as his personal financial adviser.
