"The last two months had been more than difficult. The Department had been effectively decimated by Asian Flu, and those unlucky enough not to go down with it had found themselves working eighteen, twenty-hour days.

The short vacation had been a kind of goal to aim for, a carrot on the end of a stick. And now it had been whisked away. It wasn't as if a second Charles Manson had suddenly arisen, or the Syndicate had pulled off the crime of the century. Parker Centre wanted a man moved from Point A to Point B. They were short-staffed, and looked to Metro. Metro in the shape of Captain Harold C. Dobey, looked to Starsky and Hutch. The world can be grossly unfair at times."

Starsky and Hutch meet Aliens from Outer Space. Sort of!

 

"Okay. What did you find out? We don't go anywhere without you telling me what all that stuff about Arcturans was in aid of."

Hutch told him. Starsky's eyes got very wide.

"You don't believe any of that, do you?" Hutch asked carefully.

"Are you kidding? It sounds like half-a-dozen of the worst fifties sci-fi all mixed up and regurgitated. Aliens from Outer Space try to take over the Earth, foiled only by the valiant resistance-fighters . . . No, wait a minute, it's the plot from 'The Invaders.' Are they lizards?"

"The Arcturans or the Alph . . ."

"Either one."

He was standing on the edge of what looked like one of the cleared ridess--a grassy track beneath the arched graining of the trees--that branched from the road. Logically, if he followed it, he should get back on the road. But--which way?

"I took the road less traveled by."

All hope abandon, ye who enter here......

"A sneakered foot hit the door in a jarring kick, the catch gave way, door swinging wide. A barking shout of "POLICE! FREEZE!" as he went in, low, and the ear-splitting clatter of automatic fire, savage spitting of flame, impact of lead hitting like so many sledgehammers. A set-up. Dickenson set us up . . ."

Hutch. The pain of loss was sharper than any of his injuries. He concentrated on it, purposely, until it blunted to a kind of bruised ache under his ribs. He couldn't afford to let it get to him. Couldn't spare it the time. There would come a time, though. That much he promised himself. What he knew, and his ability to survive would get him through. He had to believe that. He had another reason to make it, too. He wanted to get them. To make them pay.

Vengeance is mine.

If Hutch didn't make it...

"Hutch!" His voice was lost in the rattle of the sea on stones, the ceaseless song of the wind. "Hutch!" Scenes flashed onto the screen of his imagination—Hutch climbing the uncertain cliff-face to reach Merlin's Keep. The rock crumbling under his feet—a bone-splintering fall of God-knows how far—"Hutch!" And the silent sprawl of a broken body beneath the uncaring bastions... "Oh, Christ, Hutch—" It was almost a sob, and he began to run.

"some dark night when you're all alone ...

Only it's not dark and I'm not alone. Hutch, in the doorway, the light in a hazy moonglow around his hair..."

Hutch felt himself drifting back asleep and relished the sensation.

"Hutch," his partner said, destroying the moment as only he could. "I've been thinking."

"We made it, partner! We made it!"

"Ah, Hutch ..." A whisper, gentle, regretful, yearning. "Oh, babe, didn't you know I wouldn't go without saying goodbye?"

"They'd always watched us, right from the start of our teaming. We were too unconventional, too careless of the Great God Official Procedure, and that was not appreciated. But the hazing had never bothered us any, beyond raising our hackles. We were damn good at our jobs, confident in ourselves and each other.

But now it was different. Starsky I did not doubt, never could. Our team was a whole far greater than the sum of its two components—or had been. Because now it had a weak link. Me. It was a very bitter truth."

The Timeline of this story is immediately prior to 'The Snitch' and 'Targets Without A Badge.'

"Working with Starsky for twelve weeks had brought home to me just how little I really knew about the man. Oh, I got all the basic info -- but that told me about as much as a rap sheet. All the important stuff -- where he was coming from, what made him tick -- was still a closed book to me."
