Meanwhile, Nolan and Bailey faced an attack in their home, and Nyla’s baby girl, Lyla, was kidnapped from her crib. Despite surviving the attack, Nolan and Bailey were left shaken. Chen and Bradford, known as “Chenford” to fans, also encountered masked attackers while following a lead.

Elsewhere, Diaz and Wesley welcomed their baby girl in the hospital. The leader of the attackers, Luke Moran, harbored a grudge against the Mid-Wilshire police station and ultimately died during the confrontation with the police.
