Episode 315 – “Heartbeat”




 Written by Doug Heyes, Jr.

Directed by Terence H. Winkless


Palermo and “BAYWATCH” lifeguard LANI MacKENZIE launch a new program called M.E.R.I.T. that puts paramedics on bikes alongside the Pacific Blue units on the boardwalk.  One of the paramedics, ALEXA CHOLAK, is an ex-girlfriend of Tony Palermo.  After a bomb blast, she administers CPR to an injured Palermo — violating triage policy and putting her career and the M.E.R.I.T. program in danger when a woman dies at the scene.

T.C. and Chris investigate the activities of a radical environmental group suspected in several terrorist actions against a local oil company, including the bombing of an office park in which one of the company’s executives is killed.
