 [The Original Unofficial NASH BRIDGES]

* "HARD CELL"
Girl Power
April 14, 2000

All the Boys are back in force, so in a Yin and Yang kind of balance, the Girls come out in force too. A rough and ready girl gang escapes and goes in search of stolen bearer bonds. The girls handle guns well and wear body armor. They shoot up Harvey's beloved Ranchero.

The girl gang is ready for violence and they go down hard. One is shot dead in a furious exchange of gunfire, and another gives the 'Cuda a run for the money. As a matter of fact, all the women in this episode are prepared for violence. When a woman is about to get her minivan carjacked, she fights back with a martial arts style kick before getting subdued. Cassidy goes to the shooting range with Nash, and she expertly punches out her paper target.

But just to prove it's not Boys Against the Girls, Nash helps out Rose in a subversive way. He buys her a ticket out of town, deliberately letting Rose escape with her daughter Brittany. Rose and daughter are presumably on their way to a better life in Canada. But how does this almost vigilante style of personal justice mesh with Nash, the police officer sworn to uphold the law?

Cassidy asks Nash: "Are you really as cynical about the government as you sound?" To which Nash, the hold-over 1970s style cop responds: "I'm a guy that likes to put people ahead of institutions..." The view of institutions, most notably the prison system, is presented in NASH vision - it's Diana that calls the guard away to the van, to which an all too familiar routine seems to be in place. She starts to remove her clothes to have sex with the guard - this is an institution that deserves some running as far and as fast away from as one can, especially for women.
