All The Pretender episodes

Bazooka Jarod is the thirteenth episode of the first season of The Pretender which first aired February 8, 1997 on NBC in the United States.


Bazooka Jarod opens with a "previously on The Pretender" voiceover. Sydney and Miss Parker tracked Jarod's last whereabouts to a sewer system.

Miss Parker finds something interesting in the location where Jarod always emerged from the sewer right opposite South Delaware Children's Home, and investigates the children documented in the "Rescued" envelope she had received from Ben Miller.

Jarod pretends to be a naval Commander (Forrester) aboard the USS Monroe to uncover the truth about the death of a young engineer who had been killed because of what he knew and the incident blamed on a botched seal.
