Ham Dewey ( Kenneth Johnson), the partner/lover of Holly Hunter's hellraising detective on Saving Grace (Mondays, 10 pm/ET, TNT), suffers a personal blow tonight when his kid brother Ralph goes missing in Afghanistan.

"Ham's tripping out because he wants answers," Johnson says. "He thinks Ralph is going to be on video and beheaded. "What's more, Ham's having problems with Grace, who, as usual, is distracted by a case and not focusing on their relationship.

This time, a collision with a drunk driver reveals a secret cache of cash in Grace's beat-up Porsche. The money is linked to "the murder of a highway patrolman 30 years ago, so she brings the car's former owners in for questioning," Johnson says. "One of them is Barry Switzer, who plays himself."

And if the former Dallas Cowboys coach thought owner Jerry Jones was tough, just wait'll he gets a load of Grace. - G J Donnelly
