Sorry announcing the episode number faultily; obviously my mind got confused by the 1-8-7 of the series title and the date of the press release’s release (it was released on Feb. 18) The episode “Motor City Blues” in which Alicia appears, isn’t 1×18 but 1×17.
Just now I read a new announcement from ABC (so it’s kinda fortunate that I made that mistake earlier, otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed this)

DETROIT 1-8-7 (3/15) -- EPISODE CHANGE
** EPISODE CHANGE **
"Motor City Blues" - An explosive event sets the stage for emotional shifts in the lives of the detectives [...] Finally, when Fitch's ex-wife flies to Detroit to leave their son for a planned visit, she drops some shocking news on her ex. Little does Fitch know that he, his son and the other detectives will soon all be in great jeopardy, on "Detroit 1-8-7," TUESDAY, MARCH 15 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Note: This episode replaces "Blackout" which moves to Sunday, March 20.
So, the episode doesn’t air March 8 but a week later.
By the way, Alicia won’t be in the episode after Motor City Blues, “Blackout”(source: ABC). So let’s hope the series won’t get cancelled, then we might see her again in the second season.
