Murder in the First” Season 2 Episode 6 “Oh, Mexico” aired last Monday, July 13, 2015, at 10:00 p.m. on TNT. In this episode, San Francisco Police Department Homicide Inspector Terry English (Taye Diggs) and San Francisco Police Department Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) continued to investigate the murder of Homicide Detective Kaleb Peat (Adam O’Byrne), while Gang Task Unit Officer Raffi Veracruz (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Homicide Officer Marty “Junior” Mulligan (A.J. Buckley) investigated the death of Jalil Thompson (Jayce Dempsey). Meanwhile, Jamie Nelson (Laila Robbins) began digging into Dustin Maker’s (Mateus Ward) suspicious accident when he was six years old, and Malcolm “Suger” Cascade (Mo McRae) became worried about his missing sister, only to make a disturbing discovery. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Malcolm “Suger” Cascade (Mo McRae) discovering that his sister, Tenea Cascade, had been released early from prison. However, as the day went by, he became increasingly frustrated. It was after discovering that he couldn’t get in touch with her at all and that she hadn’t even swung by their mother’s place. Later, he became even more worried after discovering that Tenea lived in a building owned by the Chans.

At court, Judge Templeton (Alan Blumenfield) ordered that Dustin Maker (Mateus Ward) undergo another psychological evaluation. It would be done by a doctor prescribed by the court before he even considered accepting Dustin’s guilty plea. Later, Jamie Nelson (Laila Robbins) paid a visit to Dustin’s parents. He became disturbed that neither of them had gone to take care of Dustin at the hospital when his arm had been shattered in a machine accident while staying his uncle for the summer. It was especially as he had been six years old at that time.

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Jim Koto (Ian Anthony Dale) got a surprise visit from his father and Chief Hernandez (Geoffrey Rivas), as the chief promoted him. However, Koto was reluctant to leave his department alone.

Afterwards, he instructed Homicide Inspector Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) to continue looking into the death of Homicide Detective Kaleb Peat (Adam O’Byrne). He told Homicide Officer Marty “Junior” Mulligan (A.J. Buckley) to investigate the death of Jalil Thompson (Jayce Dempsey). Later, Gang Task Unit Officer Raffi Veracruz (Emmanuelle Chriqui) decided to help Junior in his investigation. However, they didn’t get many leads from the security camera footage at the Juvenile Detention Center where Jalil had been.

Homicide Inspector David Molk (Raphael Sbarge) then went to Homicide Inspector Edgar Navarro’s (Lombardo Boyar) house as he hadn’t been to the office in quite a while. However, he discovered that no one was home, and saw some Nazi Brotherhood members staking out the house..

Back at the department, after discovering that Kaleb had notes on some of the members of the Nazi Brotherhood, and had sent Navarro’s personal information to some gang members, they talked to Junior’s criminal informant within the Brotherhood at a strip club. There, they discovered that the Brotherhood was after Navarro’s younger brother, who had just been released. The Brotherhood had gotten Navarro’s family’s details from Kaleb, who was on the Brotherhood’s payroll. After talking to Molk, they realized that Navarro was going to flee to Mexico.

At the morgue, Raffi and Junior discovered that Jalil’s body had gone missing. Medical Examiner Justin Burnside (Jamie McShane) then ruled it as an “inside job.”

Later, Koto confronted Terry about the truth behind Kaleb’s death. He had received an interesting report regarding the criminal informant that Junior and Hildy had talked to. After looping Koto in, their hunch that Navarro was escaping to Mexico paid off. He had withdrawn ten thousand dollars using his card, as the customs official who was supposed to let them in had demanded ten thousand more than Navarro had on hand.

At court, the judge accepted Dustin’s guilty plea. He told them that the sentencing hearing would be scheduled after several weeks.

At Suger’s, Suger hooked up with his girlfriend but wasn’t really concentrating. He then received a box which contained a note that read “Blood for Blood,” and Tenea’s severed head.

And that was all for the recap on “Murder in the First” Season 2 Episode 6 ”Oh, Mexico.” For more news, updates and recaps on “Murder in the First” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
