In the penultimate episode, Homicide Lieutenant Inspector Terry English (Taye Diggs), Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) and Lieutenant Jim Koto (Ian Anthony Dale), with the help of Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti (Currie Graham) and Homicide Officer Marty “Junior” McCormack (AJ Buckley), began cracking down on Management Control’s Nick Torres’ (David Figlioli) arm of the Union. A shocking discovery led to them discovering who was running a prostitution ring out of the club where Alyssa (Jade Tailor) worked, and in a surprise twist, Anthony “Suger” Cascade (Mo McRae) discovered a new threat to Protrero, and to his own life. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode picked up right after the events of the previous episode, wherein Homicide Lieutenant Inspector Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) took Management Control’s Nick Torres (David Figlioli) to a safe house, where he was questioned and confronted by the pair and by Homicide Officer Marty “Junior” McCormack (AJ Buckley), who believed that Torres was the head man of the Union. However, Torres insisted that he wasn’t, and looked surprised to hear about Commander Michael Criolla’s (Billy Malone) death. He then accepted Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti’s (Currie Graham) deal, in which he would give up the names of those who were under him, as he was a captain in the Union, and would drop Junior’s money off at the designated drop off point. In return, he would resign from the force and receive no charges against him.
However, the next day, they discovered that they had been set up as the one who came to pick up the cash was a clueless teenager.
Meanwhile, at a salon, Anthony “Suger” Cascade (Mo McRae) warned Fatty B (Hopsin) not to do anything, and to dig some more into the supposed witness that was going to testify against him.
While that happened, Alyssa (Jade Tailor) went to Homicide Inspector David Molk’s (Raphael Sbarge) place, and confessed that she didn’t want to go back to work anymore.
At prison, Jamie Nelson (Laila Robbins) visited Dustin Maker (Mateus Ward), whom she tried to comfort, despite the fact that she herself was lonely due to her recent divorce.
Back at the station, Lieutenant Jim Koto (Ian Anthony Dale) and Siletti managed to put away five cops. However, Terry still couldn’t understand why the pick- up hadn’t happened earlier that day, and wondered why they couldn’t connect Torres to Criolla’s death or Sarah Tran’s murder.
Later, Hildy, much to the annoyance of Junior, re-interviewed his witness, Marissa Lee (Angela Lin), in the case against Suger, as Sergeant Raphaelle “Raffi” Veracruz (Emmanuelle Chiqrui) had warned them that Marissa was an unreliable witness, as she had dealt with her before. After the interview, Hildy discovered that Marissa had indeed been lying to them.
Later on, after spending some time with Alyssa, Molk told Terry that Alyssa had told him that she knew that there was prostitution going on at the Invisible Hand, and that a cop was running it, which made them suspect Junior, as he was the only cop that they had seen there, and because all the girls went to him.
After informing Hildy, Terry confronted Junior, and told him that he had one minute to confess and to resign from the force with no charges on his record, thanks to his sister. After admitting to it, he told Hildy that he had called Alyssa to cancel the pick up earlier on.
Meanwhile, Suger confronted Fatty B in his car, as he had known that he had told Andy Chan (George Kee Chung) that he was going to take over Suger’s empire. Fatty B then drew a gun on him, and took his gun. However, as Fatty B hesitated to pull the trigger, Suger got back his gun, and the two face each other, guns pointed at each other.
