In this episode, San Francisco Police Department Gang Unit and Tactical Officer Rafaela “Raffi” Veracruz (Emmanuelle Chiqrui) became worried as San Francisco Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan’s (Kathleen Robertson) involvement with the murder at the grow house began to affect her operation to finally close in on kingpin Malcolm “Suger” Monroe (Mo McRae). Meanwhile, Jamie Nelson (Laila Robbins) became Dustin Maker’s (Mateus Ward) lawyer, and several startling discoveries were made regarding Homicide Officer Kaleb Peat’s (Adam O’Byrne) death and the missing undercover officer. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with Jamie Nelson (Laila Robbins) stepping up to protect Dustin Maker (Mateus Ward) from getting transferred out of the hospital to the county jail.
The next morning, San Francisco Homicide Inspector Hildy Mulligan’s (Kathleen Robertson) and Homicide Inspector Edgar Navarro (Lombardo Boyar) paid a visit to Mrs. Thompson (Lyn Alicia Henderson), the mother of Jalil Thompson (Jayce Dempsey). He confessed to murdering a member of a different crew in a grow house, even though they all knew that he hadn’t done it. After refusing to talk to them, the two discovered that Mrs. Thompson now had a new television with surround sound.
Afterwards, Malcolm “Suger” Monroe (Mo McRae) decided to teach his nephew, the one who Jalil was covering for, a lesson by binding his arms, legs, and mouth in duct tape. He threw him into a wall, which they nail gunned shut.
Meanwhile, Homicide Officer Marty “Junior” Mulligan (A.J. Buckley) and Homicide Inspector David Molk (Raphael Sbarge) paid a visit to the strip club where missing undercover officer Sarah Tran worked at. He learned that it seemed like she had problems at home with her husband. Afterwards, Molk decided to accept the lap dance that Junior had paid for him.
San Francisco Police Department Gang Unit and Tactical Officer Rafaela “Raffi” Veracruz (Emmanuelle Chiqrui) and her partner, Gang Unit Officer Isaiah “Zai” Wilson (Jason E. Kelley), then paid a visit to their criminal informant, Sharisse (Diandra Lyle). It led them right into one of Suger’s money stash houses, only to learn that they had been set up. Suger had grown more cautious ever since Hildy and Navarro stepped on his turf, which made Raffi upset. It was since she had only been one week away from arresting the biggest kingpin in the area, and let Hildy know so.
Back at the station, Dustin’s parents informed Hildy that they never noticed any signs of violence from him before. At the lobby, Jamie Nelson and Aaron Mazur (Adam Kulbresh) encouraged them not to talk to the cops without Aaron present. Jamie then asked if Dustin had been abused as a child, but they told them that he hadn’t been abused. Jamie didn’t believe it as Dustin fit the profile of someone who had been exposed to violence at a young age. It caused him to feel that he wasn’t of any use in this life. Later on, a psychological evaluation was given to Dustin, in which he was found to be very much sane.
Lieutenant Jim Koto (Ian Anthony Dale) stepped in for a bit to get some folders of some pending cases, and Lieutenant Terry English (Taye Diggs) discovered that Officer Kaleb Peat (Adam O’Byrne) had talked to Captain Ernie Knubbins (John Corthran) the night before he had killed himself. Later that night, Terry waited for Raffi after a Jewish service in order talk, and she broke things off with him. She knew that a relationship with him wouldn’t be very healthy for her.
Later that night, Jamie informed her partner, Holly (Ingrid Rogers), that she was taking Dustin’s case. It caused Holly to become upset as she knew that her partner would just be focused on the case.
The next day, Raffi talked to Suger. Before leaving, she threatened him as she knew all about his sister.
Afterwards, Suger released his nephew, who was still alive, and who had learned his lesson.
Back at the station, Brian Tran (Eugene Shaw) came in. He let them hear a message from his wife who was alive and just wanted some space to think about things. Afterwards, Hildy and Terry were called by Medical Examiner Justin Burnside (Jamie McShane). He had discovered, in his second examination of Kaleb’s body, that Kaleb hadn’t killed himself as there was a blow torch burn done posthumously on his chin.
